Why would you spend hundreds of dollars on cosmetic products that promise to rid your skin of acne, pimples and blackheads, when they don't even work? There are literally thousands of acne related products out there on the market, but none of them actually work the way they're supposed to! And trust me when I say I have tried countless creams, gels, washes and masks from the most expensive to the cheapest and in the end…they're all the same.
Stop wasting your money on these products because you can do the same thing at home. Pure, natural ingredients are best when it comes to your skin, hair and nails so just rummaging through your fridge and cupboards could save you hundreds! Here are some of my favorite acne home remedies.
