Beauty :: 8 Home Remedies To Clear Acne Fast

8-Home-Remedies-To-Clear-Acne-Fast
  Over the counter and prescription products can treat acne. But, those products may also come with a list of warnings and side effects. You can cure acne naturally with significant results. Acne can be a real problem and medication is often expensive. Why not try out some home remedies for acne? However, this problem can be alleviated with the help of some simple home remedies. Before, discussing more about acne treatment home remedies, let's take a brief look at what are conventional treatment options for acne.

 1. Take some cooked oatmeal and put some honey in it. Mix them well and use the mixture as a homemade mask to get rid of acne. Let it sit for about 15 to 20 minutes before washing it off.

 2. Zinc. People with acne tend to be zinc deficient. Eating foods naturally rich in zinc, such as beef, chicken, yogurt, many nuts and beans will boost your zinc level. You can also try zinc supplements.

 3. Lemon or lime juice can also be substituted for vinegar. Both of these juices are rich in citric acid, and can exfoliate your skin very well, halting the growth of acne spots, as well as fading previous, non-active acne quicker.

 4. Another home remedy for getting rid of acne is using mild soaps for sensitive skin. Why? Harsh antibacterial soap will only make the acne problem worse because it creates irritated skin. The same goes for make-up: don?t use it. Even though make-up can cover up pimples, it clogs pores and thus makes them dirty which will result in even more pimples.

 5. Chasteberry Tea. For women who have acne flares up during their menstrual cycle, chasteberry tea is the recommended treatment. It has been shown, in studies, that chasteberry tea helps regulate female hormones. One cup per day should do the trick. It is important that you don't over-do this remedy. Drinking excessive amounts of the tea may worsen your acne.

 6. Crush a ripe tomato and then apply the pulp on the acne lesions. Keep it for about half an hour and then rinse it off with clean water.

 7. As odd as it may seem, oatmeal can absorb unwanted oil and draw out impurities which reside deep in your skin. Cook some plain oatmeal like you would for consumption. Let it cool off, and rub it over your clean skin. Let it sit for a while, like you would a mask, and then rinse off. If you do this on a regular basis, you should begin to start noticing results soon. It may feel funny, but it works!

 8. Cut the sugar out of your diet. I used to have monthly flare-ups of blemishes. The remedy that worked best for me was to give up sugar. I replaced the sugar in my diet with honey or molasses. Believe it or not, refined sugar is processed to remove the nutrients. The bi-product is molasses, which retains all the nutrition lost in the processing. If you must eat sugar, eat brown unrefined sugar and cut back when your acne flares up. Artificial sweeteners come with a variety of warnings and health risks. Splenda does not currently contain warning labels, but it is highly processed and refined and simply not what nature intended.
