Egg facial Cleanser
Eggs have long been known to improve skin with acne. A good source of protein, fatty acids, and Vitamin A, a simple egg cleanser can tighten pores and reduce oil production. To use, take one egg, mix both the yolk and the whites. If you want you can add Vitamin E oil. Then take a cotton ball, dip it into the egg solution and apply it to your face. Leave it on your face for about 10 to 15 minutes then wash it off using water. This acne treatment can be done once a week
Honey and oatmeal cleanser
Honey is a great ingredient to use on your skin and mixing it with oatmeal makes it even better. Oatmeal helps exfoliate your skin. Mix honey and oatmeal to form a paste. To use it as a mask just leave it on your face for 15 minutes then rinse with water. To use it as a scrub, apply it on your skin and rub the mixture in circular motions. Rinse with water after scrubbing.
Oily skin cleanser
For people suffering from oily skin a mask made up of tomato, yogurt, oatmeal, and cucumber might do the trick. Prepare a tomato, peel the skin away, and remove the seeds with a strainer. Add in slices of mashed cucumber, 2 spoons of oatmeal, Vitamin E oil, two spoonfuls of yogurt, and crushed mint leaf. Apply the mask to your face and leave for about ten minutes then remove by using a damp towel.
