DIY "Do It Yourself" Facial Masks

I know a lot of you out there struggle with acne.  Acne is a pain in the ass and has many causes! There is no "quick fix" and there are so many treatment options.  Facial masks can aid in healing and clearing acne when used frequently.

Here are a few DIY facial mask recipes I personally use and love.

Strawberry Mask
4-5 very ripe strawberries
1-2 teaspoon of honey

Rinse strawberries and place out to dry on a paper towel.  In a small bowl mash fruit with a fork.  Add honey and mix well, adding more honey for a desired consistency.  

Apply immediately on clean skin.  Leave on 20 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.

Banana Mask
1/2 to 1 ripe banana

Apply mashed banana to clean skin and leave on 5-10 minus. Rinse with lukewarm water

Honey is also great to add to this mask!!

Aspirin Mask
5-6 uncoated aspirin 
a few drops of water

Brake aspirins in halves and place in small dish.  Add 4 drops of water and crush aspirin with a spoon until you have a smooth white paste (adding more water drops to desired consistency)

Oatmeal Honey Mask
1/2 cup of cooked plain oatmeal
1-2 table spoons of honey
a few teaspoons of water to make paste

Cook plain oatmeal as directed and let cool.  Add in honey and warm water to mix together and make a paste.  Leave on 5-10 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.

Yogurt Mask
1/2 of plain yogurt

Apply to face and let sit for 10-20 minutes.  You can add honey to make this mask thicker.  Strawberries and also a great option!

Have you tried any of these masks?? What are you favorite DIY masks??
