Acne Free Home Treatment Natural Cures

Jan 19, 2008
Do you feel embarrassed by skin blemishes and acne outbreaks? Have you sought help through endless doctor appointments and expensive medications which haven't solved your skin problems?

If that is the case, you may want to try treating your bothersome acne condition with an effective, natural method. In comparison with prescription medications, alternative acne treatments rarely cause harmful side effects and are generally less expensive.

With the growing popularity of alternative medicine more people are looking for all natural ways to solve their acne problems. Sometimes people will see some success with prescriptions but then they do not like the side effects of the drugs they are taking.

Other people who suffer from acne have tired almost every over the counter remedy and are still looking for one that will improve their condition. Indeed, some non-prescription ointments and lotions can actually make acne worse when used improperly or excessively.

Acne for women is usually the result of a hormonal imbalance. Due to this many women suffer from acne past their teen years. To help treat your condition for the long run, you should choose a method that won't jeopardize your health over the years.

The symptoms of acne are often painful and embarrassing for women. Today, numerous natural herbs are on the market that have proven successful in helping women alleviate or reduce these symptoms. These common herbs include primrose, black cohosh, red clover, and wild yam, among others.

Excess levels of androgen in the body often cause blocked pores by overproducing sebrum, thus leading to acne. Achieving a healthy balance of estrogen and androgen in the system is how these herbs aid in reducing acne.

When it comes to needing acne treatment, gender isn't an issue. Although many product sales are geared towards females; males suffer with the same concerns regarding their appearance. Several herbs which are widely available can benefit those desiring to be free of acne.

Herbs have medicinal qualities in that they are able to improve the skin's appearance by curbing the infection, while soothing the inflamed area. You can obtain the necessary items for herbal treatment for your skin problems by purchasing an herbal treatment at your local health store. Acne inflammation generally responds well to echinacea, dandelion root, red peony, licorice and salvia.

Many dermatologists believe that clinical acne can be caused by a vitamin deficiency. Clinical research has found that many patients with acne have insufficient Vitamin B in their systems. That vitamin deficiency can cause the production of excess sebum, thus resulting in clogged pores and acne. Regular dietary supplements of Vitamin B5 have shown good results in reducing and healing acne symptoms.

As with any new medicine or medical treatment, you should still be careful when using. Natural and herbal treatments are usually safe; but to be sure, you should talk with a knowledgeable alternative medicine specialist or herbalist. This will help ease you concerns about potential reactions or side effects.

If you would like to learn more about alternative remedies and suggested dosage amounts, an alternative medicine specialist can be helpful. If you are currently taking any other prescribed medications, you should inform and consult your physician and alternative medicine practitioner accordingly, in order to avoid potential medication complications and contraindications.
