Spoon Measurement Terms

In some of our articles, and for non-liquid ingredients, we use the measurements ‘One Spoon,’ ‘Rounded Spoon,’ and ‘Heaped Spoon’, to measure the quantity of ingredients, rather than precise measurements in grams or ounces. This is because adding a little more or less of the ingredient does not affect the final product. Both tablespoons and teaspoons follow these guidelines. Here’s a brief explanation of these terms:

  • One Spoon: Fill the ingredient in a measuring spoon, leveling it with a straight edge.
  • Rounded Spoon: More than a level measurement, with the ingredient piled above the spoon’s edge in a rounded shape.
  • Heaped Spoon: The non-liquid ingredient is scooped as high as possible on a spoon.

This face mask is very easy to make. It is prepared in a few steps.

1- Put 1/2 rounded teaspoon of cinnamon in a small bowl.

How to Use

Here’s a step-by-step guide for using the DIY Face Mask for Acne: Cinnamon Honey Blend.

  1. Prepare Fresh: Mix the cinnamon and honey together just before application to ensure maximum potency.
  2. Apply Liberally: Use your fingers or a brush to apply the mask generously on areas affected by acne, including the face and any other problematic areas on the body.
  3. Allow Absorption Time: Let the mask sit undisturbed on your skin for 10-20 minutes. This duration allows the skin to absorb the antibacterial and soothing properties of the ingredients effectively.
  4. Rinse Thoroughly: After the designated time, gently wash your face and any other areas with lukewarm water. Ensure all remnants of the mask are removed to prevent irritation.
  5. Weekly Usage: Incorporate this treatment into your skincare routine once a week for best results. Consistency is key in managing acne and promoting healthier skin.
  6. Consult a Dermatologist: While this DIY remedy can help with mild acne, it’s essential to seek professional advice for severe or persistent skin issues. A dermatologist can provide personalized recommendations and medical treatments tailored to your specific needs.


Using the Cinnamon Honey Blend face mask offers several benefits:

  1. Natural Antibacterial Properties: Cinnamon and honey both possess antibacterial properties, helping to combat acne-causing bacteria on the skin’s surface.
  2. Soothing Effects: Honey is known for its calming and moisturizing properties, which can help soothe inflamed or irritated skin.
  3. Exfoliation: Cinnamon acts as a gentle exfoliant, helping to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, which can prevent future breakouts.
  4. Clearer Complexion: Regular use of this mask can lead to a clearer complexion by reducing the appearance of blemishes and promoting healthier skin overall.
  5. Convenience: With just two simple ingredients, this DIY face mask offers a convenient and cost-effective solution for managing acne at home.
  6. Promotes Skin Health: By nourishing the skin with natural ingredients, this mask helps to maintain skin health and vitality over time.

Incorporating this natural remedy into your skincare routine can lead to smoother, clearer skin without the use of harsh chemicals or artificial ingredients.
