DIY Facial Mask (best for treating acne scars)

Hello, guys! Happy Friday and Happy Valentines Day :) Today I decided to post a skincare DIY and I am sure that most of the ingredients in this recipe can be found in your kitchen cupboards or fridge. If you don't have them in your cupboards, don’t worry, they are inexpensive. Some of you might be suffering form acne/pimple scars and this DIY is a great help in treating them.

The ingredients are:

½ Slice of Lemon

½ tsp. olive oil

2 tsps. honey

2 tbsps. Oats

1 teabag

This DIY is very easy and affordable to make. The ingredients used are very beneficial to skin. The ingredients are very well known in every skincare DIY and I’m sure you’re sick of hearing about it. I tell you to listen and try these again because they do work!
Anyways, I’m going to tell you the benefits of each ingredient for your skin.
Lemon contains 5%-6& of citric acid and we all know that it is rich in Vitamin C. Vitamin C is effective for healthy glowing skin. Lemon juice also contains astringents which can lighten the skin and this is good for acne scars. Sure you’ve also heard to put the lemon juice on your acne and leave it overnight to cure the acne. This works too, but, if you have dark skin, don’t use lemon juice alone as it can leave dark marks! I have dark skin myself and I’ve tried it before and I’m not going to lie, it left dark scar on my skin. Anyways, Lemon juice is also beneficial for the skin because it can also kill bacteria that can cause to acne.
Olive Oil
Olive oil can hydrate dry skin. This is a good alternative to relieve the dryness of your skin during winter time. When picking olive oil, make sure it is unrefined and natural as this contains anti-oxidants which can help repair skin damage and as we all know, anti-oxidants can help prevent wrinkles. Olive oil also soothes and relieves chapped, itchy and cracked skin.
Like olive oil, honey can also act as anti-aging agent and moisturizer.  Honey can also help protect the skin Additionally the natural properties it has can protect the skin from sun rays and facilitates the skin’s ability to rejuvenate. This can also soften the skin by refreshing your tired skin which leaves it hydrated. Ancient women use this to keep a youthful, radiant, a smooth skin.

Green Tea
I’m pretty sure you know that green tea is good for your metabolism which can help you withyour weight. Green tea is also good for your skin and I’ve heard beauty gurus talking about this.

Did you know that in 2000 BC Egyptians and Arabians use oats for the beauty of their skin?Like all the other ingredients it can be used for treatment of acne and it can also help with the dryness of your skin. Putting oats on your skin will help fight the dullness and the flaky dryness of your skin.  The reason for this is that they contain polisaccharides, which become gelatinous in water, thus forming a fine protective film when applied on skin.

The information above aren't made up. I have researched them and hopefully it will help you! :) 

Step 1
Take a soaked teabag, squeeze it until the extra water is gone. Then open the teabag and put the tea in a bowl and add the 1/2 sliced lemon. Mix.

Step 2
Add two teaspoons of honey. Mix.

Step 3
Add 1/4 teaspoon of olive oil. Mix. 
Step 4
Add 2 teaspoon of sugar. Mix.

Step 5
Add  2 tablespoon oats. You can add a little extra if you want and keep mixing until you get a pasty texture.
After you get this done, you can now then put this mixture in your clean face. Leave this for a good 15 minutes and rinse it off. That's it! :)
Take care.
xoxo, Xyza
