There are millions and millions of treatments for acne on the market that claim to cure acne forever. But, how do you know they actually work? You don’t. What you can do, however, is do your own research and read the labels to see what is in these products to determine how effective they may be. What you will probably find is a list of unrecognizable ingredients that were probably manufactured in a lab. What you don’t know is that these chemicals can be harmful to your health. What you put on your skin will be absorbed by your body. Do you want these chemicals in your body? Probably not. For this reason, many people are turning to buying or making their own natural remedies for acne.
Here are a few natural remedies for acne that you may like to try:
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is probably the most well known natural remedy for acne. It is sold in most natural food or vitamin stores. It is naturally anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. It helps to kill acne causing bacteria on the skin. Dab a small amount of tea tree oil onto your face and let it absorb. Repeat until the pimple disappears.
Aloe vera, in its natural state is very soothing and moisturizing to the skin. It helps a lot as a natural remedy for acne scars and fresh pimples that have been dried out too much. Put a small amount onto the affected area and let it seep in.
Tomatoes contain a lot of vitamin A. Vitamin A is great at helping to resurface the skin and get rid of debris that can clog pores and make acne worse. Smash up a couple of tomatoes and place them on your face as a mask. Let it dry and wash off.
Egg whites naturally dry up acne causing bacteria. Whisk several egg whites and place on your face. Wait for them to harden and dry and then wash off. (As a side note, using egg whites instead of whole eggs in meal preparation is one of the best fast weight loss tips for women to remember!)
These four natural remedies for acne are simple to do and can be just as effective as all of those chemical laden products you find at the store.
