Home Remedy for Acne and Pesky Pimples #8

Home Remedy #8:  Mix strawberries and honey

Honey and strawberries make a home remedy for acne that sounds pretty “sweet” and it combines two things that are used commonly in pricey, often time’s harsh, facial scrubs and cleansers.  Strawberries may seem random, but consider the fact that they are high in salicylic acid.  Salicylic acid is a primary ingredient in many commercial acne treatments.  It encourages the epidermis to shed its cells more readily, opening up clogged pores, and neutralizing bacteria.  It also shrinks up the pores a bit, which prevents them form clogging up in the future and encourages new cell growth.  Honey also works against bacteria that may be behind your acne, and is an anti-inflammatory.

Directions:

Wash your face with water and pat dry.  Rinse 3 strawberries and mash them up well but not over mashed and runny.  Add 2 teaspoons of honey to the strawberries and blend together well.  Apply this to your face and let the mixture sit for 20 minutes.  Rinse off completely with warm water, pat dry and moisturize.  Use twice a week for least one month.

Good Luck ~ Team Beauti
