Home Remedies for Spot Treatment

Pesky pimples are not fun to deal with and neither are expensive acnes treatments. Here are some inexpensive and easy at home remedies you can do to treat your pimples from home.

 

Green Tea

You can either place a soaked bag of green tea over the spot for 15 minutes or use a cooled cup of tea as a face wash, this will help inflammation and bacterial growth in acne-prone skin.

 

Aspirin

Dissolve four pills in two tablespoons of water to make a paste and put the paste on your pimple to reduce its inflammation and dry it up. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.

 

Apple cider vinegar

Mix one part water with three parts apple cider vinegar and apply to the pimple with a cotton ball. This can be done multiple times a day if necessary, be sure to use a moisturizer after to avoid dry skin.

 

Aloe

Using pure aloe, use a fingertip or cotton swab to apply directly to the problem area. This reduces the redness and swelling of the pimple, similar to its effects on sunburns.

 

Toothpaste

Using a pure white toothpaste can speed up the healing process of acne. Just a dab of toothpaste on your pimple for a few hours or overnight will help dry it out. Be sure to not make this a go-to treatment as toothpaste is intended for your teeth not your skin.
