This is a great mask used to clear up acne and acne scars. If you are consistent you will see a difference. It is a gentle mask but if you find yourself getting irritated use less lemon juice and more water.
You will need 1/2 lemon (use 3/4- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice), 2 tablespoon of baking soda, 1 1/2 - 2 tablespoon of water, a few drops of tea tree oil. Mix all ingredients into a paste (not too runny - add water slowly) and spread evenly on your face. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse thoroughly. Follow with your astringent or toner and your moisturizer. You will see your acne or acne scars start to fade. You can do this 2 to 3 times per week.
For maximum results, it’s best to do these masks once or twice a week. And it’s a good idea to do these after you’ve had a steamy shower. That’s because the steam opens pores, allowing the organic mask to penetrate deeper into the skin. Because the ingredients are fresh and spoil easily, keep them in the refrigerator in an air-tight container and pitch after about a week. (You don’t want to put decomposing produce on your skin. Freshness is key.)
