How to Make a Face Mask That Treats Pimples


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

  • Pot
  • Water
  • Towel
  • 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.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you don't have time to do the above, place a washcloth in hot water and then hold to your face for a few seconds (try up to 1 minute).
  • Careful! Don't touch the pot as it'll be hot. Just hold your face over the pot to let the steam do its job.
  • The steam tends to get pretty hot as well so you may have to step away from it for a couple of seconds and then put your face back in.
