2 DIY Facial Masks for Acne

Hello bloggers! I got a lot of homework done earlier tonight and now I am just relaxing. The tickle in my throat is under control, for now. I really do hope it will not turn into something terrible... Anyways, I am still on my journey to achieving clear, acne-free skin. I found two simple, wallet-friendly facial masks to make!

Credits to, which is a great blog for skin, hair, and body care + more :) I stumbled across this blog over a year ago and it was lost in my bookmarks folder from my old laptop. I decided to click on said folder today and look what I found :)

Green Tea & Chocolate Antioxidant Facial Mask

  • 1 Tbsp Matcha Tea Powder (or you can cut open a tea bag with powdered tea leaves!)
  • 1 Tbsp Dark Cocoa Powder
  • Enough honey to make a paste
* Mix together and apply the paste; rinse after 20 minutes.

Garlic and Oatmeal Scrub for Blackheads & Whiteheads
[Do this every day for 3 days straight!]
  • 2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • 1 Tbsp ground oatmeal
  • 2-3 drops of fresh lemon juice
  • Enough honey to make a paste
* Mix together and apply the paste
* Leave on for 2 minutes, then exfoliate for 1 min (circular motion)
* Rinse

Again, credits go to I have not tried these masks yet because we do not have honey in our apartment! :( But I am very excited to test them out. I love facial masks, I love DIYs, I love using natural ingredients, and I love anything that could possibly rid my face of acne! 


  1. Another really good one is mixing oatmeal with a little honey. My friends and I used to do this all the time... And of course, it's delicious!

  2. Ooh, thanks Lainey! I'll be sure to try all of these, once I get some honey!
