5 Organic Masks For Acne Prone Skin | Dry – Normal

5 Organic Masks For Acne Prone Skin

Our skin type naturally changes as we age; even acne, blemish-prone skin can creep up on us throughout adulthood and not just throughout puberty. Until recently, I was a long time sufferer of cystic, hormonal adult acne, so for anyone going through this, I feel your pain.

After years of trial and error with skin care products, I finally found what helped my skin to look and feel its best and so, decided to create a blog series on everything from skin care to healthy ingredients.

Whether your skin issues appear on your face or another part of the body, these homemade masks are safe and if used consistently, create the long-term changes we want to see.

These masks specifically, are homemade, which means most of the ingredients we already own, gaining the added bonus of saving money whilst restoring our beautiful skin.

Before we begin, I have to mention that every skin type is different, so too is everyone on the planet and we react differently to specific products and ingredients, therefore, please test any mask both homemade and store bought on your elbow, at least 24 hours before putting any of these masks on your pretty face and body.

You can also see your health care professional for any further advice before starting.

Here a few tips before trying these masks:

  1. Always have clean skin in the area you are going to place the mask.
  2. For best results, have a slightly damp face or skin area before applying the mask.
  3. Never leave any Turmeric based masks on any area of your body for more than 10 minutes as it will leave a yellow stain for at least 24 hours and please wear old clothes or have access to an old clean towel during and after using any Turmeric based ingredients as it will stain all materials.

Let’s get to the good stuff, shall we? I have organised them into categories along with what can be made from home and what can be bought online that remain 100% natural and effective.

1 potato

Half a Lemon

Blender or Grater

How To Make:

Blend or finely grate the potato and place into your bowl, however, if you find this hard to keep on your skin, add a quarter cup of water and blend the potato shavings and water together.

Another option is to take the blended potato and place it into a muslin cloth or through a sieve in order to get the potato juice out. Remember both the skin and the potato juice are important for this mask and your skin.

Place the blended potato and or water into a bowl and add the juice of half a lemon, it is even better if you have the pulp in there too, then mix.

Place a towel at head level on the sofa or bed, lay down and apply the mask in chunks all over your face, can be applied to your decolletage too, and the towel is great just in case anything falls off.

This has worked wonders for my skin and is even great to drink so no waste!

Peel off the banana skin and chop into pieces as shown in the picture. Place the slices into a bowl and with your fork, mash the banana together until they form a lumpy puree. Next, add 1/4 cup of raw honey; manuka honey is, of course, the best, however, whichever brand you use, make sure it is 100% organic. Proceed to mix the banana puree and the honey together. Add a 1/4 cup of yoghurt to the bowl and mix it in with the bananas and honey.

Take your makeup brush, preferably a foundation brush, or you can use your fingers, and begin applying the mixture directly onto your face, staying clear of your eye area. Leave it on for 20 minutes or longer and then gently wash your face using warm water and a muslin cloth/soft towel.

I really enjoy doing a different mask once a week, depending on my skin texture, look and feel and I hope you enjoy using them too!
