Kendall Jenner is very open about her struggles with acne–she even admitted it “completely ruined my skin” in a video on her app just last year. While her skin has cleared up as she’s gotten older, which she credits to her dermatologist and the end of those awkward teen years, she still gets breakouts from time to time.
So what does the supermodel do when a zit pops up out of nowhere? She uses a DIY spot treatment that’s SO easy to make. You probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already. Here’s the recipe:
Half teaspoon of baking soda
Half teaspoon of lemon juice
Teaspoon of honey
And if you’re wondering whether or not this concoction is legit, Allure did some digging to find out just that. Top dermatologist Joshua Zeichner gives his seal of approval. “Baking soda absorbs oil; acids in the lemon juice will exfoliate dead cells from the skin’s surface; and honey will both calm and soothe inflamed skin and may help kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin.” However, if your breakout is inflamed and painful, over-the-counter or prescription treatments are definitely the way to go.
