Natural Acne Remedies – Seven Acne Home Remedies You Can’t Be Without

Here are seven acne home remedies you can’t be without.

1. Soap and water.

For acne vulgaris, also known as common acne, the usually unspoken truth is that soap and water are just for daily cleansing. The lowest-cost options are Dove for dry skin and Ivory for oily skin.

Just be sure that you apply a soapy lather, not the bar of soap itself, directly to your skin. Then rinse your face with warm water. Simply keeping soap film out of pores can enable you to use lower-cost products.

2. Fresh, whole milk.

The ancient Egyptian queen Cleopatra was renowned for her beauty, which she maintained by taking baths in milk.

We don’t suggest that you fill your bathtub with milk and take a soak. In fact, just a couple of tablespoons (15-30 ml) are more than enough.

Soak a clean cloth in fresh whole milk. Apply it to your face for 15 to 30 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. The lactic acid in the milk is the gentlest natural skin peel.

Exfoliating your face with milk costs just pennies per application, and it can keep dead skin from building up around the edges of pores and trapping oil inside.

3. Honey, preferably Manuka honey.

You can also do a honey facial. Apply a teaspoon (5 g) of honey in an even layer all over your face, and allow it to dry. The honey kills the staph bacteria that cause big red pimples with yellow centers.

Nearly 200 scientific studies confirm the use of honey as an antiseptic for the skin.

4. Baking soda.

You can correct mistakes you make with exfoliants and toners with baking soda. If you put on a product and it stings, chances are it’s just too acidic for your skin. You should rinse off that product right away, but you can stop any damage by then applying a thin paste of baking soda.

Make a slurry of baking soda by combining a tablespoon (15 g) of baking soda with a tablespoon (15 ml) of water. Spread evenly over your face and keep it on for at least 5 minutes. Then rinse off with warm water.

5. Your humidifier or vaporizer.

Moisture in the air helps keep your skin from drying out. And when your skin is moist, it is soft and flexible. This keeps pores open so whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and cysts never get a chance to form.

6. Moisturizers.

It’s a myth that drying out your skin will cure acne.

In fact, drying out your skin, especially if you have fair or allergy-prone skin, always makes acne worse. Any kind of moisturizer will help keep pores open. Just be sure you use a moisturizer that does not contain oil (labeled as a “humectant”) if you have oily skin.

7. Tea tree oil.

Along with honey, tea tree oil creams are essential natural antiseptics for keeping skin acne-free. Tea tree oil kills just as many acne bacteria as the more widely used and more expensive benzoyl peroxide, but it also stops inflammation, irritation, and redness.
