    Anti-acne face mask

    Prepare a paste of raspberry, strawberry or blackberry mixed with 1.5 litres of water and apply it on affected areas of the face or the entire face if the acne is severe. Let the paste stay for 3 minutes and wash it off with clean water. This face mask ensures that the skin is itch-free and smooth.

    Exfoliate with yoghurt and oatmeal

    Exfoliating the skin, like scrubbing, ensures that the skin does not have any blocked areas because of build-up of dead and dull cells of the skin. One of the best exfoliators is oatmeal, which is also used popularly by beauty industries in their exfoliating products. To make an exfoliator at home, mix a few spoons of oatmeal powder with yoghurt and apply it on the face. Wait for the mixture to dry. Once done, pat the skin dry and finish by applying an antibiotic lotion.
