How to make acne face pack?

Mix the following ingredients in a dry, air-tight container

Step 1: Put base ingredients

Every skin has a unique requirement to balance the oil secretion. Therefore, we will use different base ingredients for each skin type, as discussed below:

  • For oily skin: Put 5 spoons each of Multanin mitti (or fuller’s earth)  and  besan (or chickpea flour)
  • For combination skin: Put 5 spoons each of besan (or chickpea flour) and grounded oats
  • For dry skin: Put 5 spoons each of milk and grounded oats

Step 2: Put active ingredients 

While base ingredients differ, following active ingredients are used for every skin type:

  • half a spoon of turmeric powder
  • quarter spoon of cinnamon powder
  • half spoon Licorice
  • half a spoon of neem powder

You can store the above mixture in an airtight container for 1-3 months. The only precaution is that water should not get inside it.

Step 3: Add liquid ingredients 

When you wish to apply this face pack, all you need to do is take two tablespoons of the above mixture and add the following liquid ingredients:

  • 1/4 spoon of raw honey
  • 5 drops of tea- tree oil
  • Rose water to make a thick paste

How to use it?

  • Scrub your skin with this brown sugar scrub
  • Pat dry with a clean, soft cloth.

  • Let it dry. Leave it untouched for 15 minutes or so.
  • Once it is dry, splash a generous amount of water on your face to make the mask soft.
  • Gently scrub your face by removing the face pack in circular, outward motions to aid the removal of dead skin cells.
  • Rinse off the leftover face pack and pat dry.
  • You can use this face mask once or twice a week.


What are the side effects?

This anti-acne face pack has many potent ingredients which could irritate, as is common for sensitive skin. Thus, always perform the patch test before the first use.

How to store?

You can store the dry ingredients for 1-3 months.

Why these ingredients?

We have used the following ingredients that have studies to show some anti-acne action:

  • Clay or fuller earth or Multani mitti causes a sustained decrease in oil secretion and absorbs sebum from the face when applied for a long time.
  • Turmeric has anti-oxidant, wound healing, and anti-inflammatory benefits.
  • Tea tree oil has been shown to inhibit acne in various studies, and it is as effective as benzoyl peroxide in treating acne. It inhibits P. acne without affecting normal skin flora, besides being anti-inflammatory. It can cause redness, dryness, and irritation, especially in sensitive skin. It should not be used in pregnancy and lactation.
  • Cinnamon, when used in combination with honey, can reduce acne.
  • Glycyrrhiza glabra, Licorice, or mulethi extracts have antibacterial activity besides skin-lightening effects. Licorice reduces acne due to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties, besides reducing androgen levels. But should be avoided even in a small amount in patients with hypertension and heart and kidney problems.
  • Rose water can even help in reducing comedones or black/whiteheads.
  • Raw honey, when applied directly on red pimples, can help in reduction owing to anti-inflammatory benefits.
  • Gram flour or besan helps by absorbing extra oils in oily skin types.

The unique thing about this face pack is that we have customized the base ingredients to match your skin type:

  • Dry skin: Oats and milk are used to nourish and hydrate.
  • Combination skin: Chickpea flour and oats help in balancing oil secretions.
  • Oily skin: Multani mitti and besan remove excess oils of greasy skin.
