There are many natural and simple ways you can do at home to make acne go away. I would like to share with you 4 of these natural and simple ingredients that I think you can easily get from your local supermarket or grocery store. Plus, these are pretty economical yet effective stuff you can use every day to clear up mild to moderate acne, pimples or blemishes. This may help – I usually look out for weekend sales, special discounts or special ‘buy in bulk prices’ when shopping for some groceries.
Here are easy and convenient ways you can make acne go away using strawberries, lemon juice, honey and extra virgin olive oil.
Do you know that when it comes to skin, yummy strawberries have something that can definitely help to make your acne go away? Indeed, strawberries have a skin or rather acne-pleasing ingredient called alpha-hydroxy acid – and this is the all natural kind you can find in strawberries.
Alpha-hydroxy acid works sort of like salicylic acid to effectively clear up your skin. So it effectively penetrates your skin to slough away dead skin cells so that ‘new’, younger looking skin ‘comes up’.
How do you do this? Just get a strawberry and slice it into half. Now, gently rub the ‘inner part with seeds and all’ of the berry directly onto your skin – especially the areas with acne and blemishes. Then leave this on for about 5 minutes. Lastly, just rinse with water and dry with a clean face towel. You can do this twice daily. And you should see softer, dewy and smoother looking skin.
Side note, this should not irritate your skin or cause adverse side effects. But in case you see skin irritations or your SkinCell PRO skin getting all flared up – stop using this home remedy and see a doctor.
There are many uses for cheap, easily available and simple lemon juice. The one way of using lemon juice I want to share here is using pure and natural lemon juice to relieve blemishes on your skin.
Lemon juice has powerful disinfectant qualities (used a lot in fact, for cleaning in general) which can help fight acne causing bacteria (p.acnes). Citric acid in lemons also help to deeply penetrate to effectively clean blocked pores and make them smaller.
In addition, lemon juice helps reduce redness to give your skin a soft, even and nice tone. And I see this ingredient (citric acid) being used in many acne treatment systems and products. So I guess it should do the trick to make acne go away.
How is this done? Believe it or not, it is really simple. Just dab, pat or apply pure lemon juice on to the affected areas of your skin. Leave it for 5-10 minutes and rinse off with water.
You may start with maybe once or twice a day and see how your skin reacts. If all looks good, you can do this lemon juice-dabbing thing like 3 times daily. This will help give you smoother and clearer skin in weeks. Lemon juice is considered effective to help treat mild to moderate acne.
Side note: Lemon may make your skin sting for a bit or make your skin uncomfortable for a couple of days. But if you get skin irritations like your skin flaring up and becoming red, your skin may be sensitive to lemon juice. In this case, do not use this natural home remedy.
Honey has been used since a long time ago for many healing purposes like to treat wounds, burns, scars, cuts and some skin infections. Honey naturally has strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities. These qualities logically make honey the natural remedy to help fight bacteria that causes acne. At the same time, honey is soothing and calming to your skin.
