Home Made Face Masks for Acne Prone Skin
Face masks are excellent for deep cleansing and nourishing the skin. Some face masks are used as exfoliating agents. Clay works as a good dirt and sebum extractor on the skin. It pulls and logged oil and dirt.
Some very effective face masks, which work well on problematic skins prone to acne are suggested below. These are natural products that can be found at home. So, they are cost effective besides being skin friendly and without side effects.
1. Add one teaspoon of lemon juice to stiffly beaten egg white and yoghurt. Apply thickly on the face and neck. Leave it on for 20 minutes and wipe off using wet cotton. Before applying the mask, wipe face with hot water.
2. Oatmeal and cucumber juice, mixed in equal proportions make a very good cleansing mask for oily skin. Oatmeal extracts and absorbs excess oil while cucumber juice cools the skin and reduces the irritation caused by acne.
