dont_pop_itDuring our regular skin care routines, fighting the common pimple is something that we all will experience.

Many over-the-counter products use chemicals that are difficult to pronounce, and can do more harm than good, often drying up your skin. 

So many of our clients have asked for home DIY tips and tricks to achieve clear skin naturally, we hope this helps!

All Natural Skin Care is Possible At Home.

Althoughwe are certainly happy to have multiple products out there for people who want them, the truth is that tyou don't need to bathe your skin in a chemical goop just to treat a pimple. Nature holds a solution to this annoying, and unsightly problem.

Amazingly, something as easy to find as lemon juice will stop a pimple is its tracks! Here is the definitive list of home remedies that will keep your face clear, and beautiful.

  • Cinnamon oil has anti-microbial properties. Considering that pimples often emerge from inside the pores of the skin, using cinnamon with a dab of honey to make a paste, is a successful cure.

  • Turmeric powder with a little coconut oil also has germ fighting capabilities. It works best if you apply it to a pimple before bed, then rinsing it off once you awaken.

  • Apple cider vinegar has long been known for its antiseptic properties. It is important to use caution while using it. Diluting it with some water can help to keep from damaging sensitive skin types. It has also been shown to aid in the removal of acne scars, and be applied by using a cotton ball.

  • Tomato isn't just for spaghetti sauce anymore. Applying small amounts of tomato pulp to a pimple will dry out pores, and tighten them. They contain antioxidants, and aid in decreasing inflammation. Do not to use tomato pulp for a pimple more than twice a day, because overuse can cause extreme dryness of the skin.

These simple ingredients are easily found in most kitchens, affordable, and used by many consumers who are seeking to naturally combat these tiny skin offenders. If you have any other suggestions, please leave them in the comments!
