Why apply harsh, expensive chemicals to your face if you don’t need to? Natural products have been shown to treat certain types of acne effectively, and also come with fewer side effects than traditional medications.
Apple cider vinegar has also been gaining prominence in the beauty market recently. Although it's not a panacea for every type of skin trouble, this healing ingredient acts as a great natural toner that can leave your skin looking healthier.
To treat acne, try diluting apple cider vinegar with water (the ratio depends on how sensitive your skin is). This mixture can be applied with a spray bottle or a cotton ball. According to Home Remedies For Life, you can also add tea tree oil, aloe vera gel or witch hazel.
Studies have shown that tea tree oil alone can also help to fight skin infections like acne, Medical Daily previously reported. The strong-smelling oil is antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial, but it can be very strong. Be sure to dilute the solution before putting it directly on your breakouts, since it can burn and cause dryness to the area.
Additionally, the antifungal and antibacterial properties of turmeric can help to get rid of certain types of pimples faster. Mixing a paste of turmeric and water and then applying it topically can help to reduce inflammation and cut down on the healing time.
It’s not only what you apply to your body externally, but also what you put in it. Studies have identified a link between dairy and acne breakouts, Medical Daily previously reported.
Additionally, drinking more water daily moisturizes your skin, flushes out toxins, and can help reduce acne flares
