Combine 1 tbsp. of plain oatmeal with 2 tbsp. of honey and mix well until it turns into a paste. Stir in a few drops of aloe vera or jojoba oil, which will moisturize and soothe skin. Massage onto your skin for 30 seconds and allow to sit until the paste is fully dry—about 15 minutes. Wash the mask off with tepid water and a washcloth. Be sure not to scrub your skin.
Baking Soda (NOT baking powder) and water.
Mix a little together in your hands after washing your face with a mild cleanser and apply gently to your skin. Once you’ve coated your face with the baking soda and water mix, let it sit while you do other things around the house, or relax and read a book.
Rinse the baking soda film off your face and feel how soft and clear it feels. If your skin enjoys this recipe, and your acne improves, then you may try it several times a week to help clear your acne.
