5 Home Remedies for Acne

1. Baking Soda

One of the best home remedies for acne is baking soda. There are several reasons for this. First, it balances the pH level of the skin, which can help to reduce oil levels. Second, it acts as an exfoliator for your skin, removing dirt, makeup, and dead skin cells. You can use baking soda to wash your entire face to prevent acne, and you can also use it to spot-treat problem areas. To use as a cleaner, mix equal parts baking soda and water and gently scrub your entire face. To use it as a spot treatment, add a few drops of lemon juice to baking soda and apply a thin layer to the affected area for 5 to 10 minutes.


2. Toothpaste

Mint has many healing properties when it comes to acne, so it's no surprise that toothpaste is a popular home remedy to treat unsightly pimples. It is important to use the right kind of toothpaste: a white paste that contains hydrogen peroxide or baking soda. The combination of these ingredients can help to reduce acne-causing bacteria and relieve the pain associated with inflammation. Toothpaste can be very drying, and it's also very messy, so this remedy works best for the occasional spot treatment. Simply apply a thin layer to the pimple and leave it on overnight, rinsing thoroughly the next morning.

3. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is an effective remedy for a wide range of skin problems, and acne is no exception. It has anti-fungal and antiseptic properties, which makes it a good tool for reducing facial bacterial. It can also minimize scarring from acne. To use tea tree oil, use a cotton swab to apply a small amount to affected areas. A few drops are more than enough to treat all of your acne. Like many concentrated oils, using too much tea tree oil can result in skin irritation, so be careful not to overdo it.  You'll find tea tree oil in many pharmacies and beauty supply stores.

4. Aloe Vera

Whether you get it straight from the plant or from the bottle, aloe vera is one of the most soothing substances for your skin. Although it is commonly associated with sunburns, aloe vera can be very beneficial for a variety of skin conditions, including acne. Most pharmacies sell pure aloe vera, but you can also buy an inexpensive aloe vera plant to keep in your home or apartment. Simply break off a leaf to access the healing solution inside. Aloe vera gel is a natural moisturizer, which can reduce the amount of acne-causing products you need to use on your face. Its antimicrobial properties also help to reduce redness and inflammation, and its cooling sensation will relieve pain.

5. Apple Cider Vinegar

Because apple cider vinegar is a naturally antibacterial substance, it is an excellent home remedy for skin treatments. Apple cider vinegar can help to balance the pH levels of the skin, adding acidity that will balance out oil production levels. While vinegar can be used as a cleanser as well, the best way to use it is as a toner. After thoroughly washing and drying your face, apply apple cider vinegar using a clean makeup sponge or cotton swab. Leave the vinegar treatment on for 15 minutes, then rinse with cool water. Apply a natural moisturizer, like aloe or another moisturizer without oil, to your blemishes to complete the treatment.

Underwear that Fits Correctly ARTICLE: There is one very easy trick to making all your clothes look good (even when you’re wearing your own 34-year-old Duran Duran t-shirt – the oldest piece of clothing I own by a very, very long way). That number 1 trick? Get your underwear right. Oh, I can’t tell you how many years I spent wearing the wrong kind of underwear. The wrong size bra, ill-fitting knickers, the wrong  shape  bras… I’ve learnt a new trick just recently – but first, that t-shirt! My original Duran Duran Seven and the Ragged Tiger tour t-shirt is mine –  from 1983 . I cannot tell you how happy I am to be wearing my most treasured t-shirt and oldest item in my wardrobe, an item I thought until recently was most probably lost. I knew I hadn’t deliberately got rid of it, I just knew I’d put it somewhere ‘safe’ (that old chestnut!) and I’d been looking for it for years.

Vitamins Needed for Healthy Skin

Research suggests that some vitamins might play a key role in skin health. In many cases, these vitamins are most effective when a person applies them directly to the skin. Following a healthful, balanced diet that is free of vitamin and nutrient deficiencies may improve skin health by boosting overall health. Vitamin A Many multivitamins contain 100 percent or more of the recommended daily intake of  vitamin A . Other  good sources of vitamin A  include carrots, dark leafy green vegetables,  sweet potatoes , and  eggs . Retinoids, including retinol, tretinoin, isotretinoin, and similar chemicals, are manufactured forms of vitamin A. B-complex vitamins Several  B-complex vitamins  may improve skin health. The water-soluble vitamins are readily available as supplements, including as supplements that include all 12 B-complex vitamins. Research into the role of vitamin B-complex supplements is promising, though inconclusive. A  2018 study  found that vitam
