Kitchen Products Make Great Acne Remedies

Who would have thought that some of the best natural acne remedies are hiding out in your own kitchen? If you are reluctant to use more of those lotions that dry your skin, or the other creams, ointments or soaps that are supposed to rid you of acne problems, but don't always work, why not try a more natural route to acne care. There are many possible acne cures that are based on using the things we eat, drink and season with that have proven results in offering benefits to our skin.

Turmeric, a plant that is a member of the ginger family, is used in a few recipes for acne care. In one you mix it with sandalwood powder and milk, which makes a powder you, can put on your face. Or try mixing turmeric powder with mint juice. Put this on your face where the acne is, leave for fifteen minutes and then gently wash it off with warm water. Repeat until the acne clears.

Instead of making a salad take your cucumber and mush it up in the blender. Take the paste and put it all over your face, leaving it there for twenty to thirty minutes. Remove it by gently rinsing with warm water. This will not only help to prevent acne but it will make your face feel fresh.  While you have your blender out you may want to instead try taking orange peels and grinding them up. Put this on the areas where you have acne.  This is known to be a fairly successful remedy.

You can also use herbs as acne remedies.  Basil is a good example. Take a couple of spoonfuls of the dried leaves and let them steep in boiled water, just like making a cup of tea, but this should remain steeping for closer to twenty minutes. Then let it cool before using a cotton ball to rinse your face with this treatment.

This one may sound a little odd as we're taught not to mix things that can curdle. But in this case you should try to mix some fresh squeezed juice from a lime in with boiled milk and use it to wash your face.  Or try taking some egg white and apply it softly to the infected areas. Leave it on for a minimum of twenty minutes during each treatment. Or you can try black cumin seeds, ground up first, and then mixed into a paste with vinegar. This may work for you.

Any of these pastes, or liquids, that you put on your face must be washed off after the treatment period with warm water in a gentle manner. Scrubbing them off will only aggravate the sores that you are trying to treat.  As well, before using any of these remedies you should do a little research to find exact lengths of time to leave them on your face. Most are fifteen to thirty minutes. Treatments will likely continue for several days until you have the desired results.
