Nutmeg And Honey To Reduce Acne Scars
Posted April 24, 2009on:
Because of my itchy fingers, I have some bad acne scars on my cheeks. I was trying to look for something that would help reduce them and I came across this post a few weeks back. Nutmeg supposedly has anti-inflammatory properties. I was a bit skeptic at first, but since the ingredients were accessible (I bought everything from Walgreens for under US$5), why not?
I didn’t really follow through the whole post, but all I did was mix a half a spoonful of nutmeg and a spoonful of honey (raw if possible) and mixed it into a paste. Then I applied it to my scars and left it on for about 35 minutes. There’s a bit of tingling when you first apply it, but it goes away. Then I rinsed it out and noticed that the area wasn’t dry and tight like it use to be. The area was much smoother and I really liked that. I’ve been using it for about more than a week now and the scars have slowly diminished. Either than the smell, I’m pretty happy with it and will continue to use it. Its said that if you use aloe vera after, the results are much faster. I ran out of aloe vera, so I only got to try it a few times. Milk is said to work too, but makes your skin a little sensitive. If you’re allergic to nutmeg or honey, I’d advise you not to try it.
