Best Face Mask for Acne and Blackheads
I have used several different good face masks for blackheads and acne and have found that most of them didn’t work that well, but there are a few that did help clear up my skin. I do believe that everyone’s skin reacts differently to face masks so what worked for me, may not necessarily work for you.
As a teen I suffered from some bad acne breakouts and that was when I first started experimenting with making a homemade face mask for acne. As I got older, the breakouts started to go away but even though I am not a teen anymore, I still get the occasional pimple here and there and that is when I resort to my trusty old acne face mask that I can make at home with rather cheap ingredients.
How to Make the Best Face Mask for Acne and Blackheads
Just like any type of masks for acne, it is a good idea to test a small spot on your face first before you apply it all over your face.
One of the Best Home Face Masks for Acne with Aspirin
*Do not try this homemade acne face mask if you are allergic to aspirin!
- 6 aspirin tablets
- Toner (chilled)
- Regular Moisturizer
1. Wash your face with your normal cleanser or soap. Don’t use one that is geared towards acne as that will be way too harsh on your skin if you use this homemade acne face mask afterwards.
2. Crush the aspirin tablets with a spoon into a bowl. Add in a few drops of water until you get a thick paste. If you add too much water you can add in another aspirin or wait a few minutes until some of the water gets more absorbed.
3. Cover your face with a washcloth that is damp with warm water. This helps to open up your pores so that the acne face mask can be absorbed better. Once the washcloth starts getting cold, take it off.
4. Use your fingertips (make sure they are clean) to apply the aspirin face mask all over your face or in specific areas where you have an acne breakout. Be sure you don’t get the mask into your eyes as it will burn bad.
5. Allow the homemade face mask to completely dry on your face so that it starts to crumble off.
6. Use a washcloth that is soaked in warm water to rub off the aspirin face mask. Try not to scrub too hard as you may irritate your skin.
7. If you have a toner, chill it for an hour or so in the refrigerator before hand and then apply it to your face now.
8. Use your regular moisturizer to hydrate your skin after applying this homemade acne face mask.
*Only use this one of the best diy face mask for acne once a week as it may dry out your skin too much if you use it any more than that.
