Fight Acne: DIY Face Masks


By Joburg Post

Wave goodbye to acne skin with homemade natural remedies  this winter. 


OATMEAL & COCONUT OIL FACE MASK 


Coconut oil has antibacterial and antifungal properties, so it’s an ideal choice to help fight acne. Add to that the soothing and pH-balancing power of oatmeal, and you’ve got an amazing recipe for clearer skin.

OATMEAL & COCONUT OIL FACE MASK INGREDIENTS

  • Coconut oil
  • Oatmeal
  • Warm water

OATMEAL & COCONUT OIL FACE MASK RECIPE

Scoop 3 tablespoons of oatmeal into a mixing bowl.

Add ¼ cup of warm water.

Mix until you’ve made a paste.

Add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and mix well.

Wash your face and neck with warm water and an oil-free cleanser to cleanse your face and open pores.

Apply the mixture and let it sit for 15 minutes.

When the 15 minutes are up, gently massage your entire face using small circular motions for another 2 minutes. This brief massage will help remove dead skin cells, that if left, can clog pores.

Finally, rinse the mask off with cool or lukewarm water.

Pat your skin dry with a soft, clean towel.

AVO & VIT E MASK

Vitamin E is a powerful immune system booster when taken orally, which also makes it great for treating and preventing stubborn acne-prone skin. But the benefits don’t end there. When Vitamin E oil is applied directly to your skin, over time, it can help reduce the appearance of stubborn acne scars.

This beneficial vitamin is naturally found in green, leafy vegetables and some nuts, like almonds. You can also purchase Vitamin E as an oil for topical application.

For even more acne-fighting benefits, mix a Vitamin E oil with avocado. When combined, these ingredients produce a powerful anti-acne due for a clearer complexion.

AVOCADO & VITAMIN E FACE MASK INGREDIENTS

  • Vitamin E oil
  • Avocado

AVOCADO & VITAMIN E FACE MASK RECIPE

Remove the pit and skin from half of an avocado.

Mash the avocado in a mixing bowl.

Add 1 teaspoon of Vitamin E oil.

Mix well.

Wash your face and neck with warm water and an oil-free cleanser to remove makeup and open pores.

Apply the mask and let it dry for 15 minutes.

Remove the mask with lukewarm water first, then splash your face with cool water to close your pores.

Gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel.

HONEY, OAT & WHOLE MILK FACE MASK
