2 Face Masks For Acne DIY

Are you one of those who prefer using safe ingredients that you can mixed together yourself? If you are this two masks are amazing for you!AS A NATURAL FACE WASH AND MOISTURIZER:

OATMEAL MASK

Why it’s effective: Oatmeal contains saponins, a phytochemical that serves as a natural lather and possesses soap-like qualities. Saponins are also a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.

Ingredients:

– ½ cup of water

– 1/3 cup of finely-ground oatmeal

– 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt

– 2 tablespoons of honey

– 1 small to medium-sized egg white

 

Directions:

– Bring the water to a simmer (hot but not boiling).

– Add the oatmeal and allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes.

– Add the 2 tbsp. of plain yogurt, 2 tbsp. of honey, and the egg white.

– Mix the ingredients in a small, plastic bowl.

– Using clean hands, apply a thin layer of the oatmeal mix onto your face.

– Allow the mask to remain for 15 minutes.

– Rinse your face thoroughly with warm water.

– If you have any extra, you can refrigerate it for up to three days.

NATURAL HONEY-AVOCADO MASK

Why it’s effective: Natural (non-processed) honey is a power skin hydrator. It also works as a natural antibacterial and antioxidant, and is an excellent moisturizer that helps to soothe the skin. The concoction also includes olive oil and mango, which both help to soften the skin. Because of its high concentration of vitamin C, mango provides a bit of a brightening effect. All of these qualities make it one of the most healthy and refreshing (but potent) face masks for acne!

Ingredients:

Two tablespoons each of:

– avocado

– olive oil

– natural honey

– 1 mango

Directions:

– Mash the mango thoroughly in a small bowl.

– Add the avocado, honey, and olive oil to the mango.

– Mix thoroughly.

– Using clean hands, apply a generous layer to your face, making sure to cover every area.

– Allow the mix to remain for about 15 minutes and remove with a warm cloth. (If you prefer to rinse your face, you can, but the recipe works best if the mixture is simply wiped off per the recipe provided.)

– If you have extra, you can refrigerate it for up to two days.

Bonus:

COFFEE BEAN-COCOA MASK

Why it’s effective: Our final of the three face masks for acne helps kill off those pesky toxins that so often find their way below the skin’s surface. Coffee beans are a natural exfoliator, which serves primarily to remove dead skin while adding a bit of brightness to your complexion. Cocoa powder kills off free radicals and is a strong antioxidant; it also helps to detoxify the skin of pollutants and other harmful substances.

Ingredients:

– 1 cup of unsweetened, whole milk (almond milk is a viable alternative)

– ½ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder

– ½ cup of finely ground coffee beans

– 1 tablespoon of honey

– 1 tablespoon of lemon juice

Directions:

– First, in a small bowl, mix the coffee grounds with the cocoa powder.

– Next, pour in the whole milk (or almond milk) and stir the mixture into a paste (to thicken, add some more.)

– Finally, pour in the lemon juice and honey, adding a final stir.

– Using clean hands, apply a thin layer to your face and allow it to sit for around 15 or 20 minutes.

– Wash your face thoroughly with warm water.

– If you have any extra, you can refrigerate it for up to three days.
