There are many different face masks out there for oily/blemish-prone skin so a lot of the time it'll be trial and error to find one that works for you. There are many different variations of tried and true recipes for treating oily skin and blemishes. Here's how to make an oatmeal tomato face mask for pimples.
Things You'll Need
- 1 ripe tomato, chopped
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- 1 T. instant oatmeal or old-fashioned rolled oats
Prior to applying a mask steam your face. This will open your pores and help the mask clean them out.
Boil a pot of water and then let it sit for a couple of seconds.
Hang a towel around your head.
Place your head over the top of the pot (into the steam). Keep it there for about 5 minutes.
Blend the ingredients together in a blender (low speed).
Apply it to your face making sure the mixture is thick enough to stay on the problem areas. If need be, add a bit more oatmeal to thicken the mask.
Leave the mask on for 10 to 15 minutes.
Wash off with a clean washcloth using warm water.
