  • Ginger: No matter how hard I try, when I buy fresh ginger I always end up with extra. Luckily, because ginger increases blood circulation and acts as an anti-inflammatory, it wards off blemishes and reduces acne scarring, too.
  • Lemons or Apple Cider Vinegar: The citric acid in lemons and the malic acid in vinegar have antiseptic and antibacterial properties that dry out blemishes while fending off new spots. Apple Cider Vinegar also doubles as a pH-balancing toner. Apply a drop of juice or vinegar directly to your blemish or swipe a soaked cotton pad over affected areas.
  • Allspice: Use that never-ending jar of allspice as an acne spot treatment by mixing the spice with water to form a thick paste. In addition to being antimicrobial, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom can also zap the red out of that zit.
