What are some of the best natural remedies for excessive acne?

Masks that you can make from things you’ll find in the pantry/refrigerator, for example.

vti answers:

Step one to clearing up acne is by washing your face everyday. This is to cleanse dirt that has accumulated during your daily activities and after oils have accumulated on the skin the night before. To cleanse your face of debris, simply splash some warm water on your face and use a gentle cleanser.

Step two to clearing up acne is by exfoliating. Exfoliating at least once a week helps slough off dead skin cells and encourage healthy skin cell turnover to promote younger-looking skin with a glowing and clearer complexion.

Step three is using a toner or mask. Toners help get rid of any remaining dirt left on the skin and effectively cleanse pores.

Step four is applying medication on areas affected by acne. This can range from Benzoyl Peroxide to Retin-A.

Step five is applying moisturizer. Moisturizer is probably one of the most important steps in your regimen. It helps lock in moisture in the skin to promote elasticity and healthy healing of the skin.

For best results, use all-natural skin care products containing ingredients that work together as a system like the ZENMED Derma Cleanse Gel, which reduces inflammation, redness, and scarring, and the Derma Cleanse Gentle Cleanser, which removes bacteria and excess sebum that have accumulated in the pores

What are some naturals remedies for acne?

i need some natural remedies for acne found at home… is there any?

vti answers:

Sometimes just the oil on your face from make up and lotions, even from your hair can travel to your face causing acne to come out. Others, from stress, hormones & diet or foods.

Acne medication could worsen what ever allergies you have, so instead of trying out one product after another, you’re actually spreading it around. Example: ProActiv contains a known carcinogen, at a percentage known to promote skin cancer.

The less products you use, the better for your skin. Use a bath wash like Suave, Irish Spring, Dove Bath & Body wash in the shower, use a washcloth. Treat your face like the rest of your body, take a shower everyday or wash your face everyday.

The secret is keeping your face clean and oil-free. I also don’t use liquid on my face for anything, and very little moisturizer, not even a dime size. Since my face is not dry. Good skin also comes from your good genes. Increase your fresh fruits & vegetables 3-5 servings per day. And programmed your mind to do this day after day, for the rest of your life.

Natural remedies for acne & blemishes?

Lately ive been breaking out in pimples and it’s sooooo ugly!

i don’t mind using acne products but i rather go natural..

if anyone knows of natural remedies for this, i would be happy to know

vti answers:

Ummm i c…well here are some methods you can have a go at…try using any of them…chose the one that is the most suitable for you….and btw they are all home remedies

1. Just apply lemon juice to pimples becuase this reduces their size and intensity. It is also effective in removing the scars left by pimples.

2. This method requires the fenugreek plant. All u have to do is make a fenugreek paste from the leaves of this particular vegetable and apply to the face before going to bed.

Then wash your face with pale warm water in the morning to remove the paste.

Applying fenugreek paste regularly for some days can get rid of pimples and its scars for ever.

3. This is quite easy as u just have to apply garlic juice. Garlic juice is actually an effective way to get rid of pimples and acne as it kills the bacteria that causes pimples to occur.

4. Orange paste made from grinding orange peel with some amount of water is also an effective way of removing pimples and scars. Peel of the orange and make the paste using a blender. Umm i suggest u keep the paste for at least 10-30 minutes.

5. Pimples can be completely cured by daily intake of a spoonful of honey mixed with sulphur powder.

6. Make some paste made from cucumber is a good remedy for getting rid of pimples.

Take cucumber and grate it after peeling and add lemon juice,

mix it well and put it in a blender to make a fine paste.

7. Apply a paste made from neem leaves and turmeric powder also helps in getting rid of pimples.

First apply the paste and then wash it off with lukewarm water after 20-30 minutes of applying.

Regular applying of this paste not only removes pimples and its scars but it also gives a glow look to your skin, which is why this is my favourite one…plus i love the smell too XD

8. And my final method is to get a mild facial cleanser. Use it to clean your skin in the morning and before going to sleep. Well get a flavoured one like cucumber or payapa from trusted brand like “eskinol” or “himalaya herbals”

And btw …do you touch your facial skin a lot? Because

touching your skin passes extra dirt, bacteria, oil and filth that can cause acne and other skin irritations, so avoid touching your skin unnecessarily.

Hope this helps x
