1. Orange Peel- The orange peel is valuable in the treatment of acne. Grind the orange peel with some water to make paste and apply on affected areas.

2. Almond- Mix almond powder with a little water, and apply paste to face. Let it dry and then  rinse off

3. Lemon and Cinnamon- Mix 1 teaspoon lemon juice in 1 teaspoon finely-chopped cinnamon (dalchini) powder and apply on affected areas frequently.

4. Chickpea flour- Mix 1 teaspoon of chickpea flour with enough water to make a paste, and use this mixture to wash your face

5. Sandalwood- Make a paste of 1/2 teaspoon each of Sandalwood and turmeric powder in a little water and apply.

6. Cumin Seeds- Grind some black cumin seeds (shahi jeera) with some vinegar to make a smooth paste and apply on affected areas. 

7. Coriander- Mix a teaspoon of coriander juice with a pinch of turmeric powder and apply with mixture to the face after thoroughly washing it, every night before retiring. 

8. Cucumber- The healing packs made from grated cucumber, oatmeal cooked in milk, and cooked, creamed carrots used externally have been found to be very effective. 

9. Potato- Apply the juice of a raw potato for clearing skin blemishes. This cleaning results from high content of potassium, sulphur, phosphoros, and chlorine in the potato

10. Zinc- It should be taken in therapeutic doses of 50mg 3x a day. It has shown dramatic results in some cases.
