I have been having bad acne problems lately, and made the mistake of trying to squeeze them, now they have turned in to scabs on my face that are semi large. How do I make these scabs go away quickly?

Absolutely do not pick on the scabs but let them heal naturally or you may cause scarring. Here are some natural home remedies that will help heal your acne more quickly.

  • Baking Soda Paste: Put some baking soda in water to form a paste. Rub the paste on your skin gently and then rinse. This paste will exfoliate the skin and unclog your pores. Don't scrub too hard as baking soda can be abrasive.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar: Plain vinegar will work as well. Vinegar is known to kill bacteria which can cause acne. It is great for balancing your skin’s pH and will help eliminate excess oil from the skin. Use one teaspoon of vinegar in 1/4 cup of water or even stronger if you want. Put the vinegar on your skin and leave for about 10 to 15 minutes -- then rinse.
  • Tea Tree Oil: Apply it directly on each pimple. You can buy tea tree gel which is much easier to apply than the oil and so can be applied to larger areas of the skin. It is not quite as strong as the oil, however, so may not be as effective. Tea tree oil is well know as an antiseptic.
  • Aloe Vera: Put aloe vera gel directly on the skin and leave on. It is helpful in preventing scaring and helps the skin heal more quickly.
  • Colloidal Silver: Colloidal silver is a natural antibiotic. You can buy it as a spray and just spray it directly onto your skin.
