Natural Home Remedies For Acne
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

"Look deep deep into nature, and then you'll understand everything"....I choose to agree with Albert Einstein on this fact. This means that human beings are able to have their health needs and entire well being under control and in check as long as they choose to listen,obey and live in harmony with mother nature.

Since the ancient times of the Egyptians and the Greeks, before the coming of the industrial revolution and professional practice of medicine, the entire human race heavily relied on herbs and plants among other natural means to maintain their well being and treat skin conditions.

Our main focus for this piece will be acne.There are several natural remedies of acne that have been established after lengthy trials and research has been conducted.They have proved very useful for those whose bodies are allergic to chemical additives and scents contained in prescription drugs.

Acne is a name given to a skin condition that results from excessive secretion of sebum causing partial or complete blockage of the pores.This then leads to inflammation which appears as zits, whiteheads, blackheads and scarring.

The following natural remedies for acne have been established and found to work miraculously!

  • Aloe Vera- This is also commonly referred to as the magical herb owing to the array of medicinal properties it possesses. It is an excellent treatment for skin conditions such as burns, eczema and acne. This is facilitated by its soothing, anti- inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties. It also contains Vitamin E which is essential in the proper regulation of glandular activity in the skin. This is achieved through topical application of aloe vera. However, it may also be administered orally and when it is absorbed into the blood stream, it is useful for proper development of the skin's epithelial tissue.
  • Egg White- The first thing we need to understand is why we are specifically to use the egg white and not the yolk.This is because the egg white does not contain zinc. Zinc is food and as we all know, bacteria cannot survive without food. On the other hand, the egg yolk is rich in zinc and for this reason it is more likely contaminated by bacteria. Egg white helps dry off excessive oils from the skin surface. It also helps reduce lesions and discoloration of the skin as a result of acne giving firm skin tones. It contains an enzyme known as lysozyme that kills bacteria, reverses permanent damage of the skin by acne and also helps prevent oxidation and browning of the skin.
  • Garlic- This may not be the most popular treatment for acne owing to its stinging pungent smell but despite this short coming, its importance cannot be over looked. It is packed with antimicrobial and skin healing properties. It also regulates the immune system causing the body to be less prone to fungal,viral and bacterial attacks. It also has antiseptic powers.
  • Lemon- This is a citrus fruit. From just that, we are well aware that it is fortified with Vitamin C which is an anti-inflammatory. It also curbs redness and irritation from acne and works well as a good exfoliant that destroys bacteria. This is through topical application.
  • Tomato- It is also packed with essential Vitamins and also plays the role of an antioxidant. It enables proper release of wastes by the skin and thus unclogging its pores. It is achieved by simply applying it onto the skin.
  • Honey- It was traditionally known as food for the gods and this was not only due to its sweet and pleasant taste. This was due to its antibacterial capability. When applied onto the skin, honey is able to kill all infestation of bacteria and thus reducing scarring and inflammation.
  • Cucumber- This is one of the most popular natural means of maintaining healthy skin free from acne. A blend paste is prepared and applied as a face mask to reduce appearance of the scarring and damage left behind by acne. It also hydrates the skin increasing its excretory and exfoliatory functions.

With all this, we cannot afford to suffer in silence when we are unable to find solutions in prescription medication..Try it today!
