I decided to look into acne home remedies when I stumbled unto an article stating vegans have more salicylic acid in their blood. Not only do many fruits and veggies provide it but so do herbs and spices in even greater quantity. It made sense to me that honey mixed with nutmeg or cinnamon would actually work, and it does. Simply make a paste with the ingredients above adding sugar and lime/lemon juice to thin it out. Don't get hung up on amounts, and don't hesitate to try it. Keeping this on all night this will help with acne scarring as well, otherwise a 15 minute mask will show improvement. After doing this once or twice you will want to keep it on, because if it works for you you will know. I grate my own cinnamon/nutmeg but already ground should work fine.
