The unpleasant skin changes known as acne are not reserved only for the teenagers. They appear at all ages. Nature is our best friend even when it comes to beauty, so try some of these methods to fight against acne.
- Tea tree
It works against pathogenic fungi, bacteria and viruses, so it is used in cases of infectious diseases. Apply the ethereal oil directly to the acne and either leave it to dry or mix it with facial tonic and clean it thoroughly.
- Baking soda
It cleanses the face from bacteria and it removes the dead skin cells. Wash your face and then make baking soda and water paste. Use the paste to gently massage your face and then rinse with cold water.
- Jojoba oil
It has a soothing and antibacterial effect. Mix 5 drops of ethereal oil with either vegetable or olive oil, and then rub it in with gentle strokes onto the problematic parts of your skin. Let it absorb into your skin for at least 15 minutes and then wash with lukewarm water.
- Aloe Vera
It has a powerful effect on damaged skin such as burns, infections and irritations and it soothes the pain. Apply the gel directly on the acne or all over the body and let the skin absorb it completely.
Chop and mince mint leaves and mix them with oat flakes. Apply the mixture on damp face and leave it for about 20 minutes and then wash with warm water.
Mix and stir six spoons of corn flour, two spoons of honey and stiff peaks from whipped egg whites in order to get nice and nourishing cream. The honey and the whipped egg whites provide cleaning and nourishment for the skin so after rinsing with lukewarm water, your face will be fresh and your circulation will improve. Leave the mask on your face for at least 15 minutes.
