Home Remedies For Common Face Problems

     Hey guys, how are you all doing today?

     They say to overcome our problems we must face them, but as goes the joke -- what if the problem is our face?  Getting a new face is quite expensive -- so that's not really an alternative for me.  Lol!  Anyway, here are some skin treatments I learned from the Internet (and from an old issue of metro him magazine) to relieve some of the most common face problems using stuff we already have at home.


For Deep Cleansing

     Steaming the face is a great way to flush out toxins from the skin while hydrating and promoting skin turnover.  Steaming cleanses the skin of dirt that's deeply embedded in the pores thus a big help to prevent acne, pimples and blackheads.  However, this is not advisable for those with severe acne as this can trigger more acne breakout -- better consult with your dermatologist first.  But for those with mild acne cases, steaming your face can help clear up your skin.

If there's no facial steamer, you can replicate with a basin, steaming water and towel.
  • Wash your face so that your pores are free to release any impurities without dirt blocking the way.
  • Boil the water and add the optional lemon slices in a large bowl.  Make sure to place the bowl in a flat surface like a counter top or table.
  • Stand carefully over the bowl of hot water with the towel draped around your head to trap the steam.  Keep your face at a comfortable distance from the bowl but not too far that nothing happens nor too close that you hurt from the heat.  Keep your eyes closed too.
  • Steam no more than once a week and for 4 to 10 minutes maximum.  Excessive steaming can dry out the skin causing it to produce more oil and eventually lead to more breakouts.  (source: mail online)

Home Remedy for Overly Dry Skin

     Dry skin can be very uncomfortable and unpleasant.  Fight it off with something sweet -- honey.  Simply apply a smooth coat of honey to your face and wash it off with warm water after 15 minutes.  You'll be amazed how much softer and smoother you skin will become.

Home Remedy For Eye-bags

     Dark circles under the eyes are sometimes a concern for some of us specially if we don't get enough sleep.  Not everyone can have a good under-eye cream handy but you can always use the alternative that's found right inside your fridge.  Cucumber!  Lie down with cooled and thinly sliced cucumber on your eyelids for at least 30 minutes.  The water from the cucumber can help moisturize and rehydrate the skin under your eyes thus reducing dark circles and puffiness.  Another alternative are soaked teabags.

Home Remedy for Oily Face

     Specially at the time when I was not as conscious with the food I eat, my face was really oily.  Oily skin is mostly hereditary but my parents didn't have the same problem as I did.  And since I'm not adopted -- I was kinda hoping to be the son of a king from a faraway land ツ -- it probably was my diet.  What I did back then was wash my face as often as I could, drink lots of water and I eventually changed my diet.


     One simple home remedy to get rid of your oily face is cucumber pulp and lemon juice.  Simply mix these two and apply mixture to face.  Cucumber and lemon are nature's astringent and will cleanse as it will flush out excess oil off your face.  Wash thoroughly after and pat your face dry.

Bravo! great research Myke. I always do the cucumber for under the eye-bags but never try to the soaked teabags. I'll definitely try it later.

Men’s under eye cream is now one of the many must-have items that should be found in the grooming kit of men since this can help in fighting off any fatigue symptoms as well as dark circles under eyes.
