10 Super Effective Homemade Mud Face Mask Recipes For Acne


Homemade mud face masks are quite popular among people with oily acne-prone skin. As the name suggests, these masks look like ‘mud’ as the main ingredient used in these is ‘clay’ (fuller’s earth, bentonite clay, white clay, red clay, black clay, pink clay, green clay, kaolin clay, etc.).  We have sorted 5 super effective acne-fighting mud mask for you that you can make at home easily:


  1. Fuller’s Earth And Neem Powder Mask

The most easily available ingredient for preparing a mud face mask is fuller’s earth or multani mitti. It itself is a great natural skincare product for oily acne-prone skin.  TO make the mask even more powerful, we have added neem powder to it. This will increase the antibacterial property of the mask and give you a clean acne-free skin easily.

Ingredients:

  • Fuller’s Earth – 1 teaspoon
  • Fresh cucumber juice – 1 teaspoon
  • Neem powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Rose water – 2 teaspoons

Preparation:

Put the fuller’s earth in a small mixing bowl and add neem powder to it. Pour fresh cucumber juice into it. Also, add the rose water. Mix all the ingredients well. The consistency of the mixture will be neither too thick nor too runny. If you need to adjust the consistency, increase or decrease the quantity of rose water accordingly. Once the mask is ready, spread it all over your face and neck evenly. Wait until it dries completely. After that, wash off with tepid water. For excellent results, use this mask 3-4 days a week.
