Choose from the 4 acne face masks bellow:

Carrot Mask

This mask for acne can be used with any skin type. Made with carrots, the mask is full of antioxidants and vitamin C.

Grind 500grams of carrot into a thick paste and add 5 grams of flour into the paste. Mix well but make sure the paste is not too sticky. If it is then do not add the flour.

To use, wash your face with lukewarm water, pat dry, and apply the mask. Keep for 10 minutes and wash it off. Use the mask daily for best results. As an alternative, you can also use fresh carrot juice to wash face.

Basil Tonic

This mask for acne has the nutrition of basil leaves. To make the tonic, boil water and steep 2-3 teaspoon of dried basil leaves for a maximum of 20 minutes. After the water is cool enough, strain the leaves and store the tonic in a clean air-tight containers.

To use the tonic, clean your face first with lukewarm water. Pour little tonic in a bowl. Use white cotton ball to soak in the tonic and apply on the acne areas. Dab the tonic repeatedly. Don’t wash off your face; let the tonic seep inside the skin.

Egg Yolk Mask

Note that this mask for acne is only for those who are not allergic to eggs. Eggs are a rich source of protein and vitamin A. The egg yolk not only helps reduce acne but also acne scarring.

What you do is separate the egg yolk from the egg white. Whip the egg yolk until it is frothy. Clean your face with lukewarm water and pat dry. Use your hands to apply the whipped egg yolk.
