Home Acne Remedies You Already Have In The House

Try These Home Acne Remedies When In A Pinch

Maybe you only suffer from the occasional acne breakout so you don't really have an arsenal of acne fighting skin care products. Or perhaps you didn't have time to run to the store and you ran out of your best acne fighters just as a huge ugly pimple beast reared its head. When you're in a pinch, these home acne remedies can do the trick.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Don't use it regularly, but in a pinch hydrogen peroxide can help beat the pimple blues. Apply it to the blemish every half hour for two hours and then once before you go to bed. It should take care of the pimple rather quickly. If your pimple has a white or yellow head, pop it gently (I know, goes against everything you're taught) before applying the peroxide.


It burns like heck, but it works wonders. If you have stubborn pimples or deep blemishes that just won't go away apply horseradish to them before going to bed. The ingredients in horseradish work to cleans the skin and kill the acne bacteria. Some report it works better than many expensive store-bought acne treatments.


Toothpaste doesn't just clean your teeth, it can also get rid of a pimple in a pinch. Apply a glob of toothpaste to an unsightly blemish and let it dry overnight. Rinse it off in the morning and you should notice an immediate improvement.

Apple Cider Vinegar

It might not smell the best but it really works wonders as a topical acne treatment. Wash your face with a mild facial wash and then dab on the apple cider vinegar. It can clear your complexion in no time.

The next time you find yourself with a nasty blemish and no acne products in sight, try one of the above home acne remedies. You may be surprised at how well they work.
