10 Natural Home Remedies For Acne

What is acne and who gets it? Acne is the common cause of spots. Most people with acne are aged between 12 and 25 but some older and younger people are affected. Boys are more commonly affected than girls. Acne usually affects the face but may also affect the back, neck and chest. The severity can range from mild to severe. About 8 in 10 teenagers develop some degree of acne. Often it is mild. However, it is estimated that about 3 in 10 teenagers have acne bad enough to need treatment to prevent scarring. Untreated acne usually lasts about 4-5 years before settling. However, it can last for many years in some cases. (Ref: ).

1) Toothpaste

Just dab a little white toothpaste on your outbreak area before bedtime and leave it on while you go to sleep. The toothpaste will dry out the acne as well as reduce swelling. You should see a marked
improvement in one to two days’ time. 

2) Tea Tree Oil

Use one drop of 5% tea-tree oil on the affected area up to 3 times a day to help kill off the bacteria that’s causing the acne infection. 

3) Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Vera Gel not only soothe your skin (making it less likely for you to touch/scratch and aggravate your acne area), it also helps reduce inflammation. Apply it on your outbreak area twice daily. You should see a significant difference in about 5 days.

4) Dried Orange Peel

The combination of Vitamin C and citric acid found in oranges make them a good home remedy for acne.

Dry out 2 orange peels in the Sun thoroughly. Grind them up and mix them with water to produce a paste.

Apply the paste on your face and leave it on for 15 - 25 minutes then rinse it off with warm water.

5) Baking Soda

Yes, you’ll soon realize that baking soda is such a good home remedy for almost every common ailment that you’d want to store up more of this miracle worker in your home.

Baking soda possesses antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties.
Just mix 2 teaspoons into warm water to make a paste. Apply the paste to your acne area and leave it on for 5 - 20 minutes. Rinse it off thereafter. Use this method sparingly (at most twice in one week). 

6) Lemon Juice

Like oranges, lemons are rich in Vitamin C and citric acid but this lemon juice remedy is much easier to prepare compared to the dried orange peel remedy.

Just squeeze out about one teaspoon of lemon juice into a bowl and apply it on the affected area with the help of cotton swabs. You can leave this on for a few hours before rinsing it off. Use this method up to 2 - 3 times a week only to prevent over-drying.

7) Ice

This is good for when you’re feeling the onset of a breakout coming. Wrap a couple of ice cubes in a hand towel and press it on the painful area for 5 minutes. Repeat a few times each day.

8) Steam

Steam can help open up your pores and allow trapped dirt to be flushed out. 

Pour out some boiled water into a bowl and let it cool sufficiently.
Test with the palm of your hand by placing it ABOVE the bowl to make sure that you’re comfortable with the heat (Caution: Do NOT put your hand into the hot bowl)

Position your face on top of the bowl to steam it. Do this until there’s no more steam. You can do this once every day.

9) Papaya

Raw papayas are rich in Vitamin A and other minerals and can help remove excess oil and dead skin cells from your skin surface. Just mash up the flesh to make a paste and apply it on your affected area
for about 15 minutes then rinse it off thoroughly. Use a moisturizer after if it’s too drying.

10) Banana Peel

When they tell you fruits are good for you, they mean it. Just look at how many of these home remedies rely on simple every day fruits.

For this remedy, all you need is one banana. Eat the banana but don’t throw away the peel. Instead, use the inside of the banana peel (the part that was in contact with the actual fruit) and rub it on your acne area. Leave it for about ½ hour before rinsing it off.

I hope these 10 home remedies help you to combat your immediate acne woes. Again, if you’re looking for a more permanent solution towards beautiful clear skin, please go ahead and watch this video right NOW:
