This homemade zit remedy claims to get rid of a pimple completely just by putting one thing on it overnight. But the secret ingredient is something you’ll never guess: garlic.
You might not be able to stand the smell of raw garlic on your face, but if you can, you’ll be rewarded with a clear complexion. Garlic has allicin, which kills the bacteria that causes acne.
Beauty blogger Farah Dhukai swears by the technique and shows us exactly how to do it:

Everyone's skin is different, so result can vary from person to person. I can not vouch for any substitute ingredients. This post is provided for information and educational purposes.

If you can’t stand the stench, you could always mix minced garlic with olive oil or yogurt to cut the smell and wash it off after only 20 minutes.
