Amazing Natural Remedies For Acne

Nov 28, 2007
Acne - every teenager's nightmare.

Skin is actually the largest organ of the human body. In fact an average sized adult has about 17 square feet of skin, which when you think about it leaves a lot of room for cuts, scratches, grazes and sores.

Most teenagers tend to be very conscious of their looks and especially for females, waking up in the morning and finding a big, red zit on your chin is the worst thing that could happen to you.

Acne is a result of when dirt and oil plug up your skin's pores. These can be in the first of either whiteheads or blackheads. If there are bacteria trapped in your skin's pores, the skin will get red and inflamed and the result is pimples.

There are many medications available in supermarkets and there are also many natural remedies you can try for your acne.

Natural Remedy #1

Combine four ounces of grated horseradish with a pint of 90-proof alcohol. Add a pinch of grated nutmeg and a chopped up bitter orange peel - which you can get from health food stores. Dab some of this mixture onto each pimple every day, both morning and night.

This remedy will probably give you quicker results than the following remedies. You may need to select one of these and stick with it for a couple of weeks.

Natural Remedy #2

Wash your skin with mild soap and water. Then apply a think layer of extra-virgin olive oil. Do not wash it off; you need to let your skin absorb the olive oil. Do this three times a day. Your skin should clear up within a week.

Once your skin is clear you can maintain your clear skin by doing this process one a day.

Natural Remedy #3

Place 1/3 cup of uncooked oats in a blender and blend them until they become a powder. Add water, you will need a little less than 1/3 cup; it should become the consistency of paste. Apply this paste to your pimples and leave it on until it dries up and starts to crumble off. Wash off with tepid water. Do this once a day.

Natural Remedy #4

Mix the juice of two garlic cloves with an equal amount of vinegar and dab it on the pimples every evening. The condition may clear up in a couple of weeks.

Natural Remedy #5

Simmer one sliced medium onion in 1/2 cup of honey until the onion is soft. Then mash the mixture into a smooth paste. Make sure it's cool before applying it to blemishes. Leave it on at least one hour, and then rinse off with warm water. Repeat the procedure every evening.

Natural Remedy #6

If you have very bad acne then you may have scars. The following is a natural remedy that you can use for acne scars.

Combine 1 teaspoon of powdered nutmeg with 1 teaspoon of honey and apply it to the scarred area. After 20 minutes, wash it off with cool water.

Do this twice a week, it may take a couple of months and you will start seeing an improvement.
