Moms! I often find my face dehydrated and dull especially in the Fall and Winter months. This dryness can lead to redness or irritation. I apply a moisturizer and within minutes my face has sucked it all in which leads to me applying another layer! I recently made this DIY Face Mask For Acne And Soothing Redness that cleanses, soothes any inflammation, and hydrates your face to leave it fresh and bright as well. Now who doesn’t want that combo, right? The best thing about this at-home face mask is that it’s very easy to make and smells delicious too. It’s made with all natural ingredients so no worries about harsh chemical ingredients irritating your face.
A bit about the DIY Face Mask For Acne ingredients-
Aloe vera gel forms the basis of this DIY Face Mask for acne because it has so many healing properties. Aloe vera is great for those with acne because it contains healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation and allow the skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring. The essential oils in this recipe were chosen for their antiseptic and healing properties. Palmarosa essential oil has antiseptic, bactericidal properties that make it a great addition as well. According to Dr. Axe, “Frankincense essential oil is a powerful astringent, meaning it helps protect skin cells. It can be used to help reduce acne blemishes, the appearance of large pores, prevent wrinkles, and it even helps lift and tighten skin to naturally slow signs of aging.”

How To Make A DIY Face Mask For Acne
Ingredients/Supplies needed for your face mask:
- Small Glass Bowl
- Organic Aloe Vera Gel
- Young Living Palmarosa, Melrose and Frankincense essential oils
- 1/2 TBSP Measuring Spoon
Instructions on how to make your DIY Face Mask For Acne:
Grab your supplies and head to the kitchen counter. Start by measuring out 1/2 TBSP of aloe vera gel. Next, add your essential oils. Add 2 drops of Palmarosa, 2 drops of Melrose and 1 drop of Frankincense. Your mask is ready to use! Instead of stirring everything together with a spoon, I just take a finger (a clean finger!) and mix everything together that way. I do that so none of the oils will stick to the spoon!
You want to apply a generous layer onto face. Make sure to avoid eyes and mouth. Once you have applied your gel face mask, sit back and relax. Leave on for 10-15 minutes then gently wipe off mask with a warm cloth. Follow with your daily moisturizer if doing mask in the morning or apply your evening moisturizer afterwards if doing the mask at night. You may feel a little tingling and that’s normal! Recommended use is once per week.
Palmarosa essential oil is very hydrating and is a wonderful oil for your face. It also stimulates new cell growth and regulates oil production. Melrose essential oil helps with tissue regeneration and Frankincense essential oil is very soothing and healing oil.
Does this sound like a face mask you would try out?
