When dirt and other impurities get trapped under the skin, it causes clogged pores eventually leading to breakouts and acne. Other factors responsible for acne are hormonal imbalances, an unhealthy diet and pollution. Instead of the use of chemicals to treat acne, one can resort to natural remedies that also give you additional benefits.

The very common kitchen ingredient, honey, is popular for its beauty benefits as well. Honey is a natural moisturiser that helps in repairing damaged skin. The antioxidants and antimicrobial agents in honey help in soothing the skin and reduces inflammation.
