Acne is the most common cause of concern during adolescence.



Here I have listed some simple remedies to deal with acne-



Mint- Crushed mint as an herbal remedy for acne.



Crush a handful of mint leaves. Rub these crushed leaves and juice on affected skin and leave it for 5-10 minutes. When this dries, rinse it off with cold water. You can repeat this as often as desired. Since mint contains menthol it helps to alleviate pain and inflammation.



If skin irritation occurs then discontinue the use.


Oatmeal- Cooked oatmeal as a home remedy for acne



     Cook plain oatmeal. Add some honey to this and mix it thoroughly. Let this preparation cool and then apply it evenly on the face. Avoid the area around the eyes and lips. Leave it on for 10-20minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water. Oatmeal cleanses the pores by absorbing all the extra oil and exfoliating the skin. Honey acts as a natural skin toner.



If you leave on this mask for too long then it will become difficult to take it off. So wash it off immediately after 20minutes.
