Acne Home Remedies
Acne home remedies can be helpful to someone struggling with acne. Acne is a skin condition that causes breakouts of pimples – commonly known as zits.
Often caused by a combination of skin issues, acne is usually the result of oily skin caused by too much oil production and bacteria.
When your skin overproduces oil, the excess oil can block hair follicles, leaving your skin vulnerable to bacteria build-up.
The bacteria then causes an inflammation, which creates the red pimples you see in the mirror.
Many people deal with this skin condition, but the good news is that it’s easily treated with acne home remedies.
These home remedies are safe, non-toxic and best of all - they’re already in your home or can be easily obtained through your local supermarket.
One popular remedy is an oil called tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is known to help reduce acne breakouts.
Take a small amount and apply it directly to the face, but make sure you avoid any contact with the your eyes or mouth - and don’t take it internally since it’s poisonous if swallowed.
If you have a severe case of acne, it may take several weeks of using the oil before you see any changes in your skin.
Another effective treatment for those dealing with the frustrations of acne is carrot juice – topically used.
Carrots are rich in vitamin A, which is believed to help cure skin blemishes.
You can make a carrot juice topical solution yourself using fresh carrots and sea salt.
Juice a small amount of carrots and then add in a teaspoon of sea salt.
Once you’ve created a pasty mixture, rub it gently over your face where the acne outbreak is. The salt will help exfoliate your skin.
Leave the topical treatment on your skin until it dries. Then wash the mixture off with warm water.
You can also use baking soda as a facial mask to help with acne.
The reason baking soda is so effective is because it removes excess oil from the skin’s surface.
Other common home remedies that you might want to consider include the cinnamon and honey facial mask, the lemon peel and sugar topical, and apple cider vinegar toner.
All of these options will help clear up your skin. Remember, some home remedies may make your skin more sensitive to the sun.
If you’ve used an acne remedy, it’s recommended that you apply sunscreen when you’re in direct sunlight to prevent damage to your skin.
