Natural ways to get rid of that acne and the dark mark they leave behind.
Acne is a common skin problem that affects an estimated 85% of people. Symptoms include pimples, which can be frustrating and difficult to get rid of. While conventional treatments can be effective at getting rid of pimples, they are often associated with adverse effects, such as skin irritation and dryness.
Because of this, a lot of people have turned to natural alternatives. There are a lot of natural acne remedies out there, but only a handful are scientifically proven to help.
Here are five natural remedies that have been proven to get rid of pimples fast.
Boil neem in hot water
You can do this each time you take a bath. The juice that comes out from the neem leaves when you take a bath is extremely good to get rid of dandruff and various other skin related infection. If possible, do this on a daily basis and a month later you can see the result.
Spot treat with tea tree oil
Combine one part tea tree oil with nine parts of water. Dip a cotton swab into the mixture and apply it directly to pimples. Apply moisturizer, if desired. Repeat this process one to two times per day, as needed.
Apply Green Tea to the Skin
Steep green tea in boiling water for 3–4 minutes. Allow the tea to cool. Apply it to your face with a cotton ball or spritz it on using a spray bottle. Leave it on for 10 minutes or overnight, and then rinse your face with water. Apply 1–2 times per day, as needed. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Moisturize with aloe vera
Scrape the gel out of the aloe leaves with a spoon. Apply gel to the skin at the same time as other acne treatments. You may want to try mixing it with your other treatment, and then apply this to your skin. Or, you can apply the other acne treatment first, with the aloe gel over top. Repeat 1–2 times per day, or as desired.
