At-Home Acne Treatments With Simple Foods
Waking up in the morning with a zit in the middle of your face can easily ruin your day. You can forget about feeling pretty when you’re getting ready in the morning and all you can see is your ugly blemish—no matter how small, it’s still the first thing you see when you look in the mirror. While some top of the line acne treatments can be pricey, there are other ways to treat your skin.
According to All Women Stalk using natural products such as olive oil, baking soda, oatmeal, honey, and apple cider vinegar can be extremely beneficial to your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin.
If you choose to use olive oil, gently rub a small amount into your skin and leave it on for about 3 minutes. After, put a steamy towel on your face and leave it on until the heat of the towel reduces. Wipe the rest of the oil from your face and you’re good to go!
Baking soda acts as an exfoliator. Take a little less than a handful of baking soda, add water to your hands and rub on your face to get rid of bacteria in your skin. Then rinse your face and dry with a towel.
Acne causes redness and swelling in untreated areas. Create an at-home treatment with oatmeal by simply rubbing cooked oatmeal onto your face. Try leaving the oatmeal on for a couple minutes before rinsing.
While you may feel like you’re getting yourself into a sticky situation by applying honey to your face, remember that honey can help hydrate your skin. If you have dry skin, using honey as an at-home acne treatment is something you definitely want to try. Gently rub honey into your skin and let it sit for 15 to 30 minutes.
Finally, for glowing acne-free skin, use apple cider vinegar. All Women Stalk recommends that you mix one part apple cider vinegar with 3 parts water and use a cotton ball to apply to your skin. Then rinse with warm water and pat dry.
After trying one of these home treatment techniques, you’ll be feeling fresh and naturally beautiful because you better believe those zits will be less likely to come around with all the TLC your skin will be getting.
