					Tips on Remedies For Acne
Acne is a persistent skin condition. No matter how much you try to keep it at bay, it keeps
coming back. Nearly everybody with acne has gone through some anti acne treatment at some
point in time. Let's take a look at a few tried and tested natural remedies which often work better
than synthetic applications and are far gentler on the skin.

Most of these traditional remedies are suitable for every skin and acne type. Here are a few
alternative natural treatments fro which you can find one which best suits your skin type.

Keep in mind that a number of foods like chocolates, spicy and greasy foods etc are responsible
for acne break outs. Keeping a food diary, and making a note of the things you eat will help you
identify those foods which trigger an acne break out. Try to exclude these food items from your
diet. Make it a point to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. Your skin will stay hydrated
and the toxins in your body will get flushed out of your system. Of course, a proper skin care
regimen is also vital.

Whenever you use a natural remedy, test it out for about a week and keep a record of results.
This will help you understand which remedy is right for your skin.

Witch hazel is one of the most popular natural remedies for curing acne. You can find witch
hazel online or even at natural food stores. It is a good anti bacterial toner. Use it on your face
after washing it in the morning. It will prevent bacteria from entering the pores on your skin.
Baking soda is also effective in helping to sooth acne inflammation. Make a paste of baking soda
and water and apply it to your face. Leave the paste on for 10 minutes. Rinse off the mask using
lukewarm water and gently pat your skin dry.

Cider vinegar helps in drying up acne and also lightens the ugly scars left behind. Use it at night
or all through the day. Apply cider vinegar on the affected area by gently dabbing it on using a
cotton ball.

Aloe Vera is miraculous natural remedy for clearing up acne. Mix Aloe Vera gel with a little tea
tree oil and apply the mixture on your face. Combine this acne treatment with exercise and a
proper, well-balanced diet and see your acne disappear completely.
