We’ve compiled some recipes that use easy-to-find ingredients.
1. Turmeric Acne Mask
Turmeric face mask is a natural antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, so it is good for calming irritated acne on the skin.

Dip a cotton swab in vinegar and apply it on your skin. Mix turmeric powder and honey and wait 5 minutes before applying the mask. Use the mask with clean hands to avoid eye contact.
After leaving the mask on for 15-20 minutes, wash it off with warm water. If the turmeric powder turns your skin yellow, use a cotton swab dipped in milk to wipe off the stain. This mask can be used twice a week.
2. Avocado and Lemon Spot Treatment Mask
Avocado stimulates the production of collagen, which helps cell renewal. Avocados also contain antioxidant fatty acids that provide hydration that won’t clog pores. Honey has antibacterial properties and lemon juice reduces pigmentation.
• 1 ripe avocado
• 1 tablespoon of raw honey
• half a lemon
Mash 1 ripe avocado until soft, add 1 tbsp honey and squeeze half a lemon. Mix well and use as a topical treatment or apply to the acne area. If you have sensitive skin, use less lemon or avoid it altogether. Leave it for 5-10 minutes.
A note of caution when using lemon juice: Although lemon has healing and moisturizing properties, it can make the skin sensitive to light. Because lemon is sensitive to light, it is recommended to use it at night. Wash your face thoroughly after use and prepare zinc oxide SPF 30+ sunscreen when you go out the next day.
3. Face Mask with Honey and Baking Soda
Combine antibacterial baking soda with exfoliating lemon juice and comforting honey to create a simple and effective anti-acne face mask.

Mix lemon juice, honey and baking soda in a small bowl. Mix well and apply to face and neck. Avoid eye contact (lemon juice and honey can sting). Do not rub into your skin, turn it into a scrub. After 15 minutes, remove the mask with lukewarm water and wash off with cold water.
Lemon peel is sensitive to light, so apply the mask at night as described in the first recipe, and be sure to use sunscreen when you go out the next day.
