Try These Homemade Treatments For Oily Skin And Acne

This is going to sound crazy, but Womenio swears that one of the best homemade masks for oily skin and acne can be found in the pet department of your local store. To be more precise, you’ll find it in the cat section. It turns out that clay-based brands of cat litter are made of the same kind of clay that’s used in expensive facial treatments. How crazy is that? Be sure to check the label to make sure the cat litter you choose is made of bentonite clay without additives, and you want to grind it up to a fine mixture if it’s in large chunks. Just mix with a few tablespoons of water and for a pleasant scent, a few drops of essential oil, and you have a super cheap mask that will help tighten your pores and treat excessively oily skin. Note: this is not for dry skin and if you happen to have cats, you might not want to lay down during this treatment lest they mistake you for a new alternative to the kitty box.

Here’s another facial mask you may not have heard of that is aimed at treating acne. The aspirin facial mask is made by crushing up three aspirin then mixing them with another skin treatment ingredient such as warm honey, or an oil such as olive, coconut, or almond oil. Apply it, dry it, and not only will you help fight acne, but this facial mask is supposed to treat and minimize fine lines, as well.
