Here are a few home made acne remedies with such household items as lemons, tomatoes, mint tea, cinnamon, nutmeg, and whole milk.
Acne the all too common “teen problem” is a skin disorder resulting mainly from tiny holes in your skin that fill up with bodily oils and dirt residue from the environment. Sometimes it is also attributed to the imbalances of substances in our bodies that make us feel angry, sad, sleepy, or hungry. Many a times it seems as if acne hits mainly during the adolescent years of age 13-18 then stops. Moreover, acne is a common problem among people over this age group. Many people suffer from acne well into their adult years. In this article I hope to showcase the most helpful home remedies to prevent and discontinue the birthing of pimples on the surface of the skin tissue.
A common aid that helps acne is lemon juice and baking soda. The drying qualities of lemon juice are very helpful in preventing acne. All one must do is go to their local grocers and buy 10 lemons which should last them for a month. Take the lemons and cut them in half using the one you need for the day first and leaving the rest for the rest of the month. Squeeze the juice from the lemon and with a cotton ball apply it all over the surface of the skin. Mix the remaining juice with a teaspoon of baking soda and apply thinly to face surface skin. Do this for about a month and you should notice drying up of pimples. This concoction serves as both an astringent and it exfoliates the skin.
And the most popular skin problem remedy, water. Drink at least 10 cups a day and you should notice healthier skin in about 2 weeks depending on how long you have not drunken enough water and your body make up. Moreover, if you are still experiencing problems with your acne after following the above routine, consider the following home remedies and follow through with each one and within a month you should notice a change in your skin’s appearance.
If you have struggled in the past with acne and have had problems with acne scars showing up after the actual bump has disappeared try a solution of ground nutmeg and milk. Make a trip to your local health food store for the best quality nutmeg or if low on cash to your local grocers for regular McCormick’s nutmeg. Combine one teaspoon of nutmeg with one teaspoon of milk. Spread this solution over your face and within a month you should see disappearance of pimples if applied every night before going to bed.
If you have tired of using those pasty and messy green goopy masques sold in your local CVS as a resolution to acne problems try a cinnamon-honey concoction instead. Take three teaspoons of cinnamon and combine with one teaspoon of honey. Spread this solution over your face before going to bed at night and rinse off in the morning. You should have a spanking new skin surface or at least the disappearance of the most troublesome bumps within two weeks.
Before you take that last sip from your mint teacup at night think about your acne. Rub that last tablespoon of mint solution over your face and you should notice a clear up within a month with regular applications.
Before you turn on your next episode of ER mash a cup of tomatoes and spread it over your face leave on your face for one hour and rinse off after that hour. You should notice a difference within a month.
Green limes also are proven to prevent pimples. With regular application before bed each night a teaspoon of this juice over your skin should have you clear in no time at all.
With a regular routine of one to three of the above remedies you should see results in no time at all. So consider the above remedies as you preplan your next social event or major public outing.
