7 DIY Face Masks For Acne

1. Lemon, Honey and Sugar Mask

The key ingredient in this mask is a lemon. Lemon has great astringent properties which make your skin less oily and the honey helps not let it get too dry.
 
This mask doubles as a scrub as well because of the abrasive effect added by the sugar which makes it great for exfoliating the skin as well.
 
Simply mix a tablespoon of lemon juice and a tablespoon of honey with about three tablespoons of brown sugar till it forms a thick paste. Rub the paste on your face and let it dry. Repeat layers if you desire and wash it off once all the layers have dried off.
 
You could mix a teaspoon of green tea in this mask for an anti-aging effect. This is because green tea is full of anti-oxidants and also boasts of anti-inflammatory properties.

2. Aloe Vera Mask

Aloe Vera has soothing properties and it is an effective anti-inflammatory agent as well. This is why it works so well in removing acne from our otherwise smooth skin.
 
Simply mix a tablespoon of Aloe Vera with a tablespoon of honey and three tablespoons of brown sugar. Apply the paste on your face and wait for it to dry. Repeat layers if desired and wash it off gently.

3. Turmeric Mask

Due to Turmeric's anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it is regarded as a miracle herb to cure your skin of all ailments.
 
Just mix a tablespoon of ground turmeric powder with a tablespoon of Greek yogurt and a tablespoon of honey. Apply the mixture on your face, wait for it to dry and remove it gently with warm water.
