3 Natural Anti-Acne Face Masks You Could Make Right Now

Regular anti-acne face masks are a great addition to any skin care routine.

Even if your acne isn’t active, these face masks help cleanse the excess oils, dead skin and bacteria that cause acne, which makes them ideal for prevention and general skin health.

These are 3 recipes, well known for their anti-acne properties. They’re all made from simple everyday ingredients that you’re likely to already have in your kitchen.

Got to love it when life’s this simple!


Note: Some of these face masks contain acidic ingredients such as lemon and apple cider vinegar. We recommend a small test patch before applying these masks to your entire face, as they may cause a slight sting for 2-3 seconds on active acne or broken skin. If pain is persistent, remove the mask and apply ManukaRx Ointment which will help soothe and protect the area.
