DIY Face Mask for Acne 

Hello beauties! Recently, I’ve been getting a lot of breakouts on my face, so I began looking online to find a face mask that prevents and treats acne/blemishes and came across a Apple Cider Vinegar mask on top10homeremedies.com I put the link to this specific face mask if you want to go look at it in the picture below. They have many more face masks so you should definitely check it out! I just thought I’d share this mask with you because it worked very well for me.

For this face mask you need:

– 1 tablespoon Pure Apple Cider Vinegar

– 2 tablespoon Cooled Green Tea 

– 1 tablespoon Honey

– 5 teaspoons  Sugar 

Bowl and  a Spoon (obviously)

You simply mix these all together, in the order they are listed, and you can use a cotton pad to apply. I just folded a piece of paper towel, and it worked just fine.

This is what the mask looked like for me when I mixed in the ingredients.

You can add more sugar to get a thicker consistency. When applying the mask, rub your skin in circular motions to exfoliate. Let it sit for 8-10 minutes and then just wash it off.

I did my research and found out the benefits of each ingredient in this face mask so keep reading to see what these natural ingredients can do for your skin.

Benefits of this face mask: 

Apple Cider Vinegar:

It unclogs your pores and allows your skin to breathe. It also balances the pH levels in your skin which balances the production of sebum, which prevents your skin from getting too oily. Because of it’s anti-fungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties, apple cider vinegar helps prevent acne and any skin infections.

Green tea:

It reduces inflammation of acne and has anti-bacterial properties that prevent and fight against acne. It is also full of great anti-oxidants that your skin will thank you for.

Honey:

It contains anti-microbial properties, so it helps cleanse your pores and does not let microbes grow. The anti-oxidants in the honey help keep your skin youthful. Honey also helps keep your skin soft, smooth and gives it a healthy glow. The stickiness of the honey helps take unwanted dirt, microbes, and dead skin which helps prevent skin infections and unclogs your pores.

Sugar:

The sugar helps exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin and excess sebum, leaving you with a smooth and glowing complexion.

Let me know in the comments if you try this mask out! 🙂


Stay fab,
