Homely prescriptions - Remedies for acne

Updated on December 10, 2014

Why simple homely remedies?

Face acne is the problem of many teenagers as well as adults. Acne when not treated early continues throughout the adulthood and even afterwards. I am a living example for the case. Here, I am going to provide 5 best home remedies to get rid of acne without any side effects. Why I am talking about side effects is that even the best medications available for acne treatment have side effects and many effects stomach directly. I am concerned about effects on stomach because its one and only cause of acne. Infact, almost all the diseases initiates when the stomach is not functioning properly. Therefore, before giving you my homely remedies for a clear face, I should assert that you should take care of your stomach. If your stomach is well and healthy, it will show on your skin.

Remedy 1: Large Raisins (grapes dried in a certain manner)

Large raisins are very good anti-oxidants and excellent for skin. Here are some great benefits of using large raisins:

  • reduces fatigue
  • as a good source of iron and vitamins, its helps control anaemia
  • Helps function heart well
  • Can be used to control chronic fever
  • Helps reduce inflammation

Above all, it helps reduce acne

Here is how

  • Take 5-7 large raisins and put them in a glass of water over night.
  • Drink the water early morning before taking anything. You will see your pimples reducing in first week of the treatment and completely gone in a month.
  • Continue treatment till they are completely vanished and gone for good (at least for 6 months)

Remedy 2: Aloe Vera

Remedy 2 is very simple:

  • Eat Aloe Vera
  • Drink Aloe Vera
  • Apply Aloe Vera

You can do all three above or just apply aloe vera on your face early morning. The best way to do this is to have a small aloe vera plant in your home. They can grow indoors too so there should be no problem.

  • Early morning, cut the plant slightly from the tip, it should give you some sticky water.
  • Apply that directly on your face.
  • Wash after 10-15 minutes or 5 minutes after the liquid is completely dried off and absorbed on your skin.

You can also take a aloe vera in the form of juice or cook it with some other vegetable. However, applying directly to you face is the quickest and easiest way to reduce and control acne. Your face would glow just after a few applications. As is proven by many studies, aloe vera is very beneficial for both skin and body, you should keep your plant and cherish it always.

Remedy 3: Fenugreek seeds - the wonder Indian herb

Fenugreek is rich in protein, iron, calcium and phosphorous. Considered as a treatment of fatigue and anaemia, it is also one of the skin beautifying ingredients. Its daily use not only guarantees glowing skin but also reduces blemishes and acne. Here is what you have to do:

Simply, take half a teaspoon of fenugreek seeds and soak in water overnight.

Drink the water early morning or 15 minutes before any other intake of food.

Once the routine is adapted regularly, you will visibly see a radiant skin free of acne.

Quick check

Large Raisins
Soak overnight, drink early morning
Aloe Vera
Apply directly on face
3 Fenugreek seeds
Soak overnight, drink early morning


Do not apply remedy 1 & 3 simultaneously. You can either try 1 or 3, not both at the same time. Try the one which is easy and doable for you. Remedy 2, Aloe vera, is good with every other remedy.


As is said by everyone that I know of, a balanced water intake is very essential for a healthy body and mind. Take water 1/2 an hour before every meal and 2 hours after taking a meal. This strategy will increase your body's water holding capacity, help body get rid of toxins in an efficient manner and regulates blood levels.


Here are the major points discussed so far:

  • Take care of your body
  • Take care of your stomach
  • Take care of constipation
  • Apply Remedy 1 &2
  • OR apply Remedy 2&3
  • Drink lots of water
  • And stay free and acne free


90% of people that I have met and who have acne problem says that they have constipation too. If that is the case with you too, then treat constipation before you start treatment for acne. How is constipation related to acne is very simple. Constipation happens when your stomach is not functioning properly. And as I said earlier, acne's root cause is upset stomach and so is constipation.
