DIY Acne Scar Reducing Mask

This Acne Scar Reducing Mask is courtesy of Bubzbeauty.com. She has a very good step by step video on how to prepare the mask. Check out her youtube channel.

After watching bubby's video and all the good reviews by the viewers, I think of giving this mask a try. All the ingredients are usually available in the kitchen except apple cider vinegar. You can get it at any supermarket. I got mine from Carrefour and it is organic. Do not use other types of vinegar because the they are not the same. You might burn your face if you use the normal types of vinegar :s

Mask Ingredients
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp green tea
1 tsp honey
7 tsp sugar

Method
1. Add in apple cider vinegar, green tea and 5 tsp of sugar in a bowl. Mix well.
2. Add in honey, mix well.
3. Lastly add in the remaining 2 tsp sugar and stir well.
4. Put the mixture in a glass jar and keep it in the fridge.

Note: 1 part of apple cider vinegar, 2 parts of green tea.

The final product came out to be a very thick mixture. After keeping it in the fridge for half an hour, somehow the mixture separated into two layers. The bottom layer has a thicker consistency, while the top layer is more fluid. I am not too sure why is it like that. Probably I didn't add enough green tea and the mixture turned out to be very thick. Make sure the mask is fluid so that you can apply it on your face and massage it on. Otherwise like me, the mask contains too much sugar and ended up massaging sugar onto the face. You should apply the mask on the face, massage it with your fingers for 2-5 minutes and leave it for another 10 minutes. After that rinse it off with water. Before applying the mask make sure your face is clean. Your skin should feel smoother and brighter after the using the mask. Not sure about the brighter part, but it did make the skin smoother. Since this is all natural ingredients, it is safe for the skin.



Besides the mask, you can use the same ingredients to make the Acne Scar Reducing Toner.

Toner Ingredients
1 part apple cider vinegar
2 part green tea

Method
1. Prepare a clean glass jar. Add in 1/3 of apple cider vinegar.
2. Add in 2/3 of green tea. If you may add in a bit of lemon juice (optional).
3. Close the jar and shake well. Keep it in the fridge.

Thanks to Bubby for sharing this natural mask and toner.

Omg so sorry for the late reply. Didn't receive any email notification that there are comments here.

Anonymous, I've tried keeping it in the fridge but it gets harden :( If the mixture that you made can stays in liquid form, it can last for at a week or two I guess. Since sugar is some sort of natural preservative.

PeiSeahh, Yes you can use natural honey. In fact it is better :)
