DIY Face Masks for Acne Prone Skin!

Acne is the most common problem among all the ladies. Not all of us have the money to get it treated with high-end products, surgeries and medication. There are a lot of factors that cause pimples and clogged pores are one of them. Dirt, nakeupr residue and told altogether clog out pores and cause the skin to break out. Face masks are a great way to keep the oil at bay while cleaning the pores deeply. It is not necessary to buy super expensive masks all of the time. Some ingredients in your kitchen can even get the job done well.

Here are some of the easy-peasy yet effective DIY recipes for face masks for your acne prone skin. Try them out and thank me later!


Eggs are easily available at home and they're super effective for drawing out the dirt and oil as the egg white is very thin in consistency and it goes deep into the skin. Take two eggs and separate the egg whites from the yolks. Apply a very thin layer of egg white to the face and stick the tissue paper over it. Apply another layer and stick more tissues. Doing so will build a hard cover. Leave it to dry and then gently peel it off. You will see how the tissue will absorb all the dirt and leave your face clean.


Honey has the incredible anti-inflammatory properties that soothe the skin down while turmeric is great for killing the bacteria prevailing in the pores. Together, they make an incredible mask for acne prone skin. Plus, they are readily available in the kitchen as well. All you need to do is take two spoons of honey and add half spoon turmeric in it. Mix them well together, Apply the mixture evenly on the entire face and leave it for about 15 minutes. Wash it off and apply a toner to remove the smell and color and lock the benefits of the mask in to the skin.


Oranges are as good to the skin as they are to the taste buds. Orange peel has got a lot of vitamin C and astringent properties that can help you get rid of the acne and the scars altogether. Applying this mask twice a week can actually work wonders for your skin and even out your skin tone as well. All you need to do is take one orange peel and grind it well with milk and honey. Apply the paste on your skin evenly and leave it to dry for about 20 minutes. Scrub it off and then apply tad bit of non-greasy moisturizer.

Using one of these masks twice a week will eventually help you get rid of your acne problem. The process might be a little slow but it is definitely worth it.
