Homemade acne treatments or home remedies for acne will treat your acne without expensive treatments from the dermatologist. An acne home remedy will give good results at almost no cost.
Another benefit of a home remedy for acne is no side effects. Almost without exception a prescription acne medication from a dermatologist is going to have adverse side effects.
In fact a big part of a dermatologists mission is to compare side effects with results and adjust his prescription accordingly. Another visit, a new prescription and more expense!
If you suffer from acne and would rather try acne home remedies you don’t have to look any further than your own kitchen and medicine cabinet.
This home remedy for acne utilizes the acne fighting properties of aspirin, citrus juice and honey and will have your skin baby smooth in just a short period of time. And no side effects!
You can cure your acne without costly medications and side effects with homemade acne treatments.
What Causes Acne?
Even though scientists are at odds about exactly what causes acne it’s almost always an over production of sebum. That over production without a doubt can be caused by hormonal changes but genetics could also play a roll.
Whatever the cause, the over production of sebum results in clogged pores and infection. This causes the formation of zits, whiteheads and blackheads.
Homemade acne treatments will solve this problem.
Home Remedy For Acne
With aspirin, honey and lemon juice this home remedy for acne has a triple whammy for getting rid of acne.
Aspirin is salicylic acid, which is a beta hydroxy acid with the benefit of penetrating deeply to unclog pores and exfoliate dead skin cells. Aspirin is effective in creating smooth, healthy and vibrant skin.
Honey is one of the best natural acne fighting ingredients. Honey actually kills the bacterium that causes acne.
Lemon juice contains alpha hydroxy acid, which is an extremely effective natural cure for acne.
Lemon, Honey, Aspirin Mask
This aspirin mask is fairly easy to make.
Start with 3 or 4 regular aspirins (uncoated). Place the aspirins in a bowl and crush them to powder. If you have a spice grinder it will speed up the process.
Add about 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice to the aspirin and mix well. Add about a teaspoon of honey and mix again.
Before you apply aspirin mask you need to thoroughly wash your face with a mild natural soap. Don’t use soap with strong chemicals or perfume.
Do not scrub your face or rub very hard. Hard scrubbing will irritate your skin before applying the aspirin mask. Lightly pat your face dry with a towel.
Rub the aspirin mixture gently over your face. Allow the mask to dry and then rinse it off with water (don’t scrub). Pat your face dry.
Homemade acne treatments of this type can dry out skin so you need to use a moisturizer.
Topical Homemade Acne Treatments
Topical acne treatments are one-dimensional. Even though they are excellent at treating acne they only treat the existing acne and don’t get at the cause.
I highly recommend that anyone who desires to get rid of acne forever take an herbal acne pill supplement along with topical treatment.
Herbal acne pills will attack the acne from the inside while the homemade acne treatments attack from the outside.
