Acne is a problem both teenagers and adults deal with. When those pesky pimples arrive, it can be as embarrassing as it is to walk around with your face covered in pimples or blackheads. By learning home remedies, you not only can save money, but you will also find safe and effective cures to your ailments such as acne.
The key is establishing a pattern in your lifestyle that promotes the health of your body. Things such as drinking water, eating leafy vegetables are just a couple things you might want to implement into your life. Whether you have a small bump or are covered with pimples, there is no time like the present to make lifestyle changes that can and will help you achieve a pimple free face.
What is Acne?
Unfortunately, most people will deal with acne at some point in their life. Whether they are a child just entering puberty or a middle age adult struggling with adult acne; the point is that everyone deals with bumps, pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. As we learn what acne is, we can combat the skin condition creating a balanced, healthy face and body.
How do I get Acne?
No one is certain as to why we get acne. What we do know is that hormones are a major factor in different types of skin conditions.
Acne Home Remedies
For most of us, we got to the point where we said, “Enough of this acne.” At this point, we began researching for home remedies that will be family friendly, cost-effective treatment for acne. Acne products seem to get more expensive by the year causing someone dealing with acne to struggle to pay for their skin condition. That is where home remedies come in. These home remedies have been tried by many people struggling with acne. Remember that not every remedy will work for every person as each person is different. I am a firm believer in home remedies and have used each of these.
Toothpaste on a pimple will relieve the inflammation. Take toothpaste and smear on the pimple. Leave overnight. In the morning, there will be less inflammation on the pimple.
Tea Tree Oil is a fabulous acne fighter. Take a couple drops of oil and smear on the areas of acne. If you have sensitive skin, make sure to dilute the tea tree oil with water.

Lemon and Rose Water are helpful at getting rid of blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, zits, and larger bumps. You want to use equal parts of lemon juice and rose water. Apply to clean face and let dry.
Aloe Vera will soothe the skin and can also work as an anti-inflammatory. As most already know, Aloe Vera is also an antiseptic for minor cuts and abrasions.
Oatmeal will cleanse the facial spores and exfoliate the skin. It is best to do an oatmeal cleanse at list once a week. To create an oatmeal cleanse, cook your oatmeal as normal. Add one or two tablespoons of honey, mix and let cool completely. Apply to face but make sure to avoid the eyes, eyelashes, and ears. You can leave the oatmeal mixture at least ten to twenty minutes. Wash face completely and dry face.
