DIY - The BEST pore cleansing, acne busting, skin brightening face mask... EVER



Tryna look cute with a porridge face. Not easy.

Basically, I'm pretty much feeling like a medical marvel right now....

People who know me will know I've been struggling with my skin recently. When I was pregnant it was, for the first time in YEARS, smooth and glowing with only the odd pimple. Right now, I am in the midst of an invasion. My skin issues are hormonal, I have polycystic type ovaries and therefore I know I'm probably going to be in a lifelong battle with these little (and sometimes effin massive) blighters.

After being ill from taking my daily concoction of tablets I decided enough was enough. I am going the au naturel route.  I started doing some investigating and have therefore spent the last two days rubbing banana peel on my fizzog and using organic apple cider vinegar as a toner. I have to say, although I do stink of vinegar, I have definitely seen an improvement. My acne areas are smoothing out and my skin tone (in my non problematic areas) is becoming very even and clear!


For the first time, in what seems like forever, I am off out with the girls for a day in York tomorrow and I really want to give these zits a good old blast. So, I started doing some research and came up with the most AMAZING face mask I have ever used. You are literally going to get instant brightening, tightening and clearer skin with this mask and all of the ingredients are easily accessible.

  1. Aspirin - an anti-inflammatory (if you're spot free (lucky *beep*) you can omit this ingredient)
  2. Honey - a wonderful natural anti-inflammatory and very healing with it's antibacterial properties
  3. Lemon - a fantastic natural cleanser and astringent, great for unclogging pores
  4. Oats - an effective skin conditioner and exfoliant (I used Ready Brek and found it to be perfect for mixing with the rest of the ingredients to achieve a smooth paste)
  5. Almond milk - anti-aging qualities, loaded with vitamins, minerals and lactic acid - great to help fade skin discolouration
I crushed 4 aspirins and mixed them with a spoon full of honey, the juice from half a lemon, a dash of almond milk and 3 tablespoons of oats. Adjust the amount of milk to create your desired texture, you want a sort of thick paste. Apply the mixture to your entire face, keep slapping it on! Don't you just look absolutely dah-ling right now?!?! After no less than 15 minutes and no longer than 30 minutes, remove the mask with warm water and clean hands. Use the oats on your face as an exfoliant. Pat dry with a clean towel and ta-daaaa! Squeaky clean, beautiful skin.

I have never seen my pores so clear. I recommend a minimum of once a week; for acne prone skin try and do it two to three times a week. I use this facemask in conjunction with my Arbonne FC5 cleanser and moisturiser. The FC5 range contains fresh cells naturally derived from kiwi's, strawberries, carrots, mangoes and pumpkins it's aim is to soothe and calm irritated skin. Which is why I think it is such a perfect partner for this natural DIY facemask.

Happy mixing my fellow alchemists (ok, maybe not quite, but we can pretend, right?!!)
