At home acne treatments

When the pores are blocked due to dirt some problems like acne and pimples of the skin are formed. If there is excess oil it blocks our pores which should be removed immediately by steaming or using some face packs which removes the excess

oil. Face packs act as a sponge and absorb the excess dirt and oil from our skin and helps to keep it glowing and blemish free. An intake of lots of water works wonders with an acne infected skin.
