Prescription Acne medication can scar if not used appropriately.

When it comes to wearing makeup the natural look is always refreshing. Cosmetics products with sulfates, harsh red dyes, heavy oils are hard on the skin blocking the pores and contributing to an outbreak. Cleansing creams with chlorides, oils and alcohol used to as a treatment for Acne can be damaging to the skin because they are to harsh. It is very important to read the labels carefully before purchasing these products to see just what you are using. Also cleansing your face at least 3 times a day so that there is no opportunity for pore blockage is one of the best remedies for keeping our breaks to a minimum.

There are several natural, home remedies for Acne that you either have in your own kitchen or you can get them from the health food store rather inexpensively. Just because these home remedy are considered natural treatments for Acne, does not mean that you should be less cautious than you would be with prescription Acne medications or or over the counter Acne products. You should always check with a doctor before undertaking any home remedy. Some of home remedy for acne turn out to be the best treatments for Acne in the end simply because they are not as hard on the skin. Natural acne treatments or home remedies used to treat Acne should not only take care of any Acne problems that you are having preventing pore blockage but also should moisten and rejuvenates your skin as well.

GARLIC: Garlic is one of natures strongest antibiotic and if you bruise a clove of garlic and rub it on the problem area only. People told me that it did not burn but it did. What did work better for me was to crush the garlic clove in pour a half cup of hot water in a pan. Soak a clean wash cloth in the solution and then apply to the affected areas only. This should within a few days unclog infected pores. It is smelly and should be done before bed then you can wash it off the next morning.

LEMON: There are several things that you can do with fresh lemon. Slice a lemon in half and rub it on the effected area and leave it over night and rinse your face in the morning or squeeze the juice and mix it with rose water and apply to the effected areas.

TEATREE OIL: Teatree oil usually cost about $9-$12 for an 8 to 12 oz bottle and it works wonders on the skin leaving a very refreshing feeling behind because you can actually feel it working cleaning the pores of your skin. I recommend that you dilute it with water first before attempting to use it at full strength. The idea is to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin and anything that leaves extreme discomfort is not good for your skin.

CUCUMBER: This is one of the most gentle and refreshing treatments that I have ever used and not only does it help treat acne but also refreshes the skin and leave your skin looking and feeling younger. What you should do is blend the cucumber into a paste and apply. You can leave it on the skin for 30 to 45 minutes and then wash it off.

ICE: One of the most simple and the least expensive of all is good old fashion ice that you make daily. You can use this at any time and it would take down any swelling that you have caused by Acne but should be used at the onset of a breakout.

There are so many home remedies that I could not even begin to list them all and since everyones skin is different you will have to find which one works well for you. It is important to know to be careful with your skin. Many times out of aggravation we burst a pimple when a simple remedy can be the best solution, and most often not leave a blemish like poking at a pimple normally does. Your skin is an indication of your health and when you have healthy skin then you are a more confident person.
