Home Remedies for Skin Acne

Home Remedies for Skin Acne

Acne problems have been haunting many of us, especially now with the pollution and lifestyle. I usually have clear skin, but then encountered with a very bad acne breakout. I tried many masks but successfully found out these best solutions. The thing is different skin types need specific care and there are no universal masks or creams that would work for all skin types. Here are some home remedies for skin acne.

 Home Remedies for Skin Acne

When you feel a pimple is starting to appear (little reddishness or a very little lump) you need to close down the pores in that certain area. Take an ice cube, wrap it in tissues till you feel comfortable with the temperature and apply it on the pimple. Do not keep the ice on a particular point for a long time. Just keep it on for as long as you are comfortable with the temperature then remove. Give a few seconds to rest then apply the ice pack again. This will close the pores and will avoid unnecessary oils from entering the pores. After this I usually apply a little amount of gel know as Fenistill (available at pharmacy in U.A.E), or you can apply a small quantity of any anti acne cream. Please pay attention to apply a little only twice, because it tends to become drier at the surrounding area of skin.
Suitable for all skin types

Note: This will not be effective once the pus forms. This will only serve the purpose at the very beginning stage.

This mask will surely work. But I will give three versions, for oily skin, for dry skin, for mixed type. Please note that this mask will not work overnight and will take a minimum of three months for noticeable changes, so have faith and patience.

For oily skin

 Home Remedies for Skin Acne
Turmeric: This needs to be pure micro granular. I usually get Turmeric sticks from kerala and powder it because the ones you get from supermarket usually have artificial color. If you don not have access to pure sticks buy high quality powder. This you can determine by the color additives. If it is a strong yellow color, please stay away from it. Pure turmeric has an orange undertone, so buy the ones which has that. The best way would be to go to ayurvedic outlets and get the sticks or powder from there. Or if you have a friend in kerala , you can ask him/her to bring you sticks (pacha manjal).
Honey: Antispectic values
Milk or Milk powder: Very little
Almond or Baby oil: Also a very little quantity
Oats
Rose Water
Lemon Juice: Very small quantity, Half a lemon squeezed would be enough.

Directions
First steam your face to open up your pores, No use applying this over closed pores. Apply this mask not too thick or not too thin. Wait for 15 minutes. Do not wait until it completely dries, Wash of as soon as certain areas dries or starts to become drier with cold water. Take care you use cold water. After washing of if there is a very visible yellow tint, use a very mild face wash just to get rid of the yellow tint. The yellow tint depends on your powdered turmeric. Store bought powder tends to leave a very yellowish tint. But pure turmeric leaves a very little yellow tint which we can live it. Now if there is just a very mild yellow tint, I advice not to use any type or soap or face wash. You can use face wash the next morning. We do this because we want it to be effective on your skin overnight.

For dry skin
