Age-Old DIY Extreme Beauty Treatment For Acne Reduction

Sometimes we wake up to an unexpected surprise – acne. Desperation calls for  inventing or experimenting with DIY beauty treatments.

Let us just warn that not all proposed DIY therapy sounds palatable.
 

Garlic

A new beauty trend that is taking the Internet by storm is actually an age-old beauty treatment which has women rubbing garlic cloves on their face. Beauty blogger, Farah Dhukai, uploaded a video tutorial that seemingly shows how garlic made her whitehead disappear instantly.
 

Saliva – Human’s and dog’s

Spit could treat acne? Apparently, human saliva contains anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties which have healing properties and provide immune defence. In fact, using dog saliva as medicine was practiced back in the days of ancient Egypt where the people then believed that dog saliva healed wounds quicker.

Although some studies claim that dog saliva can improve acne conditions and as much as we love our canine friends, their saliva actually contains a skin infecting bacteria called Pasteurella. When their saliva comes in contact with an open wound, it can cause severe infections.
 

Pee

In the practice of alternative medicine, urotherapy (urine therapy) was popularised by British naturopath, John W. Armstrong, in the 20th century. He believes that our urine has healing powers and it is used to cure everything from cystic acne and wrinkles to digestion and gum problems. Ew.
 

Windex

This is not an old beauty treatment but once upon a movie, there was a Greek dad who thought Windex, the window cleaner, cures just about anything. Got a pimple? Windex it, he’d say. The movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” got everyone curious and asking if one can actually put Windex on your zit?

Well, Windex contains a compound of industrial solvents, water, and rubbing alcohol. Would you put industrial chemicals on your face? We think not.

Dealing with acne is an undeniably tough experience. But the last thing anyone should do is to experiment with DIY acne treatment that we’ve read on the Internet—not to mention that some of them sound like really unpalatable options that may have extreme repercussions. As always, speak to your doctor on the safe and effective options for you. Your doctor may prescribe skin care and medical creams formulated with ingredients like salicylic acid to treat oily and acne-prone skin. They may even combine your skincare regime with oral medications, medical lasers, and even facials.
