From the Archives : Use ginger to get rid of acne {DIY}


PS: Everyone has been asking me about how to get rid of acne so this is an old and a very useful post on the same topic. Hope this helps :)

Ginger is a very useful spice. And, it has great anti-oxidant and anti-aging properties along with its astringent properties which comes handy when you are dealing with a stubborn problem like acne. Acne can come in form of pimples, outbreaks or even worse. So, let us discuss what all you can do from ginger.

Ginger is great as a drink every day. Yes, it is pretty bitter in taste but it improves your skin from inside. It helps your body fight the free radicals and keeps your digestive system in order. It cleans out the toxins from your system. Ginger improves the blood circulation throughout the body and also cleans out the blood. Not only this, it also improves the skin tone and helps in getting rid of blemishes and spots.

Squeeze out a little of ginger juice and apply it on your face or just the acne-affected areas and see your skin improve in a matter of days. It works very well for unexpected outbreaks and pimples. You can also use the juice as a face mask for blemished and sun-burnt skin. And, you can also help your body by including this spice in your daily diet.

A little every day goes a long way. You can also use a little ginger in your spinach-lettuce juice in the morning. Pass a small slice of ginger along with spinach and lettuce while making the juice. It would give a spicy taste to your drink. And, not to mention, ginger is really good for throat infections, dry coughs and colds.

So, have you used ginger on your acne ever? Does it help?

  1. Thanks for the info. I may try that if my acne returns. I got rid of my acne by doing at-home glycolic peels. I buy the solution online for cheap, and it's very mild. I use it once a week or mix it with my moisturizer for a milder nightly treatment http://mychemicalpeel.blogspot.com/p/diluting-glycolic-acid-for-various-uses.html

    1. Why would you want to PUT glycolic acid on your face as opposed to natural ginger?

  2. Hey Gabi...this treatment would work if done regularly...once the acne sets on if you try this, this might not work because home remedies generally prevent rather than cure....

    i was desperately tryin to cure it..i used Lacto Calamine lotion which actually made the situation worse...i got my skin peeling and i was so ashamed to show myface.Eloe vera(vitamin E+aloe vera)reduced the peeling...i consulted a dermatologist and she helped me out with momate and emoderm..the burns cured but white patches wer left behind which looked quite ugly..

  8. I used: ginger juice, honey, sugar and lime juice... mix, exfoliate face and neck, leave on for 10 mins, rinse, pat dry and moisturize with a facial serum. Just tried it... my skin is heavenly! Thank God! I'd definitely use this as a daily treatment to help even out my skin tone and prevent more breakouts. I always chew ginger~ but never thought to put it on my skin. Pfft! Thank you :)

  9. i bought some ginger balm and applied it to my face each night before i went to bed and it healed my bad acne that i had for two weeks and nothing would take the swell or infection down, and after using ginger balm for two nights its already healing. its reducing the redness of the acne scars as well, not to mention my face is so smooth and soft. no more problems with over dry skin during this cold winter air, and pimples popping up from using oily greasy lotion on face. i've always had horrible problems with acne since i started having kids and this gingerbalm really amazed me with what its doing for my face. now i tried this before hearing anything about ginger healing acne, i just decided to google it because i have noticed a dramatic change in my skin since i started using it two days ago. try it for your self, its called "ginger balm go" by "the ginger people" ... definitely worth a check out. proactiv never worked , neither does neutrogena or clearasil... whatever that 3 step foam stuff is they sell on tv i forget the name, but that didnt either.

  12. I love the taste of ginger tea and I have used ginger, honey, and sugar as a face mask...quick and easy....granulated ginger tea...just add a tiny bit of water like enough to moisten the bottom of the cup...make use it has a scrub slash mask...add more water and pour over your scalp and hair....or use the tea bag if you go that route as a toner....it works well for cramps...kicks bad breath...and really all around is wonderful

  28. True ginger has excellent properties, grate some ginger and add a little honey, have it before lunch, this is great for digestion.
    Natalya Nat , i had acne scars too, take 1/3 teaspoon of lemon juice and dilute it with 1 tablespoon of rose water, apply it on clean face every night with a cotton ball and wash it off the next day. pls check if your skin is sensitive then avoid it. i got rid of all acne marks within 1 month with this recipe.

    1. hello. please do not store lemon juice. it should be used fresh so either squeeze the juice whenever you are using or make do without. the vitaminc c disintegrates after 15 minutes of contact with air.
