Home remedies for acne are simple to use and quite effective. While there are a number of facial masks that can do you a lot of good, there are various other homemade acne treatments available too.

Egg Yolk Mask

    Egg yolks are not just excellent sources of protein but they are also rich in vitamin A. It must be noted that vitamin A and its derivatives are used to treat acne and acne scarring as well. An egg yolk mask is easy to use and helps treat not just acne but acne scars as well.

    How to make? Take the egg yolk of a single egg and whip it up.

    How to use? Apply the egg yolk mask on your face for 20 minutes. Once it dries, wash off and pat your skin dry. Apply it once a week.

    Carrot Mask

      Carrot is an excellent source of vitamin C and antioxidants. Both Vitamin C and antioxidants are essential for health skin. This is the reason why carrot mask works well in treating acne. The best part is that it can be used for all skin types.

      How to make? To make the carrot mask you will need fresh carrots. Take 500 grams of carrots and 5 grams of flour. Thoroughly wash the carrots and then grind them to make a paste. Now mix 5 grams of flour into this paste. In case you feel that the carrot paste is sticky enough, you may not use flour.

      How to use? Apply the carrot mask to cleansed skin. Leave on for ten minutes. Rinse off and pat your skin dry. Use the carrot mask daily till the time you achieve the desired results. Alternatively, you can also use fresh carrot juice to wash your face to treat acne.

      Baking Soda Mask

        This is one of the best homemade masks that you can use to treat acne. However, baking soda mask is not for every skin type. A baking soda mask may trigger side effects in case it does not suit your skin. But in case it does work for your skin, it can deliver amazing results.

        How to make? Mix baking soda and water to make a paste that can be easily applied on to your skin. Do not confuse baking soda for baking powder. Make sure that the consistency of the paste is medium.

        How to use? Wash your face with a cleanser and pat your skin dry. Now, apply the baking soda mask on your skin and let it dry for some time. If your skin begins to itch, wash off immediately. Once the mask dries, rinse off with water. Your skin will feel fresh and soft.

        Aspirin Mask For Acne

                          Everyone has differing skin composition, differing diets, we live in different climates and some of us live in urban areas with industrial pollutants in the air. All of these affect our skin, and cause annoying pimples. You should try home solutions as per your skin type only!

                        • roni W  - roni W
                          I have tried almost every product on the market for my acne-prone skin. The ONLY PRODUCT that made me notice a significant reduction of acne was the Shielo Complexion Scrub.

                          This scrub did leave my face feeling less oily and cleaner.

                          I use it approximately 2-3 times per week after cleansing and it has yet to dry my face out. It's not perfect, but I think it works about as well as some of the prescription treatments that i've used.

                          If you have severe acne, I highly recommend it.
                        • kayla  - NEED Treatment for my face
                          from i was a little child i started seen acne on my face and i was even tease at school about my face, it is not BAD as it use to and i am trying to find some treatment for my face, back and chest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I HATE MY SKIN AS A LITTLE GIRL i am 13 please help me to find some treatment PLEASE PLEASE :angry-red:
                        • Syd's Mama  - Kayla I have the solution for your face!
                          I was surfing the web for a cure as well for my 13 year old and I ran across this solution - Head & Shoulders shampoo (original-classic clean). Simply rub affected area with shampoo and leave on. It worked without the same day. She had one new pimple and later that day we were able to see the difference. She normally scars after her pimples go away and this time no scars and it's only been 48 hours. If it is all over your face I would try washing your face as you do with any other soap and then treat the affected area as described above.

                          Good luck!

                          try some acne cream having retinol and vitamin C or use clay mask for some time. Dark spots will fade gradually.

                        • Celine  - Treatment For Acne
                          These are really good facial masks for acne. It is also advised to refrain from using makeup and other products in order to get rid of acne. Plus, you can also consult a dermatologist in order to treat your pimples and blemishes. You can also see a lot of guides online.
                        • Penny S. Corkery  - Apple Cider Vinegar
                          I will try this exfoliating mask. Hope it works to reduce inflammation. Daily I dab a puff of Apple Cider Vinegar on my pimples and leave it for 10 minutes before washing the face. This has incredibly reduced my zits. Your mask must help with redness of skin.
