Acne is a skin condition which affects millions upon millions of people around the globe. In fact, one in three people have some sort of acne at some time in their life. So the problem is massive, and luckily the solutions are rather abundant.
One problem with the solutions, however, and that’s that medical acne treatments can cost an arm and a leg. You shouldn’t have to put your home up for sale in Florida just to be able to afford acne treatments.
Thankfully, there are many holistic acne remedies you can try for little money. When it comes to keeping your skin clear, some home cures are just as effective as dermatologist-prescribed cures, and an added bonus is that you won’t experience any negative side effects.
By using regular oatmeal and making a paste with milk, you can create a cleansing mask to put on your face at nights for mere pennies. Smear the mask on your face and allow it to set for 30 minutes before rinsing off.
Rubbing alcohol and cotton
With a cheap remedy like this, you can afford your acne medication and still check out some cars for sale in Florida or that HDTV you’ve had your eye on. Basically, those Oxy pads are just alcohol, so with a bottle of 50-cent rubbing alcohol and a simple cotton ball, you can create cleansing pads and cleanse your face of oil any time you want.
Lemon juice and plain yogurt
Add about 3 tablespoons of lemon juice to around 4 ounces of plain yogurt and you’ve just made a very natural and inexpensive facial cream that will help keep acne at bay.
These three remedies not only work to help treat acne, but they’re all inexpensive and easy to apply.
