When the mask is completely dried, rinse it with the help of warm water. It is to be noted that people who have sensitive skin should avoid a sulfur face mask.
Clay Mask- You may use bentonite calcium clay or green clay for preparing a face mask for your skin. It is an efficient ingredient to deal with the problem of acne as it is rich in antibacterial properties. Also it helps in removing excess of oil or sebum, from the pores of skin. At the same time, clay also proves to be an efficient exfoliant for the skin. It also paces up the problem of healing of injuries on the skin. You may prepare a clay mask by mixing clay with warm water. Apply it on your skin and keep it there for around 15 minutes. Although you may feel a tingling sensation on the skin however it is due to removal of toxins from the skin by the clay. You may start rinsing the mask till it is somewhat damp. Take care not to let it dry completely as it may lead to dryness in the skin as well. You may make the mask wet again by patting with wet hands followed by massaging and rinsing with warm water.
Oatmeal and Yogurt Mask- It is rather an easy remedy for acne as both oatmeal and yogurt are easily available at our homes. It is the best face mask for sensitive skin. Yogurt helps in bleaching the skin. At the same time, it is rich in zinc which helps in reducing scars and spots from the skin.
