Our second manuka face mask is enhanced by the powerful antioxidant-rich & skin brightening properties of turmeric and by the acne- and dark-spot-fighting power of cinnamon. This mask is also perfect for rejuvenating dull-looking skin for a brighter complexion.

For more information on how manuka honey benefits the skin, see our first post in the series.


(For Acne-Prone Skin, Dull Skin And/Or Dark Spots)


  • 1 tablespoon Flora Mānuka Honey (MGO 250+/10+ UMF or higher)
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon grapeseed or jojoba oil

Combine all the ingredients and leave on for 10 to 30 minutes, then rinse.

Be aware that turmeric can temporarily stain your skin. If you have fairer skin, add a couple of drops of jojoba or grapeseed oil and double the amount of cinnamon to reduce the chances of staining.
