    Great Post! I have had acne from 2 years now and they come and go. I have tried the curd and besan home remedy and it works amazingly well. Also, after washing my face from this pack I apply Pure Nature Organic Tea Tree & Rosemary Purifying Oil from Oriflame. It helps me tone out my skin and control the blemishes which have gone too wild. It is a great product for oily skin as it is made from natural and organic substances. I would advice people with blemishes and acne to try it.
