We have shortlisted a few effective home remedies for clear, flawless skin that actually work to make your skin look clear & radiant. Surprisingly, these remedies require only natural ingredients.
Read on to find out some magical skincare elixir recipes that you can concoct with just a few simple kitchen ingredients, such as lemon juice, aloe vera, and witch hazel.
DIY Home Remedies To Get Clear, Flawless Skin
Natural Home Remedy #1
Oatmeal, Lemon Juice, and Honey
Oatmeal – a skincare wizard with some great properties, particularly for the acne-prone skin. Reach out for this humble grain, when you are on the hunt for a natural exfoliant, extra oil absorber, and a clean way to get rid of blemishes.
Looking for a natural blackhead remedy? Acetic lemon is the ideal addition to your natural beauty elixir. With the presence of citric acid along with vitamin C, as well as potent antibacterial properties, only a few drops of lemon are all needed to brighten your skin. Honey acts as sweet mediator between lemon and oatmeal, concocting the two together to form an anti-inflammatory gentle exfoliant and skin brightening facemask.
The combo of all these 3 natural ingredients creates a skin care treatment that’s gentle enough to apply on sensitive skin. Combine 2-3 tablespoons of oats, 1/4 teaspoon of honey and some drops of lemon together in a bowl. Blend well and then apply on to your face. Gently rub the oats into your skin, moving your fingers in a circular motion all over your face as you exfoliate. To get flawless skin, focus a little more on the areas prone to blackheads, such as your chin and nose, any dark spots and acne scars. Let the facemask sit on your face for about 10 minutes before you wash off with lukewarm water.
DIY Remedy # 2
Due to the presence of vitamin D & its probiotics properties, yogurt can be used in natural skincare treatment. While offering moisture, it targets pesky pimples. For the DIY skin remedies, use natural plain yogurt – instead of any flavored fruit yogurt. Give some extra love to your pimples, applying and leaving it on the pimples and acne-prone areas for about 30 minutes. Wash away and be ready to be amazed by how it’ll treat your pimples and oily skin.
When you have some free time on weekends, load up on Yogurt & Honey mask. This mask has our favorite natural ingredients – honey and yogurt – the estheticians use them to improve skin elasticity and amp up skin’s protection against the environmental harmful elements.
Home Remedy # 3
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil works as an amazing natural sanitizer, anti-bacterial agent and acne fighter. It doesn’t leave your skin smelling like an antiseptic. Just put a few drops of tea tree oil directly on a clean, small cotton ball. Gently press the cotton ball over any acne breakouts or pimples. Make sure you cleanse your face before applying it.

Witch Hazel For Flawless Skin
Since long, witch hazel has been one of dermatologists’ recommended natural remedies as well as one of the skin care solutions on the go. You can rely on this effective astringent to get rid of excess oil, clear your skin pores, and decrease any acne inflammation. It is so gentle that you can apply raw on to your face as a toner. Put a few drops of witch hazel over a clean, cotton pad until it’s moist. Gently pat over your face – and see how effectively it cleanses and brightens your skin.
And when witch hazel is combined with potent moisturizing ingredients, what you get is a toner that not only that invigorates dull skin, but also leaves it looking flawless, feeling refreshed and soothed.

Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe vera gel has awesome anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it a deserving candidate for a regular spot treatment in any skincare regime. You can count on this sunburn savior in summers. Just think if it can work wonders on sunburns, will it not do some kind of magic on your pimples.
Yes, you can use it as a spot treatment. Apply it to your problem areas in between cleansing & toning, or use as an overnight facemask by applying a thin, even layer over your face before hitting your bed and counting sheep. Rinse it off in the morning with cool-cool water and do your regular morning time skincare routine.

Mix rose water with a few drops of lemon juice and apply all over your skin with a cotton ball. Reach out to your favorite Netflix show, leaving the mask on for about 30 minutes. Rinse off with cool water and apply your favorite moisturizer.

Home Remedy # 7
Turmeric & Olive Oil
Make use of Tumeric’s natural anti-inflammatory properties. No doubt, it is a solid pick for bringing back glow to your skin and evening your skin tone. But you need to keep in mind, turmeric is mighty yellow – I warn you to mix it with a thickening component so as to avoid unwittingly dyeing your skin! We prefer pairing it with extra virgin olive oil, which works to repair sun damage.
When mixing these two ingredients, add just enough turmeric powder to extra virgin olive oil to make sure you get a bold yellow color, keeping the consistency closer to an oil than a paste. Leave the mixture on as a mask for 10 to 15 minutes, and then wash thoroughly with lukewarm water.
