Two Natural Acne Treatments That Work

Regular breakouts and acne can leave you turning to harsh chemicals and expensive scrubs. But these aren’t the best solutions. All-natural, homemade remedies are the best treatments for acne in the long-term. This is because most store bought treatments don’t only help reduce symptoms but can eventually cause severe problems and side effects.

Natural solutions make you step back and really figure out what’s going on with your skin, and also how to work with it.

Here are two super-simple ways to treat your acne the “green” way

Yoghurt, honey and cinnamon mask

Honey and cinnamon both pack impressive antibiotic properties, while yoghurt soothes irritation and reduces redness.

You’ll need:
1/2 cup unsweetened full fat yoghurt
2 tbsp raw honey
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Small bowl

What to do:
In a small bowl, combine the ingredients to form a paste.
Apply the mask to clean skin and leave it on for 10 minutes.
Wash the mask off with warm water and pat dry.

Zap those pimples

Honey and lemon toner

Both honey and lemons are antibiotic, so this is a powerful combination to help deep-clean your pores and treat any blemishes you may have to prevent future breakouts.

You’ll need:
1/2 lemon
2 tbsp raw honey
Small bowl

What to do:
Squeeze the lemon juice into a small bowl. Add in the honey, then stir to combine.
With clean hands, carefully apply the tone to your face, gently massaging it in as you go.
Leave the toner on your skin for five minutes, then gently rinse it off with cool water.

Love your beautiful skin!
