ACV is a miracle drug, if we may call it that, when it comes to body acne! It balances out the acid-base level of our skin, which helps avert the breakouts. ACV is anti-inflammatory, and also an antibacterial agent. You can eat it with honey and some water or apply it on your acne area, but do so only after diluting it with water.

When it comes to stubborn acne, tea tree oil is the ultimate agent. It is a brilliant anti-septic, which when applied to the skin kills all acne-associated bacteria, treating the breakouts evenly. If this is the first time that you are using tea tree oil, dilute it with a few drops of virgin olive oil.

3. Green tea

Steep a sachet of green tea in some hot water. Then wait until the water cools down. Now pour it into some kind of a spray bottle. Add some more water, say a little less than half a cup. After your bath, jet this ‘watered down’ green tea on the affected area. Remember to pat it dry.

4. Baking soda

Prepare a scrub using a tablespoon of baking soda and some water, and apply it on your body. Do not, however, apply it more than a couple of times a week. Baking soda has a high concentration of base, and therefore, can be too coarse for people with sensitive skin. So diluting it with some water is necessary.

5. Honey and turmeric

If you ask me, what is the best you have got on this list, I would say, a honey-turmeric mask! Honey is a natural moisturizer, and turmeric controls sebum production, which prevents formation of scars. So mix two tablespoons of honey with a tablespoon of turmeric and voila! Your acne should hit the road!

6. Milk of magnesia

Just dab a tiny portion of Milk of magnesia onto your skin once a day for a month. It will aid you to balance out the pH level of your body, and also regulate the temperature of the skin. This remedy also unclogs the pores, plus lowers oil and sebum production.

7. Sea cucumber

In the gel form, sea cucumber helps rid any kind of scar, including stretch marks. If you don’t find it at your local pharmacist, you can purchase it online. Go for the ones manufactured in Indonesia.

8. Aspirin

Apart from being a painkiller, Aspirin also works as a fantastic remedy for both acne and dandruff. Crush 4 tablets into a powdered form, and then mix it with distilled water and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Apply the paste to your affected skin daily.

9. Oatmeal

Mix a tablespoon of honey with a cup of cooked oatmeal. Also squeeze in the juice of half a lemon. Rub the paste on the affected area. Keep it for 30-odd minutes, and then, wash it off. Oatmeal cleanses the skin and exfoliates it, absorbing the excess oil.

10. Toothpaste

Believe it or not! The most cost effective on this list, toothpaste, rids body acne, without damaging your skin.  Apply toothpaste on the affected area and keep it overnight. Trust me, it works wonders!

The vitamin C in orange makes its peel one of the best home remedies for body acne. Let the sun kiss the orange peels to dry them well. Then, grind them until they form a fine powder. Prepare a paste with water as the base, and apply it twice a week.

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster.” This Isaac Asimov line, embraces my love for writing in the finest and most desperate way that it is and should be! I was tormented by the earnestness of the written word not very early in my journey. But once smitten, it has helped me devour life twice over; savoring the moment and indulging in its memories. As a flâneuse, I wander to understand the intricacies of human relationships. Realizing that, they are just different manifestations of the same feeling of love, has been my greatest learning. I seek to share its opulence through the words I type.
