If you suffer from acne and you feel like nothing will ever work then here are a few natural acne remedies that you can try at home. Some of the most popular are oatmeal and yogurt, honey, essential oils and natural sunlight. In this article I will show you how to apply these to your face to help you with your problem and hopefully they will work for you.
For many years oatmeal and yogurt have been the best natural home remedy for acne that many people like to keep a secret. You will need enough plain natural yogurt and oatmeal to mix and form into a paste. Once this has been done spread the paste all over your face and let it set for 20 minutes. Wash it off, pat dry your face and repeat the same process the next day.
Honey is something we all have somewhere in our kitchen cupboards and is readily available in any grocery store. It is natural and has bacteria fighting agents. Some people like to mix a little cinnamon with it before they apply it to the face. Rub 1-2 tablespoons of honey on your face and leave it for about 15 minutes. This will kill pimples and prevent new ones from forming.
Essential oils have always been used as remedies to treat many skin conditions for many centuries. Today essential oils are still being favored over other chemical products because they are more beneficial and have no side effects. Some of the best ones for acne are almond oil and lavender oil. If you have sensitive skin you can always dilute these oils with water so that your skin doesn’t become irritated. These natural oils for acne will not clog your pores in fact; they reduce the overproduction of sebum (body’s natural oil). When used consistently you should begin to see improvements.
As we all know it vitamin D is essential for our bones but what many people don’t know is that your skin also needs it. This is necessary to help fight pimples and the best way to get this dose is a few minutes of sunlight everyday. You don’t have to worry about this if you are an outdoor person but there are those who never leave their home. A walk around the block or a glass of lemonade on the patio should help you get a little sun.
You can try the oatmeal and yogurt paste, the honey, the essential oils and the vitamin D and you’ll have nothing to lose. These are all natural acne remedies that won’t cost you much money especially if you already have them at home and they won’t cause any damage to your skin.
