DIY Acne Spot Treatments

"Try these three time-tested, do-it-yourself solutions and watch your blemishes vanish."
The sweetest skin treatment of the bunch, honey has been used medicinally for thousands of years, dating back to 2500 BC! Noted for its strong antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, the amber nectar is great at killing off infectious bacteria in and around zits. Dab a pea-sized amount of raw, unprocessed, and unheated honey (available at any health-food store) over your blemish and leave it on for 15 minutes. Repeat this for a few days.
While aspirin is primarily taken internally, it’s also a topical acne powerhouse. Known scientifically as acetylsalicylic acid, aspirin’s chemical makeup is incredibly similar to the world’s most popular pimple zapper: Salicylic acid. Topical aspirin works to reduce the swelling and redness that come with a large pimple or cyst. Mash up one uncoated aspirin with a couple of drops of water until you form a thin, viscous paste. Apply the mixture to problem areas for five to 10 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water.
Like honey, the oil extracted from tea tree leaves is known for its incredible antibacterial properties. This powerful concentration helps diminish inflammation and scarring, and is known for its heavy, eucalyptus-like aroma. Since the oil is so potent, dilute pure tea tree oil with Witch Hazel (mix 10% oil with 90% toner). Apply on pimples with a cotton swab nightly.
