Acne is a troublesome skin condition that is embarrassing. However, there is a natural and effective way to treat and clear up this troublesome skin condition and that is by making my homemade garlic and honey facial mask. The garlic and honey contains antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that get to root of the acne problem by killing the germs, cleansing the pores and reducing the swelling and redness.
The organic ingredients needed to make the homemade garlic and honey facial mask are three cloves of garlic, 3 tablespoons of honey, and 2 tablespoons of English clay powder, 10 drops of tea tree oil and 1 teaspoon of vitamin E oil. These ingredients will help cleanse deep down in the pores and draw out blackheads, dirt, oil, and bacteria and dead skin cells that clog the pores and cause acne to begin with. These ingredients are easily found in any local grocery store and pharmaceutical store.
The best way to make this facial mask is by taking the garlic, honey, English clay powder, tea tree oil and vitamin E oil, and placing them into a small puree machine and pureeing them together until you get a smooth slightly thick dark colored facial mask. If you find the mask is too thick, add another ½ teaspoon of vitamin E oil and if the mask is too thin add more clay powder. You want the facial mask to be thick enough that it stays on your face without dripping everywhere.
Now the first thing you should do before applying the garlic and honey facial mask is wash your face really well with a daily facial cleanser. Then you can take a small handful of the facial mask with your fingers and apply a nice thick layer to your face as evenly as possible. Next, allow the facial mask to stay on your skin for about 15 to 30 minutes. The mask might sting slightly, but this is only because it is treating your acne. However, the mask should feel soothing also. While the mask is on your face it will begin to dry up and this is fine because it is helping draw out the impurities in the skin. Once the time is up, wash the mask off the face using warm water and a cotton washcloth using upward motions. This helps exfoliate skin and pull any black heads up out of the skin gently. After, splash your face with cool water to seal and shrink the pores. You should use this facial mask every day until your acne is gone and than every other day once the acne is gone to prevent further outbreaks.
You will notice after using this homemade garlic and honey facial mask how smooth, soft, glowing and clear your skin is. This facial mask for acne usually works much better than any drug store or name brand acne treatment. Those of you who are allergic to any of the ingredients in this facial mask should not use it. Otherwise, those of you who do try it I hope it helps clear up your skin so it can be radiantly beautiful again.
