Acne is most common among teenagers, which tells us why there are so many gazillion products in the market made solely for the eradication or control of this skin problem.
What most people don´t realize is that acne can be resolved within the home using basic kitchen raw ingredients. There are many home remedies to cure acne that are cheap and effective.
Oat meal is a popular choice, the fiber in the oats suck out the oil in affected areas. The process will eliminate excess oil and does not necessarily dries like peeling.
Egg white is also an effective ingredient that is used to dry out pimples. All you have to do is use the white as a mask for a few minutes before rinsing it with warm water. You can use the yellow of the egg as a moisturizer.
Acne can also be fought with green tea, just place the used tea bag on the area inflamed with a pimple to reduce swelling. Green Tea has natural antioxidants which helps kill bacteria in the pimple.
You can also use papaya, just mix a mash of it with honey for added moisture and add lemon for additional acidity. This is a popular facial therapy for those with acne problems.
You don´t have to spend big bucks to get over your acne dilemma. There is so much more in the kitchen which is more effective than most products advertised on television. Most of the ingredient that I have mentioned above cost only a few dollars and can be found in most grocery stores and supermarkets.
The plus factor of it is not the fact that you could save a lot of money, but that because it´s natural, it won´t have any side effect to your skin.
