Homemade Blemish Buster

Oh no! Where'd that zit come from? Acne belongs back in high school…not on your face the day before a dinner party, family event or job interview. You can buy strong medicine to keep your skin clear, but it's hardly worth the expense and skin-drying harshness for the occasional breakout. Here's what to do…

Make a paste using equal amounts of cornstarch and rubbing alcohol—one-half teaspoon of each should be enough—and put it on the pimple to dry it out. Leave it on overnight and the zit should be history in the morning.

Easy Home Remedy to Stop a Cold Sore

About 85% of all Americans are prone to cold sores. These unsightly blemishes are caused by the herpes simplex virus. They often burst into view when you least want them—usually when your resistance is low because of a cold, the flu, pregnancy, sunburn, or before a job interview, your wedding day or some other stressful event. Cold sores generally take about two weeks to clear up. Here’s an easy home remedy to speed up the healing process...
