Save Tons of Money with This DIY Face Mask That Gets Rid of Acne ...

If you hate your acne, there's a face mask that you should be applying to your skin once a week. You don't have to head out to the store to buy one, because Glamour has instructions on how to make one with items in your fridge. Interested? Then listen up:

** Here are the ingredients you're going to need: **
-1/4 cup of papaya.
-5 dark concord grapes.
-1 teaspoon fresh lime juice.
-3 teaspoons of plain Greek yogurt.
-1/4 cup of warmed raw honey.
-1/2 teaspoon turmeric.

Once you have all of your ingredients together, you should warm the honey for a few seconds and then toss it in a blender with the fresh papaya, Greek yogurt, lime juice, grapes and turmeric. Blend it until it's smooth, and then apply a thin layer to your face. Keep it on you for 10 minutes, and then you can remove it with warm water on a wet washcloth. Make sure to move the towel in a circular motion to get rid of all of those pesky dead skin cells.

Get those ingredients together and get to work! What other face masks have you used in the past?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Turmeric can be good, but it can also cause micro tears if used incorrectly, which unless you are a professional, you will use it incorrectly. Lime/lemon/orange juice can cause tons of issues, including phototoxic reactions even if you wear sunblock and stay in the shade, and they are very painful and close to chemical burns. Taylor is absolutely correct. A lot of these ingredients are not safe for at home use and the writer has clearly done no research, (especially since this is copied and pasted) despite every article having comments telling her it's dangerous. Please don't use this mask, your face will thank you.

Shivani, I haven't done my research over turmeric so I don't have a comment on that but she's completely right about lime juice. It's not good even if you moderate it, there's absolutely no benefits of it.

Are you kidding me!! Lime juice?! That's just as bad as lemon juice. Did you just copy and paste this from Pinterest without thinking. I blame you guys when somebody ends up with chemical burns. I got rid of my acne from lowering stress, using moisturizer, and a BHA/AHA

@helen thank you! I would love to, just to educate some of these writers, but my life is quite hectic to be a writer, especially one that doesn't make tons money off it, and my writing is not that great. It would be very rambly and spastic amounts of information lol. I've often thought of it but can never get anything worth posting, it takes me forever to be happy with anything I write for the public rather than just comments, and it would definitely not be well written lol. I was never good at writing nonfiction essays in school. Maybe sometime soon I'll work on something and just not post it till I have it all perfected lol. But thank you

Taylor you are way too judgemental with these comments. Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and I use it as a mask weekly without feeling dry at all. Lime juice is a natural brightener. Use these with caution, as they are only good in moderation.


Well, in the meantime we appreciate your comments. It's helpful to have someone point out the errors. Will never put lemon juice on my face again thanks to you!

These ingredients are very dangerous, be ware, they can worsen Rosacea, and we all know that Rosacea usually related to acne. In general they are not sensitive skin friendly at all.

And turmeric? Even better. I love it when my skin is dried out and raw. Who writes this stuff???

I hate to tell you this but with that ingredient list I'm still going to have to go to the store.
