How to Clear Acne Fast with Home Remedies

by Sabrina Ashley

Clear skin is within the reach of most people. With regular cleaning and exfoliating, you can achieve a healthy and clear complexion. While many factors contribute to clear skin, such as heredity and diet, there are other things you can do to get beautiful skin. Follow a proper skin care regimen and use home remedies to experience fewer breakouts that can mar your complexion.

Items you will need

  • 2 tbsp. plain yogurt
  • 5 aspirin
Step 1

Boil a pot of water on the stove. Turn off the heat and lean over steam. Allow the steam to deep clean the pores for 10 minutes. The article “Acne” on the Health911 website suggests steaming as a way to open the pores and drain impurities.

Step 2

Wash face with yogurt, suggests "The Doctors Book of Home Remedies." Apply approximately 2 tbsp. of plain yogurt to your face with a cotton ball. Leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. The yogurt is a natural cleanser with lactic acid that gently exfoliates the skin by removing dead skin cells, dirt and excess oil.

Step 3

Place five aspirin tablets into a bowl. Add enough water to dissolve the aspirin and make a paste. Apply the aspirin mixture to your face with your fingers. Leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. Aspirin contains salicylic acid which helps to dry the skin, reduce oil buildup and clean out pores, according to the American Society of Dermatology.
