Breakouts are so unwelcome, yet they pop up unannounced and full fledged during the summer months, irrespective of your skin type. Your daily skincare routine can only do as much as try to prevent pimples at max, but when these lesions show up all of a sudden, you will need to take additional measures to make them go away. Yes, following a CTM routine is pivotal, but adding a skincare mask to the mix will make that acne vanish like a magic trick.
While there are many amazing mask options available in the market, try a homemade skincare mask if you want to get serious about banishing those pimples quickly. When going the DIY way, you can even tweak your mask recipes to do exactly what you need and more. Here are some tried and tested DIY face packs to keep your skin clear and smooth this season.
The best skincare ingredient to detoxify skin and soothe acne, while controlling excess sebum and delivering essential minerals is bentonite clay. It has a calming effect on skin and draws out deep rooted impurities without much hassle. A face pack with bentonite clay will easily clear up your skin and it is suitable for all skin types.
Aloe vera gel will forever be a skincare favourite for acne prone skin. It deeply hydrates and softens skin without making skin feel greasy and it has a super soothing action on skin inflammation and pimples. Acne will reduce and feel less irritating once this mask is applied.
Fuller’s earth is a great choice to treat acne and minimise its size to the max. The trick is in this simple recipe. This pack will help exfoliate and unclog pores so that existing pimples can calm down and heal properly. This recipe does contain a small pinch of baking soda as that helps to exfoliate and control excess oil while minimising the size of the pimple. This ingredient can be skipped if you have dry skin but it is ideal for oily skin types.
If you have normal to dry or combination skin, this anti acne face pack is for you. It gently unclogs pores and moisturises skin so that your skin does not get excessively dry and more inflamed.
