Home Remedies for Acne

Home Remedies for the battle of the ZITS;)

Everyone past puberty has had a nasty dot on their face one time or another. Below are a list of habits and remedies anyone can use to battle that ugly sucker once and for all.

(1) Eat healthy,
(2) exercise regularly,
(3) don’t sleep on your face,
(4) get enough sleep,
(5)wash your hands regularly,
(6) manage your stress, and
(7) use your home remedy for acne on a consistent basis.


1) Tea Tree Oil

  1.  Pure tea tree oil is very strong and may cause an allergic reaction if placed directly on the skin; so you may need to dilute it depending on your skin type. For example, if you have oily skin, take a tablespoon of tea tree oil and mix it with 9 tablespoons of water. If your skin is a little sensitive mix the tea tree oil with aloe vera gel instead of water. The gel will neutralize the chemical reactions to make sure you do not develop rashes.
  2. Before you use the tea tree solution, wash your face with a mild cleanser first. With a cotton ball, apply the solution to form a thin layer on your skin. When it’s dry, put on a moisturizer (preferably oil-free). Do that before you go to bed too.
  3. Experiment with tea tree oil for acne. Add a few more drops when you feel like your skin is reacting well to the solution. But if you notice some redness, dilute the oil a bit until you get the perfect solution.
  4. Once or twice a week, make a tea tree oil mask so you can control acne breakouts more effectively. Get a hypoallergenic green clay powder and add two or three drops of the tree oil. Pour water on  (little by little) until the solution turns in to a paste. Use the mixture as a facial mask and you are set.
2) Honey

You can use a honey mask like a regular mask and you can apply it every day if you have the time. Take a spatula of honey and spread it evenly on your clean face.  Let it dry for 20 minutes and rinse it off with warm water. You will instantly feel that your skin is softer and it will look healthier and refreshed:). This remedy is very effective for scars left behind from acne


   Mix one part vinegar to 8 parts of water. Place the solution in a closed-lid bottle and mix a grounded tablet of aspirin. The salicylic acid in the drug can help dry-up your acne. Use the solution like you would your toner – wash your face like you normally do and apply the solution afterwards. Since apple cider vinegar has a really strong stench, it is best to use it at night before going to bed.

Hope this article helps every make some more happy faces out there:)
