Herbal Cures for Acne - Use It and Lose Zit

Jul 19, 2008
An unbelievable amount of people suffer from acne. Almost 80% of teenagers under 18 are battling it and 50% once you hit adulthood. There are over a dozen different types of acnes, with the most common being blackheads.

If you have ever had acne in your life then I'm sure you are well aware of all of the advice that can be given out such as watching what you eat, washing your face more often, and not to drink soda. Instead of trying to figure out which food causes or contributes to your acne, why not put some focus on herbal cures for acne because it is herbal medications that sit on top of the list of well known cures. Start with B5 vitamin supplements as B5 is thought of as one of the best acne cures and that is likely because B5 will reduce the amount of oil that your skin will produce and it also will reduce the size of your pores.

Some people that have suffered from acne have used a variety of other herbs to cure their skin condition. Some of the many herbs include burdock root, lavender, chamomile, juniper, and dandelion root. These herbs are proven to work by lowering toxicity levels and acting as an anti inflammatory at the same time. Others rely on Aloe Vera gel to relieve their acne related symptoms, the flaky skin, the swelling, and the redness.

Many soaps and gels are Aloe Vera based so they work well. Naturists treat acne in many different ways and use products such as diluted tea tree oil applied right to the area that is affected. Almond oil, raw potatoes, apple cider vinegar, ginger juice, and green tea bags are only some of the acne treatments that naturists will use. Actually, ginger juice and certain vegetable juices are known to have anti-inflammatory and healing properties. What makes these treatments so popular, besides the fact that they work, is they do not cause any side effects.

Herbal cures are among the most common and popular alternative treatments for acne. The difference between natural medicine and what a dermatologist may prescribe is that the natural treatments will nourish and replenish the skin and what the dermatologist gives you is likely to dry out the skin. It is very easy to make your own natural remedies or purchase pre-made remedies and these natural remedies are also less costly than prescription drugs. With herbal cures for acne being so effective as well as less expensive, it's easy to see why it would sit at the top of most people's list.
