Usual breakouts...

I breakout sometimes and they turn a little red around it. I also breakout around the time I am about to get my period. So I was wondering if there are any home remedies that people know of that can prevent or atleast help diminish the look within a few days or something.

Take some roasted and powdered peels of pomegranate fruit. Next, add some lime juice to this powder to make a paste like mixture.

There are few more at this website which you may try

Hi pasntai,

Thank you for your question. Before your period starts, the hormone androgen triggers an increase in the production of body oil. This excess oil can clog pores, causing your face to break out. Hormone therapies, such as taking an oral contraceptive regularly, can help control this reaction. If you want a home remedy for breaking out, you can try some the recommendations on this site: http://www.grandmashomeremedies.com/pimples.html

Hope this helps,
