How to Remove Blemishes the Natural Way

List: Posted: 08/31/11

Facial blemishes can be both frustrating and unsightly.  While there are tons of chemical-laden products available from your dermatologist that promise to help you get rid of them, there are many natural tips that can be even more effective.  It is also important to remember that good health and proper skin care are the best way to prevent the formation of blemishes.

Exfoliate With Baking Soda


One way to help prevent and heal blemishes is to exfoliate using baking soda.  This will help clear clogged pores so that your skin will be blemish free.  You can also use plain drugstore toothpaste as a surprisingly good spot treatment to help alleviate blemishes.  Apply it to a blemish and allow it to sit overnight until it is dry.  Wash off with warm water in the morning.


Try Hydrogen Peroxide


A great nightly regimen to help get rid of blemishes is to soak a cotton ball in hydrogen peroxide and apply it to your face each night.  Lemon juice is also a great treatment and can be used as a cleanser, or as a spot treatment.

Give Clay a Chance


Making a mask of clay with carrot and orange juice can help you significantly.  Simply blend the ingredients and apply the mask.  Leave it on until it dries, which will take about 10 minutes, and then gently rinse with water.  Keep in mind that you cannot talk, smile or move your face while the mask is hardening.

These remedies can be excellent for helping to get rid of blemishes, as well as to prevent new ones from forming.  You never have to use chemicals on your skin and natural ways are always the healthier way to help alleviate blemishes.
