Natural Remedies for Acne: Lemon Juice, Tea-Tree Oil and Aqueous Cream
Before going to bed, bathe or shower and shampoo. Next, apply lemon juice over your face (this will itch for a minute or two).
Rub in a small amount of pure tea-tree oil. Then, apply a thick layer of aqueous cream to your face and leave on overnight, lying on your back if you must. Or, after about half an hour or so, rub the cream in.
Help this and other remedies along by eating three kiwifruit and about 3/4 cup of raw carrots daily.
Natural Remedies for Acne: Oatmeal, Vinegar, Raspberries, Egg, Sea Salt
Pour some oatmeal into a small bowl. Mash up some raspberries and mix them with about a teaspoon of sea salt and the oatmeal. Add about two tablespoons of vinegar and one egg and mix with a spoon until it makes a pasty mix. Wash your face with an exfoliating scrub (such as apricot scrub) or exfoliate with a loofah. Steam your face and then apply the mixture thickly. Leave on for about 30 minutes or until the mixture is somewhat dry and starts to crumble off. Rinse with cold water.
