Types of face masks for sensitive skin, for dry skin, for oily skin. These help to remove acne marks and ensure that you get a smooth skin. Valid for men, too.

White Vinegar Mask

Distilled white vinegar can be used on face. If you have sensitive skin, you may find vinegar to be too strong.

You can dilute the vinegar in some water or you could add cumin powder and then gradually strengthen the concentration to the desired level.

Note that the solution should burn and sting a little.

Before going to bed at night, gently wash your face with a mild face wash and rinse well.

Next, with a cotton ball apply the vinegar to your face. Leave it on for 5-10 minutes and then rinse with cool water.

You may not notice the result for first seven days. In fact, your condition may become more worse.

Give it time, allow it two to three weeks, before determining the effectiveness of the treatment.

Numerous individuals have reported amazing results from this treatment.

Exercise is good for your overall health.

Just make sure that you wash your face thoroughly after an intense exercise session to remove oil or sweat from your skin that may harbour bacteria, resulting in more acne.
