Acne spot treatments are a great addition to any skincare routine. They're perfect for treating the occasional odd breakout, and can in some cases produce results overnight as the treatment is often left overnight. What many acne sufferers may not be aware of is that you can make your own acne spot treatment. Here are 2 recipes for DIY Acne Spot Treatments using our New Skin Who 'Dis Acne Face Mask.
DIY Acne Spot Treatment With Apple Cider Vinegar
You will need:
1 teaspoon of our New Skin Who 'Dis Acne Face Mask
1/2 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of Water
A Clean Mask Bowl
Put 1 teaspoon of your New Skin Who 'Dis Face Mask in your mixing bowl. Our New Skin Who 'Dis Face Mask contains powerful herbal ingredients such as Neem, and Fenugreek to treat acne resulting in clearer, pimple free skin. Neem fights acne causing bacteria, regulates oil production, and reduces redness. Fenugreek treats blackheads, and calms the inflammation that causes acne.
To that add 1/2 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar, and 1/2 teaspoon of water. It is very important to dilute your Apple Cider Vinegar, as it may be too harsh for your skin in its pure form.
Apple Cider Vinegar is an excellent choice for a spot treatment as it not only has strong anti-bacterial properties, but it's acidic characteristics help your skin to better fight pimples and prevent future breakouts.
Skin is naturally acidic with pH of 5.5. This helps to protect skin from acne causing bacteria, as bacteria has a harder time surviving in acidic environments. Apple Cider Vinegar restores acidity to the skin that may be lost through cleansing, and make it better able to kill the bacteria that causes acne.
Mix ingredients together until it forms a paste, then use a clean Q-tip to apply to pimples. Can be left on overnight. When you wake up, wash skin as usual, and pat dry (Tip: Using a separate towel just for your face can do wonders for reducing pimples).
