Homemade face masks for blackhead and acne

Have you ever tried any homemade DIY face mask and instantly fell in love with it and then you get all hyped up and start telling people about it? Yes, that was my exact reaction when I tried 3 simple homemade face masks and I couldn’t hold myself back so I am going to share it with you guys.

To be honest, I have always loved trying out things myself. From making my own face masks and body scrubs to even making cute DIY crop tops and ripped jeans.

Things I wanted to get rid of:

When I first tried these face masks, I wanted to combat a few things:

1. Excessively oily nose

2. Blackheads

3. Clogged Pores

4. Acne scars  and

5. Hyperpigmentation

But amazingly after trying them out for a couple of weeks, I ended up with a face that was:

1. hydrated

2. Unclogged

3. Acne scar-free

4. Evenly toned

5. Soft

6. Radiant and

7. Smoother

Unbelievable right? And the best part? All these ingredients are things we have in our kitchen! So you basically don’t need to start running from one market to another looking for them. the only journey is to your kitchen. How amazing is that? Now, this is what I call the budget-friendly, perfect for lazy and busy people face masks.

Before I start, I will like To know that I have a combination skin where my t-zone is always oily and the rest of my face is normal and I don’t react to any of these ingredients. If you’re allergic to any of the ingredients I am about to mention, please do yourself the favor and stay away from them.

Also, I will also advise you to try these mask on a small part of your skin first to see how you react to it before applying it to your face.

The homemade DIY face masks I am about to share with you have a combination of either two of the following of ingredients

hone and lemon homemade face mask

A. Cinnamon

B. Lemon

C. Egg whites

D. Turmeric and

E. Honey

Here are a few benefits of each ingredient:


Cinnamon has antibacterial and antifungal properties which fight acne and pimples. It is good for oily skin as it regulates the oil production on the face. Not only does it cleanses skin pores and exfoliates the dead skin cells, but it also improves fine lines by plumping the skin.


Lemon also contains antibacterial properties, helping fight the bacteria agents causing your breakouts. It is a great oil eliminator and can be used to treat hyperpigmentation of the face. It also fades acne scars and reduces redness.

Egg white

Egg whites are rich in protein and albumin that have skin toning properties and promotes wrinkle free skin.they are excellent for oily skin because they tighten large pores and help get rid of blackheads by squeezing them out to the skin surface when tightening. They also reduce under eye puffiness

It also has antibacterial properties that treat acne. It has anti-inflammatory properties which can treat inflammation caused by pimples. The bleaching properties of turmeric can help treat skin pigmentation and it also prevents wrinkles.
