Baking Soda- This is natural remedy for acne. It’s a baking soda masks and powerful at clearing skin! Baking soda not only helps eliminate breakouts and reduces inflammation, it is also an exfoliator and helps remove dead skin cells. Because of this, it also works great to reduce any old scars or acne marks. To use it, just take a few teaspoons of baking soda and mix it with warm water until it forms a paste. Apply the paste to your skin. You may want to leave it on for only 10 to 15 minutes the first few times as it may feel powerful.

Not getting enough exercise and enough sleep is definitely affecting our skin. And it's more effective if we consider a supplement daily like Biotin; it is also recognized for promoting blood sugar stability and is an important component of nutritional health. When used daily, Biotin is a key component in maintaining healthy blood sugar and has been linked to cosmetic benefits such as reducing hair loss, repairing brittle nails and promotes healthy skin.

Good luck on your journey to clear skin!

Nice tips.. I have tried a few myself. The coconut oil massage works wonders on my skin, but it takes time to show its effect. In addition to external skin care remedies, on recommendation of one of my friends I have been consuming some collagen supplement as well which is completely organic. One can try them too at

I want to add more home remedies for skin care:
1. sardines: Among many foods which nature has offered us, sardines are popular.
Not only can sardines reduce inflammatory levels, it can also make you look younger and more beautiful.
2. Cocoa butter:
The massive benefits of cocoa butter enable it an effective booster for skin health.
As mentioned before, cocoa butter contains a valuable source of antioxidants.
In fact, antioxidants can create barrier which protect skin from dangerous factors such as bacteria, virus.
As a result, damage to skin and some discomforts such as irritation or acnes will appear with less frequency.

I use a mixture of honey and yoghurt for my face and allow it to sit for 10-12 minutes followed by gently wash. It naturally nourishes skin and revitalizes it. I also read turmeric and mint also help to keep skin healthy. Turmeric has an antibacterial property that heals skin naturally.
