Natural Acne Remedies Found at Home

Updated on April 4, 2011

When I was a teenager there wasn't much that you could do if you had acne or any skin problems except wash with soap and water. You could see a doctor and risk their advice of cutting open an area on your face to let it drain or you could suffer silently and endure with your head down, picking constantly at your face. Although my acne wasn't terrible I knew of many teens my age that dealt with the embarrassing issue.

Acne, also known as zits and pimples, can be caused from a number of factors such as hormonal fluctuations, hereditary, stress, environmental pollution such as smoking and/or an unhealthy diet full of additives and not enough nutrients and, of course personal hygiene routine is important. To prevent breakouts drink plenty of water, keep a healthy diet full of fruit and veggies and try to maintain a stress-free lifestyle.

Here are a few easy recipes that I would like to share with you that you can make up each week and store in the refrigerator. Other recipes do not specify refrigeration but it is good to stick with small amounts in order to keep the bacteria down and off of your face.

Quick fix:

Apply orange peels to the affected area.

Can be used as a mask:

1 tsp tumeric

4 tbsp Olive oil

Let this paste dry and then wash off with warm water.

Disinfectant and Antiseptic for Acne

1 drop of tea tree oil

5 tbsp of olive oil

Apply to the problem area and leave overnight. Wash off in the morning.

Tonic Acne Mixture

1/2 onion, blended to a pulp

1/2 carrot, blended to a pulp

1 tbsp olive oil

1 egg yolk

Blend together, warm up for 20 seconds in the microwave and apply for 20-25 minutes.

Natural Glow Mixture

1 tsp Nutmeg

1 tbsp of Buttermilk

Mix to a paste and apply 2 or 3 times per day. Can also give your skin a light glow.

The funny part is that these homemade acne remedies can cost much less than the popular brands of acne cleanser that are now on the market and are just as effective at eliminating and healing pimples and blackheads. Experiment and find which remedy works for you. There are lots out there, depending on your skin type and preferences.
