When it comes to Bollywood hottie Malaika Arora’s beauty routine, she swears by natural home remedies for her skin and hair. The 46-year-old is known for her age-defying skin, luscious locks and impeccable fashion sense. The stunner is very active on Instagram and has been sharing some recipes from her relatable beauty regime. After sharing a body scrub recipe, the actress posted yet another secret recipe on her channel.

In the video shared by her, she revealed the three ingredients she uses for acne removal. Malaika makes a paste of cinnamon, honey and lime, which she applies on her face for 10 minutes. “This is something that works beautifully for acne-prone skin and breakouts, keeps it in check,” the actress revealed in her video. Malaika recommends using this mask 1-2 times a week for acne-prone skin. However, she also suggests avoiding the sensitive area around eyes and mouth while applying the face mask.

Here’s how these three ingredients can benefit your skin

Honey: It is loaded with antibacterial properties which can work really well on acne. It can help to draw out excess fluid and reduce the size of an inflamed pimple.

Cinnamon: This ingredient is known to have anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. This spice combined with honey makes it a great combination for acne. It can help to kill the bacteria and also heal the skin.

Lime: This citrus fruit is loaded with antioxidants and Vitamin C, which can help to boost collagen levels. However, direct application or too much lemon juice can lead to dryness, burning and redness.
