Trying Natural Masks for acne

Acne medications are one way to prevent breakouts, but they come with other side effects including dry skin, discoloration, and irritation/sensitivity at the problem area. Besides the numerous side effects chemical treatments have on your skin, they are expensive. Stick with mother nature and save some money at the same time by trying home remedies using natural ingredients to get rid of your acne.

Make a honey mask. We ought to thank the bees for the sweet elixir they’ve given us that not only adds flavor to our favorite foods, but also works wonders on reducing acne. Honey is a natural antibiotic, and its sticky consistency works to pull up dirt and grime. Mix two tablespoons of honey with a teaspoon of cinnamon, and apply it over your face. Allow it to set for 5-10 minutes, and then rinse it off with warm water.

Use Toothpaste. Apply some toothpaste directly on top of the acne and keep it overnight, as a mask or for an hour. Wash it with water and a soft cloth. This will make the acne less visible.
  • Use steam to open your pores before using the mask to help the honey and cinnamon work its way down into your pores.
  • To help clean out bacteria, press your fingers into the honey and pull up quickly. This will work to clear out especially dirty pores, such as open blackheads.
Use an overnight fenugreek mask. The leaves from the fenugreek plant have long been used to help with skin issues of the face. Crush up several of these leaves to form a thick paste, and then apply it onto your acne-prone areas. Leave this on overnight, and then rinse it off with warm water in the morning. It should help to reduce the redness and swelling, as well as the further spread of bacteria.

Use garlic. Garlic may have a strong scent and taste, but it also has antiseptic properties that kill the bacteria trapped in your pores. Try cutting a clove of garlic in half, and rubbing the juice on your acne. Alternately, you can mince garlic into a paste and apply it directly to your pimples. Allow the paste to set for 15-20 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.

Try using fresh papaya juice. Papayas are full of antioxidants and vitamin A, which help to smooth and soften your skin while reducing inflammation. Grab a fresh papaya and mash it to create a pulpy juice. Spread this onto your skin and allow it to dry before rinsing off with cool water.

Try a nutmeg scrub. Nutmeg is a gentle exfoliant that will help to slough off the dead skin that builds up on your face, causing acne. Mix a teaspoon of nutmeg with 1-2 tablespoons of regular milk. Rub the scrub onto your face for a minute, and then rinse off with warm water.
