Natural Remedies for Acne

Natural remedies for acne are an alternative to the harsh chemicals found in most over the counter medications or internal antibiotics used to treat acne. If you’re one of those people who are hesitant to use a product when they can’t pronounce all the chemicals on the ingredients list, then I don’t personally blame you. In my own acne remedy experiments, I have found my skin reacts much more positively to natural cures. Even when using over the counter products, having a little bit of a natural ingredient speeds things along and leaves my skin feeling less assaulted.

Tea Tree Oil
When I first tried to treat my acne, tea tree oil was the product of choice. Though my acne worsened as I got older because of hormones, tea tree oil fights bacteria-based acne well. Tea tree oil is a topical acne treatment and contains “terpenes”– this is a component produced by most plants as an essential oil, and in tea tree oil’s case, kills bacteria with very little side effects.

Tea tree oil products can come in cover sticks, but if you can’t get that to match your skintone, its typical form is a clear oil; no one will know you’re wearing it if you choose to use it throughout the day. 100% pure tea tree oil is also very easy to find.

Aloe Vera
Aloe, one of the cure alls of skin treatments. While some of the claims made for aloe vera are exaggerated, aloe vera is good for dealing with wounds and acne is, unfortunately, often like a series of little wounds. If you pick at your face often, or are trying to get over the habit (and you should be trying!), aloe might be a great natural remedy to help that along as you can heal what you’ve already picked at while healing your other breakouts without the sting. Aloe vera, like tea tree oil, also has antibacterial properties that can reduce acne and is easy to find in 100% pure format, such as with Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel.

Acai Berries
The health properties of the acai berry have been shouted from the rooftops in recent times. It’s high antioxidant content is said to have anti-aging properties. In general, “anti-aging” typically means “it’s good for your skin.” The properties of the acai berry help detox your body, and while it’s no substitute for a good cleaning routine of acne, there are sources that suggest eating more acai berries and getting more antioxidants will improve your skin’s health, which is going to help you battle acne.

I strongly recommend looking into acai berry juice if you plan to try acai berries; juice is by far the easiest way to get the benefits as long as it’s processed the right way.

Some sources claim that lavender or rose water are effective acne treatments. Biologically speaking, they don’t do much to cleanse your face or kill bacteria. The reason people have luck with these kinds of treatments is because aromatherapy can relax and reduce stress. And there’s nothing wrong with that; if you’re threatening to pull out all of your hair over your condition and want to treat your skin and enjoy aromatherapy, then these kinds of treatments will not worsen your acne, even if they don’t directly help.

They may not be effective if you suffer from bacterial acne, but if your acne is stress and hormone related and you’re at the end of your line, go ahead and boil lavender for a steam wash, and then rinse with rose water. Sometimes giving yourself a little personal spa treatment is important for a healthy mind.

If you’re lacking in proper vitamins, vitamin supplements may be a natural way to help your skin. Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Zinc are all important to healthy skin. Zinc can be especially difficult to get in the appropriate amounts and helps more than ance. The reason it helps against acne is because it boosts the immune system. Good sources of zinc include baked beans, pumpkin seeds, and cheddar cheese.

If you feel you’re not getting enough of these vitamins, supplements may help you fight off acne.
