Gentle Homemade Acne Treatments
Ice Cubes – Ice cubes may cool down your drinks but some say that they can also treat acne. It is believed that applying ice cubes on pimples can help reduce redness and prevent further inflammation. If you want your pimples to be less noticeable, you can give regular ice cube therapy a try.
Oatmeal Mask – To soothe your face, apply an oatmeal mask. All you need to do is grind a handful of oats in a blender until they become powdery. Mix the oatmeal powder with a little water and you have your oatmeal facial mask. Apply the mask to your face and lay down and relax while the oatmeal mask soothes your skin.
White Potato – This homemade acne treatment is very easy to make. All you need to do is slice a raw white potato and place a slice on top of your pimples. Let it stay for about 5 to 7 minutes. It is said that this can help bring down swelling and inflammation and help in the healing of acne.
Baking Soda Facial Mask – This facial mask is very gentle and would have a lesser chance of irritating your skin. All you need to do is mix a small amount of baking soda into a paste and then the mask is ready to be applied to your face. Leave the mask on until it dries out and rinse off with water. If you have a very sensitive skin and you think that a baking soda facial mask would cause irritation, you can dab the baking soda paste on each of your pimples. Just as what one would do with the mask, let the dabs dry and rinse off with water.
Egg Yolk Facial Mask – Many have sworn to the effectiveness of the egg yolk facial mask against acne. Of course, if you are allergic to eggs, don’t try this acne treatment. How do you go about making this mask? Just beat an egg yolk and apply it to your face using a clean cosmetic brush or an unused and clean child’s paintbrush. Leave the yolk mask for about 10 minutes and rinse off with water. Do this once a day for a week for optimum results!
