STRAWBERRY SCRUB

Strawberries are a natural source of salicylic acid, which is found in a lot of anti-acne products. To make a zit-busting scrub, simply mash together ½ cup of fresh strawberries, 1 tablespoon of honey, a teaspoon of olive oil, and a few drops of lemon in a bowl. Apply the mixture onto clean skin and leave it on for 15 minutes before rinsing off with water.

OATMEAL-ONION MASK

Onion acts as an inflammatory agent to block the overproduction of collagen, which can lead to acne scarring. Oatmeal, on the other hand, penetrates deeply into clogged pores to eliminate excessive cell buildup. For an simple mask, puree a medium-size onion in a food processor and add it to ½ cup of cooked, unsweetened oatmeal. Apply the mixture to a clean face and allow it to dry for 15 minutes. Rinse face, then pat dry with a towel.
