The 24-Hour Onion, Yes, Onion Cure!

Submitted by Cherisa

For quick fixes in less than 24-hours try rubbing ONION on your skin. The smell goes away quickly as it dries and gets absorbed into the skin. Simply rub a slice on the skin at night and let it work while you sleep or apply during the day under makeup. 

After a while your skin will clear up so well you won't ever need to wear that makeup. And if you keep a little onion on your skin everyday or every other day you will see significant results within a day. It's the sulfuric acid in onion that is proven to kill the bacteria that causes acne. And itís ONLY the powerful combination of hydrogen peroxide and sulfuric acid that makes products like Proactiv work so successfully. 

Rub a small slice of onion on your face and let the magic begin.

I never heard about this trick but I'm going to give it a shot. I always had a few zits as a kid... but lately it's gotten out of control. ( birth control...stress??) I;ve tried everything..so i have my fingers crossed for this one.

I'll give it a try. Comments By: Becca on 2007-02-08
I'm going to try this trick tonight, I hope it works as ive tried loads of spot treatments from the shop and even got cream from my doctor but nothing seems to work.
I've found that clean and clear is good but it dries your skin and makes it go all flaky, can anyone help, if i put moisturiser on then the spots just come back!

You can try using Mederma. That is the active ingrediant in this. I use it and it's true... I just think that Merederma os easier to use that just applying onion to the skin.

well if you have a spot come up and you have nothing else to hand then it is certainly worth a go and i would say it does work very well, i say this as i have just been forced to use this method myself as i had a spot come up and needed it gone before the weekend
