There are lots of products in the market today that claim they have the best cure for acne - creams, soaps, ointments, facial washes. What people fail to consider is that there are home remedies that can address their pimple problems.

Following are some acne home remedies that you can try:

1. Honey and Cinnamon Mask

Raw honey is said to have anti-bacterial properties that can get rid of pimple-causing bacteria on your skin.

To use it: combine honey and cinnamon and mix until you create a paste. Apply it on your face before you go to sleep and leave it on overnight. In the morning, wash your face with mild soap and water.

2. Toothpaste Remedy

Toothpaste is said to have certain chemical components that dries out acne and promote faster healing.

To use it: clean your face with mild facial wash and dab a small amount of toothpaste on the pimple. Some would opt to leave the toothpaste for about 5 minutes before rinsing with water, while some would apply the toothpaste at night and leave it on until morning.

3. Raw Papaya Juice

Papaya has essential acids that help prevent oil production on the face. As oil can be one of the triggers of acne formation, papaya is said to be a good anti-pimple solution, plus it can also reduce swelling on the affected area.

To use it: simply apply the raw papaya juice on the affected area and rinse the face after 3-5 minutes.

4. Yogurt

More popular as a health food rather than acne treatment, yogurt, aside from promoting good digestion, can also prevent the growth of bacteria on skin.

To use it: simply apply the yogurt on your face like a facial mask and leave it on for about 10 minutes, and then rinse off with mild soap and water.

These are just of the easy home acne remedies available. For more information, check the links in the Sources and related links section below.
