Mar 13, 2008
Acne is a horrible skin disease that causes problems for people all over the world every year. In this article we will look into natural treatments that are proven to work at home with great results.

Acne is a common skin disease that usually results with pimples on the face, chest, and back. It occurs when the pores of the skin become blocked with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. The medical term for acne is acne vulgaris. It is the most common of all skin diseases, affecting about seventeen million Americans.

Listed below are many acne home remedies that have been proven to work, forget about expensive treatment programs and prescriptions, and try one of these effective home remedies!

All natural apple cider vinegar is a great way to get rid of acne. I am sure you heard of apple cider vinegar but you could be mistaken. This is not your typical apple cider vinegar found in supermarkets, this apple cider vinegar is made from freshly, crushed apples which usually mature in wooden barrels for years, which increases its natural fermentation qualities. It is best to use this type of apple cider vinegar by mixing water to dilute it because it can be very potent. Mixing 2 parts water to every 1 part apple cider is the best rule of thumb. At the first sign of bumps on the face is the best time to apply apple cider vinegar. The best way to apply on face is after dilution, with a Q Tip or cotton ball on the infected area. You will see results within a week! Most people do not like or care of the taste of apple cider vinegar but now it is sold in pill form so there is no excuse for not taking it.

Tea tree oil is another great method of curing acne and has been proven safe for over sixty years. To use tea tree oil in the curable acne form it goes through a process of distilling the leaves of the tea tree species (Melaleuca alternifolia) which can only be found in New South Wales which is off the east coast of Australia. The best quality of tea tree oil comes from this area only, all other oils are mediocre. So when choosing tea tree oil for your acne, please make sure it comes from this area. Terpenes is a bacteria-fighting substance found in tea tree oil and acne is caused by bacteria, so when you mix these two together you got a great cure for acne. The Terpenes weaken or destroy the bacteria by shielding antibodies. To use tea tree oil it is best to apply a drop or two of pure, undiluted tea tree oil to affected acne areas of the skin.

Orange Peels couldn't possibly cure acne could they? Oh yeah they do, and they do it well! Simply grind orange peels in water to create a paste. Apply on and around pimples. Homemade acne treatment with orange peels has been found extremely effective and is another great acne treatment that will not harm your face.
