Aspirin – Grind up one aspirin pill and make a paste with some water to apply to your pimples. This works because salicylic acid is the main ingredient in both aspirin and acne medication.
Honey – The same stuff you put in your tea can help fight acne. Dab raw honey on your spots then wash off after a few minutes. Honey fights inflammation and is antiseptic.
Tea Tree Oil – Peppermint Oil – These natural oils are anti-inflammatory, perfect for soothing those red bumps. Apply it on your pimples and leave it on overnight.
Eye Drops – It relieves your irritated, red eyes, why not your skin? Eye drops can be used on pimples to reduce redness.
Ice – Got a red and swollen pimple? Ice can immediately reduce the puffiness and cool it down.
Apple Cider Vinegar – Apple cider vinegar shares some ingredients with some acne medications. Use it as a toner to promote cell turnover and kill bacteria. ( ACV is also an excellent remedy for a sore throat)
Baking Soda – Baking soda can be used as a mild exfoliant, which means it can gently loosen the top layer of dead skin on your face and encourage cell growth. Using a paste of baking soda and water can remove excess oil from your face.
Lemon Juice – Like apple cider vinegar, lemon juice shares some qualities with acne medication. Apply some to your face and leave overnight.
Toothpaste-Toothpaste contains baking soda and hydrogen peroxide, both ingredients that can work on pimples, but toothpaste is very drying and not meant for skin. While it can dry out pimples, it can also irritate the skin.
