However, overnight acne treatments are not too common. Cosmetic treatments are most often long drawn, complicated processes which are extremely heavy on the pocket too. To add to it, the results may not be just as satisfactory. Also, most acne patients may not be too keen about treating skin infections with chemical based cosmetic remedies, as the risk of further aggravation is involved. Therefore, home remedies for acne are the most suitable.


Although natural solutions for treating acne are deemed as safe and suitable alternatives, they require a good deal of patience. Most natural remedies do not guarantee overnight results. You need to wait for a few days before they can actually show a positive difference. However, they are still better than treating the problem with foreign compounds.

First, these natural remedies are inexpensive. Second, they are hundred percent safe. You are totally aware of the ingredients used in them, which is undoubtedly a huge plus. Third, and probably the most important reason for resorting to home remedies is that a selected few might actually help in making a considerable impact, almost overnight.


Overnight remedies for acne: the natural way

There are some overnight home remedies for acne which can provide almost instant results.

Apple cider vinegar

One such effective solution is apple cider vinegar which can also be substituted with the humble white vinegar as well. All you need to do is apply either of them on the affected area, with a cotton ball and leave it overnight. As a result, the acne affected areas will definitely be visibly drier. Moreover, apple cider vinegar application will not cause any apparent discomfort and can be easily left on for the entire night. It silently works and helps in reducing visible acne outbreaks.





Another interesting acne overnight treatment is the application of toothpaste. You can apply toothpaste on the affected areas for a period of about 15 minutes and wash off. Follow this up by applying a bit of alcohol over the affected area just prior to bedtime and the results are bound to be excellent next morning.  However, do not apply gel based toothpastes on the affected areas. Also, take care to apply the toothpaste on the acne area only. Applying it on normal skin may cause dry patches as toothpaste tends to absorb moisture.


Before administering these acne overnight cures, some preparatory steps are mandatory. The most important one is repetitive cleaning. You need to clean the area for removing excess oil or sebum and keeping the skin pores unclogged. This will definitely speed up the healing process and help the remedies to act faster.
