We’re  all wishing for that silk-like skin, while some of us are naturally blessed, the majority of us are dealing and struggling with acne. Maybe not even all of us deal with active acne but just those little pesky bumps that never seem to leave. 

First let’s talk about your skin, your epidermis (skin) is your first line of protection against bacteria and viruses. Your skin keeps you cool in the heat and warm in the cold temperatures. Your skin is also the first to let you know when something is not going right on the inside. The usual signs are acne, rashes, dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, sores, bruising, and moles. By using natural DIY facial masks at home, you can minimize daily pollutants, bacteria, and other infections that may settle on your delicate skin. So here are the top 5 masks that are sure to help you out. 

1. Honey, Oats and Whole Milk:

Most over-the-counter acne treatments contain harsh ingredients that can do your skin more harm than good. Skip the chemicals and go with an all-natural treatment, like honey, instead.Honey is a natural nourishing agent known for its ability to help skin retain moisture, which prevents your body from producing excess oil that can lead to acne. Oats are beneficial for acne-prone skin too. They contain properties that will help keep your skin clear and healthy. Add to that the skin-tightening lactic acid in whole milk, and you’ve got a great recipe for all your acne-prevention needs.

2. Add 1 tablespoon of whole milk and mix until you’ve made a paste.
