Dealing with acne the natural way may be your best bet because you can be sure that you are getting its treatment properties without the disadvantages of chemicals. One of the most common remedy for acne and hyper-pigmentation is the use of lemon, milk and turmeric. Here is what you need to prepare a treatment mask for acne and hyper-pigmentation;

- 2 table spoons of Turmeric: You need to be careful when using turmeric because it has the tendency to stain.
- Half a lemon: Slice a lemon in two, and squeeze half of the lemon juice into the bowl of turmeric. The other half can be used to prepare lemon water (A warm glass of water+ a slice of lemon squeezed into the water). Lemon water is very beneficial if taken every morning after you wake-up from sleep.
- 1/2 glass of milk: The lactic acid in milk acts as a mild exfoliant.
- A table spoon of flour.
