Two tried and tested home remedies to help you get better skin.
A For Acne
Aloe Vera has a gamut of health and beauty benefits. The gel of this plant can be used with other things to fight acne, but it is equally effective when used alone. Our advice would be to use the natural aloe vera gel directly extracted from the plant rather than the ones available in the shops (to avoid chemicals or additives). Apart from being soothing, but it also works as an anti-inflammatory, decreasing redness and swelling. It also has the goodness of antibacterial property.
Enough aloe vera gel to treat the problem areas.
Just cut a small piece of one aloe vera leaf and peel away the outer flesh to expose the gel. Then gently massage the exposed gel directly on the concerned area. Wait for 30 mins to allow gel soak into the skin. Then wash off your face with cold water and pat dry.
Meet Mr Potato Head
Potato is not just good to eat but is known to tame your acne. This tuber is rich in potassium, sulphur, phosphorus, and chloride. All these components are an expert in banishing bothersome blemishes. Plus, they have antioxidants to nourish your skin and promote healthy growth of new cells. Who knew potatoes could do so much?
1 potato (it's that easy)
Wash your face with water and pat almost dry, leaving it a bit damp. Then grate 1 raw potato. Rub the pulp and juice of the freshly grated potato on your skin for a few minutes in a circular motion. Wait for 15-30 minutes for it to dry and then rinse off completely with warm water.
