Please try the following as a remedy to the pimples on your face-
1. Apply some apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a powerhouse when it comes to acting as an acne
remedy. Why? It kills off the bacteria that may be causing all the trouble in the
first place. It also becomes alkaline, and balances the pH of your skin, which
in turn makes it harder for bacteria to thrive. To top it off it’s an astringent, like
lemon juice, and will help dry up excess oil. Keeping that in mind, don’t
overdo and dry out your skin too much. This could cause the sebaceous
glands overproduce to compensate, therefore triggering an outbreak.
You will need…
-Pure unfiltered apple cider vinegar
-Fresh water
Wash your face with water and pat dry. Using a ratio of 1 part vinegar to 3
parts water, dip a cotton ball into vinegar and apply it directly to the blemish.
Leave on for at least 10 minutes, or overnight. Reapply several times a day,
washing face thoroughly after each time. Make sure to use a moisturizer
afterwards as well if you feel like your skin is getting dry.

2. Make a cinnamon and honey mask
Honey is sticky, and cinnamon is spicy, and it seems like they’re both things
you’d want to avoid getting near your skin. Surprisingly, while it may sound
strange, honey and cinnamon make a (literally) killer combo when it comes to
acne. Cinnamon has antimicrobial properties, so it can help stop bacteria
from getting out of hand. If it does, the honey is a natural anti-biotic, ready
and waiting to wipe the little buggers out.
You will need…
-2 tablespoons of honey
-1 teaspoon of cinnamon
– paper towels
Rinse your face with water and pat dry. Mix 2 tablespoons of honey and 1
teaspoon of cinnamon together until they are thoroughly blended and have
formed a sort of paste. Apply the mask to your face (or spot treat) and leave
on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse off completely, and pat your face dry. This is a
sticky mixture, so make sure you have some paper towels at on hand.

3. The land of milk and honey (or yogurt)
While there is quite a bit of hub bub around dairy products causing acne,
applied topically it seems that milk can improve your outbreaks and skin tone.
The reason it is suggested that milk would cause acne is because of the extra
hormones in it-but unless it’s ingested, this doesn’t really do much. For the
most part, it just soothes the irritated skin, and helps tone down the redness.
Cleopatra swore on the milk baths she took, and well, she was Cleopatra.
You could also use yogurt. The acids in it are antibacterial while the fat
provides moisture, making it quite nourishing for skin.
You will need…
– 1 tablespoon plain low-fat or full-fat yogurt or milk, anything but skim
– 1 tablespoon of natural, raw, honey
Let yogurt or milk come to room temperature (or close to) so you don’t get a
chilly shock when you put it on your skin. Mix 1 tablespoon of milk or yogurt
thoroughly with 1 tablespoon of honey. You can apply the mixture with a
cotton pad, but scooping it up and patting it on works just fine as well. Let
each layer dry before adding a new one, until the mask is the thickness you
want. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Wash your mask off and use a washcloth to
gently scrub in a circular motion, getting rid of loosened dead skin. Once
you’re finished, moisturize as usual.
4. Whip up some ‘whites
Egg whites are an easy and affordable way to help reduce acne and fade
scars left by unfortunate blemishes. The reason people have found egg
whites to be helpful for their skin is because they’re chock full of proteins and
vitamins that both combat acne, and help to rebuild your skin cells. They also
soak up excess oil, which means excess sebum, (exactly what you were
thinking right?) which means less stuff for bacteria to feed on. Hooray! Just
make sure to use a good moisturizer afterwards, as they can dry your skin
out a bit.
You will need…
-2 to 3 egg whites, separated from yolks
Rinse your face with water and pat dry. Separate the whites from the yolks.
You can use as many as you like, but normally 2 to 3 is enough. Whisk the
whites until they’re frothy, and let them sit for a few minutes. Cover your face
with the mixture (applying with fingertips is easy) focusing on problem spots.
3 to 4 layers is usually enough, but make sure to wait the first has dried
before applying more. Allow the mask to sit and dry for about 20 minutes
before rinsing off completely with warm water and a patting dry with a soft
washcloth. Apply moisturizer appropriate for your skin type.
5. Papaya for the pimple prone
Papaya is an essential ingredient in a lot of beauty products on the market
today, but theres no need to go out of your way to gain its benefits? Plain raw
papaya is an all-natural acne remedy that removes dead skin cells and
excess lipids from the surface of the skin, leaving it soft and smooth. Lipids
are a general term for fats, of which oil is a form of. Papaya also contains an
enzyme called papain, which reduces inflammation and helps prevent the pus
from forming.
You will need…
-1 fresh papaya
Rinse your face with water and pat dry. Mash up the flesh of the papaya well,
until it is of a consistency that can be easily applied to your skin. Leave it on
for 15-20 minutes, and then rinse off completely with warm water. If your skin
has a tendency to get dry after you cleanse it, use a moisturizer appropriate
for your skin type afterwards.
6. Make an orange peel paste
Ah, oranges. They taste rejuvenating and refreshing, and our skin may find
them just as appealing as our taste buds do. Acne that is caused by bacteria
and extra oil/dead skin cells clogging up pores may improve with the use of
an orange peel face mask of sorts, thanks to the vitamin C, citric acid, and it’s
astringent properties. The vitamin C is particularly helpful because it
promotes the growth of new healthy cells, keeping your skin in better
condition overall.
You will need…
-2 Orange peels
-Clean, fresh water
Rinse your face with water and pat dry. Grind/pound up your orange peels
(you could use a blender, mortar and pestle, whatever gets the job done) and
add a little water to create a paste. Add a little at a time, as too much will
make it too thin and runny. Once you have the right consistency, apply it to
your face and/or problem areas. Wait for 20-25 minutes. Ideally the mask
should be firm, but it can still work if it isn’t. Rinse off completely with water,
pat your face dry, and apply a good moisturize.
