5 Effective Remedies to Eliminate Summer Acne
Here, we will jot down the top 5 remedies to tackle summer acne. Have a look!
Baking soda helps in balancing the pH levels of the skin to help maintain clear skin. Baking soda works as an exfoliator to remove dead skin cells. It has mild antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties to help you get rid of pimples and acne. It also helps in reducing acne marks. You will need 3 tsp of baking soda and 2 tsp. of water. Mix them well to make a fine paste. Apply it on your face, particularly in the affected region. Then, massage it in circular motions. Leave it on for 4 to 5 minutes and wash your face with cool water.
Aloe vera has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and antiseptic properties that protect your skin. It has a cooling effect on oily skin. Moreover, it has healing properties and helps in reducing inflammation, swelling, redness, and excess oils from the skin (which are the cause of acne). It is an antioxidant containing vitamin E, C, and zinc that will help in making your skin smooth and even.
Honey Face Mask
Honey is stuffed with natural antibiotics which can help in reducing inflammation and the size of acne. It also protects your skin from infections and scars. At first, remove the excess oils from your skin by washing it thoroughly. Then apply honey to your face. Let it stay for 25 to 30 minutes. Then gently massage using your fingertips in a circular motion. Then wash it off with cold water. This mask helps in reducing acne and prevents scars formation.
Lemons are acidic in nature which can effectively help in treating acne. Take some lemon juice, yogurt, and mix it well. Put it on your face like a mask and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then, wash it off with cold water. Lemon will help in removing the dirt from your pores. And, yogurt will exfoliate by removing dry and dead skin cells for smooth and even skin.
Tea Tree Oil
It might look strange to treat a problem caused by oil with oil. But it is effective and less harsh on your skin than chemicals like benzoyl peroxide which is usually used in acne treatment products. You can apply tea tree oil to the affected part of the face by using a cotton ball. Leave it on for 4 to 5 hours or even overnight. You can use tea tree oil with yogurt to reduce redness caused by acne.
