Coconut oil can also be rubbed on the skin because it's healing properties make it the best natural moisturizer.

4. Draw the Blinds

The sun slows down your healing process. This is because the UV rays stimulate the production of pigment producing cells in the skin, that leads to discolouration. Avoid staying in the sun for long and try to cover the area of the acne blemish when you go out. You can use sunscreens that have special protective ingredients like benzophenones, cinnamates and salicylates.
