How to Make Homemade Pimple Face Masks
It isn't necessary to spend big money on complicated facial masks to soothe pimples, as skin-nourishing ingredients are as close as your kitchen. Tomato is ideal for acne, as the astringent qualities of the tomato will soothe the skin. The vitamin C in apples, tomato and lemon juice promotes healthy skin, banishes excess oil and restores the skin's natural pH balance. Strawberries help heal and tone acne-prone skin, leaving the skin soft and supple. Egg whites are rich in protein, and can help to heal painful outbreaks.
Wash one apple. Grate the apple into a mixing bowl.
Warm 5 tbsp. honey in a microwave oven for five to eight seconds. Stir the warm honey into the grated apple.
Wash your face, and then pat your skin dry with a soft towel. Spread the apple mixture onto your face. Leave the mixture on your skin for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
Place five ripe strawberries in a cup. Mash the strawberries with a fork.
Stir in 2 tsp. warm honey, one egg white and 1 tsp. lemon juice. Blend the ingredients into a paste.
Wash your face with warm water, and the allow your skin to dry slightly. Spread the strawberry mixture onto your damp skin.
Allow the strawberry facial to remain on your face for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
