DIY Beauty: Top 5 Homemade Acne Masks

Hey guys!

With this short guide I've prepared for ya you'll find out how to make homemade acne mask from few simple ingredients. You might be surprised to find that you already have several acne treatments right in your own home. For easier start I've selected top five acne mask recipes which you can use for your struggle with breakouts.

1. Aspirin Honey Mask
In a mug, drop the aspirin (5-8 tablets) in with just enough water to create a paste consistency. Let the aspirin dissolve in the water (you can mix a bit if necessary). If it seems a bit too pasty, add more water. Once you have your paste at the consistency that you like, you can apply to skin as is. However, I find that by adding 1 teaspoon of organic honey, the mask is less drying to the skin. 

2. Lemon Egg White Honey Mask
Mix everything together until smooth and apply to a clean, freshly washed face. Allow the mask to dry, and then rinse well. 

3. Cinnamon Honey Mask
Mix honey (3 teaspoons) and cinnamon (1/2 teaspoon) together, and apply to your face. Make sure you use organic raw honey and it is pure cinnamon and not cinnamon sugar because that does not work as well.

4. Lemon Yogurt Honey Mask
Whip together the following ingredients until the desired consistency is reached and spread the mixture on your face: 
1/4 cup of greek yogurt
2 tablespoons of honey
1 tablespoon of lemon juice

5. Strawberry Honey Brown Sugar Mask
Create a pulp from strawberries by mashing them with fork, and place pulpy strawberries into a bowl. Add 1 tbsp of honey, and 1 tbsp on brown sugar. Stir until combined. Then apply mask to your face.

How to Use:
Apply to the face, jaw, chest, back – any area that is prone to breakouts. Leave on for 7-15 minutes. This is great for men too. Use up to two times a week but make sure that you make a new batch each time you use. Remove masks with a warm cloth. Tone & moisturize. Make sure to use a moisturizer with an SPF, as the lemon juice can leave your skin sensitive to the sun.

You could also sub the honey for olive oil if your skin is extra dry or irritated. I’ve read that people use jojoba oil and tea tree oil as well. It really is a matter of personal preference and what benefit you are going after.

You will notice an immediate glow to the skin once you rinse off these masks. Skin will feel heavenly soft and look luminous. Blackheads should decrease after the first use as well. Enjoy!
