Do you suffer from acne? If that is the case, you may want to have a kit to reach for that will kick those breakouts to the curb for good. Now, you can easily get anti-acne kits out in the market and they do work; the problem is they might cost too much money and not always give you the desired results.
If you are ready for a skin revolution and you look forward to saving money on your anti-acne regimen, below are some homemade remedies for acne that you may want to try out. Not only are they easy on the pocket but they are also very easy to make.
Homemade Remedies for Acne
There are many acne kits that you can emulate but like anything else, a simple one is the best and you want to replicate an anti-acne kit that doesn’t have too many products. If this is your first time to try homemade remedies as part of your anti-acne kit then emulating a simple kit is the best thing to do. Check out the makings of a 3-step anti acne kit below:
Baking Soda and Water – Forget about fancy facial washes! A bit of baking soda and water can do wonders for your skin. Not only is baking soda alkaline and a killer bacteria-killer but it will also exfoliate the skin gently.
Heavy Cream Anti-acne Mask – Most anti-acne kits in the market will have some mask that you can use once or twice a week so it just makes sense that your homemade anti-acne kit will have one as well. For this mask, you will need a tablespoon each of heavy cream and honey plus a gram of baking soda. Mix them all together in a paste and apply all over the face. Leave it on for about 15 minutes and rinse off with warm water.
Rosehip Oil and Vitamin E Moisturizer – A kit from the market will normally have an anti-acne cream in the package and you will need one too. Making an anti-acne face cream can take some time and know-how but you can get away with using natural and organic oils as your moisturizer. You can get plenty of natural facial oils in the market but try to go for ones that come with tea tree oil or lavender oil since they are quite effective against acne and acne scars too.
Turmeric/nutmeg spot treatment – Not all kits come with spot acne treatments but since this is your DIY anti acne kit, you can add this step if you want. This spot acne treatment is very easy to make since you just need half a teaspoon each of nutmeg and turmeric mixed with a tablespoon of honey to make a paste. Apply the paste to your pimples and zits and allow to stay for half an hour. Rinse off with warm water and apply some ice to bring down the swelling.
When used together, those homemade remedies for acne mentioned above should do a great job of doing away with your current acne breakouts and preventing new ones from cropping out.
