I don’t know about you, but I used to be totally overwhelmed when it came to dealing with my acne breakouts. And sometimes it seems that with all the heaps of information out there, home acne remedies come a dime a dozen. I’m guessing you just want some acne home remedies that work – plain and simple. Well, I’ve got 3 that can really help you get the clear skin you want faster than you would probably expect. If you’ve ever wondered to how to get very noticeable results in your skin in a matter of weeks (sometimes days), then you don’t want to miss these:
Aloe vera gel
I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve already heard a lot about this one, because this is an ancient but powerful healer. So what will it do for you? Well the gel from the inside of this helpful plant will help your skin not only heal faster, but it will also cut down on redness and swelling. This is helpful when you need a quick fix. Bonus: If you can manage to use your own plant, then your results will significantly improved! The more natural, the better.
Mud – No Really!
OK, I don’t mean go out start saturating the ground with the garden hose. I’m actually talking about bentonite, or “montmorillonite” if you are fancy. When you liberally apply this stuff to your face, you can reap the rewards: the natural minerals contained in bentonite are negatively charged, meaning this will draw toxins out of your skin. In case you haven’t already heard, that’s extremely helpful for getting rid of blemishes and makes this a top acne home remedy. Sometimes bentonite can be a bit difficult to find, but it should be available at your local health store.
Apple Cider Vinegar
This acne home remedy is really all over the net it would seem. I personally think it’s been hyped up a little too much, but at the same time apple cider vinegar has a lot of useful properties, even outside the topic of acne. What this stuff can do for you is help you return to a normal ph level, which is vital for the clarity of your skin. Just a word of caution: if your skin is sensitive, be sure to dilute the vinegar with water before applying it to your skin. You don’t want to irritate your skin!
