DIY Acne Treatment
Especially in times of financial hardship, more and more people are turning to homemade options. Many are finding that DIY acne treatments can be just as effective as expensive spa facials.
And if that’s the case, why not use things you already have in your kitchen cupboards rather than spending hundreds of dollars on products that you are just testing out when you could potentially get something better for much less?
Homemade Treats For Your Face
There are plenty of homemade acne treatments out there. Below you can find a few of the cheapest and most effective options that we’ve found!
Salt scrubs are extremely popular, and can be made for very little. Some prefer to use the bigger sea salt crystals but many find regular table salt to be just as effective. Salt works because it exfoliates away dead skin cells that may be clogging the pores while also helping you to control excess oil production and even disinfecting the skin to some degree.
Baking Soda seems so innocuous sometimes, you use it in just about every baking recipe. But why would you use it as a homemade acne treatment? Because it is easy and it works.
You only have to mix baking soda with water to get the right mask to heal your problematic skin. You apply a small amount of this mixture to your face and let it dry. It effectively pulls bacteria out while tightening up your pores for a clean and refreshed appearance.
Olive Oil has the same pH balance as our skin, which makes it an IDEAL moisturizer.
Rich in vitamins, minerals, and powerful antioxidants, lemon juice is one of the most effective home acne treatments. Lemon juice is a natural astringent, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and cleanser.
It has a pleasant aroma and works to give your skin a natural glow. These and other natural extracts are often found in the best natural acne pills to help you brighten your skin naturally from the inside out.
Extremely effective in supplementing your skin with needed vitamins and minerals, killing off bacteria, and improving the general condition of the skin with powerful antioxidants. It spreads easily across the face and also washes off easily. The only problem is that sometimes it can dry out the skin, so it’s important to use in conjunction with a natural moisturizer, like olive oil.
Finally, the cheapest and most basic homemade acne remedy is drinking more water. Water is essential for health, and just about every aspect of life, and when you drink more water, you are flushing toxins out of your body and skin, and hydrating yourself.
With just 8 cups each day, you can eliminate much of your acne and improve your overall health.
