Mint for Acne
Crushed mint as an herbal acne remedy.
* Take a handful of mint leaves and crush them thoroughly with a mortar and pestle.
* Rub the leaves and juice on affected skin and leave for 5-10 minutes.
* Rinse with cold water.
* Repeat as often as desired to alleviate pain and inflammation.
Why It Works
Peppermint contains menthol which is a natural analgesic and anti-inflammatory.
Also, though a strong reaction is unlikely, do not continue this treatment if it irritates your skin.
