Home Remedies For Acne - Home Is Where The Healing Is

Author : Rick Minarovich

The problem of acne may not be a life threatening one, which can cause those not affected by it to simply dismiss it as not being a serious condition. However, those who are affected by it know that it can effect a persons self esteem and confidence as well leave behind acne scars. Home remedies for acne are a popular way to treat the condition, especially when either the problem isn't deemed serious enough for medical treatment or when medical treatment has failed.

Most acne sufferers concerned with their appearance will have tried many of the over the counter treatments available. These include antibacterial soaps and face-washes, creams and lotions. The purpose of these simple home remedies for acne is to clear away dead skin cells that are blocking the pores, as well as reducing the production of sebum that allows the onset of acne to begin.

There are a wide variety of home remedies for acne that are claimed work in helping clear acne. They often involve mixing a concoction of ingredients you can find around the home into a topical paste you apply to the face. Common mixtures involve mixing groundnut oil with lime juice, honey and cinnamon powder and yogurt mixed with oatmeal. Other remedies from around the home include applying orange peel, toothpaste, fenugreek, tomato puree and mint juice to acne (separately) in a bid to remove it naturally, as well as using egg whites to remove acne scars.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of home remedies for acne, and the internet is rife with an eclectic mix of so called natural cures. Whether or not they will work is probably hit and miss, as what worked for one person won't necessarily work for another. Applying a series of concoctions to the face will not be attractive to many, with staining caused to clothing and bed sheets making them often impractical too.

Another way of tackling the problem is less concerned with applying products and home-made mixtures to the face, but by looking at solving the problem from within. A healthy diet is one of the less talked about home remedies for acne, and yet it is often the most effective and practical solution. As with most recommendations for a healthy diet, the emphasis is on plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, and limiting processed meats like bacon and bologna and anything containing too many chemical additives, starches and saturated fat.

It is believed by nutritionist the world over, that the appearance of the skin on the outside is directly influenced by how we treat the body on the inside. Poor nutrition can cause many types of skin problems such as psoriasis and eczema, and it seems likely that it will at least worsen a case of acne, if not cause it in the first place. On balance, the best way of applying home remedies for acne is to both take care of the skin on the outside through regular washing, whilst giving your body the nutrition it needs inside to regulate skin problems itself.
