503 Home Remedies for Acne

Submitted by Tired Teen

I have tried almost everything to get rid of acne. Im in my teens, and having acne is just another insecurity that i have to deal with. My mom read somewhere that garlic is a good to get rid of acne, and it actually works!! I barley started a day ago and i already see a drastic change, my pimples are smaller almost gone! This is just the second day and i am loving the results. =]]

All i did was wash my face with a gentle daily cleanser, then i pat my face dry and apply a clove of garlic to my face. I cut the clove in half to really get the juice on my face, if the clove dries before i applyed to my whole face i just wet it with a little water.

Now it does burn for a bit, but when its done you can feel your pores tighting and within an hour you see results.

This may not work for everyone, but it sure worked for me! I hope it works for you!! =))

Ingredients: Ground Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Honey, Lemon & Baking soda
First, put at least 2 tablespoons of baking soda into a bowl, squeeze a lemon and add about 3 teaspoons of it into the bowl, mix. Put in just a little bit of nutmeg, you don't need much, and some cinnamon. Add at least half a teaspoon of cinnamon into the mixture. Mix all together, put it on, and leave it for about and hour and a half. Wash off with warm/hot water.

I just started this treatment and it's working great! I have tried so many products and haven't seen any results, but this is something that ACTUALLY works! I'll let you know my whole skin routine. My skin is only oily on my nose, so I guess I have combination skin. Anyway, in the morning, I rinse off my face with warm water. I use 'Mary Kay Deep Cleanser Formula 3' to wash my face. It works great! You only need a dime-sized amount, it comes in a 6.5 fl oz bottle and lasts quite a while. After I lather that on my skin and work it in circles, I rinse it off with warm water, then cold water. Next, I dab my face with a towel (rubbing causes redness for me). Next, I put on my moisturizing lotion, 'Aveeno Daily Moisturizer'. You only need a little bit (less than a dime-sized amount). It's fragrance free. I have the 12 fl oz pump but it comes in a smaller size too. Later during the day, I make an oatmeal mask (I created it from multiple recipes). Put one egg white in a bowl and beat it with a fork until it's a little bubbly. Add a couple handfuls of 'Quaker Quick 1 Minute Oats' and mix until it becomes a paste. Add about 2 tsp honey and mix well. The egg white is the 'drying ingredient', the oats pull the bacteria and excess oil from the skin, and the honey moisturizes and tones. Before I apply the mask, I wash my face with 'Mary Kay Deep Cleanser Formula 3' and warm water. Then I put on the mask all over my face. It's a little hard to get it to stick, but keep working with it and it will work. I leave this on for about 45 minutes or until it feels hard when I touch it. It doesn't burn on my face, it feels cool and soothing. After 45 minutes, I take off the mask and throw it away (it comes off in clumps and you don't want to put it down the drain since it's pretty solid). I rinse off my face with warm water until everything is off, then I rinse with cold water. After I'm done, I apply a tiny bit of 'Aveeno Daily Moisturizer'. At night, I wash my face with 'Mary Kay Deep Cleanser Formula 3' and apply 'Mary Kay Acne Treatment Gel' to my problem areas. It has 5% Benzoyl Peroxide and comes in a 1 oz tube. So there you go! Sorry it's so long, but this is really working for me so I feel like I should share it with everyone. Please comment and tell me if it works for you too. One more thing, try your best to get in the habit of not touching your face with your hands if you have not washed them with soap. I used to touch my face a lot, whether it was an itch or I was leaning on my hand. Now that I don't touch my face with my unwashed hands, I'm noticing a difference. Again, sorry for the long long remedy! I really hope this works for you guys! Good luck and comment whether or not it works for you!

Try Blue Star ointment. It's in this tiny jar and only costs a few bucks at a local drugstore. It's typically used for ringworm which is an infection caused by a fungus. If you have acne it's caused by bacteria. Bacteria is usually pretty simple to kill, heat or other agents such as alcohol can kill them. Fungi are a little more difficult. That's why it's so hard to get rid of fungus problems like athlete's foot. I know you're thinking what does this have to do with acne, but Blue Star is used in all sorts of skin irritations, mostly ringworm, but other things as well. I know from personal experience that if you put Blue Star on your pimples daily and leave it on for several hours (like over night) it not only reduces current pimple size, but if you have been picking at your pimples it actually heals them and prevents scarring. Give it a try. It's only a few bucks a jar. And trust me you only need the thinnest of layers so that jar will actually last you well over a year.

I had some pretty bad acne and would get pimples like all the time but i accedentaly stumbled upon something that cleared it right up i noticed a difference over night. What i did was i went to this all natural Hippie store we have in town that gets all their stuff shipped from india and bought a mixture of a cucumber hydrosol mixed with some natural pachouli oil this was just for a colounge but i noticed one day that if i sprayed it on my face and rubbed it in that the next morning my face was clearer. I looked up pachouli online and its an herb that the oil helps acne, the results would be better if you used just Pachouli oil but even with the cucumber hydrosol it still worked.

let me know how this works if you try it

A clean and healthy colon is they key to healthy skin. Everyone should have a least two bowel movements a day ( three is ideal), and drink 64 oz of water a day. So if you're not getting either one of these, then you'll probably have bad skin. Take a colon cleanser everyday or one week out of a month to keep you clean. Also wash your face every night and day to keep bacteria down. Don't get a colonic though because that just clears you out temporarily and doesn't strengthen the colon like colon cleansers does. I promise you after one month, you'll see a huge different if you have acne even at all then.

I decided to look into acne home remedies when I stumbled unto an article stating vegans have more salicylic acid in their blood. Not only do many fruits and veggies provide it but so do herbs and spices in even greater quantity. It made sense to me that honey mixed with nutmeg or cinnamon would actually work, and it does. Simply make a paste with the ingredients above adding sugar and lime/lemon juice to thin it out. Don't get hung up on amounts, and don't hesitate to try it. Keeping this on all night this will help with acne scarring as well, otherwise a 15 minute mask will show improvement. After doing this once or twice you will want to keep it on, because if it works for you you will know. I grate my own cinnamon/nutmeg but already ground should work fine.

Get rid of all the magniyfing mirrors in your house! I used to pick at my face because everything looked so big and nasty and you just couldnt leave it like that a by 12 i had had scars and aggrivated acne all over my face. When i got rid of it and stopped touching my face it got a lot better. Also always wash your hands before applying makeup and cremes on your face.
I like to use lemon juice on my face. I buy those bottles that are shapped like them and mix it with my acne products.
hope this helps!
(And take me seriously about the mirror thing I wish i had!)