7. Tap into tea tree oil
You’ll read about tea tree oil for a lot of home remedies, but will most likely
see it mentioned the most when comes to skin care, specifically, acne. But
why, when too much oil is clogging the pores and making you break out,
would you want to use more oil? Tea tree oil isn’t like the oil your skin
naturally produces, rather it is more like a solvent that cuts through the extra
sebum and dead skin cells, and unblocks the pores. Its antibacterial
properties also kill off the acne causing bacteria, and prevent further
Note: Tea tree oil is ok for topical use, but should never be ingested. It
should also always be diluted before use.
You will need…
-Tea tree oil (a small bottle will do)
-Clean water
-Q- tips or cotton balls
Wash your face with water and pat dry. Dilute tea tree oil by mixing 1 part oil
to 9 parts water. Dip a Q-tip or cotton swab in mixture, and apply to problem
areas. If you decide you want a stronger dilution after a while, you can slowly
(slowly!) begin to increase the strength, making sure to use each new mixture
for at least a week for making it any stronger. Again, it should never be
applied undiluted. You can apply a light moisturizer afterwards if you wish.
Another option, especially if you have sensitive skin, is to dilute it with aloe
vera gel instead of water.
8. Mix strawberries and honey
Honey and strawberries make a home remedy for acne that sounds pretty
sweet (pun intended) and it combines two things that are used commonly in
pricey, often time’s harsh, facial scrubs and cleansers. Strawberries may
seem random, but consider the fact that they’re high in salicylic acid. Salicylic
acid-a primary ingredient in many commercial acne treatments- encourages
the epidermis to shed its cells more readily, opening up clogged pores, and
neutralizing bacteria. It also shrinks up the pores a little bit, which prevents
them from clogging up as much in the future, and encourages new cell
growth. Honey also works against bacteria that may be behind your acne,
and is an anti-inflammatory.
You will need…
-3 fresh strawberries, washed well
-2 teaspoons of good honey-raw is best
Wash your face with water and pat dry. Rinse 3 strawberries and mash them
up well, taking care that they don’t get over-mashed and runny. Add the
strawberries to two teaspoons of honey, and thoroughly blend them together.
Apply to your face and let the mixture sit for 20 minutes. Rinse off completely
with warm water, pat dry, and moisturize if your skin has a tendency to dry
out. Use twice a week for at least a month.
9. Utilize a banana peel
Bananas are full of all sorts of goodness-even the part we don’t eat. Their
peels contain something called lutein, an extremely powerful antioxidant that
reduces swelling and inflammation, and encourages healthy cell growth.
So…rubbing a banana peel on your face can reduce the redness,
obviousness, and discomfort of acne. It’s (debatably) a better use than using
it to trip your friend.
You will need…
-1 banana peel
Peel your banana and eat it- it’s not cool to waste, and they’re good for you.
Take the peel, and rub in a circular motion all over your face. When you feel
as though you’ve covered all of your face, let it sit for at least 30 minutes
before rinsing it off.
10. Aloe for acne
Aloe vera gel can be used with other things to fight acne, but it’s a good thing
on its own as well. If it’s going to be used on its own, the best is to have a
little aloe plant floating around in your house, otherwise a good gel that’s sold
in stores may work as well-just do some research on which ones have the
least amount of additives. Not only is the aloe soothing, it works as an anti-
inflammatory, decreasing redness and swelling. It also has antibacterial
You will need…
-Enough aloe vera gel to spot treat or cover your problem areas
Wash your face with water and pat dry. Using your fingertips or a Q-tip, apply
the aloe directly to your problem areas.
11. The wonders of sodium bicarbonate
Sodium bicarbonate, glorious sodium bicarbonate, swoops in and makes
itself useful in too many ways to count. In the case of acne remedies, this
fabulous substance (also known as baking soda) is useful thanks to its mild
antiseptic properties, as well as its uncanny ability to fight off fungus and
bacteria and dry up excess oil, all while exfoliating your skin via
microdermabrasion and making it soft and beautiful. I know-I get star struck
too now whenever I see a box of baking soda.
You will need…
-a box of baking soda
-fresh water
There are two ways to go about this-making a facial mask, or a
straightforward scrub. For a facial mask, mix equal parts baking soda to water
to form a thick paste. Massage the paste on in slow circular motions for a 2
minutes. Leave the mask on for around 15-20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly
with warm water, pat dry, and moisturize.
For a scrub, mix a half a cup of baking soda with one eighth a cup of water.
Apply the paste to your face, massaging it in well. After 5-6 minutes of this,
rinse your face thoroughly with warm water, pat dry, and moisturize.
12. Dab some lemon juice on it
Lemon juice can help get rid of breakouts for a number of reasons. It is rich in
vitamin C, which is good for all types of skin, and it’s a citric acid, so it helps
‘exfoliate’ the skin as well. Most importantly though, it is an astringent. An
astringent will cause a contraction of body tissues, and will therefore dry out
the blemish itself. It is also a natural skin whitener, which helps reduce
redness. If you misplace a dab you may get a little white spot, but don’t panic-
it will go away on its own accord. Rinse off any lemon juice before going out
in the sun, as it may make you more sensitive to it.
You will need…
-1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice (approximately)
-Q- tips or cotton balls (optional)
-Yogurt (optional)
Rinse face gently with water and pat dry. Dab fingers, a cotton ball, or a Q-tip
in lemon juice and apply to pimple. If it stings, try mixing it first with a bit of
