One of the most common natural treatments that will work for adult acne is honey. Mixed with a bit of cinnamon and rubbed on the affected site, honey will naturally moisturize the skin while the cinnamon attacks the bacteria that cause adult acne. Another natural treatment is lemon juice. By rubbing lemon juice on the affected site, the bacteria are killed and the oil is absorbed so that the skin can heal. Peroxide works as well, but can sometimes result in peeling skin.
Thyme is another herb that is recommended to use for getting rid of pimples. Thyme also works well as an astringent. Combine one and a half cups of water with four tablespoons of dried thyme. Steep it for a half hour. Strain it and pour the liquid into a glass and refrigerate it. Use it to rinse the face daily.
Using vinegar or citrus juice to wash your face is a healthier alternative to using chemical face washes because there are no chemicals and no breakouts. It is the body's natural reaction to try to reject substances that are seemingly harmful to the body. When something goes onto the skin, it enters into the blood stream. Chemicals can cause acne to begin to develop within a few hours. Using vinegar and citrus juice is also effective for drying out oily skin. Too much oil can cause breakouts and clog pores, leading to acne.
Consider adding vitamins and natural supplements to your diet such as vitamin A to help reduce sebum production, zinc to help heal blemishes, reduce inflammation and reduce androgenic hormonal effects, and vitamin B6 which may help premenstrual or midcycle acne.
Soak the end of a cotton swab in calamine lotion, and apply the lotion to the active acne breakouts on your chest. Let the lotion dry completely, then leave it on for at least 1 hour. Rinse off the calamine lotion with warm water. These are great as they remove the dead skin cells and clear your pores as well. If you are on a budget, then you can buy your own facial creams. Try and always buy as natural products as you can. You apply the cream, rub it in good and rinse off. Some facials come with gels that you apply after. The gel becomes a mask and you just have to peel it off when dry. These kinds of facials are perfect for removing blackheads and whiteheads and they are tinted acne medication as well.
