You can spend thousands of dollars on skincare products. You can spend years buying the highest quality products, going to dermatologists, and getting fancy facials and still struggle with your skin. It happens to everyone. And sometimes, the best cure to skin issues is going the natural route.
Often that natural route in easy, cheap, and found right in the comfort of your own home- without having to spend tons of money on products. And although it’s nice to have a few high-end skincare products, sometimes all you need is some useful natural remedies:
1Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil is an oil of many uses. It smells fantastic and is excellent in essential oil diffusers, but it’s also great for your skin. Many skincare products contain tea tree oil for its natural acne-treating properties. You can also apply tea tree oil directly to acne, but be sure to dilute it with water first as tea tree can be too intense for sensitive skin.
Aloe vera does more for your skin than just treating sunburn! Aloe vera can help with a myriad of skin problems, like acne. Aloe vera is naturally calming, so it’s great for inflammation. The best form of aloe vera is straight from the plant, so investing in an aloe vera plant is a great way to go.
Coconut oil can be used for cooking, cleaning, dental hygiene, and skincare. Many people use coconut oil as a natural makeup remover, but some people also find it to be an excellent moisturizer.
Honey is just as good for your skin as it tastes! Honey is often used in homemade facemasks for its moisturizing properties but has also been used for treating breakouts because of its antibacterial properties.
This one might sound weird, but aspirin can be used topically to relieve skin issues! Applying aspirin directly to acne can be used to reduce swelling and redness. Make it into a paste by adding a crushed capsule to a little bit of water for a homemade acne spot treatment.
6Apple cider vinegar
Although ACV can be controversial because of its sharp acidity, some people have found great results from it. It can be used on your skin in the form of a spot treatment, toner, or face wash. It’s always just essential to dilute ACV with water, so you’re not applying the harsh acidity directly to your skin.
