No one likes a bad zit day. It affects our self confidence, it ruins our mood, and well, they’re just flat out annoying. When push comes to shove and these evil little beings refuse to rest in peace, it only means it’s time to call reinforcements. We already provided you a list of our most trusted acne-killing products. But on days when you run out, or if you’re the type who would rather go au naturel, here’s a little something for you.
All you need to do is to mix three key ingredients to zap those zits from the comfort of your very home. What exactly are these lifesavers? Half a tablesplespoon of yeast, a tablespoon of lemon juice, and water. Just combine these three to form a paste, and add a few drops of water if you feel like the combination is still too hard to mix.
Yeast contains a team of acne-fighting elements such as riboflavin, pantothenic acid, biotin, and B vitamins while the splash of lemon juice helps in the drying process. The citric acid found in this fruit will also add lightening benefits as it is common for zits to leave a la Voldemort dark marks when they die.
P.S If you’re trying it out for the first time, just use a tiny amount and leave on your face for 10 minutes before rinsing it with warm water. If your skin doesn’t react badly, you can then turn it into an overnight affair the next time a zit comes knocking at your door.
