The holidays are approaching and girl, we know that you don’t want to deal with acne and facial blemishes. You need to look pretty, pristine, and perfectly adorable for all those amazing holiday parties (and photos!). That’s why we decided to put together a few quick DIY tutorials that will help you make your own natural blemish remover at home – just in time to celebrate!
1. Lemon Juice Spot Mask
The acidity of lemon is known to combat major blemishes and acne causing bacteria, and can help you achieve blemish-free skin overnight if you only have a few little spots! It’s super simple to use, too – just lightly apply fresh lemon juice on your problem spots and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Then, just rinse away and pat dry. Your skin will feel invigorated, and you’ll smell like lemonade all day long! That is precisely why it is one of our favorite natural beauty hacks.
2. Tomato Pulp Scrub
This is one of the oldest ways to create a natural blemish remover at home. All it takes is blending up a few tomatoes into a pulp, massaging the pulp onto your skin and leaving it on for 10 to 15 minutes, and then rinsing off! The acidic properties of the tomatoes help shrink and reduce pores and kill unnecessary bacteria, and the vitamin C and antioxidants help give your skin an amazing glow!
3. Tea Tree Spot Treatment
Tea tree has long been known as a natural blemish remover, and it is literally the easiest thing to use. All you have to do is apply the tea tree on your blemish/trouble spots, and done! We suggest diluting one drop of tea tree oil into a few drops of water, and testing it on a small patch of skin on your forearm first – just to make sure your skin doesn’t react to the strength of this essential oil!
4. Turmeric and Milk Face Mask
When it comes to natural skincare remedies, this turmeric mask is one of the best. Mix about a teaspoon of turmeric with enough (full-fat!) milk to form a thin paste, apply on your skin and problem areas, and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes. Wash off afterwards, and you’ll notice that your skin is a little lighter than before! The turmeric and milk combined help give your skin a healthier glow, while also packing loads of nutrients into your skin to help get blemish-free skin overnight!
