Natural Remedies for Acne!

There's nothing as annoying as waking up to fresh breakouts on your face. It will make you instantly google how to get rid of pimples on your face. I woke up to fresh breakouts on my face and It feels so weird having such after a long time. You know that time of the month when most women expect their visitors? That's my current state and that accounts for the fresh breakouts. Some women encounter other symptoms. For me, pimples are once in a while kinda-thing when I'm close to the date. 

There are one and a million different products out in the market claiming to clear pimples and blackheads. They are not created equal, the options are many and overwhelming, making it impossible to tell which one is the best. You are definitely going to be confused if you start looking for the best one to buy.

Acne can be caused by varying factors and apart from the one I mentioned above, pimples form when the oil and dead skin cells combine to form a plug that blocks the pores. Usually, your skin naturally sheds its dead cells, but if your body produces a lot of oil, those cells can get stuck in your pores according to the American Academy of Dermatology Association. There are ways to gradually reduce and get rid of pimples from your face. All the ingredients you need are right inside your kitchen and can be gotten from a drugstore. Stay with me!

Ways to Clear Get Rid of Acne from Face:

                                             Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar is made by fermenting apple cider or the unfiltered juice from pressed apples. There's no need to stress yourself about going to ferment one because you can easily get a bottle from a mall. The above picture is exactly the one I am using for my face. To use, you have to dilute with water. 1 part of apple cider vinegar, 3 parts of water. The water must be bigger than the ACV because it can cause irritation or burn the skin. You will also have to be careful about your eyes. It burns like mad. lol.
