DIY Homemade Acne Treatments that Work


If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to treat your acne condition, without having to rely on side effect prone medications, you might want to choose DIY homemade acne treatments. Dermatologists usually recommend that their patients use topical lotions or creams, but that again is not all that necessary. You would actually benefit from the fact there are no side effects in using homemade remedies for acne. Apart from the use of herbal treatments, people use everyday items such as honey and lemon to remove acne scars and treat the overall condition. For those who suffer from acne conditions, it may be best to use DIY homemade treatments rather than try prescriptions medications.

Although the true reasoning behind acne is still unknown, we can actual say that a lot has to do with genetics and the way you keep your body cleansed and nutritious. Eating oily foods or applying too much oily makeup has always been known to cause serious complications for people. Some people have very sensitive skin and this often becomes a problem when new makeup or skin products are used. In treating acne with homemade remedies, you can try several options.

For those who have been researching new forms of treatment; you may have heard about the aspirin mask. It is both easy to use and quite effective in treating the tradition acne condition. You would need to take a few aspirin tablets and turn them into powder form, which could be done by crushing them.

Have a cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice and keep it on the side. Add your grounded aspirin into a bowl and add the lemon juice. The next step is to add a tablespoon of honey and continue mixing the solution. Prior to applying your facial mask, you need to ensure that it is applied on a clean surface. Wash your face with lukewarm water, as it could ensure that your skin pores open up. You may also need to use a moisturizer as this homemade remedy might dry your skin.

There are various other homemade remedies that you could use in treating acne scars, but before you do use them; you need to make sure that your skin is not highly sensitive to the ingredients. Prior to using a new type of skin treatment, you might want to apply the ingredients to your skin, just to make sure that you don’t notice any adverse side effects.

Along with a homemade acne skincare remedy, you might also want to be careful with your diet. Acne diets have been known to help with the overall condition, as what you eat does affect how your skin looks and feels. Fast foods, oily foods and foods that increase sebum production have been known to cause acne in many teens and adults. Adult acne is actually caused by some of the foods you may be eating, so it is important to limit the types of food you eat. While using a homemade remedy, you can rest assured that the condition will be treated with no possible side effects.
