A few remedies to use are surprisingly right in your refrigerator, such as:

Wash your face with water and pat dry. Mixing the 1 part vinegar and 3 parts water, dip a cotton ball into vinegar and apply it directly to the blemish. Allow the application to sit for at least 10 minutes or overnight, this should be repeated several times a day. Finally, be sure to wash the mixture off completely and moisturize as needed.
2. Cinnamon and honey mask
Cinnamon has antimicrobial properties, which stops bacteria from getting worse and the honey is a natural antibiotic.
2 tablespoons of honey, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and paper towels

4. Mix strawberries and honey
Strawberries are high in salicylic acid, opening up clogged pores, and neutralizing bacteria.

Honey also works against bacteria that may be behind your acne and is an anti-inflammatory.

Wash your face with water and pat dry. First, rinse 3 strawberries and mash them, however not to over mash them or make them runny. Mix together the strawberries and two teaspoons of honey. Once the mix is completed, apply the mixture to your face and allow it to sit for 20 minutes. Finally, rinse your face completely with warm water, pat dry, and if needed moisturize. It is suggested to repeat this twice a week a month.
5. Banana peel
Banana peels contain lutein, an extremely powerful antioxidant that reduces swelling and inflammation, also helping the growth of the healthy cell. Rubbing a banana peel on your face can reduce redness, and discomfort of acne.
