Mix 1 tablespoon of honey with 1.5 teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Wash your face with a facial cleanser and pat your face dry. Also, consider once or twice a week to use a gentle exfoliant.
Then apply a thin layer of the honey-cinnamon mix to your face in the same way you'd put on a facial mask. Leave it on for about 15 minutes and then wash your face for a quick mask. It is recommended to apply the paste to any problem areas before bed and wash it off in the morning with warm water.

Have you ever heard of putting toothpaste on pimples to relieve swollen and red pimples?! Well, if not, let me tell you about this little trick.
Does it matter what toothpaste you use? YES, "toothpaste usually contains alcohol--which dries the pimple--and contains drying components like chalk. If you have very dry skin, do not use a toothpaste with a lot of alcohol. Toothpaste's drying components collect moisture and oil from the skin, drawing it out of the pimple." (ehow.com) Also, gel toothpastes don't hold up as well as regular toothpaste because it doesn't dry out enough like the regular toothpaste does to help get rid of redness/swelling as well as it doesn't absorb much moisture from pimples.
So this quick inexpensive fix is good to try and see how it works with your skin. Just test it on on a small area before covering your whole face (if it's needed). Also try peppermint toothpaste for a cooling sensation for irritated areas!
