Homemade face masks for acne skin

Acne skin is usually oily skin, which is more prone to clogged hair follicle opening and bacteria growth, leading to blackheads and whiteheads.

To prevent this from happening, you can use face masks that absorb excess fat, soothe the skin and fight the bacteria that contribute to the appearance of acne.

1. Clay Cucumber Face Mask

Cucumber cleanses and refreshes oily skin, clay absorbs excess oil produced by the skin, and juniper and lavender essence oils are purifying and also help to normalize oil production, preventing the appearance of acne. However, if you don’t have these essential oils at home, you can prepare the mask just with yogurt, cucumber and clay.


  • 2 teaspoons of low-fat plain yogurt;
  • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped cucumber pulp;
  • 2 teaspoons of cosmetic clay;
  • 2 drops of lavender essential oil;
  • 1 drop of juniper essential oil.

Preparation mode

Add all the ingredients and mix well until you get a paste. Then clean the skin and apply the mask, leaving it on for 15 minutes. Finally, remove the paste with a warm, damp towel.
