Get Rid of Acne Overnight with 7 DIY Home Remedies

Pimples usually seem to pop up overnight. This may sometimes be the case, but more often the pimple that you notice has taken weeks, even months to develop before you ever see it. Once it does appear, it might disappear in a day or two, or it could linger on for another few weeks or even months. There are many different kinds of acne pimples, or lesions. They can take the form of tiny skin-colored bumps, little white bumps, small red bumps, bigger red bumps, bumps with a black substance in them, pus-filled bumps, or even giant, painful ones. All of these are acne lesions, and all of them start out the same way: from a follicle that becomes blocked. The goal of all acne remedies mentioned on this blog is to clear up acne and prevent new acne from forming. For some teenagers, over-the-counter, or nonprescription, products will clear up their acne. All over-the-counter treatments are topical. Topical means that the product is put on the surface of the skin. Generally, the first way to treat your acne is to try nonprescription medications or home remedies. These natural remedies work in such a way that they control the amount of oil on the surface of the skin, normalize the shedding of skin cells and kill the bacteria that contribute to acne.

1. Garlic

Garlic is an effective remedy. Externally, the classic treatment is to rub acne pustules with a cut garlic clove, an effective remedy, but not one that teenage sufferers enthusiastically embrace! Alternatively, try cabbage lotion or the mixture of essential oils in an astringent base.

2. Lemon

Dab fresh lemon juice on the affected area several times a day. Leave for 5 minutes then rinse with tepid water. The acid will remove excess build up or oils and clean the pores.

3. Sandalwood

Try homemade DIY sandalwood face mask. A paste of sandalwood and turmeric powders mixed in goat’s milk is healing for the skin. Take 1/4 teaspoon turmeric and 1/2 teaspoon sandalwood powder, mix them together, and add sufficient goat’s milk to make a paste. Apply this mixture to your face. Your face will look yellow for some time, up to 5 days, but this formula is quite effective in alleviating acne.

4. Birch (Betula alba)

Birch is an unbeatable remedy for acne. Birch is practically unexcelled in the tree bark remedies for success fully treating pimples. A tea was once made by boiling the bark which eastern U.S. Indians used on the skin either as a poultice or ash to treat bums, wounds, bruises, eczema and sores. A similar tea can be made by bringing 1 quart of water to a boil, reducing the heat, adding 3 tbsp. dried bark, covering and simmering for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and steep for an additional hour. Clean muslin cloth soaked in the strained solution, lightly wrung out and then laid on the afflicted skin makes a good poultice. OR An oil made from the bark of the Birch tree is used to treat skin problems, including eczema and acne.

5. Chaste Tree (Vitex agnus-castus)

Hormonal imbalance can be an important factor in the development of acne – not just in teenagers, but also for many adults. To restore hormonal balance and help resolve problem skin, herbalists often prescribe chaste tree. This herb is more widely known for its role in the treatment of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and female reproductive issues, but can also be taken by both males and females for treating acne. It is especially useful for premenstrual acne flare ups. Chaste tree occasionally causes mild, reversible side effects, such as headache, nausea and gastrointestinal upset. For suitable dosage, contact your dermatologist or healthcare professional.

6. Make Skin Bacteria Free

Remove workout clothes and athletic uniforms immediately after wearing them. Then shower as soon as possible. Keep your athletic equipment clean, especially pads and chin straps. Wear loose-fitting workout gear made of natural fibers, such as cotton. About 15 percent of people who suffer from acne notice that it gets worse when they have been sweating a lot. The water in sweat causes the follicle to swell. The pore becomes blocked and inflamed, and blemishes can form. Change your pillowcases nightly or lay a fresh towel over your pillowcase each evening. Bacteria can grow in the fabric overnight and cause breakouts.

7. Try Comfrey

Massage comfrey ointment into any old spots to reduce scarring.
