Six amazing home remedies for acne

Very few people are lucky enough to live their life without acne breakouts. However, for the most of us, acne has threatened to ruin our day more than once in our lifetimes. Acne is often called skin breakout and this results in painful and prominent pimples, black and whiteheads and skin inflammation and redness. Lots of research shows that acne can lead to extreme forms of stress in people, especially with teenagers. There are a lot of home remedies you can try out when you catch acne symptoms early. These remedies are cheaper, natural and do not harm you in any way.
Mint is a natural coolant and it also helps clean up your clogged pores. Most cases, your dead skin cells and dirt mix with the excess oil secreted and clogs up your pores. This results in acne. When you can clean up the pores regularly, you prevent acne from intensifying. You can make a paste of mint and yogurt and apply it all over skin as a mask.
Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil is becoming the favorite for skin care experts all over the world for its amazing properties. This product works great on all yeast infections and can reduce inflammation and infection in acne prone skin. You can take a few drops of diluted oil on a cotton pad, apply all over the affected skin and sleep off, letting it work its magic.
Aloe vera
Aloe vera has a lot of skin healing and soothing properties. This has been used for centuries together to treat infections and skin inflammations. You can scoop out fresh aloe vera gel and apply it to your skin. You can wash off once it is dry.
Apple cider vinegar
This is yet another very useful product to have at home. It contains lactic acid that can tone and treat red skin and inflammation. Mix equal amounts of the cider with water and dab it all over infected skin using a cotton ball. You can leave this on for 15-20 minutes before washing off. With regular use, you will certainly see great results.
Green tea
The antioxidants available in green tea can soothe your skin and can help reduce the intensity of acne. You can either wash your face with green tea infused water or apply a wet tea bag over your skin a couple of times a week for good results.
Think of medication
While you can try all these home remedies yourself, medication can also help that stubborn infection which refuses to let go of your skin. You can find a lot of over the counter and cosmetic treatment methods for acne on While home remedies make a difference, medications suggested by skin experts can give you quick results.
Acne is not a condition to feel stressed about at all. The minute you find out your skin is breaking out, start working on treatments and this way, you can prevent the condition from getting severe.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair.

I was becoming to think she was the most
