Natures Remedies for Acne

Natures Remedies for Acne

If you have ever gone to a doctor for acne treatments, you may have been prescribed prescription medications to treat your acne.  These medications often come with a long laundry list of side-effects and sometimes these medications provide no relief to the acne sufferer. 

Following are some alternative acne treatments that use items from your own kitchen—these items are healthy items that you would actually eat and are good for you.  Since they are good nutrients for your body, they also have many helpful properties for your skin.  These simple, inexpensive methods are definitely worth trying to help your skin be healthy and problem free.

Oatmeal and Yogurt Mask

For a rejuvenating facial treatment which will moisturize and exfoliate your skin, while also working to kill any bacteria on your face which could promote development of acne.  It is suitable for all skin types and takes 3-5 minutes of prep time.

¼ Cup plain yogurt

2 Tablespoons honey

½ Cup Oatmeal

2/3 Cup hot distilled water

Directions:  Mix Water and oatmeal together and let sit for a few minutes so the oats have time to soak up the water.  Then mix in the honey and yogurt.  Apply a layer of this mixture to your face and let sit for around fifteen minutes.  Then gently rinse your face with warm water.

Black Tea

You can use your teabag for acne; allow the tea bag to steep for a few minutes.  Once the water is dark brown, lie down and place the teabag straight on your face.  You may rub the teabag gently into your face.  After a few minutes, you can place the teabag back into the water to warm up again.  (Note: you can also let the teabag sit on your eyelids for a few minutes—this tightens your skin around your eyes and helps lighten dark areas).

Use a vinegar toner

A little known secret is that using apple cider vinegar (ACV) on your face can have many benefits, which will help in reducing acne outbreaks.  Some of the benefits:

  • Antibacterial and antifungal properties
  • Removal of excess oils
  • Clearing of dead skin cells
  • Balances pH levels
  • Draws out toxins in your skin
You will need:
  • 1/2 cup of organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup of filtered water
  • A container for the toner, preferably glass

making the ACV toner:

  1. Make sure the glass bottle you are storing the toner in is clean and sterilized.
  2. Pour 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar and 1/2 cup of water into your glass container.
  3. Use a cotton ball to apply toner to your skin. (Shake well before use)
  4. Store in a cool, dark place.

Use Tumeric to treat acne

Tumeric is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties.  Using turmeric on acne can reduce inflammation, thus reducing the amount of swelling and redness present in your skin.  Tumeric has long been used to treat acne blemishes, blackheads and even other skin problems such as dark spots, hyperpigmentation, eczema, and psoriasis.

Tips for using turmeric on the skin:

  • Regular turmeric is very orange in color and if you’ve ever had curry, you will know it leaves everything a dark yellow.  This can temporarily stain the skin.  A kasturi turmeric (scientifically know as curcuma aromatic) is non-staining and has all of the same health and skin healing properties as regular turmeric.  It, however, is not the edible version used for cooking, so should never be taken internally –only use externally.  You can look for this in Indian stores.
  • You can mix turmeric with chickpea or rice flour in a 1:1 ration and then add yogurt to make a paste mask.
  • You can mix turmeric with plain water or coconut oil and dab directly onto blemishes or acne scars.  You can also mix it with lemon or cucumber juice (just a small amount of juice) and make a paste that you apply directly to your blemishes.  Leave this application on for 12-15 minutes.

In addition to using natural remedies to treat your acne, please remember to be-kind to your skin.  Over scrubbing can actually cause more acne problems.  Be gentle when cleansing your skin.  Avoid touching your skin, or rubbing your face throughout the day.  Never pick at your zits, whiteheads, or blackheads.

Also, evaluate your eating habits—do you have a healthy diet?  Is there something in your diet that may be promoting outbreaks?  Do you have a lot of stress that needs managing?

Take care of yourself, love yourself—you deserve it!
