    aspirin
      A combination of aspirin and honey can instantly reduce the effects of acne and help remove the redness that comes from skin irritation. Aspirin reduces swelling and redness caused by acne, while honey is an antibiotic that can disinfect your pores (which caused the acne in the first place).
      Try it at home: Clean your skin thoroughly with toner to open your pores. In a separate bowl, crush a single aspirin and then add a very small amount of toner to create a thick paste. Apply the paste directly to the acne spots and let it sit for five minutes. When five minutes are up, wash off the paste and then apply a small dab of honey to the blemishes. Wash the honey off after 10 minutes, and your skin will be clearer.

      Toothpaste

        Hopefully, you already use toothpaste to keep your teeth clean and healthy, but what you may not know is that white toothpaste can also reduce acne, remove bug bites, and help to eliminate the effects of itchy skin rashes.
        Try it at home: Apply white toothpaste (not gel) directly to your bug bites or acne, allow it to dry and then go to sleep. In the morning, wash off the toothpaste.

        Lemon and Sugar

        lemons
          Lemons are a natural antiseptic, making them excellent for removing dirt and bacteria from pores. This helps make skin less oily, which over time can get rid of acne. Sugar acts as an exfoliant and opens up pores so the lemons can penetrate the skin.
          Try it at home: Cut a lemon in half, sprinkle sugar on one of the exposed halves and then apply that to your face each night to remove dead skin. This will get rid of blackheads and acne while making skin look more radiant.

          Sea Salt

            Like lemon, sea salt is a natural antiseptic, which explains why many people find their skin clears up after being at the beach. You don’t need to spend an afternoon splashing in the ocean to reap the benefits of saltwater—you can do so at home by applying a mixture of sea salt and water directly to your skin to reduce acne, age spots, and wrinkles.
            Try it at home: Add one tablespoon of sea salt to a 16-ounce spray bottle of warm water. Spray the combination onto a small applicator—such as a washcloth—and then let the salt do its work.

            What are you waiting for? Go raid your medicine cabinet and your kitchen and get to work on your skin.
