Acne - Every Teenage Girl's Nightmare

Just when we thought we were finally free of it, "that time of the month" comes and all hell breaks loose on the canvas that is our face. A widely popular solution for the Acne problem is The Body Shop's Tea Tree Oil. Highly raved by youngsters and beauty guru alike, it's so good, our team uses it on the regular too! 

However, did you know there are actually various solutions to Acne right in your own home? It's probably good to know in the case of a sudden outbreak. In this article, let's talk about the most effective homemade recipes for that annoying little red dot. 

The most common method that most of you might have heard of is probably toothpaste. Easily found in almost every bathroom, I have found it to be a lifesaver on quite a number of occasions. Apply enough to cover your pimple and it will dry it up, sucking up any excess oil, a good yet simple fix. However, be careful about the type of toothpaste you use, some are actually harmful to the skin!

Yes we know, garlic stinks! However, that stinky little thing is really effective towards pimples as well! Rub a garlic directly on to your pimple, covering it with the juice and let it rest for 5 minutes before washing it off. It works due to the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant elements in the garlic itself.

Aloe Vera beauty products are all over the market, and with good reason. It's natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties make it great for skin care. Likewise, for pimples as well. Take a tablespoon of aloe vera gel and mix it with a few drops of lemon juice to create a paste. Apply it to the pimple and let it work its magic. 

The list of solutions goes on including things like honey, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, and more. The preference is up to you. However, the best remedy is still a good daily skincare routine.
