Goodbye filters! How to fight acne and pimples with home remedies
by Gloria Chimelu
You have probably heard a lot about acne, and pimples. I didn’t know the difference till I did some searching. Acne is just the name of the skin disorder that occurs when oil accumulates under the skin, and pimples are just symptoms of that.
Pimples are actually due to inflamed or infected
sweat glands. It could also be as a result of hormonal imbalance, that’s why it’s very common during puberty. They can be found on the
face, neck, back or chest.
Now let’s get to the main gist. I want to let you in on some very common and cheap ingredients you can use to tell that acne
1.Orange peel: Get the peel of an orange, crush it to powder, and mix it with water to form a paste, leave it on your face for 15-20 mins and rinse off.
2.Garlic: Garlic is a very powerful natural antiseptic . It kills bacteria that causes pimples. Squeeze out
juice from a few cloves and rub it on your face for 1 hour then rinse off.
3.Cucumber: Yes cucumber can be used to treat acne. Just pound a quarter or more. Make it into a paste (add little water) and leave on
for 30-45 mins. I personally like this one because it cools the skin.
4.Scent leaf: This leaf is very powerful both in and out of the kitchen. Squeeze until you obtain juice and leave on for 30 minutes then rinse.
5.Bitterleaf: Lol. I’m I serious? Yes both scent leaf and bitterleaf can be used for acne. They lighten the scars and kill bacteria in the pimples. Although using bitterleaf may cause some irritation to fresh
pimples, it is effective.
Remember these are natural remedies, you have to be consistent to see results. Give yourself a month. Apply 2-3 times a week.
You can combine ingredients, but use them on separate days.
