DIY: Acne fighting mask

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I posted a recipe for a DIY acne fighting gel and today I want to share another acne fighting beauty recipe with you.  For this DIY you will need two key ingredients; a lemon and a tomato.  


Ingredients:
  • 1 ripe tomato
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp oatmeal (optional)

Lemons are full of AHA’s and BHA’s which remove dead skin cells, fight acne, minimize pores and brighten skin.  Back in November of 2011, I posted an article titled: Lemons for clear skin; in which I wrote about the countless benefits of lemons.  Make sure you read it for more information.  
Tomatoes have cooling and astringent properties.  They’re also rich in antioxidants like vitamin C and vitamin A.  Their acidity helps tame excessive oil production too.
Oatmeal helps reduce itching and inflammation and can be used to calm acne, eczema and heal psoriasis.
Method:
  1. Mash the peeled tomato in a bowl. 
  2. Add the lemon juice (and oatmeal) and mix everything together. 
  3. Apply to clean face and leave on for 15-20 minutes. 
  4. Rinse and follow with your favourite toner and moisturiser.

Tip: If you have dry skin add half a teaspoon of coconut oil to this mask.
