Honey can be effective for acne because of its antibacterial properties. Considered by experts as the best solution for your acne, you can apply raw honey directly to your face. Honey is composed of vitamins, amino acids, and antioxidants that leave a soothing effect on your face. You can apply raw honey to your face or add lemon juice to it.

Just buy a pure tea tree oil and with the help of a cotton pad, dab it to your affected area. 

Apple Cider Vinegar 

Apple cider vinegar is one of the popular treatments for acne and pimples at home. Its astringent properties help tighten pores and remove excess oil from your face. It also contains antibacterial properties that kill acne-causing bacteria. Mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to a cup of plain water. Take a cotton pad and apply it to the affected areas. Leave it for a few minutes then wash off. 

Aloe Vera 

Aloe vera is widely used to treat rashes, burns and other skin conditions and is very effective in soothing the skin. Its healing and hydrating properties comfort the irritation produced by acne. You can exfoliate your skin with aloe vera, sugar and coconut oil by creating a scrub. A scrub can increase blood flow to your face and open the pores. Prepare a mixture by adding half a cup of coconut oil and half a cup of sugar. Add one-fourth of aloe vera gel into it, and then mix it properly and store it in the fridge. Then apply it on your face and rinse off with water later.
