Ack, ZITS! Hate ’em, loathe ’em—need ’em to be GONE forever! Luckily, there are some quick and easy DIY recipes that’ll help keep those nasty li’l boogers at bay!

[F]oxymoron / CC by 2.0

Anti-Zit Face Mask
1 Tbsp. cruelty-free baking soda
1-2 Tbsp. filtered water

  • Mix the baking soda and water together until you’ve got a paste.
  • Apply to your face and leave on for about 20 minutes.
  • Rinse and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer.

Zit-Zappin’ Treatment
1 aspirin tablet (contains salicylic acid, which helps unclog pores)
Water

  • Crush the aspirin with the back of a spoon and add just enough water to form a paste. Apply to the blemishes and let sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing.

Another spot treatment trick is to take a dab of cruelty-free toothpaste (the white paste kind, not the gel), and apply it to blemishes. Leave on overnight. This will dry out zits quickly.

Do you have any zit-zappin’ tricks? If so, please share with us in the comments section below!

    If you pop your zits,like me when they get bad, then you know that it sometimes causes ugly sores. I have a way to heal them quickly and clean them.

    Take a cruelty free contact solution(rub or no rub)and put it on your CLEAN finger and then apply to CLEAN sore.

    The solution not only heals the sore it helps clean it as well. Also if you run out of a toner you can use the solution for that too.
    Best of all if it get’s into your eyes it won’t irritate them or cause any bad effects. :)

    This is good. It’s really hard to find face washes that aren’t tested on animals!

    I actually use this as a facewash day and night! After about two months, my family and friends have noticed a difference on my acne, and scarring. You guys should definitely try it, especially if your looking for a cheap alternative! Thanks!

    Fresh parsley, put it in a blender with a little water and make a paste, put it all over face and then steam your face with parsley paste still on with a towel and hot pot of water for five minutes. The parsley and steam unclog pores and pull out dirt and leave your skin feeling super fresh and clean

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
