When I was in cosmetology school, we got to experiment with different homemade concoctions.
Plain yogurt to the skin is very hydrating, and it acts as an anti bacterial. With this, placing sliced strawberries on the skin (this method is for the face might I add.) Strawberries are actually an antiseptic, and will cleanse your pores, if someone has a problem with acne, this is one of the best home remedies. I've used this many times, and its wonderful, not to mention it smells fantastic!
We also used raw egg whites, which draws out dirt and infection. I didn't find this as appealing, but its still worth the try.
