Home Remedy for Acne and Pesky Pimples #3

Standard

Home Remedy #3:  The land of milk and honey.

While there is quite a bit of hub bub around dairy products causing acne, applied topically, it seems that mill can improve your outbreaks and skin tone.  The reason it is suggested that mild would cause acne is because of the extra hormones in it – but unless it is ingested, this doesn’t really do much.  For the most part, it just soothes the irritated skin, and helps tone down the redness.  Cleopatra swore on the milk baths se took!  You could also use yogurt.  The acids in it are antibacterial while the fat provides moisture, making it quite nourishing for your skin.

Directions:

Let yogurt or milk come to room temperature.  Mix 1 tablespoon of milk or yogurt thoroughly with 1 tablespoon of honey.  You can apply the mixture with a cotton pad or scoop it up with your fingers and pat it on.  Let one layer dry and apply a second layer.  Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes.  Wash your mask off and use a washcloth to gently scrub in a circular motion, getting rid of loosened dead skin.  Once, finished, moisturize as usual.
