1. Cinnamon-Honey Mask

Honey Cinnamon MaskBoth honey and cinnamon both make a perfect combo f0r acne and acne scars. Cinnamon has antimicrobial properties, so it can help prevent bacteria from fussing around on your skin. And honey is a natural antibiotic, which helps wipe the little buggers out.

You will need…
– Honey – 2 tablespoons
– Cinnamon – 1 teaspoon
– Some paper towels

Directions
Rinse your face with water and pat dry. Mix 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon together until they are thoroughly blended and have formed a sort of paste. Apply the mask to your face (or spot) and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off completely. Try not to rub your skin as your acne are already sore and have just gone through a treatment. Pat your face dry. This is a sticky mixture, so make sure you have some paper towels at on hand.

 

2. Egg Whites

Egg white for AcneOne of the most easy and affordable ways to help reduce acne and fade scars left by unfortunate blemishes. Egg whites are full of proteins and vitamins that both combat acne, and help to rebuild your skin cells. They also soak up excess oil, which means excess sebum, which means less stuff for bacteria to feed on. Also apply some oil-free moisturizer, as they can dry your skin out a bit.

You will need…
– 3 Egg whites, separated from yolks
– Bowl
– Washcloth

Directions
Rinse your face with water and pat dry. Separate the whites from the yolks. Whisk the whites until they’re frothy, and set them aside for a few minutes. Cover your face with the mixture (applying with fingertips is easy) focusing on problem spots. 3 to 4 layers are enough. Do make sure to wait the first has dried before applying more. Allow the mask to sit and dry for about 20 minutes before rinsing off completely with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft washcloth. Apply suitable moisturizer for your skin afterwards.

 

3. Banana Peel

So rubbing a banana peel on your face can reduce the redness, and free you from discomfort of acne.

You will need…
– 1 Banana peel (of course, as you can’t start the process without it ;))

Directions
Peel your banana and eat it (eating it has other health benefits). Take the peel, and rub in a circular motion all over your face especially the acne part. When you have covered all your face, let it sit for at least 30 minutes before rinsing it off. Pat dry with a soft towel afterwards.
