There's nothing more annoying than a pimple suddenly appearing on your face overnight, especially when you know you've been consistent with your skincare routine. You may choose to heal it using your typical acne-fighting products, but if you prefer going the natural route, a DIY face mask is your best bet.

Below, we put together three of the best DIY face mask recipes and tutorials for acne-prone skin sans the harsh ingredients (*cough* lemon juice and baking soda *cough*). Keep on scrolling for your next go-to concoction:

  1. Cinnamon and egg mask

    Ingredients:

    - One egg

    - Two tablespoons of cinnamon

    This recipe only calls for two ingredients: Cinnamon and an egg. Just mix these in a bowl until you get a paste-like consistency. Spread it all over your face, and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water. This particular concoction is great if you want to dry out your pimples, unclog your pores, and remove excess oil.
