Method 1: with Aspirin

Hi, my name is Kara and you are watching VisiHow. Today, I am going to show you how to make an inexpensive facial mask for oily skin. This mask will also help to get rid of pimples and inflammation.

Steps

  1. 1
    Gather the needed materials.
    To create this anti-acne facial mask for oily skin we need four tablets of aspirin, a piece of lemon, olive oil, a deep plate, and two spoons: a tablespoon and a teaspoon.

  2. 2
    Crush the aspirin.
    On the plate, place the four tablets of aspirin; you can use more if needed. This is something you can buy at the pharmacy and you do not need a prescription for it and trust me this mask is extremely effective. Hold on piece of aspirin with the tablespoon and smash it with the teaspoon. Just put your thumb onto the teaspoon and press down. You want to make sure that there are no hard clumps left. This mask really helps if you have large pimples or clogged pores. It is an amazing tool that you can use at home and it is very inexpensive. I have been using it for several weeks. I apply this mask once per week and I have gotten rid of the pimples that I used to have. When I was a teenager and had problems with acne, I also used this and I have to admit that even then it was very helpful. My mother's friend is a cosmetologist and this was her recipe for problematic skin. After using this mask you will notice a reduction in shininess, pores and it will help rid your face of pimples.

  3. 3
    Add oil.
    Add half a tablespoon of olive oil to the powdered aspirin.

  4. 4
    Add lemon.
    Add about 3/4 tablespoon of lemon juice to the aspirin.

  5. 5
    Mix well.
    Mix the oil and the lemon juice into the aspirin until it is fully mixed and there are no dry clumps of aspirin left.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    Apply to your face.
    Once the lemon, oil, and aspirin are fully mixed together, you need to apply it to your face and leave it on for 10-15 minutes. I am going to use the teaspoon to apply it, and my fingers to spread it over my face. It is easier to apply if you are lying down or leaning back. You want to avoid the areas around your eyes and lips. I am holding the plate under my chin just in case some of the mix drops off. It actually smells quite nice. You could also ask someone to help you apply this mask like a sister, friend, mother, or significant other.

  7. 7
    Wait 10 to 15 minutes.
    You have to wait for 10 to 15 minutes so that it will absorb into your skin. After 10 to 15 minutes, I am going to wash this off with warm water. Keep in mind that you have to apply this mask once per week to see continuing results. In a month, you will not remember what pimples look like, just as I have. I still apply this mask to help avoid the reappearance of pimples.

    All we need is raw honey and cinnamon.

  2. 2
    To make a perfect proportion for exactly one usage we need one tablespoon worth of honey and one teaspoon worth of cinnamon.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    All I need to do now is to mix it up.
    I got this honey on the farmer's market next to my house. You could do that or you could order it from Amazon. Make sure that it is a raw honey. Well, you could use any honey but the raw one will work the best if you're looking into getting rid of acne.

  4. 4
    Also, using such mask periodically, let's say once week, in a couple of weeks you will notice the change in your skin tone, skin face and skin color.
    It will become more smooth and you will get rid of any red marks. Your skin condition will improve so much. Now, let's apply it on the face.

  5. 5
    Before applying the honey and cinnamon mask, you have to wash your face.
    Even better, do the procedure after the shower. Also, you need to put all of your hair up because you, probably, do not want to end up with honey on your hair.

  6. 6
    There's no more hair anywhere on my face so let's apply.
    Smells, really good. I will just apply with the tips of my fingers.

  7. 7
    It's very sticky.
    You need to be very careful to not drop it anywhere on your clothes. It would be extremely difficult to get rid of that honey.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  8. 8
    Avoid the area around your eyes and around your lips.
    Don't put it close to your lips. Honey and cinnamon together should produce the warming effect and you'll feel the heat. This is absolutely normal.

  9. 9
    Keep that mask for 15 or 20 minutes on your face to achieve a better results.
    I have a little hair here but I'll wash it off together with my face.

    Such a nice smell - I cannot express it to you.
    I just dropped honey on my clothes so I have to take everything off them. I will change after I'm done - I was hoping that it would not happen to me.

    If you could see, I have some left-overs - let's see if there is a missing spot.
    That's where I will go for the second layer. See, there's a drop running towards my eye.

  3. 3
    Make sure there are no pieces of it left, the better it is mashed, the better it is going to be on your face.
    Also, using lemon juice will help you to whiten the acne spots, or after post acne spots if you call it that way, just any marks if you have them, the lemon will help you get rid of them.

    Next thing, I need approximately a teaspoon worth of lemon juice.
    So I am slicing it and this should be enough. Squeeze it. If you can see this is approximately a teaspoon. Let's just add a couple more drops.

    Last ingredient is an egg white from just one egg.

  7. 7
    Actually I think a little hint of cinnamon would go really well.
    Cinnamon is a spice that will give you warmth, a nice smell and because of its anti-bacterial effect, you might want to use it in your anti-acne mask. Here's my cinnamon, I will just add a tiny bit. Approximately a quarter of a teaspoon of cinnamon in here.

  2. 2
    Your welcome to use the aloe juice is you happen to have that at home.
    You just cut the leaf in half and twist the juice, but I don't have such so I am using the Aloe extract. If you're using a juice from the aloe plant at home, you should be using a tablespoon of it, but I have an extract. So I am going to be using a teaspoon. I am not going to be making a huge amount. I need approximately one teaspoon worth of honey.

Method 5: with Oatmeal

Hi, you're watching VisiHow. My name is Kara and in this video I will teach you how to make anti-acne oatmeal mask. So if you have problematic skin with pimples and you get a little bit of irritable skin and just it's not perfect but you would like to fix that and get rid of your pimples and acne then this recipe is for you. All I need for that kind of mask is oatmeal, lemon juice, and hot water. So let's get started.

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Make an Acne Mask at Home with Oatmeal METHOD.mp4~canvas0.jpg

Steps

  1. 1
    We'll open oatmeal box first and I will use 2 ½ tablespoon of oatmeal.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  2. 2
    I just boil my water.
    It's not boiling hot, but it's hot. So I will put just a little bit to make my oatmeal soak. It needs to soak up and get bigger. Do not use freshly boiled water because the temperature might kill the micro-element and vitamin that we need to get from the oatmeal.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    Just let it sit for a while.
    Let it soak. It's quite warm. Now the water should not be boiling hot, but it should be hotter than warm. Basically just is hot water. So let it sit.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    Also, I will need some lemon juice because of its anti-bacterial effect, as well as its lightening effect.
    So I have approximately 1 teaspoon worth of lemon juice.
    Make an Acne Mask at Home with Oatmeal METHOD.mp4~canvas112 336486.jpg

    Let's mix it all up.

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    Okay, as you can see the oatmeal is soaking already.
    It's becoming sticky. As you have noticed, I am not adding any oils or anything else in this mask because with acne skin because your skin is already oily enough, we don't want that. We want to dry skin off just a tiny bit and to heal up the acne. So you will want to make your oatmeal mask sit for 5 minutes, then apply it to a clean skin. I would recommend you to apply it right after a shower. Also, I would recommend you to apply this mask while being in the shower, because of how it is, it's really mush and the pieces might be falling off on you. Apply it on your face and keep it for 20 minutes. After which you can wash it off with warm water and don't forget to apply your favorite facial cream. The mask is almost ready so I'll wait for a couple more minutes and then I'll go jump in the bathroom and apply it to my face and enjoy the results.
