Home remedies to get rid of acne using Kitchen Ingredients

Yes! Anyone who is suffering from irritating itchy acne can whip up some simple kitchen and over-the-counter ingredients to make natural home remedies to get rid of acne. Nope, you don't need to go around hunting for exotic ingredients that you may have never even heard of before! Just pull out some simple but very effective, powerful and natural ingredients for a healthy environmental friendly acne-busting journey!

Yogurt Mask Yogurt is very important for clearing your skin of acne as it contains zinc that manages skin oil production. Yogurt is acidic in nature and helps destroy the bacteria causing acne thereby preventing more acne from developing on your face. Take a delicious meal of yogurt for breakfast to clear your face off those disgusting acne once and for all. You can also apply a yogurt face mask to nourish and feed nutrients to your skin from the outside. Remember to buy the probiotic plain yogurt with live cultures in it!

The Honey Healer! Honey has antiseptic properties that can destroy bacteria-causing acne, soothe acne breakouts and even lighten acne scars! Honey also has wondrous moisturizing properties that can water the skin, getting rid of excess oil produced by the sebaceous glands of the skin. Keep a warm bottle of honey water with you wherever you are and keep sipping while knowing that you're contributing to getting rid of acne! And, the added benefit is while you're drinking the delicious honey water, you're drinking more water! A honey face mask is another great way of benefiting from honey benefits for skin and acne. Slather a thick coat of clear organic honey on your face and leave it for at least twenty minutes before rinsing off with warm water. Honey helps clear skin by treating bulbous inflamed acne.


Get Rid of Acne

Lemon Power Lemon is a natural astringent, that closes pores on skin, preventing a build-up of excess oil on your face that eventually creates oily acne. Lemon gently cleanses the excess oils on your face to promote clear glowing skin, free from acne. Every morning before breakfast, take a full glass of water and squeeze in a ripe lemon to enjoy the full benefits of lemon for acne. When applying lemon juice on your face, make sure you dilute it so that it doesn't burn your face causing ugly red scorch-like marks. 1 part of lemon juice to 2 parts of water is dilute enough.

A little Garlic Before we look at how garlic is a super acne removal ingredient, I MUST say that DO NOT use a lot of it. Please be sure to dilute the garlic with water. Garlic contains acids that can severely burn your skin, worsening acne and pimples. Anyway, garlic is very good for cleansing acne as it contains anti-septic properties that destroy bacteria that cause acne. The smell of garlic may be off putting to some people but if you mix it up with other ingredients like honey or yogurt, the smell won’t be an issue. Mash a one garlic clove finely and then dilute the garlic with water and apply to the affected areas to cure the acne. You can also add a drizzle of honey to add an extra added effect and soothe the breakouts.

Lifestyle Changes to get rid of acne

When using home remedies to get rid of acne, there are some lifestyle changes you must be ready to take on.

No more greasy junkies Spare the French fries and cheese burgers, people. When you’re serious about getting rid of acne, you’ll take great measures to get a beautiful acne-free face. Oily foods are what many people may opt for when it comes to snacking but did you know that apart from causing acne, oily foods also cause a great deal of health problems? Substitute junk food for fruits that are not only immune-boosting but also acne-clearing.

Do you smoke? If yes, then you’d better quit. Acne may be a way for your body to eliminate build up of harmful toxins caused by smoking. Besides that, smoking causes lung cancer, neuron damage and even causes you to become much older looking than you really are (by creating wrinkles on your skin.)

8 huge glasses of water a day. We all know that we should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Well, water not only helps in removing acne but also preventing acne. How does water help in clearing acne? Regularly drinking a lot of water can help your body flush out toxins from your body that would otherwise build up and pop out of your skin as acne.

High fiber foods Fill your plate with as many dark leafy vegetables and fruits like pineapples and oranges. Fruits and vegetables contain a lot of dietary fiber that helps regulate bowel movements enabling you to get rid of waste regularly, thereby eliminating toxins from our bodies.

Exercise, exercise, exercise There are a couple of ways how exercise can help you reduce and prevent acne. 1) By helping regulate bowel movement and 2) by removing excess oils, dirt and pollution clogged deep inside skin pores.

These natural home remedies to get rid of acne are sure to keep your acne away. Remember to be consistent throughout, whether its quitting smoking or cutting down on junkies, you must make sure to be able to take them on!
