It can sometimes be very annoying to deal with such random changes because I guess every girl’s first reaction is to cover it up with makeup, and sometimes no amount of makeup will help you. So, how come we get these random outbreak and how can we deal with acne scars? The best answer is to always go natural! Here are a few home recipes that you can try out at home to help your skin get that perfect glow and get rid off those random outbreaks and signs of exhaustion!
1. Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a powerhouse when it comes to acting as an acne remedy. Why? It kills off the bacteria that may be causing all the trouble in the first place. It also becomes alkaline, and balances the pH of your skin, which in turn makes it harder for bacteria to thrive.
To top it off it’s an astringent, like lemon juice, and will help dry up excess oil. Keeping that in mind, don’t overdo and dry out your skin too much. This could cause the sebaceous glands overproduce to compensate, therefore triggering an outbreak.
Papaya is an essential ingredient in a lot of beauty products, it also smells good and it’s perfect for all those random pimples! Using raw papaya gets rid of all the acne and dead skin leaving it clean and smooth. All you need to do is mash up some papaya till you have enough to apply on your face. Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes, and then rinse. Your skin tends to become a bit dry after this so you might want to apply a moisturizer right after.
3. Orange paste
Oranges have always been known to be rejuvenating and acne that is caused by bacteria and extra oil or dead skin cells clogging up pores may improve with the use of an orange peel face mask. What you need to do is grind the orange peels in a blender and add a few drops of water to make a paste. Apply for 20-30 minutes and rinse.
At the end of the day, you always have to find what’s best for your skin type and of course double check on what you have allergies from, however, most of the home remedies are healthy and good for your skin, because you are never adding any hardcore chemicals nor damaging your skin.
