Home Remedies for Acne: Instead of spending so much money on skincare products, which may or may not work for your face, why not just try these general home remedies to cure skin acne for all skin types? Below are some home remedies for skin acne that you can give a try:
- COFFEE /OLIVE OIL/SUGAR MASK
Mix dry coffee with olive oil and sugar. Do not add water, so it doesn’t drip from your skin. Mix all ingredients until the mixture becomes smooth. A tropical plant of the genus Coffee is used to make coffee. It includes ingredients for cleansing and smoothening. This mask would also help your skin get clearer and lighter. The mixture also dries your skin properly and prevents your sweat pores from emitting too much sweat, increasing acne.
2) EGG/HONEY MASK
An egg contains protein, and it builds the body just like every other protein. It would build the skin of your face and cover up the acne. An egg is also used for cleansing and clearing. Extract the egg white and mix it with honey. Honey is an antioxidant which helps to eliminate all forms of dirt, marks, and skin contours. This healthy mixture makes your face smooth and rich with brightness. It makes your skin glow like a morning sun. This mixture is also good for the hair, so you could just double the mixture and kill two birds with one stone.
3) ALOE VERA
The syrup from Aloe Vera is used to treat skin problems. However, Aloe Vera gets the skin itchy, so be warned. 15 minutes is enough for it to be left on your skin. While you rub the syrup, the remaining syrup on the plant can still be applied to your face to ensure that you have enough for your acne treatment. If you do not know where to get an Aloe Vera, you could get the plant’s root from a friend, neighbor, or family member and plant it in your garden. You could also get it from your local store.
4) PALM KERNEL OIL
This oil is used to cleanse the skin and prevent body odor, so you could double this treatment.
5) THE POPULAR HANDS-OFF-FACE POLICY
Your hands usually carry dirt all the time. That’s why there are products called “hand sanitizers”. Therefore, it is necessary for you to keep your hands off your face so that the germs would not be transferred to your face. Of course, dust is everywhere and can get to your face, but the germs on your hand are obtained from the things you touch, the people you hold or touch, and the things that hit your hand. If you need to scratch your face or clean it, use your handkerchief or face towel. It is safer to use these handy items in order to ensure no germs get to your face.
6) WASH YOUR FACE REGULARLY
Be it at night or day, wash your face regularly, and ensure it stays clean. Whenever it feels oily, wash it; whenever you have just finished a strenuous job, wash it; better still, have a bath. Also, if you need to bath at any time and cannot, simply wash your face.
