My acne was so bad at one point that I cancelled plans with friends left and right because I couldn’t stand to be out in public. It was impossible for me to make eye contact with someone because I felt they were just staring at my acne.
Some of the symptoms I’m sure you’re aware of are oily skin, excess dead skin, excess bacteria and of course, pimples. The key for how to get clear skin fast lies in dealing with the actual problems that are inside your body and not just the external symptoms.
The following home remedies for how to get clear skin fast work very well because they deal with the real problems that cause acne and on top of that, they’re much cheaper than typical options. You can finally treat yourself from your own home and successfully get rid of acne by learning how to make your own detoxifying face mask to clear your skin off toxins.
Avocado Green Clay Detoxifying Face Mask
To create this mask, you will need 2 tablespoons each of mashed avocado, mashed peach and French green clay powder. First, you mix the mashed avocado and peach together and then you add in the green clay powder to form a thick paste which you can apply on your face and neck.
You rinse off after 20 minutes using lukewarm water and then cold water to close up the skin pores so that your skin won’t get dry. Then you dry your face and put on some moisturizer.
French green Clay also contains a large proportion of Montmorillonite and therefore has great absorbing powers. In addition it contains an organic material in a form of decomposed species of seaweed. French Green Clay has a milder detoxifying effect on skin than Calcium Bentonite Clay.
French green clay draws out the toxins but nourishes the skin as well due to organic seaweed content. Whereas Calcium Bentonite Clay is most suitable for oily and problem skin, Green French Clay is best used for oily and combined skin. French green clay is the best choice for green clay if you have acne scars, spots, marks or patchy skin.
This Green Clay Mask draws and extracts toxins from your skin, making it particularly effective for acne, pimple and blackhead prone skin. A Green Clay Facial Mask opens the pores of your skin and removes deep build up, grime and toxins. This clay mask is also ideal if your skin has a tired or dull complexion.
Bentonite Clay Detoxifying Face Mask
To prepare this mask, you will need 2 tablespoons of Bentonite Clay, 1 teaspoon of Virgin Coconut Oil, half tablespoon of Raw Organic Honey (or manuka honey) and juice of half a lemon.
You mix the ingredients together and apply to your freshly washed face.
When using clays for face or body masks the thicker the application the greater the drawing effect. Once applied allow the clay to dry and wash it away as soon as it has dried.
If left on once dried, the clay may draw essential moisture out of the skin which is generally not a desired effect. Alternatively, spray the clay with plain or floral water when it starts to dry out. Once removed, clay takes the toxins from the skin so avoid the temptation to reuse the clay. The better thing to do is to apply some moisturizer on your face.
Bentonite clay is healing for your skin. It is alkalizing and detoxifying, which makes it an excellent ingredient for a weekly facial mask. It will absorb any toxins on your skin and release beneficial minerals in the process.
Banana Detoxifying Face Mask
You can also free your pores from the oil and dirty excess by using this nutritive banana detox facial. First of all, cleanse your skin gently to prepare your pores for detoxification. Mash a banana and mix it with 1 tablespoon of raw organic honey (or manuka honey).
You apply this mixture on your skin and make sure you leave out the area around the eyes. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes and finally rinse it off with lukewarm water and then cold water to close off the skin pores so that your skin will not dry up. This treatment will remove the dead skin cells and will unclog the pores to let your skin breathe naturally.
Coffee Cocoa Detoxifying Face Mask
To prepare this mask, you will need 2 tablespoons freshly ground coffee,2 tablespoons pure cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon raw organic honey (or manuka honey) and 3 tablespoons of organic plain yogurt or sour cream.
You blend all of the ingredients together, spread evenly over skin, and allow it to sit for about 10 minutes. While you rinse it off, massage your face gently to exfoliate as well. If there is any mask left over after you wash your face with it, add a bit of water to it and use it as a scrub for the backs of your arms and any other body part that could do with some smoothing.
The caffeine from coffee grounds in this mask helps to reduce swelling and puffiness, while the antioxidants in the cocoa help to reduce aging, and the yogurt replenishes lost moisture.
Oatmeal Yogurt Detoxifying Face Mask
To create this mask, you will need 1 tablespoon oatmeal and 1 tablespoon natural plain yogurt. You place the oatmeal in the bowl and crush it with the back of a spoon (alternatively, you can blend it in a food processor or buy the fine grained brand). Add the yogurt and mix well.
Let it sit for a couple of minutes while the oatmeal softens up. While you’re waiting, you could cleanse and dry your face.
You can now apply a liberal amount to a clean, dry face using your fingertips or a small makeup brush. Rinse thoroughly after 15 minutes, exfoliating the skin with the oatmeal. Dry, tone and moisturise as normal.
Strawberry Aspirin Detoxifying Face Mask
You mash up 2 tablespoons of ripe strawberries with 2 tablespoons of natural plain yoghurt. Then you add in half of a crushed and powdered aspirin. You can easily crush the aspirin between two spoons. You spread over the mixture on your face paying particular attention to any inflamed spots, leave on for at least thirty minutes before removing.
This mask is also good for teenagers, it isn’t greasy at all so doesn’t add to what can be an already quite oily skin. If the acne has spread to the back and chest area, as it so often does, then make up a larger batch and get someone to help you spread it all over the affected areas.
Leave the mask on for up to 15 minutes and then rinse the mixture off with lukewarm water and follow closely by cold water to close up the skin pores. For maximum effect use this mask daily for a week and then twice a week to maintain a health skin.
Strawberry Honey Detoxifying Face Mask
You combine these two ingredients in a nutritive and revitalizing treatment. Use a medium bowl to mix 2 tablespoons of strawberries with 2 tablespoons of raw organic honey (or manuka honey).
You apply the mixture on your cleansed skin. This is the ultimate condition to guarantee the success of your detoxification ritual. Leave the mask on for at least 15 minutes, and then wash it off with lukewarm water first and follow by cold water to close up the skin pores. You should include this beauty session into your weekly skin care routine to enjoy the fabulous effect of a flawless complexion.
