13 Home Remedies to Remove Acne

Acne is a long term skin disease that occurs when dead skin cells and oil from the skin clog hair follicles. Typical features of the condition include blackheads or whiteheads, pimples , oily skin , and possible scarring.
Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in the world affecting an estimated 85% of people at some point in their lives.
Conventional acne treatments can be expensive and often have undesirable side effects like dryness, redness and irritation.
This has prompted many people to look into how to cure acne naturally at home. The internet is filled with suggestions, but do natural treatments actually work?

WHAT CAUSES ACNE?

Acne starts when the pores in your skin get clogged with oil and dead skin cells.
Each pore is connected to a sebaceous gland, which produces an oily substance called sebum. Extra sebum can plug up pores causing the growth of a bacteria known as propionibacterium acnes or P. acnes.
Your white blood cells attack P. acnes leading to skin inflammation and acne. Some causes of acne are more severe than others, but common symptoms include whiteheads, blackheads and pimples.
Many factors contribute to the development of acne, including genetics, diet, stress, hormone changes and infections.

 THE REMEDIES ARE AS FOLLOWS:-

# APPLY APPLE CIDER VINEGAR:-

Apple cider vinegar is made by fermenting apple cider or the unfiltered juice from pressed apples.
Like other vinegars, it is known for its ability to fight many types of bacteria and viruses.
Apple cider vinegar contains several organic acids that have been shown to kill P. acnes.
In particular succinic acid has been shown to suppress inflammation caused by P. Acnes, which may prevent scarring.
Also, lactic acid has been shown to improve the appearance of acne scars. What’s more, apple cider vinegar may help dry up the excess oil that causes in the first place.

HOW TO USE IT

@ Mix 1 part apple cider vinegar and 3 parts water.
@ After cleansing , gently apply the mixture to the skin using a cotton ball.
@ Let sit for 5-20 seconds, rinse with water and pat dry.
@ Repeat this process 1-2 times per day, as needed.
It is important to note that applying apple cider vinegar to your skin can cause burns and irritation, so it should always be used in small amounts and diluted with water.

# TAKE A ZINC SUPPLEMENT:-

 Zinc is an essential nutrient that’s important for cell growth, hormone production, metabolism and immune function.
It is also one of the most studied natural treatments for acne. Research shows that people with acne tend to have lower levels of zinc in their blood than those with clear skin.
Several studies have shown that taking zinc orally helps reduce acne.
In one study 48 acne patients were given oral zinc supplement three times per day. After eight weeks 38 patients experienced an 80-100% reduction in acne.
The optimal dosage of zinc for acne has not been established but several studies have shown a significant reduction in acne using 30-45 mg of elemental zinc per day.
Elemental zinc refers to the amount of zinc that’s present in the compound. Zinc is available in many forms and each one contains a different amount of elemental zinc.
Zinc oxide contains the highest amount of elemental zinc at 80%
The recommended safe upper limit of zinc is 40 mg per day, so it is probably best not to exceed that amount unless under the supervision of a medical doctor. Taking too much of zinc may cause adverse effect including stomach pain and gut irritation.
It is also important to note that applying zinc to the skin has not been shown to be very effective. This may be because zinc is not effectively absorbed by the skin.
