I'll start the ball rolling! ;D

1. Tea Tree oil
I used this when I had hives (really bad case), helps with reducing inflammation. Also works for pimples (normal and cystic acne). For cystic acne, tea tree oil can help to make it less swollen, red and painful, but does not get rid of the cyst. 

2. Royal Jelly
I use this as a mask every night before I sleep. Good for maintaining youthfulness, but it's like $200 a jar. I get mine fresh and frozen from Thailand.

3. Fresh Milk
Has a temporary whitening effect, can be used as a night mask. So far I've not had outbreaks from this. I use fresh Marigold milk from NTUC haha

4. Apple Cider Vinegar WITH THE MOTHER (impt!)
I use this as a way to prevent pimples. Pat a few drops on your face and spread it evenly. It will sting, but it's a good kind of pain lol you'll get used to it. Can also be taken orally to strengthen your immune system and prevent hives (I really had a bad case of it, like hives all over). Take a cap full of it and mix with a cup of water, recommended once a day after a meal.

Can be used for weight control too (heard from my sis).

My friend had really bad eczema on her face and now she's controlling it with ACV (she pats it on her face)

5. Coconut Oil
I love this! Great for hair and skin! Helps to prevent wrinkles, and moisturises your skin and helps with skin repair. It's hard to believe but it's great for pimples too. Coconut oil is antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal! Does not clog pores.

Does not work for cystic acne, but works wonders for normal pimples.

I order mine from iherb online. I only order cold pressed, pure virgin coconut oil.

6. Garlic
Use with caution. Good for killing normal pimples and if you're hard core enough, can even be used for burning cystic acne under the skin. Crush or cut a clove of garlic, leave for about 10 mins, then rub it on the pimple. Garlic kills viruses, bacteria and even fungi.



Ok that's all I can think of for now! Please share your home remedies for beauty in the comments below and add on to the list!  :D

I bought a bottle and left it aside after tasting a few spoonful. Could be over a yr and I have forgotten about it. So, can I still drink it?

Can try egg white as face mask, it sooth skin and calm spots. The egg yolk is better for hair, mix with honey or whatever you like. I'm lazy with hair masks so I do the egg white one whenever I fry an egg, use whats left in the shell, don't waste it. Wash off after it dry, the skin feels very smooth.

Thanks for the info - I was not aware that coconut oil does not work for cystic acne but is ok for normal pimples. I will pass on info to my granddaughter.

I use Monsia Skincare and the common ingredient in this product line is shea butter so I have made a hand/body cream combining lanolin, shea butter, jojoba oil and vit E oil. Works really well I apply immediately after my shower every morning. If anyone wants recipe just message me and I am happy to share. It is very simple to make, combine everything in a glass jug - I use a microwave.

Use fractionated coconut oil, no smell. I buy it on amazon.co.uk but honestly I prefer the argan oil as in Karmin or Pro-Naturals shampoo/conditioner.
