Baking soda is a fairly common household ingredient with many skin benefiting properties. It absorbs oil very well and oil is a contributing factor in the formation of pimples. It also exfoliates your skin and removes dead cells.


Simply take a few spoons of baking soda powder and mix it with a little water. You want a medium consistency, so adjust accordingly. Apply this paste to your face and leave it on for about fifteen to twenty minutes. Rinse off with warm water afterwards. Do this a few times a week.


  1. Apple Cider Vinegar


Apple cider vinegar is an excellent antimicrobial agent because of its acidic nature. It absorbs the excess oil, restores the pH balance on your skin and makes it difficult for bacteria to colonize your face. In short, it makes the conditions favourable to acne formation disappear.


The application is easy: mix 1 part of the vinegar with 4 parts of water. Dip a cotton ball or a cloth in this mixture and apply it to the face. Leave it for fifteen minutes and wash off with warm water afterwards. For the best results, do it a few times a day.


  1. Oatmeal


It might sound odd, but oatmeal can reduce the number of pimples you have on your face. It does this by absorbing the extra oil and cleaning out the blocked pores, while also removing dead cells.


To make use of oatmeal this way, mix a little lemon juice and honey with a cup of oats. Mix this well and apply it to the face. Let it rest for about half an hour. Wash with warm water afterwards. Do this a few times a week.
