503 Home Remedies for Acne

Submitted by My post will change your skin

I am 18 and have had acne since i was in 4th grade. My acne has been on and off but i have never had clear skin for most of my life, i have had some 'good days' but that is with makeup on. I have the type of skin that gets dry and oiley..its kind of both on and off and sometimes its face is all over the place and a lot of the times i get ridiculous break outs. I recently just found this website about two days ago i got fed up and thought home remedies would be best and i was right.
I had four huge breakouts between my eyebrows and huge breakouts on my left check by my mouth and some on the other side and little ones on my chin and i used some of the remedies everynight and even during the day, really doesnt matter as long as you switch it up. Its only been two days and the ones between my eyebrows are almost gone and the ones on my checks are really small now. ive been using three different ones and are going to continue using is because it has great results:

- mix 3 teaspoons of honey,
- 1.5 teaspoons of olive oil,
- 1 teaspoon if salt,
- .5 of a teaspoon of baking soda and apply to my face. So I let this mixture sit for 5-7 minutes and then I wash it off with cool water to close my pores. Do this before you sleep and wake up with amazing results.

-3 tea spoons of lemon juice,
- 1 tea spoon of salt
-1 tea spoon of sugar.
i would get a cotton ball and leave it for 5 to 10 minutes.

- 5 tablespoons of honey,
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon,
-2 tablespoons of baking soda,
- and 1/2 of a lemon's juice.
Mix it together and put it all over your face. Let it sit for 4-5 minutes

You prepare oatmeal for a face mask the same way you prepare oatmeal for breakfast. Take oatmeal and cook according to the instructions on the box. You won’t need to cook more than the equivalent of one serving. Allow the oatmeal to cool to room temperature. Apply warm (not hot) oatmeal over your face and leave in place for 20 to 30 minutes. After the oatmeal has set on your face, rinse off with warm water and pat your skin dry.
SERIOUSLY i didn't decide to post on this website until a few minutes ago when i noticed how great my skin is getting.
I started using the olive oil and honey first i even used it twice a day, in the morning/afternoon and before i go to bed then i found the others and mixed it up everynight and sometimes did it during the day when i wasent busy. All of these remedies are great for every type of skin because mine varies all of the time. Please try these after a few days you will be so happy.

Have any of you cut out Gluten (wheat)?? I struggled with acne and migraines my whole life and it was the culprate... it is extremely difficult to cut it out of your diet/life because it is in not only foods but in soaps, makeup, spices etc... also birth control has caused severe acne and boils in my skin. I am allergic to lemon juice and really anything raw but I use tea tree oil and emu oil on my skin and it is helping alot. I was told lavender oil is good too but im very allergic to it. Visit a co op they are anazingly informative. Replace your cooking oils with coconut oil. Amazing for lotion too...

I've had acne for a while now and I was tired of it, I had tried every acne medication, then I went to Smith's Market Place and looked in the face wash aisle and bought Neatrogena complete acne therapy system. I tried it and it really worked in just a day lots of my acne was gone and in a week mostly all my acne was gone and it's only $20. It has a chart on the back of the box that shows that all of your acne is gone in just a week. It has a face wash, acne control lotion and sunscreen in the box! I definitely recommend it!

