Acne home remedies that work

Get rid of your acne fast

Many people use herbal acne treatments along with other kinds of remedies. None of these are fast and definite cures, but they do aid the body's metabolism and help to make the lymphatic system more effective.

Herbs have different uses and form a class known as alternative treatments that are used to cleanse body tissues. These are called detoxifying herbs and do not work in normal ways. Their detoxification effects are not gotten rid of through normal elimination in the colon, lungs, or kidneys. Therefore, they are not totally comprehended, but have been used for many years. They are worth trying. Herbal remedies affect the body from the inside, so they can be combined with topical acne treatments. The benefits that they give show in many different ways that classic over the counter products do not.

An alternative herb is meant to have a milder effect on the body. They work best when used over a longer time period. The results will not be evident right away, but do work to improve the health of the inside of the body. They are normally given to people who have chronic inflammatory conditions such as acne.

Red clover, echinacea, poke root, blue flag, and figwort are some of the herbs that are included in this group. One of the most popular mixtures of herbs is yellow dock, burdock, blue flag, and echinacea. Combining these together in hot water, will blend an excellent tea. Honey can be added for a sweeter taste. For the highest benefits, this mixture works best when used three times a day.

Another mixture can be made combining burdock, dandelion, and sarsaparilla. These dry herbs can be joined together for another tea. They can be used separately as well.

For those people who are looking for natural home remedies for acne breakouts in topical forms, there are different things to use. Tea tree oil is effective when placed directly on acne breakouts. It can be irritating for those with sensitive skin, but it can be diluted. For individuals with extremely sensitive skin, fresh cabbage juice can also be placed on the skin.

Tea can be used for more than just drinking. It can be made into a skin wash that fights against inflammation. It can be combined with calendula and chamomile. It is mixed, cooled, and refrigerated. It can be sprayed or placed right over the affected areas.

Yet another home acne treatment in skin wash form involves a mixture of yarrow, elder flower, and lavender.

Magnesium phosphate and potassium phosphate are minerals that benefit the skin as well. Zinc is shown to minimize or prevent scarring and also to boost the immune system. Vitamin C helps to heal acne and also is linked to positive effects on immunity.

There are many different natural home remedies for acne breakouts. Few people like having to use strong chemicals on their skin or having to ingest powerful drugs to stop acne. Herbs and other substances found in nature are gentler and often just as effective with treating acne. Following a few of the ideas above may encourage less breakouts and pose a better solution for effectively treating acne.

Had no idea there were so many herbal treatments for acne. I thought you were going to highlight spraying or dabbing a little alcohol on the problem area, and washing it with soap well.
