Effective Treatments of Skin Blemishes

Blemishes are spots that dot your skin due to acne, pimples, blackheads, or boils. They spoil the appearance of the skin and cause a lot of agony for anyone in love with his or her skin. Makeup can smudge and cover these blots. You can use a foundation or concealers to disguise skin blemishes but both are just temporary solutions.

Quite a number of natural remedies exist that help you deal with skin blemishes. Lemon, for example, has been used for this purpose. Either as part of a pack or by itself, lemon does reduce blemishes and at times lightens them as well. Lemon peels must be rubbed on the skin alongwith sugar. You may then wash it off after 10 minutes. Homemade face packs are also known to curtail and reduce blemishes. You can prepare a face pack that consists of gram flour, turmeric powder, lemon juice and some curd. Remember to apply this face pack on a regular basis for best results. Grated potatoes are also known to have curative properties when used to deal with blemishes. Mix the grated potatoes with a few drops of lemon juice and honey and apply this mixture to your face. Let the mixture remain on the face for say around 20 minutes. You can then wash it off with a mild gentle soap and warm water. Potato bleaches the skin and this does reduce blemishes.
