I'll put up a series of these seeing as they are so long. All these I found and did not make up myself so don't go blamin' me if anything goes wrong! It invlolves food and can get stinky/messy.

These masks help to fight and treat acne not perform a miracle! lol.


Home-made Masks: ACNE

CAUTION: Don't apply any acne facial masks more often than about twice a week, and try to vary ingredients. Test your home-made acne masks on the inside of your wrist before putting on face incase of allergic reaction.





ACNE MASK 1:
Peel and mash eight cloves of fresh garlic. Apply to face avoiding the eye area. Leave on for about 15 minutes. Wash off with a warm wash cloth. Finish with a rinse of vinegar to help balance pH.​
ACNE MASK 2:
Make a face pack using bran plus baking soda and water. Mix into a paste, applying to face, leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with a solution of 1 part apple cider vinegar and 8 parts water.​
ACNE MASK 3:
1 tsp. of Groundnut oil mixed with an equal amount of lime juice can be applied daily to prevent the formation of blackheads, pimples and helps with the treatment of acne.​
ACNE MASK 4:
Get some rosewater in a bowl. Add equal amount of cucumber paste in it. Stir until mixed well. Apply to face for 20 minutes. This helps in controlling pimples.​
ACNE MASK 5:
After washing the face rinse with any of the following herb infusions:
  • chamomile: is purifying
  • yarrow: eliminates toxins
  • catnip: an antiseptic
  • lavender: an antiseptic
  • thyme: a strong germ killer
ACNE MASK 6:
Tumeric paste mixed in with chana dal powder or whole wheat flower are very effective home-made acne masks. Haldi powder mixed with sugarcane juice helps to remove pimples.​
ACNE MASK 7:
Mint. Peppermint is an excellent antiseptic wash for acne.​

Please do not try the garlic mask. Garlic is very very strong, and has actually left blisters and burn marks on peoples skin.

thanks for the warning! I did not make up these masks or anything. I got them from this organic something website where you can make your own natural masks at home. But really? Leave blisters n burns? sheesh.

lol ok i have tried the garlic before and it didnt leave burn marks but it stung realllllly bad though i did notice the few spots i applied it, my zits dried up like super fast. ive also tried the turmeric and be very careful to dilute it with SOMETHINg and put a very small dosage in because it will literally turn your skin A BRIGHT yellow that will probably freak you out.
some masks i like:
honey (drips though to you have to be careful and use a towel at all times to catch the drips. oh and it moisterizes and reduces acne)
milk of magnesia (reduces oil production)
yogurt (lactic acid to gently exfoliate and moisterize)
green clay and water (can find green clay powder at whole foods)
egg white (tightens pores)
