Fast Acne Clearing Tips
Toothpaste. A zit is no match for a small dab of toothpaste, which is very powerful when left on the blemish over-night. This method works the best and often you will wake up the next day with no trace of the blemish. I've never seen any acne treatment over-the-counter or otherwise that works as well as toothpaste.
Homemade Zit mask. This is my own personal recipe that I have formed after years of acne and skin problems. To make this over-night zit clearing remedy, you simply add one teaspoon of honey, one teaspoon of lemon juice, one tablespoon of toothpaste and the juice blended up from a half a cucumber. Another ingredient that is optional is grape juice and you would add one tablespoon of grape juice to the mixture. You apply this remedy with a cloth or cotton ball after mixing well and applying on affected area. Do not rinse this off till the morning, at which point you will most likely need to add a moisturizer to the area you treated to prevent over-drying of the skin.
Salacylic acid. This harsh chemical is found in many over-the-counter acne treatments as the main ingredient, but it dries the skin out, which is why a moisturizer should be used as a follow-up treatment right after you use it on skin. You can get it at any pharmacy or drug store and it usually comes in pads as acne cleansing pads, which use salacylic acid as the main ingredient.
Tomato juice. The acid in tomato juice will help to dry out pimples and kill the bacteria deep in the skins pores, it also helps in removing impurities from the skin and exfoliating the top layer of skin, which is necessary if you want to get rid of a zit quickly.
Lemon juice. A common remedy used in fighting acne and one that I use to get rid of zits over-night is lemon juice. Lemon juice may dry the skin and cause peeling, but it's important to use lemon juice during this process as it helps to clear impurities from the skin while it exfoliates the skin.
Aspirin. Some say that aspirin works better at removing acne then most over-the-counter treatments and it's even more cost effective then conventional treatments because you don't have to use as much. Mix a teaspoon of aspirin in 1/3 cup of water and take a cotton ball and dab a small amount on the affected area. You then leave on the skin for about 30 minutes before rinsing completely.
Tea tree oil. Not only does Tea tree oil help heal the skin but it extracts impurities from the skin during the process.
Honey. One tablespoon of honey added to the zit or acne once daily for about 20 minutes should help the skin heal and boost cell turnover. Always do this step after exfoliating or drying the skin out. Honey also helps heal acne scars.
Rose water. Rose petals have a lot of anti-oxidants that help heal skin. You will need something to heal your skin after you have dried it out with the aspirin, salacylic acid, toothpaste, lemon juice or alcohol. To make this remedy, you simply add 6 rose pedals to a half cup of water and mix until mixture turns a reddish color. You then apply the mixture with a cotton ball and let stand on skin for about 20 minutes before rinsing, but make sure this step is after exfoliating and drying the skin out.
Green Tea cubes. Ices cubes made from green tea aren't unheard of, but they do take the swelling down and heal the skin naturally. To make this remedy, you simply make green tea like you would normally, you then pour the green tea into ice trays and use one cube to rub over affected area twice daily for about 15 minutes in a circular motion.
Drink Plenty of Water. Many people that suffer from acne also suffer from inflammation of the skin, which is caused by a number of things but drinking water is one way to decrease inflammation and another plus is by drinking water, you are boosting skin cell turnover, which helps your skin replace itself faster. This is key when clearing up a zit quickly.
