Awesome Face Mask And Scrub To Combat Acne
Written by: Brandi Monasco
Don’t you just HATE waking up in the morning to see a pimple, or even the beginning of a pimple forming on your face? What is even worse is when you get a pimple or a little bit of acne before a major event like a wedding or family portraits.
No one likes that!
Acne can affect anyone between the age of 12 and 25 and sometimes older and younger people get it as well. Many times it can be the cause of an increase of hormones such as if you are pregnant or even if you’re taking birth control pills.
No matter what causes acne, you still probably feel the need to remedy it. Instead of running to the store to pick up a bottle that is full of toxins and chemicals or piling on a ton of makeup to cover your acne, try these homemade acne face masks instead!
Cinnamon And Honey Acne Face Mask
You will need:
- Powdered cinnamon
- A bowl
- A teaspoon
1. Place 1 teaspoon of powdered cinnamon in the bowl.
2. Add 2 teaspoons of honey.
3. Mix the ingredients together until they blended well. If you find that the mixture is too thick, add more honey.
1. Dampen your face.
2. Using your fingers, slather the mixture on your face.
3. Leave the mixture on for at least 15 minutes.
4. Rinse the mixture off with lukewarm water.
5. Apply a toner of just lemon juice or a mixture of one part apple cider vinegar and two parts water.
6. You can use this face mask daily.
Apple Cider Vinegar Face Scrub
You will need:
1. Put 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in the bowl.
2. Add two teaspoons of cooled green tea.
3. Add 5 teaspoons of sugar.
4. Put one teaspoon of honey.
5. Stir the mixture well. If you want the mixture to be thick, add more sugar.
To Use: Spread the mask on your face using a cotton ball or cotton pad and massage it into your skin for a few minutes. This helps to remove dead skin cells and improve circulation in your skin.
