Apply some apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is very effective in treating acne. It helps to balance the pH level of the skin and kills off the bacteria that may be causing all the trouble in the first place. Apple cider vinegar is an astringent and helps to dry the excess oil in the skin. However, do not overdo and dry out your skin too much. This could cause the sebaceous glands to overproduce in order to compensate, therefore triggering an outbreak.
Make a cinnamon and honey mask
A cinnamon and honey mask can also work wonders for acne. Cinnamon has antimicrobial properties while honey is a natural antibiotic so the combination of the two helps in keeping the skin free from acne.
Try this easy and effective mask:
- Mix two tablespoons of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder to form a paste
- Apply the mask to your face (or spot treat) and leave on for 10-15 minutes.
- Rinse off completely, and pat your face dry.
