Oily skin is prone to acne and once you have been scarred it is not easy to find your way back to a clean and clear complexion. If you are committed to clearing up your acne and getting a naturally flawless complexion then you will be able to get rid of the cure the skin ailment and wipe off the acne from your skin.

Though the market is flooded with skin care products and promises they rarely work and in most cases you realize it only when you have already spent hundreds of dollars on these products. What I learnt after my serious acne breakouts during my teens was that the best and only effective way to get rid of acne is to use home remedies.

The natural remedies that you use on your skin prevent scars from forming on your skin while ensuring that the acne clears up slowly yet effectively. There are 3 basic ingredients that you will find in your kitchen pantry that will help you to clear your skin naturally.

Baking soda is the first ingredient that you can use to clear acne breakouts. Wash your face with a soap free cleanser and then make a paste of water and baking soda and apply it on your face. Leave it for a few minutes. The soda kills the bacteria and prevents them from spreading and causing further breakouts.

Tea tree oil is the next effective remedy. This oil has properties that help you to fight the Candida bacteria and prevent the spread of the disease. Dab a cotton swab in the oil and then apply it on the skin and around the areas that are prone to breakouts. Dab the oil with the help of a cotton swab; be gentle and use a small amount.

Oatmeal is the next best thing that you can use on your skin to get rid of acne blemishes and to soak in the excess soils from your face. This is a very good exfoliating agent. Blend the oats in a blender to form a thick powder. Add a few drops of water to the oats powder and then apply it on your face and massage your face gently. This will help to get rid of the dead and dry skin and any acne scars on your skin.
