What Is The Best Natural Treatment For Acne?

Our first reaction is to panic from this embarrassing and burdensome problem and the overwhelming fear that we won’t have any control over the breakouts. But with a few simple tips this fear can be conquered.  Yes, there is natural treatment for acne.

Natural Treatment of Acne

Before calling for an appointment with the dermatologist, there are natural remedies that can be just as effective as medications. The right nutritional balance and proper skin care is all your body needs.

By following these simple tips you are taking the first steps to help heal your acne. In about 4 weeks you should see a noticeable difference.

Tips for Acne Free Skin:

Apply a honey mask

By applying this to your face once or twice a week, the antibacterial properties will disinfect and heal minor blemishes. This is great for those  with sensitive skin.

Use acne soap

Wash your face twice a day with a sulfur based soap specifically designed for acne. Get into a routine of washing your face when you first wake up in the morning and then again before going to bed.

A gentle rotating motion is recommend and be cautious not to scrub your face.

In addition, use a soft washcloth in place of one that is rough.  Avoid over washing your skin as this will encourage your sebaceous glands to produce more sebum, thus creating an increase in acne.

Clean hair

Long hair or bangs are stylish but hair contains oils that can add to acne breakouts. Pull your hair off your face and wash it everyday and after sports or strenuous workouts.

Eat your carrots

Natural Treatment of Acne

Eating your carrots is a great source of carotene (Vitamin A).

Vitamin A prevents acne by strengthening the protective tissue of the skin. This vitamin is crucial for the maintenance and repairs of tissue that skin and the mucous membranes are made of, and helps reduce the production of sebum.

Vitamin A, a powerful antioxidant, is needed to rid your body of toxins.

Take your vitamins

Your skin is a vital organ that is usually neglected.

Depending on nutrition, acne can be a signal that there is something wrong on the inside.

When the body does not receive the proper nutrition it rebels by producing excessive sebum, clogging pores, and reducing the ability for your skin to fight bacteria and heal.


Many makeup products on the market today may contribute to clogging your pores thus causing more pimples and blackheads. Use a water-based makeup if you must wear makeup.

Natural Treatment of Acne


Avoid squeezing

Resist the temptation to pick, squeeze, rub or touch your blackheads and pimples.

These actions increase the sebum production and rupture the membrane below your skin. This can in turn cause an infection and spread the sebum underneath your skin resulting in more pimples.

Clean pillow case 

When your face lies on your pillow case it is absorbing the oils from your skin and collects dirt and oil.  Keeping your sheets and pillow cases clean will decrease breakouts.

Foods rich in Zinc

Zinc is an antibacterial agent that is a necessary element in the oil-producing glands of the skin.  Diets low in zinc may actually cause acne breakouts.

Getting into a good skin care routine takes time and dedication. 

You will need patience, as results will not happen overnight.  However, with time you should see positive results.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I know that a lot of people struggled with acne and it is something that my daughter might also have issues with. I am happy to know that carrots are good at helping this condition because she loves carrots. I will share this post with others who struggle with acne also.

  2. Great article about an interesting topic. These are good, working and cheap tips to acne treatment and taking care of your skin generally. I had a very bad acne problem from teenage to time I was +-25 years old. Tested and used most of all medicines available with no significant results. In my case, a healthy diet and especially tomatoes, berries and hemp products made me to eventually get my acne off. I found also moisturizing creams pretty good solution. However thanks for the good post about acne treatment.

Ouch.  The acne on that poor girls face looks painful.     Recently, I have started having a few breakouts.  I appreciate your tips that show ways that we can treat and/or prevent acne.    I  need to look into changing my pillow cases more often.  It hadn’t occurred to me about the oils from my face getting on the pillow cases.  Yet what you are saying makes sense.   Thanks!
