For those of you who still have acne-ridden skin know exactly the ongoing challenge to not only treat the blemishes already on your faces but to avoid these from coming back.

Best thing to do when fighting acne is to go back to basics, resorting to natural solutions. Beauty experts suggest to look for natural ingredients and what to do with these natural ingredients to make them an effective solution for treating acne-ridden skin.

Aloe Vera – aloe vera is organically extracted ingredient known for its gentle and moisturizing properties. The inner gel mucilage of an aloe vera is usually an ingredient in skincare products and it is made up of 99.5% water. You can simply apply the aloe gel directly on your skin and leave it for a few minutes before rinsing it off with water.

Apple Cider Vinegar – It is considered the best astringent in nature since it aids in the pH balance in the skin making your skin less oily and less dry.

However, apple cider vinegar is very pungent and you must dilute it before applying on your skin. A good solution will be a mixture of one part apple cider vinegar to four parts water. You can apply the solution to your face with a cotton ball or a spritzer.

Although there is no need to wash it off, but if you cannot stand the smell even after diluting it, washing your face with water after applying the solution will do the trick.

Baking Soda – baking soda and water can soften blackheads and any clogged pores in your skin. This is best for what we call a congested skin. One can make a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) baking soda mask.

Fine-grained Salt – a fine-grained salt cleans deeply and will remove dead skin cells, helps balance moisture, and removes toxins from pores, it helps greatly in preventing acne or quick treatments during flare-ups on the face and body.

The best and simplest way to use a fine-grained salt is just to wet your face or body, then put some salt on your wet hands and apply it gently on your skin.

You can leave the salt for a few minutes then you can rinse it off with water thereafter. However, do not scrub the salt too hard on your skin because salt, by nature, is abrasive.

Honey – honey is a gentle remedy for those acne scars. You can have a DIY facial paste by mixing honey, aloe vera, a teaspoon of chickpea flour, and a pinch of turmeric. Apply the paste evenly on your face. After rinsing off the paste with water, you can apply an ice cube on your skin for at least 30 seconds to treat a congested facial skin.

Tea Tree Oil – tea tree oil is known for its antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antimicrobial properties. It is an easy and effective spot treatment. What you need to do is dilute tea tree oil in a little amount of extra virgin oil or an organic jojoba oil. You can directly apply the solution on a zit or pimple.

Turmeric – turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory agent. You can use it in gentle exfoliating bases like oat powders, kaolin clay or chickpea flour if available. The turmeric powder is derived from the root of curcuma zedoaria, a type of ginger which is native in Southeast Asia.

It has an active ingredient called curcumin, which is a compound that gives its yellow-orange tinge. Curcumin makes the turmeric a potent anti-inflammatory agent. Also, turmeric was found to help lighten hyperpigmentation.
