Crazy Remedies You Never Thought Could Treat Acne

If you thought treating acne with toothpaste was peculiar, think again! There are a host of other things that you would have never believed could treat acne. Here is a list of some of the craziest remedies that can help you get those ugly zits off your face permanently

Banana Peels

Banana peels are especially great for treating acne because of the drying properties of the fruit. Start by rubbing a banana peel on your skin for about 10-15 minutes and leave it to dry. What this ideally does is, it dries out the zit and makes the healing process a faster one. Due to its rich nutrients and potassium content, banana peels can help bring down the inflammation of the skin and also kill bacteria.


This may immediately sound counter intuitive to you. How could something as oily and greasy as bacon be used on the face to treat a zit? Though extremely odd, it has been proven time and again that by rubbing a bacon strip on a pimple, it can help bring source of the pimple to the head, thereby making it easier to treat.


Your morning spit can actually help combat that pimple on your face. Not only can it help reduce the inflammation, but the acidity in saliva contains anti-fungal properties that can suffocate the bacteria in the skin. Try it out first thing in the morning and though it may take a couple of days before you actually see the pimple retreating, saliva is definitely a sure-shot method of treating a painful pimple.

Egg Whites

During a bad acne outbreak, break a couple of eggs and use the egg whites to sooth really severe cases of painful acne. Apply it on the face like a mask and mix a teaspoon of honey or lemon juice if you can’t stand the smell. Eggs have been considered effective skin care remedies since time immemorial. Not only can it help with acne, but it also particularly effective when you want to slow down the aging process of your face.
