503 Home Remedies for Acne

I have several suggestions that have helped me. The number one thing is lemon juice. I have had bad breakouts since I was 12 (I'm 15 now). My parents, at one point, were paying $500 a month for treatment at the dermatologist. After several very intensive treatments, my acne went away almost completely. However, a year later it came back, but I didn't want to have to go back to the doctors, so I found experimented with many different things until I found lemon juice. Use this as your nighttime routine. Squeeze the juice of a fresh lemon (do not use the pre-squeezed lemon juice) into a clean bowl. You will either want to use half of the lemon or the whole lemon depending on the area of the break out. Before applying lemon juice with a paper towel or cotton balls, gently moisten the areas with warm water and let dry for about 15 seconds. Apply a generous amount to the areas that are breaking out. If you have highly sensitive skin, you should wash it off after 15-30 minutes, but I leave it on after night. In the morning, gently wash off the lemon juice with warm water. Do not use any sort of face wash unless it is 100% natural. I saw results within one night and all of my acne was gone within a week (coming from someone who suffered terribly with acne). Another positive with the lemon juice is that if you have any acne scars, lemon juice does, over time, lighten the scars. Do not wash your face or body with any sort of acne removal wash through out the day, but apply tea tree oil to any large pimples or stubborn areas.
This has worked wonders for me and I hope this helps you! :)

Coconut oil is a incredible. Melt about two teaspoons in a bowl and then add about five drops of eucalyptus oil and stir it up. It should smell a little strong. Put it one the effected area. I came across this when I put some on my nose for congestion overnight. When I woke up in the morning my acne was practically gone!! This works magic. Coconut oil is amazing for almost any thing.
I hope this helps someone!
Bonus. This helps with chest congestion too. Rub it on your chest before you go to bed.

Best way to fix acne ever!!! Make a paste using baking soda and warm water. Use a paint brush to spread the paste over your face. Let it sit until its completely dry. Then use the paint brush to rub vinegar over the dried paste. Cold vinegar works best. It will scrub away all zits! Rinse your face with water after. Your skin will be so soft. Dap dry :)

Go all Natural and stay away from any store bought chemicals unless they are from the health food store. I used to wash my face religiously with Cetaphil cleanser and then moisturize just as much with Cerave moisturizer, thinking it was helping my skin heal but then I came across this forum about using raw honey every night as a cleanser, I decided to give it a try. Once all my acne was almost healed, I switched over to water only face washing. Its been a couple weeks now and wow what a difference. Everynight I take a round cotton applicator and get it wet with water, then apply all over my face and let my face air dry. Next I dab Tea Tree Oil all over my face and Sulfur spot treatment on any noticeable pimples. I also use Aubrey Organics wrinkle serum on some of my hot spots. I do not use anything on my face in the morning, just some water drops from the shower. Im not currently using any moisturizer at this time until my skin retains its natural balance again and once it does Ill be applying JoJoba Oil at night and Aloe Vera Juice in the morning. As an exfoliator, I currently use some cooked oatmeal once a month. I also do a Raw Honey and/or Egg face mask once every other week after I steam my face for 10min. My only other remedy I use is I make non-flavored gelatin and apply it to my nose where there is blackheads and then I slowly peel it off after its dried. Also try to switch to a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner, eat more fruits and vegetables, exercise at least 10min aday and last but not least take your vitamins.Oh and I almost forgot drink Hot Lemon water every morning. Good Luck.

There is a cream that I have been using and it is AMAZING!!!!! It is called 'Clinique acne treatment'. If you rub it where your spots are than they will be gone in no time!!!

Olive Oil with a little bit of garlic oil before you go to bed does wonders for acne.

Let me start off by saying im not completely sure what my skin type is.. Sometimes I think it's combination sometimes dry.
I get pimples around my chin and sometimes my forehead..
I'm dry in between by forhead but oily in my tzone.. Idk it depends on the day
It used to be really bad for a while.
I tried the a little bit of cinnamon and lemon and sugar, and it got a little bit clearer.. I would make it every night..
Today though I realized I see an improvement but it's defently not completely clear.. So I googled alot of stuff.. For ance scars, acne ,dry skin, brightness and made my new mask.
Less than 1/4 cup of milk
1/4 cup of oatmeal
1tblspoon turmeric ( it won't stain skin cause of the milk?
1 tblspoon turmeric
2tablespoons honey
1 lemon
1/2 a clove of garlic( I know gross)
less than half of a cucumber

And that's that.. I know it's alot of ingredients. But they each have a porpuse.. I'm going to do this for a week and let you know if my skin is better
Oh yeah im leaving it on for 20 min.. Maybe paint your nails and shave your legs.. Since its going to get messy
hoping this helpsa few of you.. I know how irritating having acne is

Im 14 years old and i had acne, just bumps and the occasional giant pimples. so i said...'crud, well lets go to home remedies.com! lolz!' and the remedies kind of worked but not really. so i went to the store and i get this apricot scrub. i know you people dont like the kind of remedies that have to do with money but i only paid $3.75 big deal right? i cleared almost every little imperfection on my face. so try it man.
