If your acne is causing your grief, and you really prefer not to use harsh chemicals or prescription treatments, consider using some home remedies to help clear up your problem areas so that you have acne no more. These are all things that you can easily find in your home- or if not, a quick trip to the local grocery store can help!
Baking Soda: this product is great for a variety of home uses, even cleaning skin! It works to eliminate your breakouts and reduce inflammation- as well as removing your dead skin cells. Just take a few teaspoons and mix it with warm water to create a paste. Apply to skin, leaving on for about 10 to 15 minutes at first. After one use, you’ll see a major improvement.
Apple Cider Vinegar: this product has both antifungal and antibacterial properties and is very powerful. Starting out, use a few teaspoons in with 1/4 to 1/2 cup water.
Coconut Oil: this product also has antifungal and antibacterial properties and also is moisturizing and gentle on your skin. It helps to reduce redness and fights off the bacteria in your skin. Simply apply and massage into your skin. You’ll never reach for another OTC moisturizer again!
Tea Tree Oil: this is a very powerful natural acne remedy. Mix a small amount, about 5-10 drops, in with 1/4 cup water. Dip a cotton ball in the mixture and apply to skin. You can apply it before putting on your makeup- or you can apply it several times throughout the day.
Lemon Juice: you can use bottled lemon juice or fresh squeezed juice. Lemons contain natural astringent and antibacterial properties that will help to clear up your problem areas. Simply apply, undiluted, and leave on for 15 mins to one hour.
These natural remedies are great for treating acne and you can use them alone or in conjunction with each other. By doing this, you can naturally help your body have acne no more.
