I am looking for a natural blemish remover.
By Elsie from Midrand
Blemishes are frustrating and also a big hit for one's self-confidence. Very common among teenagers, these are the results of fluctuating hormonal development that often end up on creating personality conflicts. Nevertheless, blemish removal will be at the back of your hand as you finish reading my article.
I have discovered some useful natural tips for blemish removal that you will probably not find anywhere else:
- Blemish removal with the use of apple cider vinegar and baking soda is the best way to go. Make a paste with baking soda and apple cider vinegar and apply it on your face. Leave it for a minute and rinse thoroughly. This is one of the best home remedies you'll try and success is ensured. Apple cider vinegar can cause skin irritation, therefore, rinse if you feel discomfort or itchiness.
- Apply calamine lotion on the affected areas for blemish removal. Calamine helps in absorbing excess oil from the skin and removes blemishes naturally.
- Mix lemon juice and honey together and apply on the blemishes for a few seconds. If used on a regular basis, this could result in complete blemish removal.
- Make a paste with strawberries and vinegar and create a mask. Apply this to your face regularly for quick results.
- Apply aloe vera on the blemishes for removal. Aloe vera juice has miraculous skin healing properties that no expensive product/s can give you.
- Apply tea tree oil on the blemishes for quick relief. It is one of the best components ever that can destroy the bacteria that produces acne and results in blemishes.
- Never ever prick or squeeze your acne or pimples; this initiates the development of blemishes that can be really difficult to treat. Leave them as it is and it will heal on its own.
- Eat lots of healthy foods, fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid sugars and sweet gourmets as much as possible.
- Wash your face with water regularly and always use medicated soap or face wash.
- Exfoliation is a must for removing dead skin and excess sebum.
- Get adequate sleep and allow your skin to breathe.
Teatree oil. I swear by teatree oil it's a cure all acne, black heads, dandruff, mulluscum, warts, bug bites, stretch marks, scars. lol Teatree oil.
I'd first try Hydrogen Peroxide three times a day using only a q-tip ONLY on the blemish, being careful not to get on the adjoining skin if possible. If you see no improvement, I'd add a single drop of dish detergent to the Peroxide.
You will likely need multiple vitamins/ minerals, such as the Dollar General brand for Hair/Skin/Nails which contains
more of what you likely have a deficiency in.
Never touch your face with your hands, clothes, pillow, upholstery, or allow anyone else to touch it, unless your hands are very clean and the other things are very clean. I use Dollar General Baby Shampoo for when I KNOW my face skin is dirty, and rinse gently in only warm water/ clean face cloth.
Never use face cloths twice before washing them. Never use face cloths to wipe countertops or tubs/sinks.
Never put hot water on the face, because God created a natural protective oil that helps prevent blemishes...UNLESS pricked or spread from some other "oozing" sore/ blemish, which is contagious and will most likely spread to whatever other area of skin it touches.
ALWAYS use a folded paper towel or toilet paper to touch a blemish for any reason.
Never apply makeup with your bare fingers unless you have JUST washed them well with soap.
Consider not using liquid makeup or powders again because I have just read that nano-particles are being placed inside them which can get into the bloodstream through the skin and cause great damage to health.
Avoid using any sort of creams, lotions, astringents, or "acne meds." Instead use a tiny amount of liquid dish detergent on a q-tip and blot dry. THEN apply a drop of Peroxide to the same place and let AIR dry. Do this for two days. If no improvement, re-think and re-examine what you are doing.
Don't take hot showers or use sponges or dirty bar soaps, or reuse dirty towels, or sleep on dirty linens. Wash them
If you have long or med. long hair, or pets you place close to your face, consider washing them too and very well, or not doing that. They won't think less of you. Both attract LOTS of dust/'harmful germs' that can cause LOTS of
Avoid lying down on a fabric cushion or arm of furniture that has not and/or cannot be properly and often sanitized. Place two paper towels down first. Avoid falling asleep on the sofa because you will not likely stay in one position and will contaminate your oily skin with the dust/harmful germs that lie hidden within the fabric.
If you have been active outside, sweaty, or working in the dirt or lawn for any time, remember the Dollar General Baby
Shampoo for cleaning it off. I use it straight, and undiluted, rinsing gently with plain cold water afterward, especially around the eyes.
If you live with someone who has blemishes, observe what they may be able to do to improve their situation and skin's
health and share this with them as well. They will love you for it, unless they like their blemishes.
Exfoliate no more than once per week, unless you have extremely oily skin. Not at all if you have dry skin.
Avoid any moisturizers that contain fragrances, alcohol, stearates, or mineral oils, or lists of chemicals. They were not intended for humans, only work for a few people who have lots of money to correct any damage they cause immediately or later on. Ten minutes per day of sun is healthy. Avoid tanning salons and lotions like the plague. The long term results and side effects are NOT worth it to your health.
Save your money, keep it simple, learn not to use soaps on your face if you can avoid it.
God bless you. :)

Two weeks ago I noticed what appeared to be a blackhead on my face which of course I picked at. I went to bed with a very small red spot and woke up with a red spot the size of a dime on my face. I am 42 yrs. old and have never had that happen to me. I immediately applied aloe and went out and bought a blemish treatment. I also applied a dab of lemon juice with a cotton ball, but nothing has helped and now I have a dark spot on my face. Any suggestions on how to remove it?
I would consult with a Dermatologist! Since you do not know what that black spot was, it might be something that needs checking into!
Agree with annie68.
Yes, please don't wait for your post to hear from us that you need to see someone about it. By then, it might be too late and damange to your face will be permanent. Good luck.
