A DIY cucumber and clay mask that will remedy fall breakouts

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...

If you're "blessed" with acne-prone but sensitive skin, this mask should be right up your alley. Clay is incredibly useful for fighting acne and overly oily skin because it soaks up excess sebum without overdrying your skin. A dash of honey provides natural antibacterial properties, and adding a little bit of cucumber will create a calming, soothing effect. We recommend using this mask once a week after cleansing and exfoliating. Here's what you'll need:

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup green clay
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • A fruit/vegetable juicer (optional)

Steps:
  1. Cut the cucumber in half, width-wise. Cut two thin slices (you'll use these later). Then, juice the cucumber with your juicer. If you don't have a juicer, just pour some cool tap water into a bowl, then slice the remaining cucumber and let them sit in the water for about 15 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, use a fork to mix the cucumber juice and honey with the clay until you have a thick paste. You can add more juice or water to get the consistency the way you like it.
  3. Apply the paste to your face and place the remaining two cucumber slices over your eyes. Then go rest and relax! When you remove the mask after 10 minutes or so, you'll see clearer, smoother, calmer skin.
