Make your own acne heat mask in this simple recipe.
What you need
Vitamin E oil
Crumbled sage leaves
Vitamin E cream
Any acne treatment lotion you may have on hand.
Take a small dish towel or washcloth
Sprinkle the optional ingredients on top, or fold them into the towel.
Microwave towel for 35-55 seconds.
Remove from microwave (see warnings).
Drape over the face, and using both hands, hold it onto your downturned face until the heat begins to escape.
Your pores should be open now. Look into a mirror, and if you see hundreds of tiny specks covering your face your pores have been successfully opened.
If you do not see open pores, then saturate the towel again, and microwave for a longer time period and repeat the above steps
Use an antibacterial facial soap
Close your pores by gently dabbing your face with a cold washcloth.
Refrain from touching your face for 2-3 minutes to allow the foreign additives to settle, and the pores to close entirely.
Apply your favourite moisturizer.
