Make your own Overnight Spot Treatment

Remember when someone told you to use toothpaste as a quick resolution to that pimple that just popped up out of nowhere? That was the go-to back in the day during those high school acne flare ups. Well today there are some quick overnight spot treatments that will prove to be better than that dab of Colgate, and that won’t dry your skin out.

Yes, it is commonly known the most popular culprit for acne is caused by a buildup of bacteria and dead cells in or on the skin. Hormones and skin care also play a factor in whether your skin is clear, there are several key factors that have a direct effect on the health of your skin. Here are a few primary factors that can cause acne.  

  • overproduction of oil
  • irregular shedding of dead skin
  • hormones
  • medications
  • allergens
  • diet

DIY Spot Treatments: Naturally Made

Acne is a common skin condition that affects men and women of varying ages. It occurs when sebum, or the body’s natural oil, combine with bacteria within a clogged pore. Pimples erupt in response to white blood cells attacking the site of infection, creating pus that is indicative of whiteheads. Many commercial products contain chemicals and harsh ingredients that deteriorate skin cells, leaving the skin raw, and contributing to scarring and persistent flare-ups. Natural spot treatments may help to reduce inflammation associated with acne and eliminate unsightly blemishes without chemicals.

  • Nutmeg and Milk for Acne-prone Combination Skin

Nutmeg has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and bactericide medicinal properties that help heal the skin and reduce the appearance of pimples. Milk aids in soothing redness, supplies moisture to dry areas around the face and regulates oil production.

  • Turmeric and Coconut Oil for Acne-prone Dry Skin

It is noted that turmeric is useful in drying out acne while preventing its development and associated flaking or dryness. Coconut oil is full of vitamin E which helps diminish scars and replenish lost moisture in acne-prone dry skin.

  • Honey and Cinnamon for Acne-prone Dry Skin

Honey is a natural humectant, which means it can attract and capture moisture. It is useful if you have oily skin as it keeps skin moisturized without added oil.  It also contains high levels of antioxidants, which prevents skin damage and aging. Cinnamon, like nutmeg, has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties that are beneficial in eliminating impurities that cause acne.

Tea tree oil is also known for its incredible antibacterial properties. This powerful concentration helps diminish inflammation and scarring. Since the oil is very potent, dilute pure tea tree oil and mix with Witch Hazel (mix 10% oil with 90% toner). Apply on pimples with a cotton swab nightly.

As hard as it is to keep from popping that pimple, usually that just isn’t the way to go, because it will only make the problem worse. Applying a spot treatment to your skin gives your skin the chance to regenerate and recharge overnight.

That’s an issue when it comes to looking after your vagina, because the vagina’s delicate pH balance really doesn’t respond well to anything perfumed. Regardless of how good it smells and how pretty it looks, anything heavily perfumed is likely to disrupt your vagina’s self-cleaning processes.
