Also, keep in mind that some old acne scars might be more difficult to get rid of. However, if you consistently work with these face masks, the results will definitely be visible. I love these face masks because the ingredients contain certain natural bleaching agents which will lighten your acne scars. Thus, without further ado, let’s see what we need to prepare these face masks for acne scars.
1. Yogurt and Cucumber Face Mask
As you can see, you only need these two ingredients, more specifically:
– a small cucumber
– 2 tablespoons of yogurt.
To make this, you need to blend the small cucumber in a processor to make a paste. Then, simply mix it with the yogurt. All you have to do is apply it to your face. Make sure it is clean beforehand. You can use your hands for this but you could also do it with a clean brush for masks. Then, leave it to dry out, it will probably take half an hour. Lastly, rinse it off with lukewarm water and pat the skin until is completely dry.
This face mask is perfect for acne scars because the cucumber has astringent properties that will be lightening the scars. Also, the yogurt has natural cooling effects which will reduce any inflammation and redness.
2. Aloe Vera Face Mask
For this recipe, you will need:
– 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel
– 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Thus, simply mix the ingredients very well and apply a thick layer on your clean face. You should also leave it to act for at least half an hour after which you can rinse the mask off.
The Aloe Vera gel will contribute tremendously to new cells growth, regenerating the skin. Thus, the acne scars will gradually start to fade and the lemon juice will help even more removing the dead skin cells.
Keep in mind, you should apply both these face masks at least daily to get the desired result.
