Beauty Tips With Dunni: Home Remedies For Acne

share on:

Every Wednesday I get super excited because I put out a post for you guys. For the last 2 months, we have been discussing a lot of home remedies, and this week we will be discussing the home remedies for acne.

I previously did a post on acne, but home remedies were not included. All I did was  give tips on toning, moisturizing and exfoliating. I also listed fruits your skin loves the most. See the full post here

This time, we are strictly discussing home remedies. Here are 7 home remedies for acne:

1)Orange peel & Water

The acidic property and high vitamin c from an orange make it a good remedy for acne. Orange juice a s well as the peel are useful in battling acne but the peels are more effective.

Simply, leave the peels to dry out in the sun. Then grind the dry peel, mix with water to form a paste and apply on the affected area for 10-15 minutes and then rinse off.Acne5

2)Honey & Lemon

This is definitely the most popular one. Simply mix equal quantities of honey and lemon juice. Apply gently on the face, leave for 10-15 minutes and then rinse off.Acne4

3)Strawberry & Honey

Strawberries contain salicylic acid-a primary ingredient in many commercial acne treatments- encourages the epidermis to shed its cells more readily, opening up clogged pores, and neutralizing bacteria.

Simply mash up strawberries,  but ensure you do not over mash so it is not runny(Also, extract seeds). Then mix with two-third the quantity of mashed strawberries and thoroughly blend them together.

Apply on the face and leave for about 20minutes, then rinse off. This can be done twice a week.Acne3

4)Garlic & Aloe Vera

Garlic is very useful because of its high antibacterial property. You can either extract the juice from the garlic, dilute with clean water. Then dab on a cotton wool and apply to the affected area. Leave on for about 10-15 minutes then rinse off

If you do not have cotton wool or want to go a different route, simply mix the extracted juice with aloevera and rub on to the affected area. Leave for about 10-15 minutes also then rinse offAcne1

5)Banana Peel

Totally off topic, but am I the only one who has never heard a real life story of someone slipping because of a banana peel left carelessly on the ground?

Okay, so a lot of people do not know this but banana peels contain something called lutein, an extremely powerful antioxidant that reduces swelling and inflammation, and encourages healthy cell growth.

So, after eating the banana, gently rub the peel all over your face in a circular upward motion. Leave for about 20minutes then rinse off.Acne

6)Toothpaste

This is the fastest home remedy for acne I know. Apply small amount of your toothpaste on the affected area only before you go to bed then rinse off in the morning. Results should be visible after 2-3 nights.

7)Lemon & Water

Mix lemon juice with water and apply all over the face. Then rinse off.Acne2
