The 7 Secret Acne Remedies

Oct 15, 2007
Acne remedies can be found almost anywhere - over the counter, supermarkets, groceries, drugstores and even in your own home.

Annoying as acne can be, the person itself often causes it. Improper diet, poor hygiene and skincare and even hormonal changes (okay, maybe this last one isn't caused by a person per se, but still it is their body so relatively they still cause it).

Most people think that acne remedies can only be found in bottles and jars often labeled "Amazing Acne Remedy! Cures acne in three days!" What they don't know is that there are secrets for acne remedies that can be found right in your own home. These acne remedies will help clear up acne and can even prevent further breakouts.

Acne can spread throughout the entire face and body if not treated immediately. Acne remedies need not be expensive; in addition, it is better to treat your acne with a non-chemical product to lessen further irritation. Harsh chemicals may add more damage to the skin especially if it sensitive.

Here are a 7 secrets for acne remedies that will clear your face effectively and naturally in no time.

1. Although it is not scientifically proven that chocolates and junk food cause acne, some foods may cause breakouts depending on its contents. Glycemic index (GI) of foods is simply an evaluation of the quality of carbohydrates in the food eaten. A high GI value results in a swift increase in blood glucose levels and raises the insulin levels while a low GI value has a slow rise in both blood glucose and insulin. A few examples of food with low GI value are as follows: vegetables except potatoes, fruits, nuts, fruit juice, water, and even coffee.

2. For an acne remedy that leaves no spots, try grinding some nutmeg with milk and apply directly on the affected area.

3. To cure blackheads and whiteheads, heat shredded potatoes until they are moist and spread on a cloth. Apply on areas needed. Adjust the amount of heat so you won't scald your skin.

4. For another acne remedy that will make pimples vanish without any marks, rubbing garlic onto affected areas will do the trick.

5. A skin refresher that doubles as an acne remover is an effective way to rejuvenate the skin while preventing acne from spreading or breaking out. Blend cucumber until it turns into a paste. Apply the paste as a mask onto your face and leave for 30 minutes. Rinse off afterwards.

6. Applying lemon juice with equal amounts of rose water will stop irritation and cleanse the bacteria. Apply with a cotton ball and leave for half an hour. Rinse off afterwards.

7. One of the best kept secrets for acne remedy is a clean face. Washing your skin daily with a mild cleanser upon waking up and before going to sleep can clear your face of unwanted acne. For a more natural approach, clean face with a cotton ball soaked in apple cider vinegar.

Acne remedies are effective when balanced with proper hygiene and a healthy diet. Follow these secrets on acne remedies and reveal a brighter, smoother face naturally.
