From the Archives : Acne - Home Remedies {DIY}


Yesterday, I talked about how to take care of your skin and keep hygiene for preventing more acne outbreaks. Today, I would like to talk about some effective home remedies for acne. Hope these will be helpful for you. 
  • Lemon juice is one of the best bets. It kills the bacteria in the acne and also reduces the oil production on the skin. In fact, all the citrus fruit family is great for acne. Oranges, strawberries, raspberries; take a slice of them every time you eat a fruit and rub it over your face and other affected parts of the body and keep it on till it dries off. Wash with very cold water so that it gives some relief from any burning or tingling sensation. 
  • When I talked about lemon, tomato is the next follow up. Tomato juice is also equally effective for acne.
  • Remember one thing: Whenever you feel a tingling sensation after you apply any herbal or other product, it is a proof that it is working. If it starts irritating the skin or causes change in skin color, then it is probably time to get rid of the product or remedy.
  • Onion Juice and Ginger Juice is another great remedy for acne. Extract onion juice or ginger juice or cut a slice of onion or ginger and apply it on the affected parts. Wash off with cool water. You can even mix both of them.
  • To reduce any burning sensation or inflammation, use cooled tea bags and chilled cucumber slices. They provide a lot of relaxation. You can also apply sandalwood paste. It cools the skin and is an antiseptic. Mint juice is also very useful in dealing with the acne.
  • Mix 3/4th part of sandalwood and 1/4th part of turmeric. Make a paste with any fruit juice or mint juice and apply to the affected parts.
  • How could I forget aloevera gel. Plant an aloe at home and reap its benefits. The gel straight from the plant is great for acne.
  • Do not forget to use pomegranates. They too give you a lovely acne free skin.
You can also use something which will provide a cooling sensation or relief to the acne.

What home remedies do you use for your skin?

    1. tomato + honey is very effective for removing scars. if you get sandalwood bloack, sandalwood is again great for scar removal. aloevera gel and cucumber juice and lemon juice are all great for removing scars. but, be patient and use these remedies regularly and it will take time to see results. give it at least a month. hope this helps :)

    1. one tablespoon each of tomato juice and honey should be enough to cover your entire face!!! Or, you can also do a spot treatment. keep it for 15-20 minutes and wash it off!!! do this daily at night.
