Homemade Acne Remedies

Do you find yourself suffering from acne, but you don’t want to spend a lot of money on potentially harmful and risky chemical treatments? I can understand you very well. I myself am no friend of aggressive prescription treatments or using antibiotics to treat acne, when there are natural methods to get the clear skin again.

Here we’re going to talk about several different homemade acne remedies, which can help you to reduce and get rid of your acne in a holistic and healthy way.

Oatmeal acne face mask

This is a very popular choice when it comes to removing excess of oil from your skin. The way it works is pretty simple. You simply make a thick paste, by mixing oatmeal and water. Or you take uncooked oats and throw them into a blender so that they end up as a fine powder. Then you apply the paste on your skin, like a face mask. Leave it there for 10 to 20 minutes, and then wash it off with cool water. The coolness helps to contract your skin pores after the face mask again. It’s best to do this one time in the morning, and one time in the night before you go to bed.

If you want to get a little bit fancier and have more of a spa experience, you can add a little bit of dried chamomile or lavender into your oatmeal paste if you want.

Toothpaste To Dry Pimples Out

Toothpaste is another popular homemade acne remedy. When you have additional, simply put the toothpaste on the pimple and leave it there for about two hours. This can help to dry out the pimple. However, specially if you have sensitive skin, this might not be the best solution, because some people can get red skin or even an itching of burning rash.

Apple & Honey Face Mask

You can also make a face mask of honey and apples. This is one of my personal favorites. Simply create an apple, add some honey to it, about four tablespoons, mix it together and then put it on your face for about 15 minutes. Honey is very beneficial for your skin and has many healing properties. Afterwards you can just rinse it off with warm water.

Tea Tree Oil

Another thing that works well for many people is tea tree oil. Simply mix it with water, should be about 95% water and only 5% tea tree oil, and apply it on the affected areas of your skin. Studies have shown that it works about as effective as benzoyl peroxide, but it doesn’t have negative side effects that often come with benzoyl peroxide like dryness, skin that peels off or starts to¬† flake.

Lemon Juice

Another thing that works really well for many people is squeezing a couple of lemons, and then spreading the lemon juice over your skin. The citric acid helps to kill bacteria and remove excess oil from the skin. Vitamin C that is contained in the lines, is also beneficial in many other regards for your skin. I know some celebrity makeup artists who use lemon juice every day as part of their skin hygiene. Keep in mind that these are people who regularly spend hundreds of dollars on little bottles of cosmetics or acne treatments, and if these people swear on lemon juice, then I trust their judgment. Especially since I have seen it work for many people to.
