Rubbing Alcohol onto the Zits
Yes, you’ve read it right. Alcohol or liquor is a common home remedy that is just a waste of time and some good quality liquor.
What’s the theory behind it?
Alcohol is known to clean and wipe off excess surface oil from the skin. It is also said that it contains components that help kill the acne causing bacteria.
Why this remedy won’t work
Rubbing alcohol in your skin has all the qualifications to be the best home remedy for your acne complication since it can kill bacteria and dissolve the sebum hence unclogging your pores. The only problem is that strong alcohol concentrations will make the skin overly irritated and dry hence causing more harm than good to the skin.
The best working alternative to alcohol would be mild alcohol based cleansers that kill the bacteria and unclog your pores without irritating your skin.
