How To Get Rid Of Acne With 23 Topical Remedies
Prepare the following sourdough:
Mix 100 g of flour – preferably use wheat, barley or spelt flour, 1 tbsp. of wheat bran and add enough warm milk to form a paste. Mix very well and make sure the paste is thick enough (but not too thick like a bread dough) so it can stay on your face and not fall off. Leave the paste at room temperature for 4 hours. Before applying the paste, wash your face gently with warm water and pat dry. Apply the sourdough paste on your face and keep it on for 30-40 minutes. Then wash off the paste with warm water.
In the summer, do regular sunbathing between the hours of 10am to noon. Put on your face some fresh leaves of burdock, sunflower, or pumpkin while bathing. Then wash your face with cool water. If you live in a coastal area, swimming in the ocean or sea is strongly recommended after the sunbathing with the leaves.
Before bedtime, on your face apply a cotton towel, soaked in water in which lemon balm (Melissa officinalis), soapwort (SaponariaOfficinalis),and black elder (Sambucusnigra) was boiled – in equal portions.
Take 100 g of fresh leaves (or dry in case you can’t find fresh) of smoke tree (Rhuscotinu) and put them in 1 L of boiling water. Strain the liquid. Take a small towel and soak it in the liquid. Squeeze the towel well, and apply it as a compress onto your face. Keep it on for 10-15 minutes. You can repeat the procedure 2-3 times a day. In addition, right after the compress, the pimples have to be smeared with the following infusion:
10 g of pot marigold – flowers (Calendula officinalis) are soaked in 50 g of olive oil. Leave it to soak well for at least one week before usage. At the same time while doing the two topical procedures listed above, you can take the following infusion internally:
2 full tbsps.ofnettle – leaves, are added to 400 g of boiling water. Leave it to soak well for 2 hours. Strain the liquid, and drink 4 times a day before eating.
