News flash, Kendall Jenner is just like us. Well okay, not exactly. But she did reveal in a video on her website that she used to have really bad acne herself. “It completely ruined my self-esteem. I wouldn't even look at people when I talked to them.” We can all relate to that, can’t we?
It’s only natural to face a nasty pimple or two now and then. And here at The 15th District, we’re always in favour of affordable and effective home remedies as opposed to spending big bucks on harsh creams and gels.
Recently, she shared a recipe for a DIY acne cream that she swears by on her app. We are absolutely loving it because it’s not only incredibly easy, but the ingredients are so accessible and affordable!
Mix the following and apply on acne spots:
- one teaspoon raw honey
- half teaspoon lemon juice
- half teaspoon baking soda
Why does this concoction work? Well, the acids found in the lemon juice will gently exfoliate any dead cells from your skin while the baking soda absorbs excess oil from the surface. And the honey will help to sooth inflamed skin around the acne as well as kill any bacteria on your skin that could cause more pimples.
So, the next time a nasty zit decides to rear its ugly head, whip up this easy acne cream and apply it on to the spot (after you’ve washed your face of course). Leave it on for about 15 to 20 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water.
If you suffer from frequent breakouts, you could definitely learn a thing or two from girls who never breakout. Whatever you do, this is the one thing you should NEVER do to your pimples (besides squeezing).
