12 Simple Home Remedies for Dry Skin Acne


So you think that acne is ‘equal to’ oily skin? You are wrong gal! The truth is that you can’t escape the ‘attack’ even if you have dry chapped skin. But worry not. We, at Beautyglimpse, are always ready to help you out. Here are 12 simple and easy home remedies for combating dry skin acne successfully:


Home Remedies for Dry Skin Acne

1. Organic Honey

Massage your face with pure, raw organic honey at least for 15 minutes. Being a natural anti-bacterial humectant, it can banish your acne and make your dry skin supple effectively.

2. Lemon Juice

Squeeze out the juice of a fresh lemon and apply it on your acne with the help of a cotton ball. The acidic nature of the fruit will dry up the zits almost instantly without affecting your dry skin.


3. Plain Yogurt

Give your acne-full dry skin a moisturizing yogurt massage. It not only hydrates or soothes the skin, but its antibacterial properties also helps in opening up the clogged pores as well as clearing acne.

4. Potato Juice

Take a slice of potato and grate it. Now extract the juice in a bowl and apply directly onto your skin focusing on the acne. Its vitamin C content will take care of your dry skin while fighting off the acne.

5. Tomato Pulp

You can either cut a tomato into two halves and rub one of them onto your skin or mash the vegetable nicely and apply the pulp all over your face. Its acidic properties will speed up the healing of acne, while the vitamin content will provide nourishment to your dry skin.

6. Mashed Apple

Take half of an apple, discard its skin and mash it up. When applied on dry skin full of acne, this can reduce those breakouts to a great extent and make the skin softer.

7. Cucumber Paste

Make paste of a small cucumber and apply it on your entire face. Regular application of this can induce enough moisture to your rough skin and make it free from acne.

8. Crushed Garlic

Garlic has amazing anti-bacterial as well as antifungal qualities, which help in treating acne efficiently without dehydrating the skin. So, just crush a few garlic cloves and apply it on your skin regularly.

Mint Leaf Paste

9. Mint Leaf Paste

Make a paste by adding a little water to some freshly crushed mint leaves. Apply it on your zits and leave for the whole night. Your acne will go away in a few days and your dry and dull skin will look refreshed.

10. Cumin Seed Paste

You can also make a paste of cumin seeds by blending them with water and apply it on your acne. It doesn’t harm the dry skin and the breakouts get zapped at the same time.
