No matter how well we take care of our skin, it’s inevitable that we won’t always have a flawless canvas.
After all, we’re human.
We eat junk food on occasions when we know we shouldn’t, we stay up late watching that last episode on Netflix, and we have to cap off the celebratory night with just one more drink.
Despite our weak spots, these tips will help you get rid of blemishes on the face easily.
1. WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS
Lemon juice is a powerful source in achieving blemish-free skin. It acts as a natural skin- lightening agent that helps with hyperpigmentation and dark spots.
Lemon juice can be combined with honey and/or oatmeal for a facial mask that soothes and exfoliates to get glowing skin. Honey, lemon juice, and turmeric is a quick to get rid of blemishes as well.
2. A TONER FROM MOTHER EARTH
Apple cider vinegar is another great ingredient to add to your skincare routine.
Its anti-inflammatory properties help the pH balance of skin and opens clogged pores. It can reduce acne breakouts as well as lighten dark spots. Apple cider vinegar is suitable for different skin types.
To get rid of blemishes, dilute one part ACV with three parts warm water and soak the mixture in a cotton pad. Leave on for 10-15 minutes.
Make sure you buy ACV that is “from the mother” meaning fully organic, so you reap the benefits.
3. ZAP BLACKHEADS
And of course we want zero blackheads. Following a proper skincare regime is essential in blemish-free skin.
Cleansing morning and night, using a toner, and properly hydrating the skin inside and out is a great start on how to get rid of blemishes.
But we all know even the most diligent of skincare routines can still result in pesky blackheads. Oil buildup is the culprit but at-home treatments like rubbing aloe vera and lemon on the targeted area is how to get rid of blemishes altogether.
Also remember not to pick at skin, especially blackheads, as that will only make problems worse.
4. USE SHEA BUTTER TO NOURISH YOUR SKIN
Not only will shea butter work to nourish your skin but it’ll also help reduce the appearance of scars and blemishes with the vitamin A it contains.
It also works to keep your skin looking smoother and younger.
For best results, use shea butter (the organic kind is best) every night, massaging it deep into the target areas so your skin completely absorbs it.
Leave it on when you go to bed so it can absorb further and work its magic.
