You must have patience and consistency to treat acne. In this article I’ll be discussing about using mint face mask for acne.
As you grow many things change, so does your skin. With hormonal imbalance excess sebum is produced, which blocks skin pores leading to acne or pimples. It is one of the most common skin disorder found all over the world. There is nothing you can do to stop them, but luckily you can get rid of them.
An average teenager think about cosmetic creams when he seen a pimple popping out. It’s not his/her fault; we all are surrounded by loads of advertising campaigns calming to treat acne. But, only few people knew that regular use of these chemical included creams may affect your skin’s healthy functionality.
Natural remedies are packed with vitamins that are essential for your skin. They don’t have irritants which can triggers allergic reaction. However, in few people natural ingredients may cause allergic reaction. So you must patch test before using any remedy.

Take fresh mint leaves and grind them to make smooth paste. Apply the mask over acne blemishes as spot treatment.
If you’ve oily skin, then you can alternatively add multani mitti or rosewater to mint face mask. Dry skin people can just add rosewater and see how it hydrates the skin.
Leave the face mask to dry naturally and rinse it off after 15-20 minutes.
