Home Remedies For Acne

Skin is the largest organ of the human body. An average-sized adult has about 17 square feet of skin. Thick or thin, it weighs about five pounds.

Five pounds of skin covering 17 square feet of body surface...that's a lot of room for eruptions, cuts, sores, grazes, scrapes, scratches and itches.

Someone named Anonymous once said, "Dermatology is the best specialty. The patient never dies-and never gets well."

We hope these treatments will prove Mr. Anonymous wrong about that last point.


  • When dirt and oil plug up your skin's pores, you can get acne (whiteheads and blackheads). If bacteria gets trapped, then the skin gets red and inflamed-and you get pimples.

For a quick zit-zapper, try using a few of these home remedies.

  • Wet a clean, white cloth with your first urine of the day and pat it on the pimply areas.

Better than your own urine is the urine of a baby. If you have access to an infant's wet diaper, apply it to the affected areas and you'll see amazing results within a short period of time.

  • Compared with the urine remedy for acne, this solution may be easier to take, but it's harder to make.

Combine 4 ounces of grated horseradish with a pint of 90-proof alcohol. Add a pinch of grated nutmeg and a chopped up bitter orange peel (available at health food stores). With sterilized cotton, dab some of this solution on each pimple every morning and every evening.

Acne Antidotes

The following acne home remedies may not produce dramatic results overnight. Select one and stay with it for at least two weeks. If there's no improvement by then, try another remedy.

  • This South American remedy was given to us by Las Vegas-based herbalist Angela Harris, who has used it to clear up the faces of many.

Wash with mild soap and hot water. Then apply a thin layer of extra-virgin, cold-pressed olive oil. Do not wash it off. Let the skin completely absorb the olive oil. (Angela emphasized the importance of using "extra-virgin olive oiL")

Do this three times a day. Angela's experience has been that the skin clears up within a week. For maintenance, wash and oil once a day.

  • Once a day; take 1/3 cup uncooked oats and, in a blender, pulverize them into a powder. Then add water-a little less than 1/3 cup-so . that it becomes the consistency of paste. Apply the paste to the pimples. Leave this soothing and healing mush on until it dries up and starts crumbling off. Wash it all off with tepid water.

NOTE: Always wash your face with tepid water. Hot water can cause the breaking of capillaries (small veins), as can cold water.

  • Using a juice extractor, juice one cucumber. With a pastry brush, apply the cucumber juice to the trouble spots. Leave it on for at least 15 minutes, then wash off with tepid water. Do this daily.
  • Once a day; boillh cup of buttermilk. While it's hot, add enough honey to give it a thick, creamy consistency. With a pastry brush, brush the cooled mixture on the acne. Leave it on for at least 15 minutes. Wash off with tepid water.
  • This is an industrial-strength acne remedy taken internally. Before breakfast-or as you eat breakfast-on the first day; start with 2 teaspoons of brewer's yeast, 1 tablespoon of lecithin granules and 1 tablespoon of cold-pressed saffiower oil, all mixed in one glass of pure apple juice.

On the second day; add another teaspoon of brewer's yeast and another teaspoon of lecithin granules. Each day; add another teaspoon of brewer's yeast and lecithin granules until you're taking 2 tablespoons (6 teaspoons) of brewer's yeast and almost the same amount of lecithin, along with the 1 tablespoon of safflower oil, all mixed in one glass of apple juice.

As this detoxifies your system and rids you of acne, it should give you added energy and shiny hair.

NOTE: It is advisable to do this process only with medical supervision-and if you can stay near a bathroom.

  • Mix the juice of two garlic cloves with an equal amount of vinegar and dab it on the pimples every evening. The condition may clear up in a couple of weeks.
  • Simmer one sliced medium onion in 1/2 cup of honey until the onion is soft. Then mash the mixture into a smooth paste. Make sure it's cool before applying it to blemishes. Leave it on at least one hour, then rinse off with warm water. Repeat the procedure every evening until you can say, "Look Ma, no pimples!"
  • Eat brown rice regularly. It contains amino acids that are good for skin blemishes.
  • About four hours before bedtime, steep 1 cup of mashed strawberries in 2 cups (1 pint) of distilled white vinegar. Let it steep until you're ready for bed. Then strain the pulp and seeds. Massage the remaining liquid on your face and have a good night's sleep.

It's not as messy as it sounds. The liquid dries on your face before you touch the pillow. In the morning, wash off the mix with cool water. This is an excellent cleanser and astringent for blemished skin.

Home Remedies For Acne Scars

  • To help remove acne scars, combine 1 teaspoon of powdered nutmeg with 1 teaspoon of honey and apply it to the scarred area. After 20 minutes, wash it off with cool water.

Do this twice a week, and hopefully within a couple of months you will see an improvement.

Home Remedies For Blackheads

  • Before going to bed, rub lemon juice over the blackheads. Wait until morning to wash off the juice with cool water. Repeat this procedure several evenings in a row, and you'll see a big improvement in the skin.
