Home Remedies for Blemishes

Natural home remedies are really good for your skin, unfortunately it takes a longer time to see the results.

The reason for this is that the molecules of the natural foods used in home remedy are large so it is difficult for them to penetrate the skin compared to professional blemish treatment products.

Here are two home made mask recipe options you could try:

Yogurt Mask:

Plain Yogurt (Curd/Dahi) 2 tbp,
Honey 1 tsp
Whole oats/oatmeal (Porridge/Dalia) 1 tbp

Mix the above and apply on your face as a mask for 15 minutes, take a little warm water and wash your face using the oatmeal as a mild scrub. Do this once or twice a week.

The lactic acid in the yogurt is good for lightening blemishes and the honey works as an astringent as well as moisturizes the skin while the oatmeal has natural protein to promote skin growth.

Chickpea Mask:

Chickpea (gram) flour 2 tbs
Honey 1 tsp
Lemon/lime juice 1 tsp
Turmeric powder (haldi) a pinch

Mix the above with warm water and apply on your face as a mask once or twice a week for 15 minutes.

We suggest choosing one mask from above and try it for 4 to 6 weeks and then switch to the other.

Ensure you're not allergic to these ingredients and if not sure do a spot test for at least a day before applying a full facial mask.

Scars are harder to treat with home remedies.

Microdermabrasion treatment may help with reducing the scars. There are a number of products that can help for very light scars, however most scars require professional attention.

See a Dermatologist or licensed Aesthetician in a Medical spa who will analyze your skin condition and recommend a treatment suitable for your skin type.

Once again wear Sunscreen everyday as the Sun darkens the blemishes making it more difficult for you to treat them later.
