Prepare Your Own Anti-Acne Face Mask at Home

Natural remedies can soothe and reduce the inflammation caused by acne, as well as fight bacteria and infections. The anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties found in certain ingredients will help clear your complexion and prevent the apparition of excess sebum. By clogging up the pores, sebum allows bacteria to develop, and this can lead to inflamed pores, pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads.


Here are a few masks you can make with natural ingredients that will fight the infection and restore a clean complexion.

Honey mask

The combination of honey, tea tree oil, and jojoba oil will cleanse the tissue and reduce the inflammatory process produced by bacteria.

Recipe: Combine 1 tablespoon of honey with one tablespoon of jojoba oil in a glass container. Add 3 drops of tea tree oil to the mix and stir all the ingredients.

Use: Apply the mask on your face and wait 20 minutes, then rinse with water.

Baking soda mask

This ingredient is also used for cooking and will unclog the pores and accelerate the healing process besides minimizing the sebum level.

Recipe: Incorporate 2 tablespoons of baking soda in 2 tablespoons of water and add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.

Use: Apply the paste on the acne-affected areas and leave it for up to 15 minutes before rinsing.

Aloe Vera mask

Mix tea tree oil with aloe vera to enhance the oil’s healing and antibacterial properties. Besides, aloe vera will treat the scars caused by acne, as well as reduce the redness.

Recipe: Make a combo of 1 tablespoon of aloe vera and 6-8 drops of tea tree oil.

Use: Apply the mix on the pimples and leave it for half an hour, then rinse.

Oatmeal mask

Oatmeal and baking soda will immediately improve the complexion by providing a smoother skin texture and helping you treat the infection.

Recipe: Combine 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 2 tablespoons of ground oatmeal and some water. Stir the ingredients until you have a thick paste.

Use: Massage the paste on the affected areas and wait for it to dry, then remove it with water.

Cinnamon mask

The blend of honey and cinnamon does not only smell good but it also acts as a great antibacterial solution and rapidly reduces the inflamed tissue.

Recipe: Add 2 tablespoons of honey to 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and stir until you have a soft paste.

Use: Apply the mix on the affected areas and leave it for up to 20 minutes before rinsing.

Apple cider vinegar mask

Green tea, honey, sugar and unprocessed apple cider vinegar will clear your skin by killing the bacteria and exfoliating dead skin cells.

Recipe: In a glass bowl, mix well 1 teaspoon of raw apple cider vinegar, 5 teaspoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of green tea and 1 teaspoon of honey.

Use: Massage the scrub using circular motions and then wait 10 minutes before rinsing.

These natural remedies may not perfectly clear your complexion in just one day, but will deliver better results and with fewer side effects than chemical products. Their effectiveness is backed up by science and the healing and cleansing properties are well known and tested.
