Natural, holistic or home remedies can be an inexpensive way to fight acne.
Natural and herbal remedies are derived from the life of living plants. If each of you has taken a vitamin supplement, you may have noticed the taste just before swallowing it, it tastes like ground plants, leaves, etc., that’s because it is. There are no chemicals involved.
Natural herbal remedies do not alter hormonal balance, change chemical levels in the brain, or deceive the body.
Why is that? Because herbs contain certain properties they are intended to regulate the body’s functions to promote healing and health.
They are not synthetic or man-made, they are simply from the earth and they are here to help us with the problems we face. Herbal supplements are a healthy alternative to prescription drugs.
Some of the natural remedies are listed below.
Beverages rich in antioxidants and vitamin C and/or E can help refresh and rejuvenate the skin.
Foods rich in vitamin E can decrease acne-related scars.
*Tea tree oil is a popular home remedy for acne. It is an essential oil that is diluted and applied topically over acne lesions. Because tea tree oil can kill bacteria, it is believed that the application of topical tea tree oil to acne lesions kills the bacteria that cause acne.
In addition, there are certain herbs that can be digested that can alleviate chronic inflammatory problems especially related to the skin, such as acne.
These herbs include burdock, blades, red clover, fig tree, pica root, echinacea and blue flag. A great combination is the blue flag, burdock, yellow dock and echinacea. These can be mixed together and infused with hot water to make a tea.
Drink a cup of this three times a day. You can put some honey on it so it tastes better.
When researching over-the-counter options, always focus on medications or ointments containing 5 percent benzoyl peroxide.
Apply this to problem areas before bedtime, every day.
Benzoyl helps with open sores and pimples, in addition to unblocking blackheads and eliminating bacteria that commonly inhabit skin pores. You should only need a small amount, only one fingertip measurement will do.
Benzoyl peroxide effectively kills bacteria, dries the skin and promotes renewed growth of new cells.
You can buy lower doses without a prescription, however, stronger forms will require a prescription.
