The first one you can make is by taking two tablespoons of lemon juice and combine it with two tablespoons of distilled water. You then can take this mixture and put it on your face with a clean cotton ball. This will help to remove any excess oil there might be on your skin. It will also help to clean your pores as well as tighten them. This will also kill any bacteria that is on the surface of the skin. This is a great toner for anyone with oily skin.
Another one that you can make is a mixture of 1/ teaspoon of cornstarch with one teaspoon of coconut milk and one teaspoon of pineapple juice. You will then stir this until it becomes a smooth paste. Next you will put the paste on your skin like a mask and let it stay on your skin for 10 minutes. After ten minutes you will then rinse your face with warm water. You should try using this mask two times a week for it to heal your skin and help get rid of blemishes.
You can also take a tomato and remove the skin and the seeds from the tomato and discard. Now crush up the tomato and then add one teaspoon of lemon juice, one tablespoon of dried mint leaves, two tablespoons to the instant oatmeal and then add ½ tablespoon of dried yeast. Make sure to mix well and then apply it on your face like a mask. Leave the mixture on your face for 10 minutes and then wash off with warm water. This is a mask that you can use three times a week and it will help to normalize your skin and to get rid of the acne as well.
Yogurt is something else that you can use. Take a ½ cup of plain yogurt and combine it with 3 tablespoons of crushed up almonds. This can be used as a facial scrub to help get rid of blemishes and to help clean out your pores. Don't use this more than once a week because it could be too abrasive for you skin if you were to use it more often than that.
One final one that you might want to try would be where you take three tablespoons of honey and combine it with one teaspoon of cinnamon powders. Put this on your face and let it dry. You can then go to bed with it on your face and wash it off with warm water in the morning. This one is safe to use every night if you wanted to, to help you fight the acne.
Note: It's probably a good idea before you try any of these to make them up and put a small amount either behind your ear or on your arm on the inside. If there are no signs of irritation within an hours time then it's safe to say that they will be OK to use on your face.
