Tea tree oil has been known to fight acne, clear up insect bites, minor burns etc. However, you should avoid putting it directly on your skin. Dilute a tablespoon of tea tree oil in 9 parts of water then apply it to the affected regions with the help of a cotton swab.
This particular remedy has been part of the Indian bride beauty regime for generations. Turmeric helps soothe inflamed skin regions, brighten your skin and even helps you achieve the pre-wedding glow every bride should have! There are turmeric masks available in the market that help lessen acne too.
Toothpaste can help reduce acne faster than the average face creams available at drugstores. All you have to do is cover the zit with toothpaste and wash it the next the morning. The silica in the toothpaste will help flatten your pimple overnight.
This particular tip may sound a little absurd but it works wonders. All you have to do is take a really hot washcloth and press down on the affected area. Then place an ice cube on the skin. Alternate between the hot washcloth and the ice cube a few times. This absurd remedy reduces the life of a pimple significantly.
Aloe Vera is the most effective remedy for sunburn and acne. The reason is that it clears out pimples without drying them out. Dab some Aloe Vera extract a few times a day on your zits to get rid of them.
All the things you should avoid include junk food, chocolaty desserts, oily foods etc. and try not to experiment with dermatological treatments at this point and stick to natural remedies instead. Avoid laser treatments and hair removal treatments right before your wedding. Because as Murphy’s law states “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.”
