10 Best Home Remedies For Acne
1.Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a great toner and is a wonderful way to refresh your skin throughout the day. If you are looking for a healthier alternative to the toner you were using before, apple cider vinegar mixed with water can actually help to tone the skin. Mix one part apple cider vinegar to three parts water and apply it directly to your skin. Wait a few minutes and then rinse off with water – I would say maybe fifteen to twenty minutes or so and rinse off with water.
Apple cider vinegar has more health benefits like removal of bad breath, thickening of hair and more
Baking Soda is really great. A lot of people currently use baking soda as part of their daily skin regimen or weekly skin regimen now. Mix one teaspoon of baking soda with one tablespoon of water,and apply that to the affected acne prone or acne area that you have. Let that set on the skin and allow that to dry and once that is dry you can remove with warm water.
Citrus Fruits are absolutely wonderful. This is the third natural acne remedy that you can try with your lemons. Take half of a lime or half of a lemon – take the juice of that – and use a Q-tip or a cotton ball to apply it directly to the skin.Wait for it to dry and once it dries, rinse off with warm water. The reason why citrus fruits are so great is because they have tons of antibacterial properties so they are killing all the bacteria that is stuck within your clogged pores and can help rid them of the bacteria.
Another major anti-bacterial product that you could potentially have in your cupboards right now is honey. Honey is excellent at killing bacteria. What you can do is rinse your face with warm water and while your face is still wet, take the honey and apply it directly to the acne-affected area and leave on for about fifteen to twenty minutes and then rinse off. Pat your face dry.
Coconut oil is wonderful. Coconut oil not only has the anti-bacterial properties but also the anti-fungal properties. It is a great substitute for removing makeup. It acts as a moisturizer.If you are struggling with finding a moisturizer that has those antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, give coconut oil a try; it is excellent to use in the evenings.
The sixth one is actually two different products but I am going to call it one product because I feel like it is just one; it comes from the same plant and, it is, Aloe-vera. You can either use the gel or the juice. There are many ways to use them.You can either take the gel or the juice and apply it with a cotton ball directly to the acne-affected area and leave on for fifteen to twenty minutes. Some people actually leave the gel on their face as a moisturizer. It is anti-fungal, it is great with scars,and it is wonderful.
Bentonite clay is another one of those antibacterial products that works to shrink your pores, tighten your pores, tighten your face, and tighten any part of your body with repeated use. It helps to stimulate those cells and helps in removing dead skin cells, as well. Do exactly what the product says, which is mix equal parts of the clay with either water or apple cider vinegar and apply it directly to the affected area. Leave on for fifteen to twenty minutes or until your skin feels tight and the product has dried and you are feeling that tingly feeling and rinse off with warm water.
This is great for scars as well, this is great for existing blemishes; this is just a really wonderful product to use. Another thing is bentonite clay can be applied all over or it can be used as spot treatment; depending on what you are looking for and what you need, you can determine how much to actually use.
Turmeric is antibacterial,as well, and can help fade acne scars. Mix one part turmeric to two parts natural yogurt and apply it to your skin. You are going to remove it after fifteen minutes with warm water. Turmeric is one of those natural products you can find in most health food stores or grocery stores. The only caveat is turmeric can stain your skin and your clothing so be really careful.
Green tea– Boil the water, place the water in the cup.Steep a green tea bag within that boiled water for several minutes. Then take the bag out and allow it to cool. Open the bag and remove the leaves. Mash the leaves with honey – about a tablespoon of honey – and create this paste. You are going to apply this green tea honey paste over the affected areas and leave on for twenty to thirty minutes and then rinse off with warm water.
You are essentially making yourself this mask that has not only the antibacterial effects from the green tea but also the antibacterial effects from the honey. Green tea is wonderful.If you have it in your cabinet and you have honey in your cabinet, this is probably something you can do relatively quickly.
The very last natural product that I have for you that helps with removing acne scars is yogurt. If you have this in your refrigerator today, kudos to you. This is plain organic natural yogurt that you want to use. It has those anti-bacterial products that almost all these other products I mentioned have and it works to restore the pH of your skin.
You can apply this to your face, to your neck, to your booty, to your back, to your chest, to your stomach, whatever the case may be, the skin’s pH is going to be restored once you use this product. Apply It to the affected area evenly and you are going to leave it on for about ten to fifteen minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. Pretty straight-forward. Yogurt has that lactic acid property and that is great for speeding up that process of exfoliating your skin and removing dead skin cells which is something that is really important when it comes to acne and preventing breakouts.
