Hello girlss.. Hope you all are doing well. After review of stay quirky lip balm, today I’m going to share some face masks to treat acne and pimples. If you are a regular reader of my blog then you will know that I have super oily skin which is prone to acne. I get pimples every now and then and after years of struggling with medicated products and DIY, now my skin is acne free. Now a days I get pimples very rarely and I’m happy with my skin now. All you need is patience and good skin care routine to get rid of acne. You should also maintain a good diet to keep your skin healthy from inside. In this post am going to share face masks that I use to treat acne. These face masks are not spot treatments to remove acne overnight but these masks helps to heal them faster without leaving any scars. These masks also helps you to prevent any future break outs.
