There are several things that you can use to fight acne without spending a lot of money. Many people think that fighting acne is very complex as it requires you to find the best treatment out of the long list of acne products in the market. However, getting rid of acne is actually very simple and cheap. To help you find the best treatment for your acne problems, I have listed here some of my favorite natural treatments that are not only safe to use but are also cheaper compared to over the counter acne treatment.
Papaya- Raw papaya is considered as one of the best facial masks. It contains an enzyme that can help you avoid acne scars and lighten dark spots. It can lift up dead skin cells and eliminate excess oil from the surface of your skin and inside your pores. It is an excellent natural acne treatment that can be used together with anti-acne ingredients such as honey and tea tree oil.
Apple Cider Vinegar- like papaya, apple cider vinegar contains acids that can help you eliminate the excess oil from your pores. It also helps soften dead skin cells and rejuvenate your skin by allowing new cells to grow. The problem with apple cider vinegar is that it may actually sting when you apply it to your blemishes. One trick to minimize this is to dilute it with water or honey.
Lemon and Egg Whites- used as a facial mask, this can help you remove dead skin cells, dissolve hardened oil and minimize your pores. When applying the mask on your face, you need to wash your face with using warm water. This will help loosen up dead skin cells that plugs your pores. To make the mask, Whip the eggs until it has a meringue like texture then gradually add lemon, just like when you are baking. Do not add baking powder. If you want it to be a little stiff, you can add brown sugar instead. Apply and leave on for 20 to 30 minutes. Then, gently rinse it off with cold water. This will help you minimize your pores.
Turmeric- Turmeric is not only good for the brain and your internal organs but also contains compounds that can help you fight acne. It has strong anti-bacterial properties that can help you reduce redness, swelling and generally the size of your blemishes.
These are just some of the most cost effective ways to get rid of acne. Be creative. Do your experiment and you will be surprised of how you can get rid of acne in so many ways.
