Pimple Blaster

Pimple suddenly pop up and threaten to ruin your day? I've bragged and boasted about how much I adore honey, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice individually so today's post is especially thrilling. Here is a recipe for a quick and powerful zit buster made using the 3 kitchen staples.

What you need:
An equal amount of lemon juice and apple cider vinegar (depending on how much you want to make, a small squirt should do)
Honey

Mix the lemon juice and vinegar together and apply directly onto the clean, affected area. Once it's on the pimple apply a small amount of honey.

The lemon juice and vinegar will help to kill the bacteria and reduce the inflammation and redness while the honey forms a barricade from the elements. Honey is also antibacterial.

If you wish to sleep with this on your face and you're not a back sleeper I would suggest putting a band aid over the top just to protect your pillowcases, although honey does dry so it won't stay sticky all night.

  1. I never would have thought that 3 things that I have in my pantry could be used for something like it! Interesting!

    I have Lupus and Fibromyalgia. Although, I may end up being diagnosed with MS as well. Being green doesn't make it all go away but I do believe that it's the safest way to go. I have a lot of chemical sensitivities and being green really helps. If you're interested I also have a blog dealing with my illnesses http://bydls.onsugar.com
