Researchers from Leeds Metropolitan University in the UK found that topical applications of thyme are more effective for treating acne than standard creams containing benzoyl peroxide—without the irritating side effects. These mighty little leaves were shown to begin killing pore-clogging bacteria in just five minutes.
- One medium ripe banana.
- Three tablespoons of chopped fresh thyme.
- 1/4 cup of yogurt.
- Two tablespoons of honey.
Preparation and Use
Put all the ingredients in a blender until they take a creamy look. Spread the mixture over your clean face and sit for 15 minutes.
At the end rinse your face with lukewarm water.
