Do-It-Yourself Blemish-Banishing Remedies

With Christmas holidays comes lots of sweet treats, which can cause a few extra blemishes. I’ve noted a few top remedies taken from my doctor-recommended book, ” Hollywood Beauty Secrets: REMEDIES to the Rescue”. 

 NOTE: Use the remedies and recipes at your own risk. And DO NOT COMBINE remedies as this may cause irritation.

1. Apply witch hazel to blemishes using a cotton swab. With the flip side of the swab apply calamine lotion. Let dry.

2. Rub a clove of garlic or raw potato onto blemishes.

3. Apply milk of magnesia to blemishes using a cotton swab. Let dry. Magnesium is an anti-bacterial that absorbs oil.

 4. Crush half an aspirin. Add a few drops of tea tree oil to make a paste and apply to blemishes.

 5. Apply raw honey to blemishes using a cotton swab. Raw honey is a quick healer and natural antibiotic. 

6. Apply ice, then hydrocortisone cream to large blemishes.

7. For an open blemish, apply witch hazel with a cotton swab. Let dry. Follow with antibiotic ointment. Witch hazel disinfects; antibiotic ointment speeds healing and prevents scarring.

8. Exfoliate (slough off skin) regularly to prevent plugged pores and blemishes. Try using Microdermabrasion Scrub or baking soda (mechanical scrub). After cleansing, while face is still wet, use a handful of baking soda to gently scrub face. Then rinse. Do not use scubs if you have rosacea. Use a cream cleanser such as Glycolic Cleanser with Marine Plant Extracts.

9. Sticking to a low-glycemic diet can help prevent blemishes and acne.  Also zinc and soy-rich foods can help prevent breakouts.

Zinc-rich foods include: eggs, liver, seafood, turkey, pork, mushrooms and milk.

Soy-rich foods include: soy milk (have a soy latte), soy yogurt, soy nuts, soybeans, soy cheese and tofu. You can also apply zinc ointment to blemishes. Dandellion root (tea) has been known to help purify the blood, which can help clear or prevent blemishes.
