Despite what they might tell you, the big corporations have made little headway in their treatment of that pesky, irksome thing which we’re all too familiar with. Yep, you guessed it, it’s acne. While some of us have felt this burden more keenly than most, we’re here to help you with some home remedies to treat acne effectively. So, without a moment to lose, let’s get right to it!
Baking Soda: It’s got all the trappings of the Cinderella story! What am I on about? Well, it’s the elevation of the humble baking soda to unprecedented heights, and its ability to magically combat and defeat acne and pimples, of course! Baking soda, if you were quite unaware, acts as an exfoliant, effectively removing dead skin and unblocking them troublesome pores. For this, mix two tablespoons of baking soda, five tablespoons of honey, one tablespoon of cinnamon powder and the juice of half a lime in a bowl. Apply the resulting mixture onto the troublesome area, and keep it on for five minutes before washing it all off, and you’re done!
Multani Mitti Mix: Another great remedy for those upsetting acne and pimples, multani mitti or Fuller’s Earth can bring your treatment full circle! Now listen carefully, simply mix together equal portions of multani mitti, sandalwood powder and rose water, and that’s it. Keep this mudpack on till it dries up, and repeat once a week, and effectively sound the acne death knell for all time to come!
Toothpaste: Yes, you can stop rubbing your eyes this very minute, for toothpaste more than holds its own as an acne remedy! Moreover, as it’s something you always have lying about the house, it can easily be deployed to dry up the affected area, and even reduce that, oh so painful, swelling. Hey, we wouldn’t lie to you!
Tomatoes: Packed with antioxidants, and overflowing with vitamins A & C, this everyday vegetable is a potent pimple and acne defeater! Here’s how you can employ it- slice a tomato, and rub the slice all over the pimple dominated area, spend some time massaging the juice into your skin and wash away with some warm water. You could even do this twice a day, and deliver acne that killer blow!
