7 Basic Household Items That Treat Acne
When an unsightly pimple is making a grand entrance right on the surface of your face, you can always use household items that treat acne.
All of these items are inexpensive, easily available and require little to no preparation beforehand.
To keep your complexion looking clean and fresh, here are a few household items that treat acne.
One of the many household items that treat acne is Aspirin.
Aspirin is great for reducing the size and redness of the pimple.
You can simply crush the pill, but I like to use sterile scissors to scrap the Aspirin into a fine dust.
Then you mix it with as little water as possible.
You should be looking for a thick paste-like consistency that is not overly diluted with water.
Finally, apply the Aspirin paste onto your pimple and let it air dry.
I’ve heard about salt being used as a household quick fix for pimples.
I’m not entirely sure it works but it’s worth mentioning.
Mix it with a small amount of water, then apply the salt solution directly on top of your pimple.
Be careful not to use it over large amounts of skin or on places where it is not necessary – the salt will dry up your skin, causing an overproduction of oil, which will then create blocked pores and more pimples.
Anyways, the salt mixture should dry up your pimple after a few hours and your pimple will be significantly smaller.
