Are you one of those who’s been searching and trying a lot of methods to kill acne?

I have personally met a lot of people who try too hard to get rid of their acne.

Some use fingernails, a few take advantage of pins, and a rare breed of over smart creatures use acne needles and scissors to fend off acne.

Trust me, acne is a sensitive issue, and it needs to be dealt with sensitivity.

You can’t use a sword for a needle— it only reflects the kind of a personality you have.

So, before you use outrageous methods to remove that tiny spot on your skin, keep one thing in mind— you are only going to worsen your condition.

You don’t have to war against acne when you can have peaceful dialogues without aggravating your condition.

Home remedies are those peaceful dialogues which steadily do their work having you not to suffer from the deteriorating state.

So, let’s check out some of the effective, safer, and easily accessible home remedies which could provide relief from acne in an overnight.


As our ancestors have used it for centuries, I am surely recommending this to you.


As sweet as it tastes, it poses major danger to microbes, bacterias, etc. due to its antimicrobial & antibacterial properties.

When raw honey is applied on the acne, the cleansing and healing properties of honey reduce the swollen skin and destroy the acne-creating bacteria.

Also, there are two types of Acne— Inflamed and the non-inflamed one.

The inflamed acne is the result of bacterial presence.

With anti-inflammatory (production of hydrogen peroxide) and antibacterial effect together, Honey can relieve the skin from Inflammation.

It results in healthy skin— less prone to acne.

Getting used to it: Use soft swabs like cotton balls to apply honey on the acne directly. Let it soak in the skin for 30 to 45 minutes. Wash it softly with the water at skin temperature.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Since childhood, I have always appreciated the taste and fragrance of Vinegar.

But of late, I have come to know about its probable effect on the acne.

Generally, white or apple— both the kinds of vinegar are applied on the skin to maintain the pH level of the skin.

Dry skin has earned the notoriety for activating the bacteria and infection which cause inflammation, redness, swelling, and acne.

With Vinegar applied correctly on the skin, the flaky and dry skin gains the appropriate oil which staves off the bacterial presence responsible for crunchy skin layer.

Getting used to it: Never use the undiluted vinegar as it may scald your skin. Once you dilute the solution, dip cotton balls and trace it over the acne zone. Keeping it overnight might bring happy changes to your skin the next morning.

Green tea

Getting popular among health-conscious mass, Green Tea is definitely one of the top contenders for showcasing maximum health benefits.

Antimicrobial property is one such therapeutic benefit which Green Tea submits to its users.

With two of the essential compounds— catechins and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), Green Tea ensures fighting with the oxidative stress which affects the health of the skin.

The stated compounds also reduce the skin-inflammation which cause cyst and acne.

We know that skin is the largest organ in the body and it deserves meticulous care.

Green tea with antioxidant properties— depreciates the free radicals— the radicals which harm the development of skin.

Probably, this is the reason why Green Tea is better known as anti-aging potion as it protects the skin from bacterial attack.

Getting used to it: Of course, you can’t apply the hot green tea on your acne-affected skin. You can rub green tea ice-cubes or cool it down to use as a face wash to dispose of the acne.
