    Exclamation All Natural Acne Treatments

    Advertisements
    So I stumbled upon this site
    http://www.mybeautyrecipes.com/homemade_acne_masks.html

    Baking Soda Mask to Fight Acne
    This is so easy to make and can work wonders if your skin likes it. (Remember, not every cause of acne is the same, so you need to try different remedies and masks until you find the ones that work for you.)
    All you need are two ingredients. Baking Soda (NOT baking powder) and water.
    Mix a little together in your hands after washing your face with a mild cleanser and apply gently to your skin. Once you've coated your face with the baking soda and water mix, let it sit while you do other things around the house, or relax and read a book.
    Rinse the baking soda film off your face and feel how soft and clear it feels. If your skin enjoys this recipe, and your acne improves, then you may try it several times a week to help clear your acne.
    Egg White Mask
    This is simple and quite frugal. There have been many instances of people reporting excellent results from trying it.

    What is it? Egg white. Simple egg white.

    All you need to do is separate the yolk from the egg whites. Then whip the egg whites until it is nice and frothy. Apply it to your clean face (using clean hands). Leave on for approximately 20 minutes and wash off with warm water.

    The result? Tightening of the skin, clearing of red spots.

    Possible side effects? If you’re allergic to eggs, of course, avoid this one.

    Egg Yolk Mask
    Egg Yolks contain Vitamin A which is good for scarring. To attempt this method of acne treatment, whip up an egg yolk, apply it to your skin for 20 minutes. Wash off.

    Acne Tonic with Basil
    2 to 3 teaspoons dried basil leaves
    1 C. boiling water
    Steep basil leaves in water for 10 to 20 minutes. Cool, then apply to face with a white cotton ball.
    Blackhead Remover Mask
    1/2 cup fuller's earth
    1 tsp. tincture of benzoin
    distilled witch hazel
    Combine all ingredients and stir thoroughly. Apply the mask to your skin. Let mask dry and harden - about 30-40 minutes. Soak a small hand towel in warm water and lay it across your face.
    When the mask starts to soften up, gently rub it with the towel in a circular motion. Rinse with plenty of warm water.
    Sea Salt or Table Salt Mask
    Swim in the ocean (or buy sea salt and make a mask). Or just gently wash with salt & water mixed.

    Oatmeal Mask
    Another kitchen remedy. Blend some oatmeal with water and gently spread it onto your skin. Leave it until it dries (10-15 minutes). This mask is gentle and safe.

    We hope these acne masks will help clear your skin. Whether you have regular acne or acne rosacea, these homemade acne masks can help your skin look and feel better.

    I've done the egg yolk one and it does work.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.
