PIMPLE TREATMENT FACE MASK

pimple treatment face mask

Hello, my gorgeous friends! How are you all?

Today we are going to talk about a face mask and I am sure you will love it. Before we even start talking about the face mask,let me share a small story with you guys,please don’t worry, its short.

So what happened is, one day I was preparing chicken curry and for that, I was making a paste out of a few ingredients. Then suddenly I thought about the ingredients I have used, they are so good for your skin, then this thought struck me why not make an amazing face mask out of these ingredients. And  there were two big red pimples on my face. So what did I do, I cleaned my hands and face (very important) and applied this paste on one of the pimples. And later that day, I noticed my pimple actually shrunk and is not painful anymore. Eureka!

After a few days, I tried this mask on my face, and I really loved it. Now let”s jump into the ingredient list . Also, don’t forget to check out the benefits of each ingredient on your skin, which I will be writing at the end of this post.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tomato
  • 1 garlic glove (you can add two if you are okay with the sting)
  • 1/2 tbsp of chopped ginger
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves

How to prepare the mask

Nothing much, just take all the above-mentioned ingredients in a blender, blend it to form a paste.

How to apply the pimple treatment face mask

When you have spotted those nasty pimples rather than panicking about them, just make this face mask and apply a thin layer on that particular pimple, leave it on for some 10-20 minutes and then rinse it off. This mask is not only great for spot treatment, you can use it all over face and it gives amazing results. But as with any DIY or any kind of face masks, do a patch test. Slight stinging is alright as we have used garlic.

Benefits of the ingredients on skin

Garlic

Garlic as such can be used for spot treatment as it contains sulphur, which helps to prevent infections and reduce inflammations and also contains Allicin, which has anti-fungal, anti-aging and skin smoothing benefits. But if you are like me who can’t stand the stinging sensation of garlic, then you need to try something like this face mask. We use garlic because garlic

  • Help to get rid of stubborn acne.
  • Helps in removing blackheads.
  • Has anti-aging properties.
  • Helps to minimise pores.

Ginger

We have used ginger because it

  • Helps in treating blemishes and acne.
  • Has anti-aging benefits.
  • Helps in skin toning.
  • Gives radiant skin.

Coriander leaves

Coriander is great because it:

  • Acts as a natural antiseptic and anti-fungal agent.
  • Treatment of blackheads and acne.
  • Absorbs excess oil from your face.
  • Has anti-aging benefits.

Tomato

  • Perfect astringent.
  • Treats open pores.
  • Prevents signs of ageing.
  • Natural bleaching agent.
  • Remove dead skin cells and gives smooth and glowing skin.

One tip

One tip for better results is to pour this face mask into an icetray and freeze it. Once set take the ice cubes place it on the pimple/zits for a few seconds. Later rinse your face. You can also massage your entire using an ice cube, leave it for some 15 minutes and then rinse it off.

So that was one amazing face mask for pimple treatment. Let me know if you try it!

My review of the No 7 beautiful skin deep pore purifier

thebeautymascot/no7 beautiful skin deep pore purifier

Before even starting to talk about my experience with the No7 beautiful skin deep pore purifier, let me clarify one thing. I have already mentioned it exfoliates, but this is not your regular exfoliator. This one is for deep cleaning your pores. If you do not have much pronounced pores or blackheads, this one step can be skipped.

My previous post Collagen boosting homemade facemask which is a facemask  tighten the pores. I have also reviewed the ceramide collagen face mask from the face shop just recently. Both of these masks helps to tighten your pores, but there is no point of closing a pore when there is dirt or gunk inside it. So first step before tightening pores is removing the dirt from  clogged pores and this product has helped me a lot in it.

This deep pore purifier comes in a tube, which contains the main product which is a gel and at one end is a round applicator with bristles. I found the packaging quite intriguing and that’s the reason why I bought this product in the first place. The bristles/nodules are made of rubber, soft but not very soft. The nodules are firm enough to damage your skin (especially if you have sensitive skin) if pressed too hard, so remember to be gentle.

You can turn the applicator of the tube to ON and OFF positions to get the product out. ON and OFF are clearly marked on the tube(anti clockwise ON and clockwise OFF). The gel comes out only if it is in ON position, which is great! You can give one point there itself as there is  absolutely no product leakage or wastage. One other advantage of this kind of design is that no used product goes back inside the tube.

To use is very simple. What you have to do is turn the applicator to ON position, squeeze a small amount of the product into the applicator. Now dampen your face and gently massage the product into your skin using the bristles in circular motions concentrating on areas where you have clogged pores. This is meant to be used on your forehead, chin and nose. It will lather up quite well. By saying that I don’t mean it creates a lot of foam, which it doesn’t; just a little foam and that is all you need. Wash your face with warm water once you are done. After this ensure the pack is turned to OFF position. You just need a small amount of the gel hence the product is going to last long. I have been using this one for a month now and I can go at least one more month without repurchasing. A slight relief to Mr. husband 😛

The gel contained inside the tube has no color, but has a really good scent. The smell is not so dominant , very faint smell in fact, but nice and sweet. I really like the smell. The applicator has the perfect size and shape. It is really easy to use , covers a good area and gets in to all areas well. Easy to use even around the nose. It is also really easy to clean the applicator. Remember to clean the applicator with water and towel dry after every use.

Coming to the results, my skin feels squeaky clean after every use. You really get the feeling of a deep cleanse. And it really does help in unclogging pores, leaving it clean and far less pronounced. But remember, this deep cleanser does not give cent percent results just after first use. After first use my skin definitely felt clean and smooth but the real results started to show after about 3 uses. I use this product once every week, but it can be used twice a week according to the brand which I guess is ok. I like using this product at night as I do with any exfoliation.

Don’t be fooled, this is not a 100 percent perfect one. I have found some negative points too. Firstly, my skin turns slightly red after using this product which goes away after a few minutes. So I’m not sure if it will be a great one for sensitive skin. Secondly, I couldn’t find an ingredient list. I really would love to know what ingredients are used in the cleansing gel. Apart from this, I really love the product and love the results.
