505 Home Remedies for Acne


I'm 14 and have had acne for 2 years now. I found a few remedies that work for my skin.
Brown sugar scrub:
1 cup brown sugar
1/8 cup of extra virgin olive oil, sweet almond oil
1/8 cup of grapeseed oil
Take off all makeup with warm water

Sea salt scrum:
1 cup of sea salt
3/4 cup of grapeseed oil, or sweet almond oil
Scrub face

Toothpaste after you wash your face before bed

Mix brown sugar and lemon juice then scrub and rinse


Ok, I'm not going to lie. I am a 13 year old with acne, but take into consideration that my acne has always been very minimal and only as of late have I gotten a breakout. But after that breakout I was determined to find a way to get rid of my acne, and I did.
After trying various remedies that supposedly worked wonders, I found out on important thing; to even start trying to get rid of your acne you must find out what type of skin is and realize that everyone's skin is different. Just because it worked for them does NOT mean it will work for you.
Toothpaste or any mixtures of kitchen ingredients never seemed to work for me, but then I heard of lemon juice...
After washing my face with shampoo and water, (I don't use soap or cleansers because soap is too rough on the skin and cleansers have unnatural, harsh chemicals inside) I take my tweezerman blackhead popper and pop anything that has formed a head. Since most of my pimples are formed at the surface this does not scar or damage my skin. Then I apply either lemon juice, freshly squeezed or Aloe Vera gel on the rest of my face.
After about 20 minutes I wash my face with warm water then moisturize my face.
Before I go to bed I pull my hair into a pony tail or bun and wear a headband to keep my hair away from my face, just do no dirt or oil get on my face.
Again, you must keep in mind, everyone's skin is different, so this method may not work for you. Yet, I still wish you luck on your own journey to conquer you acne.


Lemon juice. I've tried so many different remedies... And this is the one that works the best (at least for me). All you have to do it take a cotton ball and dab the lemon juice onto your skin. I have only been doing this for two days so far, and there is already a huge improvement!!!


Just started using Antiac from Salcura for my acne.

I am 23 and have had really bad acne for 9 years. Been using the Antiac for 2 weeks now. It's all natural and makes my skin feel really hydrated.

In the first couple of days had bit of a breakout so called for a refund but was told that this is normal and to persevere. Was very skeptical but thought i'd give it another week as had lots left and rest of 30day guarantee left.

Now skin looking great, best it has for years. so much smoother, not pustules adn redness nearly all gone. few black heads left to go but that's nothing compared to what im used to dealing with.

Really recomend it. know not everything works for everyone but thsi is definitely worth a shot. hope it helps you too.


Well, i've tried HEAPS of remedies but none worked very well. Anyway... mix honey and cinnimon together,enough for your face(and/or back) have a shower wash the affected area with warm soapy water then dry yourself off and apply the mixture then sleep with it on. Cotinue to do this every night.
BEWARE- this process is very messy and this mixture stains so cover your bed/sheets/pillow with plastic sheets or an old towel, something that can be later thrown out.

Hi, I am a 44 year old male who has suffered with acne since the age of 15. I have tried almost every remedy under the sun including Accutane. What I have found to work for me now is to alter my diet. I avoid dairy, soy, and chocolate in any form. I also wash my face less and only with water, no cleansers at all. If I do get a pimple I use a dab of milk of magnesia on it overnight and it dries it out quick. I get only about one pimple every two weeks or so now; usually because I break my diet. Give it a shot, hopefully it will work for you.


no one wants to go and buy things to see if it works and it doesnt end up work, what. a. waste.
easy and simple and pops a pimple!
take a warm hot shower, normally wash your face with your normal soap/body wash/shower gel.
then when you get out, dry your face and apply toothpaste.


Hey ya'll im 15 and i suffer from severe acne problems on my chin and eyebrows, i have never gotten acne anywhere else but these two places, sometimes they get so bad that you cant even see the hair on my eyebrows, and my chin is just red dots. One day i was fiddling with my face and some products when i finally found the perfect solution for my disease. This solution is imported from chile.
Step 1: take one or two chilli beans slice them open and apply paste generously to affected areas.
Step 2: Take raw tomato juice and apply right after the chilli beans.
Step 3: Final step of this long and costly process; take dish detergent and apply generously over the whole face. Rinse with ice water and rub dry.
Hope this helps you, like it helped my acne :D comment if it works like a charm!


My parenting/cooking teacher told us that if you leave toothpaste on the pimple over night it will get rid of the redness and pretty much make it vanish. I was skeptical so I tried it and it works but it has to be PASTE not gel.

HAVE ANY OF YOU PEOPLE NOTICED that there are HUNDREDS of remedies, but they only work for that one certain person?? We are all different people with different skin. There are few remedies that actually work, but one is essential for everyone's face.

1.Cut WAY down on sweets. Your forehead and chin depends on it.
2.Find remedies that suit your type of skin, like moderate, severe, or light.
3.Natural products are the only products that work for acne. NOTHING ELSE. No advertising product works at all, no matter what. (proactic, clean and clear, neutrogenia)

If you want to get rid of your acne YOU need to take the risk and be smart. GOOD LUCK :)
