    All the above remedies work for sure, trust me they do. It takes long but patience and consistency is the key. The best one is using LEMON JUICE “Apply it all over your face and neck keep it for 15-20 minutes to get well soaked, then most importantly rinse it with LUKEWARM water”. IT WORKS because lukewarm water keeps your skin pores neutral. Do it twice daily and always PAT DRY your face with a clean towel, dont rub towel over your face-its the last thing u wnna do.
    If you do it properly, you will notice serious clearness in your skin in about 2 weeks inshaAllah. STAY HEALTHY & BE BEAUTIFUL.

  6. Go all Natural…stay away from any products with chemicals. The Less you use the better. I started using Sea Salt Water religiously everynight. This ultimately cured my acne. Currently I use water only everynight to wash my face. Everynight I take a cotton pad, soak it in cold water and rub it all over my face. Then I melt an entire ice cube on my face including my lips. After its almost dry I apply diluted Tea Tree Oil with a soft tissue to my all areas of my face and immediately apply a mixture of Aloe Vera Juice and Aloe Vera Gel to help seal in the Tea Tree Oil. If my face is really dry, Ill add a few drops of Jojoba Oil to the mix. I massage a small amount of either Coconut Oil or Olive Oil on any wrinkles and I also dab Hydrogen Peroxide under my eyes. Last, I spot treat any noticeable pimples with a Sulphur or Clay mask and sleep with it on overnight. In the mornings, I do not wash my face, instead I simply take a tissue and soak it in cold water and then use it all over my face. Afterwards I apply moisturizer with SPF. I do not wear heavy makeup just some cover up and a tinted chapstick, also with SPF. Once a week, I steam my face and apply a homemade gelatin peel to treat blackheads. Then I wash my face with a gentle Tea Tree Oil Cleanser and apply either a Raw Honey mask or an Egg White Mask. I occasionally exfoliate with cooked Oatmeal and apply Lemon Juice to any dark spots.

  9. Hi everyone,
    I have an awesome remedy for pimples or zits that pop out from your skin suddenly. I know they are irritating, and that is why I have posted my comment.
    Take fuller’s earth (multani mitti) one pinch
    Add water 2 drops
    mix with fingers and apply on your zit at night
    Go to sleep
    When you will wake up, the zit will have diminished
    But for ensuring its full removal, take a towel and hot water and compress your zit with hot water

    If you have oily skin,I have an excellent remedy
    take a spray bottle
    take 2 drops lemon and 10 drops water
    spray it whenever your face seems oily
    wipe with a tissue
    Remember, the ratio should be 2 parts lemon juice, 10 parts water
