Top 3 DIY Homemade Acne Face Masks

Prev1 of 3Next

Homemade acne face masks are excellent natural remedies for getting rid of acne breakouts and eliminating acne scars. These recipes include a variety of ingredients that help nourish your skin and eliminate acne-related problems.

Honey, which is used in all the three masks we are preparing today, hydrates your skin, keeps it soft by preserving moisture, and promotes skin cell renewal.

It is highly beneficial for acne-prone skin because of its antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Its anti-inflammatory nature also helps reduce redness and inflammation caused by acne and pimples. It is best to use raw, organic honey rather than processed honey as the latter may irritate your skin.

Ingredients such as cinnamon, apple cider vinegar, green tea, turmeric, and milk are also useful in reducing acne and acne scars.

  • Like honey, cinnamon has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • The alpha hydroxyl acids in apple cider vinegar help unclog skin pores and dissolve dead skin cells. Moreover, apple cider vinegar treats blemishes, restores the natural pH of your skin, and minimizes the appearance of pores.
  • Green tea is packed with antioxidants that fight harmful free radicals and help you maintain bright, flawless, and younger-looking skin. It too has anti-inflammatory benefits.
  • Turmeric is good for treating skin problems, owing to its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It also helps fade blemishes and acne scars.
  • Raw milk contains lactic acid that works as a gentle exfoliant and delivers anti-aging benefits.

Here are recipes for the top three face masks for acne. Make sure you remove all makeup and wash your face thoroughly before applying these natural face packs. Cleansing your face helps unclog pores and allows the masks to penetrate deep into your skin.

The sugar in this recipe works as a natural exfoliant helpful in breaking up scar tissue and unclogging skin pores. Leave the mask on for about 10 minutes and then rinse it off with water. Use this beauty mask about once or twice a week.

  5. i’m gonna try the 1st..hope it works!

  6. going to try it!

  7. How long does it usually take to clear up the acne?

  8. This works! I have longed for glowing, beautiful skin since I was 12 and all hell broke loose with acne. It has been up and down with stress, breakouts, hormones, etc.

    Who knew lemons would be my best friend. I use these masks, fresh lemon (not concentrate is a must), and greek yogurt on my face and rince off. I have not used any store bought cleansers not even Dove soap. My skin is getting better and better. My face, back, chest, I hope to be totally clear from old scars by Valentines day.

    For the second one how long do i leave the toner (lemon juice) on my face before i can rinse it off. I dont want to walk around smelling like lemon juice.

    • Leave the fresh lemon juice on for ten minutes then rinse off with lukewarm water. Becareful with the sun and citrus juice because it can easily burn your skin.

  10. How long does the turmeric mask stay on? Rinse off with lukewarm water? There are no instructions for leaving it on or rinsing it off…please advise!

  11. iam also trying the frst one..

  12. there is a tingling and mild burning sensation when u apply this cinnamon and honey mask
    Is that normal..pls tell

    • yes the tingling is normal that is the bacteria getting eaten by the honey and cinnamon

    • I personally can’t use cinnamon because my face turns bright red and stings – this post should have come with a warning. The burning sensation means you’re having a reaction – definitely not normal. You can try nutmeg instead.

  13. im trying the first 1

  14. I’m going to try honey and cinnamon one let u know how it works! I find warming the honey its easier putting on

  15. I have a really bad face and its worse when my periods are soon. Its all mixed with pimples and acne. Its really embarrassing, hope ths works for me. Will try the second one

  16. The turmeric one is awesome. I have seen a noticeable difference striaght away. Thanks, huge thumbs up.

  19. I did the second one…it works!

  20. I’d love to hear back from any of the commenters who said they were going to give any of these masks a try. Did they work?

  21. Hello I see a lot of people saying they are gonna try the first one …dose it really work

  22. Whenever I use turmeric, my skin turns yellow and then it is difficult to remove the colour and i have to use soap and rub my skin hard which fails the purpose and i get dry skin instead. Can you suggest any methods to get rid of the yellow colour or to prevent the skin from turning yellow?

    • My impression was that you rub the milk afterwards all over to wipe off the yellow. I haven’t tried this but that was what I thought it said.
