Create a simple homemade strawberry facial mask to eliminate blackheads. Combine 1/4 cup fresh strawberries and 1/4 cup plain yogurt or sour cream. Place the mixture into a blender, and blend it into a paste. Alternatively, mash the ingredients together with a fork. Apply the strawberry paste to the face, avoiding the eye area, and leave it on for up to 10 minutes before rinsing it off with water.
The aspirin mask is an unusual, yet effective, homemade acne treatment. Crush three to six aspirin using the bottom of a coffee cup or a rolling pin. In a shallow dish, combine the crushed aspirin, the juice from one lemon and a tablespoon of warm honey. Let the aspirin dissolve into a paste. Apply the mask to blackheads or to the entire face. Let the mask dry. Remove the mask with a wet washcloth dipped in baking soda. Olive or coconut oil can be substituted for the honey.
Make a banana mask by mashing up one ripe banana in a bowl. Mix in two tablespoons of honey and several drops of juice from a fresh lemon or orange. Apply, and allow it to sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with a cool or warm washcloth.
