Blemishes can occur as skin discoloration or dark spots, generally caused by acne breakouts. They can also be attributed to factors like hormonal imbalance, genetics, improper skin care, poor diet, sun exposure and aging.

Pimples, pustules, blackheads and whiteheads can also be categorized as blemishes caused by clogged pores. The unsightly blemishes can appear anywhere on the body but are most common on the face, neck, shoulders and back.

The market is flooded with products to battle blemishes, but they are often expensive and chemical-based. Instead, you can turn to Mother Nature to get rid of blemishes and pamper your skin at the same time.


home remedies for blemishes

Here are the top 10 home remedies for blemishes.

1. Lemon Juice

Lemon juice works as an excellent skin-lightening home remedy to reduce dark spots and hyperpigmentation due to its bleaching effect.

Its high citric acid content exfoliates the skin, removes excess oil and kills acne-causing bacteria. It also minimizes the appearance of large pores and smoothes the skin.

  • Simply apply fresh lemon juice on your skin and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing it off. Do this daily for a month or so.
  • Alternatively, combine one-quarter teaspoon each of lemon juice and organic honey. Rub it on your skin and wash it off after 15 to 20 minutes. Repeat a few times a week for one month or until you see improvement.
  • You can also mix together equal parts of lemon juice and tomato juice. For extra exfoliation, add one tablespoon of oatmeal (optional). Apply the mixture on the affected area. Leave it on for about 15 minutes, and then rinse it off. Do this daily, or three or four times a week for about a month or until you get encouraging results.

2. Tomato Juice

Being rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, tomato juice is excellent for creating glowing and blemish-free skin. Plus, it helps shrink large pores and cure acne due to its astringent properties. Tomatoes are also good for reducing suntan due to their high lycopene content.

  1. Massage your skin with tomato pulp.
  2. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, and then rinse it off with cool water.
  3. Follow this simple routine daily for several weeks or until you get the desired results.

To enjoy clear and healthy skin, also include fresh tomatoes in your daily diet.

3. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is rich in alpha hydroxy acids and hence lightens dark spots and blemishes. In addition, it helps balance the skin’s pH levels, reduces excess oils and opens clogged pores.

Due to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, apple cider vinegar also fights acne breakouts.

  1. Mix one part organic apple cider vinegar and three parts water. If it seems too strong, you can increase the amount of water.
  2. Dip a cotton ball in this solution and dab it on the affected area.
  3. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, and then wash it off.
  4. Use two or three times a day until the blemish fades away.

4. Potato

Potato juice contains starch that helps reduce pigmentation. It also diminishes dark circles under eyes.

  2. Soak a cotton ball in the juice and apply it on your skin.
  3. Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing it off.
  4. Do this daily for one month or until you are satisfied with the results.

5. Fuller’s Earth

Fuller’s earth, also known as multani mitti, is great for exfoliating your skin to remove dead skin cells and get rid of blemishes. It also absorbs excess oil and has a skin-lightening effect.

  • Add sufficient rose water, green tea, cucumber juice, lemon juice or just plain water to two tablespoons of fuller’s earth to make a smooth paste. Apply it on your skin, let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes, and then rinse it off.
  • You can also mix one teaspoon each of tomato juice and sandalwood powder in two teaspoons of fuller’s earth to make a smooth paste. Spread it evenly on your skin, and leave it on for 20 minutes before rinsing it off.

Use either of these remedies once or twice a week until you get the desired results.

6. Aloe Vera

The succulent aloe vera gel contains polysaccharides that stimulate the growth of new skin cells and help heal scars and blemishes.

Also, it has anti-inflammatory properties that benefit in natural acne treatment.

  • Extract fresh aloe vera gel from an aloe leaf and apply it on your skin. Leave it on until it dries completely before washing it off. Repeat daily for about a month or more.
  • You can also create a mixture of two tablespoons of aloe vera gel and one teaspoon each of lemon juice and sugar. Gently rub it on your skin, let it sit for 15 minutes and then rinse it off. Do this two or three times a week until you get rid of the blemishes.

  1. I have just started to apply this remedy on my face today. I used lemon. What do you advice to rinse it off my face after 15-20 mins, cold, lukewarm or hot water ? Thanks and regards.

      1. Never ever wash your face with cold water or hot. As for cold water will dry your skin that will produce more oil which cause more acne and it also does from hot water. Always use luke water which is very comfortable on your skin and helps it

  2. Can i use lime to replace lemon ?After using dis mixture and washin it off ,can i still apply my normal cream?pls i need ur reply.tank u!

  3. I’m so tired to use different products to cure my pimples and acne marks. I’m so frustrated. Thanks for the tips, I’ll gonna try to use the tomato juice later.

    1. Ive tried alot of remedies, and to me what works best and EASY is to drink alot of plain water. Drink about 8 glasses per day, it helps to clear toxins from your body and replenishes everything! It did work, with some help of whisked white egg. apply it twice a week or so, put it layer by layer. 3-4 layers should be enough! before putting another layer, you should wait for it to dry. After 3-4 layers, wash it off with cold water so as to not cook the white egg on your face after 20 mins! I hope this helps.

  4. I hv a oily face so I got every skin problems related to oily. ..I have tried using lemon and I have seen a great change from my first use specially on the pimples…hope it helps u all too..

  5. I used a paste which was made from Turmeric powder, organic honey, lemon/lime, organic apple cider vinegar and aloe Vera and 2 vitamin e capsules. 1 teaspoon of each ingredients would be enough if not then increase according to your needs.

    I applied the paste once a day for 30 minutes for 6 weeks. Can be done in the morning or in the evening and wash your face with warm water. Afterward You can use your favourite cream or lotion. It helped me a lot to get rid of all my blemishes.

    Why waste your money buying expensive products full of chemicals and you won’t see any result. These remedies are safer, affordable and it does work.

  6. Thank you very much. I like the information from the Top Ten Home Remedies. More power to you and God Bless.

  11. Can I apply any cream after using lemon or tomato on my face. And pls.can you give a suggestion what kind of cream should I use. Tnx pls.reply

  12. I have learned that blemishes will come back if you use too much of an astringent. If the blemishes get dried up then the body will secrete more oils to keep the skin moist and then here comes the pimples again because of the increased oils. This is so true!!

  13. I like all advice that i read hear .
