Acne is the most common problem among all ladies out there. Dealing with acne can be tough but waiting for the acne scars to vanish often becomes frustrating. They almost take a lifetime to completely disappear if not catered to. Therefore, do not just wait for them to magically disappear. Do not just keep buying concealers to hide them wherever you go. For a temporary solution, it sounds cool. But it will only make you feel ashamed of your own skin in the long run. You will eventually stop embracing your skin completely. You wouldn’t want that to happen, now would you?
Here are a few DIY masks that are easy on your pocket and your time too. These masks have been used and carried forward for ages for their effective results and zero side-effects.
1. Aloe And Lemon Mask:
Aloe vera is known for its infinite benefits for skin. It consists of anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that help reduce the redness and swelling of the scars and help in the development of new skin cells. It also has the ability to remove blackheads and whiteheads. Lemon consists of bleaching properties that are best for fading blemishes and making the skin clear and even-toned. It can be used as a toner itself.
Take pure aloe vera gel (from a plant in your garden) and half cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Blend them for 30 seconds and apply the mask on your clean face. Let the mask dry and then wash it off. Apply a little moisturizer in the end to prevent dry patches. Use this mask twice every week for best results.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar And Honey Mask:
It is the most famous mask for removing can scars. You will need apple cider vinegar, honey, green tea and brown sugar for making this mask. The alpha hydroxyl acids present in the vinegar unclog the skin pores and help in removing the bacteria and dirt. It also helps to reduce the sebum that causes acne. Honey consists of antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties which make honey become a brilliant remedy for acne scars as well. Moreover, antioxidants in green tea can assist you to fight acne. Lastly, sugar consists of glycolic acid that helps in revamping the skin entirely.
Take a bowl and add one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, one tablespoon green tea, three to four teaspoons sugar and 1 tablespoon honey. Mix all the ingredients vigorously. Apply this mask and massage it gently on your skin. Take it off using rose water after 10 to 15 minutes.
3. Egg Mask:
This is the easiest remedy of all times. Egg whites consist of vitamins and protein that help in revamping the skin completely. It helps to remove acne and makes the skin firm and youthful.
Separate two egg whites from yolk. Add them to a blender and blend the eggs until it becomes frothy. Take it out and apply a double coat of it on the face. Let the mask get completely dried up. Wash your face and apply some face cream or moisturizer to erase the smell.
4. Orange Mask:
Oranges appeal the taste buds as well as the skin. Orange peel can be used as a scrub and mask both. The astringent properties and vitamin C present in it help revamp the skin completely and bring out the natural glow.
Take one to two orange peels and half cup of milk. Grind the milk and orange peels together. Apply the mixture on the face and scrub it off gently after 15 minutes. Rinse your face and apply some moisturizer in the end.
