If you follow the latest tips about beauty and makeup, onion may be the last thing you would consider applying to your skin. But acne sufferers from all over the world swear that a homemade onion face mask can help. The facial masks that you purchase from the stores are great but they are crammed with chemicals.

What do I need to make up an onion face mask?

- A few sprigs of parsley
- A spoonful of honey
- A little distilled water

How do I mix these ingredients to make up an onion facial mask?
- Put the chopped onion, parsley sprigs, honey and distilled water into the blender jug
- Pulse the ingredients until they come together to form a paste
- Put the blended ingredients into a pot and place it into the refrigerator to chill overnight

So why is this onion mask so good for people who suffer from acne breakouts?
- Onions are rich in sulphur and this helps to combat acne.
Is there any reason why this onion mask can’t be used as soon as it is made?
Yes. The paste should be chilled to dull the fumes given off by the onion. Apply the blend immediately and it will sting your eyes.
- Take the chilled paste out of the fridge; mix in the Kaolin clay and it is ready to apply. The onion facial mask is really good for oily or combination skin that has blemishes.
- Apply the mask as you would any other (avoid the area around the eyes) and leave the paste on your skin for twenty minutes.
