Many of these are remedies for a single, terrifying pimple and shouldn’t be used over your whole face.

They should also not be used to excess (more than once or twice a day), or you’ll end up with some dry patches.

Everything should be in moderation.


1) Make a tiny clay mask with water (add lavender or tea tree oil for boosting) and leave it overnight. Rinse in the a.m.

Without fail, making tiny clay mask with a bit of water and a drop of one of those essential oils treats the beastly pimple overnight.

And if it’s not gone overnight, it’s gone within two or three days. Just in case you’re not sure what kind to buy. Any bentonite or cosmetic clay would work just fine and dandy, though.


2) Swab a layer of apple cider vinegar over an offensive blemish. Don’t rinse off. Repeat daily.

It is not preferable to use apple cider vinegar undiluted over your entire face, but swabbing a bit of it on a raging zit is a different story. Again, don’t go crazy and continuously treat any part of your skin with undiluted ACV.

Just once or twice a day on a single blemish is plenty. Don’t rinse it off, unless you really feel like you need to.


3) Dab a bit of lemon juice on the spot and leave on overnight.

Fresh lemon juice is best, but if you have to use bottled, that’ll do. Just please remember that lemon juice makes your skin photosensitive (meaning, the sun could do some damage), so don’t go out into the daylight with lemon juice all over your face. This is a great treatment to do at night, because there’s no sun.
