DIY: Honey And Oatmeal Masks

Acne can be anyone’s worst nightmare. The painful boils, the stubborn scars, and no chemical product seems to work. Natural home remedies and a clean diet have been known to be more forgiving for our skin. The more common solutions for acne are ones we can find in our fridge or local supermarket:
Oats: are the generally the best cleansing agent that contain anti-inflammatory properties and saponins, great for sensitive skin.Honey: nourishes aging skin, known to open pores and with antibacterial and antioxidant properties it gives your skin the perfect glow

Lemon: reduces oil, contains antibacterial and anti-fungal properties to fight off acne and blackheads and help fade dark spots and acne scars
