Natural Remedy for Zits

  1. I got this from Daily Candy today, I thought I would share for those that do not receive it:

    at-home zit cream from Karen Axmaker, our favorite facialist at Sally Hershberger Face Place.

    cotton swab
    hydrogen peroxide
    ½ oz. powered oatmeal
    ½ T. fresh lemon juice
    ¼ c. egg whites
    3 drops honey
    1. Dab cotton swab in hydrogen peroxide and cleanse the infected area. (This will keep the infection from spreading.)
    2. Mix everything else in a small bowl.
    3. Cover blemish with mixture and leave on for twenty minutes.
    4. Rinse with warm water.
    5. Store leftovers in fridge for up to one week. (Do not eat.) Apply twice daily until pimple disappears

    I'm going to try it...since I'm pregnant I have a few around my chin.
  2. does this work?
  3. Thanks for sharing!!! I'm going to try that. I usually use toothpaste, the white-pasty kind... i prefer colgate w/ baking soda. I place a tiny dab on the blemish. It totally dries it up the next day.
  4. Interesting!
    I wouldn't suggest it since you're pregnant right now, but I use the Borba products. I have the jellybeans and the drink mixes and I actually noticed that my skin is a lot clearer. I didn't have much of a problem anyway thank goodness, so it does work even if you just have minor "that time of the month" problems.
    A couple places have it now..Nordstroms and Sephora's sites both have them.
  5. Tea trea oil works also
  6. Really? Even though its all natural products?

    If anyone tries it, let me know....tree oil does work well, I had forgotten.
  7. Toothpaste does wonders if you leave it on overnight!
  8. I'm on board with the toothpaste... can't get any easier! I used Oxy or something and my husband laughed when it didn't work for me. He told me to try toothpaste and I had a clear face by the next morning. Wonderful stuff! (and convenient...)
  9. I have heard this toothpaste thing before - I am def going to try it now - thanks ladies:flowers:
  10. im using egg white and lemon mask to get rid of the post blemish red mark~ works wonder!
    i've been using it every night for a week now, and 70% of the red marks are gone!!!
    MIX 1 tbs egg white + 1 tbs lemon juice, leave it on for 10 mins, then rinse off!!!
  11. I've been using Jurlique's Moor Purifying Mask for my zits. Although its a mask, I used it as a pimple cream. It really works! Just leave it on until it gets dry, rinse or removed with a damp towel & you'll see the difference.
