Remember when you couldn’t wait to grow up to be successful and finally not have acne? Cut to ten years later and you are still dealing with the pesky pimples. Is that happening to everyone or is it just me?

Anyhoo, let’s just say that the bubble has popped and so have a lot of zits on my face. But get this; I recently found a solution to kick acne to the curb and it involves some grandma-approved natural ingredients.

You can DIY this acne spot treatment with super ingredients like turmeric, aloe vera gel, tea tree oil and shea butter. While turmeric kills the bacteria, tea tree oil works to fight acne and acne scars. Aloe vera heals and soothes skin, lightens acne marks and prevents acne. Shea butter moisturises the skin and helps hold all the ingredients together. Make this super easy spot treatment and use it the next time you spot a pimple popping up to get rid of it instantly.

How to:

To make the turmeric spot acne treatment, take one tablespoon of freshly extracted aloe vera gel and shea butter. Whisk it well to make it a smooth paste. Add a few drops of tea tree oil and a pinch of turmeric. Mix all the ingredients and transfer it into an empty chapstick. Let it set for one day.

Apply this on your pimples every night before bed and rinse off in the morning. This will reduce the redness and size of the pimple and also help lighten and prevent acne scars.
