Two Easy Tricks For Getting Rid Of Pesky Acne For Your First Day Of High School

by Mae Ferguson

High school is supposed to be the best experience of your young life, but not when the stress from it all made you break out with a pimple. Luckily, there are a couple different effective ways you can treat your acne problem with ingredients found in your home. Using natural ingredients is good for your skin, so not only will you treat the acne, but you will be able to walk into your first day of high school with confidence.

Honey And Cinnamon

Honey is always a go-to ingredient for self-healing. This natural ingredient is full of its own antibiotic agents that will wash away and kill the bacteria on your skin that cause pimples to form. Cinnamon will stop the germs on your skin from forming because it is a natural anti-microbial. These two ingredients combined make one of the best homemade acne treatments.

To use this method, you will need one teaspoon of cinnamon and two tablespoons of honey.

Step 1: Rinse your face of any excess dirt with lukewarm water and pat dry.

Step 2: Mix the honey and the cinnamon together until it forms a thick and sticky paste.

Step 3: Apply the solution to your face like a mask and let it sit for ten minutes before you rinse thoroughly.

This method won't just remove bacteria and germs, it will also leave your face feeling soft and fresh.

Egg Whites

Egg whites are full of healthy proteins and vitamins that will nourish your skin and soak up the excess oils that may be causing your acne. Some oils are great for the skin, however, too much of it will clog your pores and causes pimples to form. The proteins and vitamins will also help reduce the appearance of acne scars on the face, so it's a double win for you.

Step 1: Separate three eggs whites and mix them in a small bowl until they become frothy.

Step 2: Let that sit while you are rinsing excess dirt away from your face and pat dry.

Step 3: Dip your fingertip into the egg whites and apply a very thin layer to your face, avoiding your eyes and mouth.

Step 4: Let the first layer dry for a few minutes before applying another layer.

Step 5: Repeat step four until you have four layers of egg white on your face.

Step 6: When you have finished applying the last layer, let the egg whites sit for about ten minutes or until completely dry and then rinse the mask away using lukewarm water.

When you are rinsing this mask off, be sure not to use hot water. The hot water will cause the egg to cook on your face, making it harder to remove.

Everyone has suffered from acne at one point in their life, it's not just you. By using one of the methods listed above, you will be able to treat the acne in a safe and effective way and make your skin stronger and healthier in the process.
