Let’s face it, adulthood can be stressful. Although stress does not directly cause acne, research has uncovered that acne breakouts are more common when a person is stressed out or anxious.

It seems impossible to eliminate stress from our daily lives, so what can you do about your stress-induced acne? Well, you can buy expensive drug store creams and go to the dermatologist to get costly prescriptions for over-the-counter pills, but this seems far-fetched for those of us who are trying to survive on a  budget.

So, here are some home remedies that you can try with things you can find around the house!

1. Baking Soda Exfoliation

  • Mix together 2 tbsp. of baking soda with 1 tbsp. of water until it forms a thick liquid.
  •  Smooth mixture over clean face and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
  •  This is a natural exfoliate that helps to calm acne and oily skin.

 2. Oatmeal Mask
