DIY Face Masks For Acne-Prone Skin

January 13, 2018 by Samantha Peters
shefinds | beauty

At some point in your life, you’ve probably experienced acne. While your pimply teenage years may be behind you, it’s completely normal to still experience breakouts every now and then. Annoying, we know, but not impossible to cure. In fact, these DIY face masks are just the remedy you’ll need to curb blemishes fast – just in time for that date tomorrow night or interview you’ve been prepping for all week. Read on to find out how to make the perfect acne-fighting face masks in your very own home.

Oatmeal Facial

Oatmeal not only makes a tasty breakfast but a great facial, too! Just as the oats soak up water in your bowl, they’ll also absorb oil on your skin. What’s more, oatmeal is naturally soothing, so it will help reduce redness. The addition of honey provides even more blemish-busting power, as this ingredient kills the bacteria that forms those dreaded bumps.

Additional note: Use this mask as needed. Since it is very gentle on the skin, it can be used as often as every day.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 cup hot (not boiling) water
  • 1/3 cup oatmeal
  •  2 tablespoons plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 small egg white

Follow These Steps:

1.Combine the water and oatmeal and let it sit for two to three minutes.

2. Mix the yogurt, honey, and egg white into your concoction.

3. Apply a thin layer of the mask to your face for about 10 to 15 minutes.

4. Rinse off the mask with warm water. For this step, it’s extremely important to place a strainer in your sink so that the drain isn’t clogged by any granules.

Clay & Vinegar Mask

If you find that your pimples are especially deep and painful, this next mask may be a great option for you. Clay tightens the skin, reduces the size of pores, and absorb oils. It also contains several minerals that help boost the overall appearance and health of your complexion. Meanwhile, apple cider vinegar is an antibacterial astringent that can help zap zits from the source.

Additional note: It’s recommended that you use this mask once every three days to avoid drying out your skin.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 tablespoon clay
  • Apple cider vinegar

Follow These Steps:

1. Place the clay in a bowl.

2. Add enough apple cider vinegar until you get a paste.

3. Mix your concoction thoroughly and apply to your face.

4. Let it sit for about 30 minutes until it completely dries. If your skin is more sensitive, however, let it sit for only about 15 to 20 minutes.

5. Rinse off the mask with warm water.

Aloe Vera Face Mask

In addition to having both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, Aloe Vera is also great for fading stubborn acne scars. Add a bit of tea tree oil into the mix to further treat infection and reduce inflammation.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 tablespoon Aloe Vera gel
  • 2 or 3 drops of tea tree essential oil

Follow These Steps:

1. Combine the Aloe Vera gel and tea tree oil in a bowl.

2. Mix the blend well until you have a uniform consistency.

3. Wash your face completely then apply the mask with a brush or just your fingers.

4. Wash off the mask with cold water after 10 to 15 minutes.

Additional note: It’s recommended that you use this mask every other day to successfully treat acne and fade scars.
