To control acne with home remedies, care for the skin daily using noncomedogenic products, and treat inflammation and breakouts as needed using aspirin, honey or lemons. Maintaining a daily routine for skin care helps control acne breakouts. Most treatments for acne can be completed in about 10 minutes.
- Care for the skin daily
Wash the affected areas of the body once or twice daily using a non-drying cleanser, and moisturize the skin daily. Purchase moisturizers and other cosmetic products that are noncomedogenic.
- Apply the desired home remedies
Lemons are used to treat acne by applying a small amount of lemon juice to the affected area before bed, and washing the area upon waking. To use aspirin to control acne, add a crushed aspirin tablet to several drops of water and several drops of honey, and apply the mixture to the affected area. Wash the aspirin mixture off after 10 minutes. Honey may be used alone to treat acne by applying a small amount of honey to the affected area. Wash the honey off after 10 minutes.
- Maintain a routine for skin care
Maintain a routine to treat acne. For instance, change pillowcases daily, and apply home remedies one to two times daily.
