Use green tea two ways—you can splash some chilled green tea on your face and use it as a face wash. Or you can use a wet green tea bag and place it on the affected area. The antioxidants and antimicrobial elements in it will help fight acne.
To fight stubborn acne, all you’ll need is two tablespoons of finely chopped mint leaves, two tablespoons of yogurt and blitzed oatmeal powder. Mix all the ingredients together and apply the pack on your face. Leave it on for 30 minutes and wash it off with cold water. The mint will act as a natural toner and unclog dirty oil plugged pores.
Aloe vera is known for its countless benefits and for being one of the most versatile medicinal plants known to mankind. To get rid of acne, all you need to do is peel of a fresh aloe vera stem and apply the aloe vera gel on your face. Leave in on your face for 15 minutes and rinse with cold water. If you don’t have access to a plant, you can always buy organic aloe vera gel from health-stores.
Lemon juice can do wonders for your skin if you just know how to use it. It acts as an astringent, lightens your skin, reduces your acne marks and tighten your skin; giving it a fresh glow. Just apply the juice on the affected area but makes sure you wash it off in less than 10 minutes.
Cinnamon and Honey Mask
As strange as the combination may sound, it is known to deliver surprisingly good results. Just mix 2 tablespoons of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon. Apply the paste all over your face like a face mask and rinse after 20 minutes. Cinnamon has antimicrobial properties and honey is a humectant, so you can expect exemplary results.
Massage your skin gently with tomato pulp for 5 minutes, leave it on for 10-15 minutes and wash it off with lukewarm water. Being rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, it will reduce the blemishes on your skin. For a consistent result, practice this 2-3 times a week.
Say hello to your new, beautiful and radiant skin!
