In this blog post I want to share which natural face masks I use to remove blemishes from my skin. A blemish forms on the skin as a result of skin damage, in my case the skin damage is caused by spots. Acne/spots can leave blemishes and sometimes dents on the skin that can take many months to heal.
I’m not really a fan of using medication and creams to get rid of blemishes- I prefer using natural means and so turned to face masks. (However, I am thinking of trying Neutrogenas acne range out). The masks I use really helped with wiping blemishes out that would otherwise take 2 months to disappear, for instance, these marks on my cheek disappeared within 3 weeks!!!
Masks I Use:
Avocado’s are enriched with vitamins, antioxidants and healthy fatty acids which help brighten, even the skin tone and also make the skin firm.
For this mask, I use a 1/2 an Avocado and mash it into a fine pulp, I then apply this onto my skin and leave it to fully dry for about 30 minutes.
This is one of my go to masks, due to the immediate results, I like to use this before going out with friends.
2. Argan oil
Phoenicians have recorded the use of Argan oil as early as 1550 B.C. by the Berber women of southern Morocco as it is enriched with vitamin E and skin healing agents. Almost 4,000 years later the Berber women are still renowned for their beautiful skin and Argan oil is their secret!!
I use Argan oil by massaging 4 drops of it onto my face daily, it is a dry oil so it does not feel greasy or leave a tacky layer on the skin.
The lactic acid in yoghurt helps dissolve dead skin and cleans the pores out, thereby lightening the blemishes.
I used to use this on a daily basis and have now reduced this to 3 times a week, once applied, I leave this mask on my skin for 20 minutes or until it has fully dried.
