This post is the second installment in the Au Naturel skin care series; today, I will be sharing my recipe for an acne fighting mask. This mask can be used several times a week and it is moisturizing as well so, it is all skin type can use it. Of course if you are allergic to any of the ingredients feel free to not do this mask or remove that ingredient. With all of that said let's jump into it!
Why is this mask considered acne fighting?
This mask is considered acne fighting due three ingredients. Tea tree oil, raw honey, and apple cider vinegar Tea Tree Oil- Kills bacteria and stimulates the skin.
Apple Cider Vinegar- Dissolves dead skin cells, removes impurities, lightens acne scars, kills bacteria, balances pH of the skin.
Raw Honey- Kills bacteria, lightens and brightens the skin, and moisturizes.
What other ingredients are in this mask? And what do those ingredients do?
Coconut water and plain Greek yogurt are also in this mask. Coconut water hydrates and plumps the skin. Greek Yogurt hydrates and gently exfoliates the skin.
What skin type will benefit from this mask?
Anyone who is experiencing acne for any given reason will enjoy this mask.
How do you store this mask?
Due to the coconut water and Greek yogurt, the mask must be store in the refrigerator. Also, the mask can only be stored for up to 10 days.
What is the measurements for this ingredients?
1/4 cup coconut water
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
4 tbs. raw honey
3 tbs. apple cider vinegar
6-10 drops of tea tree oil
Only use this product on clean, exfoliated skin. You may use this product up to 3 times a week. Remember to tone your skin after using this product. Remember to also moisturize after using this mask.
What can people except after using this product?
The first day you skin will feel clean, smooth, and soft. After a week or two you will notice less acne, less dryness, and fading dark scars and spots. People will continue to experience soft, smooth skin. After 1 to 3 months you will notice much less acne if any acne at all. You will also notice diminished or vanished spots or scars. (Depending on how recent the scars and spots are.) The skin will appear more luminous and brighter as well. You will continue to experience soft, smooth skin.
