Skins that suffer acne Require specific care to remove excess sebum and dead skin cells and toxins, while requiring products that purify and disinfect.

In this article we share 4 fantastic face masks Which you can prepare at home in a simple way and with totally natural ingredients. Forget chemicals, which are too aggressive in the long run, and discover the great benefits of these ingredients.

How do they work?

Natural face masks to combat acne Must be applied once a week . If we have very fat skin we can apply even twice.

  • We will wash the face thoroughly and perform a gentle exfoliation with a little salt or sugar, massaging our skin in circles. We will insist on the most fatty areas, but we will avoid scratching the skin where there is acne.
  • We will rinse the skin again with water and do it well.
  • Apply the mask avoiding the eye contour and let it act for 20 minutes.
  • Next, we will wash and dry the face, and immediately apply a moisturizing lotion that is not fat. We can use, for example, jojoba oil or coconut oil which, although they have an oily texture, are the least fatty we can find.
  • If our skin is excessively fat we will only apply a little natural aloe vera.

Aloe vera and lemon

He aloe vera Is a plant well known for its Moisturizing and healing properties . They usually sell their gel in pharmacies and herbalists, but we recommend having the plant at home, and so we can get it directly by cutting one of its leaves when we need it.

We must peel the penca and extract the gelatinous mass, which we will wash well to clean other irritants between the penca and the gel.

For this mask too We will use lemon, as it has great cleansing, purifying and eliminating excess fat .

How do we prepare it?

  • We will mix the natural aloe vera gel with lemon juice. We can also use skin grating if the lemon is organic.
  • Shake the ingredients well, adding more lemon juice or more aloe until you get the proper consistency for the mask.
