Some homemade remedies for acne involve the use of natural ingredients made into concoctions such as cinnamon and honey mask and honey and yogurt mask. Ingredients such as tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar, papaya, lemon and aloe vera are common home remedies for acne-prone skin.
Tea tree oil is a natural anti-inflammatory and can help fight acne when diluted with water and applied on the skin using cotton balls. For sensitive skin, tea tree oil can be diluted with aloe vera gel to help clear acne. Rubbing the inside of a fresh banana peel on the affected area also helps clear acne.
Facial masks made from natural ingredients such as lemon and yogurt, oatmeal and honey and sugar and olive oil are also used to help contain acne outbreaks.
