Natural Pimple Reducers

None of us like blemishes. They are a bain to beautiful skin and a curse to many a night-out.

Being prone to such mishaps (darn those hormones) I sought counsel from a wise woman whose daughter has modeled for me on several occasions.

Her advice:

Step 1: Apply fresh lemon slice to misbehaving pore. Lemon is a drying agent and natural disinfectant. It will draw out the impurities and cleanse the pore. Good bye bacteria.

Step 2: Apply fresh potato poultice. I shredded a bit of fresh potato using a good ol’ cheese grater, and applied directly to affected area. Potato reduces inflammation. Girls- the potato saved my sanity.

Thanks Dr. Vicki for your tips!

    Thank you soooo much for sharing this tip! This has been the bane of my life of late, and I am ready to try anything. :) How long do you apply the potato poultice for?

    Lemon is one of my emergency acne erasers! After washing my face I take a lemon wedge and rub the juice ALL over my face and allow it to dry. (It stings a little until it dries.) I then drift to sleep breathing in the scent of fresh lemon and rinse my face in the morning. It reduces the redness and makes my skin feel so soft.
