How to Make Your Own Acne Treatment
- Use cold water. Fill an empty 1 gallon jug with water and put it in the freezer for 2 hours. Pour the water into a bowl or sink, then dip your face in the water for 25 seconds (5 dips for 5 seconds each). Repeat a few times every day.
- Make a soap mixture. Put a bar of soap in a small container. Boil a cup of water and pour it over the soap in the container. Close the container and keep it shut for at least 2-3 hours or until the soap dissolves. Wash your face normally and make sure it's dry and not oily. Get the mix that is in your container and spread it around your face; be generous while applying. Let it dry. Then wash your face out very gently using a face sponge. Do this 1 to 2 times a day, but no more than two because then your skin might over-dry and peel.
- Create a face mask using a solution of one finely crushed aspirin tablet per tablespoon of cold cream. Spread over your face, wait 3-5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
- Mix 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, 2 teaspoons of lime juice, 1/2 cup of apple sauce, and 1/4 cup of ranch dressing. You should have created a thick creamy substance.
- Rub on your face, neck, and back in full motion circles that will allow the cream to get into your pores.
- Let this sit on your face for around 10 minutes.
- Wash off with a washcloth drenched in ice cold water.
- Repeat 1-2 times a day, until your zits are gone!
- Mix baking soda and water for a good cream to dry up the pimples sooner.
- Make a strong acne solution by diluting 50% apple cider vinegar with 50% clean pure water. Once acne has improved, keep it at bay with a milder solution of 20% apple cider vinegar and 80% water.
- Do not use cheap vinegar. Apple cider vinegar is about $3-4 for a large bottle at any supermarket (more at health food stores). It will last months.
- Put on mint toothpaste to help dry up pimples. Wear it overnight and wash it off the next morning. This is a classic home treatment.
- Use hair conditioner. Not many people would expect this, but it works very well to clean out and NOT irritate the skin. Rub it on any area affected by acne. If the area with conditioner on it gets itchy, or for any reason you are compelled to touch the area, refrain. Do not touch it. Leave the conditioner on the affected area for approximately a half an hour. Then, when the chosen time is up, wipe it off gently.
- Don't go in a chlorinated swimming pool, very often. It dries out your skin and makes your acne red and shows your zits even more!
- Make sure you don't scratch or pop your pimples! You'll just end up with scars that won't make you look your very best!