My acne began when I was 15. I am currently 17. Since I was 12 I've had a mild red rash around the sides of my nose which used to get irritated and dry but now it is just a consistent pale red. At 15 I got pimples on the centre of my face- cheeks, sides of the nose, chin and between my eyebrows. I never got acne on the sides of my face or on my forehead, it remained clear. The acne began to get worse, I did not use anything on it. I began using small amounts of concealer as I became self conscious about it. While I was 16 I began using full coverage foundations because it was worse. I never touched any products that weren't completely natural and my diet wasn't fantastic. But 6 months into this I changed my diet completely and started using natural products such as tea tree oil and paw paw cream and aloe Vera. I went on vacation for a week and forgot to bring my tea tree oil once and consumed popcorn (which makes me break out) and got an incredibly horrible deep pimple for 3 days. So I bought tea tree oil and it cleared up. I also was in an environment very close to the beach and by the end of the stay my skin was the best it had been for a long time. I tend to eat heaps of fruit and vegetables.
Now my face is at it's absolute worst, the acne has spread to the sides of my face mildly and I have (not very visible) bumps on my forehead. My cheeks rarely get pimples but contain a lot of scarring. My chin is the worst, it constantly contains whiteheads and often gets large pimples. Between my eyebrows also regularly gets small pimples. Here is my diet: I have cut out dairy, sugar, red meats, all processed food. I only eat fruit, veges, chicken, brown pasta, brown rice, etc. I drink 2 litres of water every day. I have 1c green tea every day, I have 1t of apple cider vinegar diluted every day. I use tea tree oil twice a day morning and night. I use apple cider vinegar as a toner once a day. I moisturise with extra virgin olive oil every day and use that to take off my make up. I have tried healthy natural chemical free make ups and they make literally no difference. I get plenty of sleep and am currently not working and have low stress levels. I exercise regularly and walk everywhere. My acne does not seem to be inflamed by my period. Although I get very light periods and often only every 2nd or third month- I am not sure why.. I eat the right amounts and don't over or under exercise. I never sleep with make up on. I wash my face twice a day + a shower. I recently started to exfoliate every few days with raw sugar and water syrup and it makes no difference although my face is smoother and softer. I have tried a natural green clay mask I bought... No difference. I use baking powder sometimes to exfoliate instead of sugar, it feels softer but never changed the acne. I replaced my shower water system with a filtered one to prevent aggravation and I make sure my showers are not too hot. I almost never touch my face although if I have a pimple I will pick it off if I'm about to go out, I know it's bad but it's just too visible otherwise.
If it helps, my skin is very fair and I have very thin hair which tends to get oily. I change my shampoo often and only use good quality ones (and conditioner) and I always avoid letting it touch my face. I don't get body acne except the tiniest occasional pimple or two on my chest neck or back, it's so faint though.
I have tried lemon juice, egg masks, clay masks, baking soda exfoliators, green tea, sugar exfoliation, red wine, tumeric powder... nothing makes it any better or worse.
I feel like it might be internal but my diet is absolutely flawless- no hormones, no dairy, no sugars.
and I haven't always done this so I don't think it's a deficiency.

I am exceptionally healthy, I use the right products, what do I do!?

I am so sick of this acne. NOTHING is working. Nothing makes ANY difference. I will never try anything that is not completely natural. What kind of acne is this? What do I do? please email me at if you have any suggestions.

Hi guys. I don't really have acne, but I do get those big nasty pimples here and there. Also, I get a variety of little or big pimples on my cheeks and between my eyebrows. Before I say anything else I can not stress enough that do not touch your face, when you rinse your face spash the water on to your face, and when you scrub your face use hot water then when you rinse use cold.

Now do these step

Get baking soda and put on a wash rag remember hot water. Do not scrub very hard, but scrub your face for like three minutes. Then rinse with cold water. If you want to get rid of redness if there is any then mix some suger and water together. Make sure not too watery. Then put on infected area. Let it sit on there until it hardens then wash off.this should take redness away. I hope it works for you!

Hey every one! Ok so I have read that cutting ALL diary products out of your life will cure acne. But I can't do that. I love dairy so that isn't gonna work. (Chocolate is included in this category! :-0) So I did a little more research and found that lemon juice works. So I tried it. IT TOTALLY WORKED!!! My acne is really clearing. So what you do is squish all the juice out of a lemon. If you have a sponge paint brush apply it (the lemon juice) with that. If you don't use a cotton ball. Do this at night after washing your face. I put some moisturizer on after. THIS WILL MAKE YOUR FACE FEEL FUNNY AND IT WILL HURT for about ten seconds. Do this before you go to bed. You might have to do it a week or so to get results. If you have sensitive skin you might want to dilute it with water. It will work if you are consistent.
Thank you!
I really hope this helps someone!
