Six Home Remedies for Acne

  1. An oatmeal mask is one of the most common household acne treatments, and also one of the most common. Simply put, you make the oatmeal as you usually would, and after it's cooled you apply it to your face and let sit for fifteen to twenty minutes before removing.
  2. Tea tree oil is another essential treatment for people with bad acne, but be warned, misuse can seriously damage your skin. Buy it mixed with water, or in a gel with something else, for best results. Put it on your face before you go to sleep at night.
  3. Similar to an oatmeal mask, a honey and apple mixture mask is another good way to get rid of acne. Grate an apple and mix it with honey and apply it to your face for fifteen to twenty minutes.
  4. Vinegar is another great treatment for acne. Just mix it with water and dab on your face, and you'll start seeing results in a few days.
  5. Egg whites are as good, if not better, then the other treatments listed above. Like tea tree oil, all you have to do is dab a bit onto your face before you go to sleep, and rub it off in the morning, to start to see results later on in the week.
  6. Lastly, similar to the honey and apple mask, you can do a pineapple and honey mask and expect the same results. Be sure to mash, and then drain the pineapple of the juice before making your mixture though, as too much juice will limit the effectiveness of the mask.
