Are You Looking for a Home Remedy For Zits?

Acne treatments are expensive and often ineffective. So, if you’re looking to try a home remedy for zits as part of your overall treatment plan, I have a few suggestions for you.

Before we begin, I would like to add that it is possible to cure your acne. Yes, I said cure your acne and you can do it permanently. It doesn’t require any medications or expensive medical procedures. What it does require is knowledge, persistence, commitment and some time.

If you’re interested in learning more practical information about acne, it’s root causes and some of the things in your daily life that may be contributing to this complex medical condition, you may want to read some of my other articles.

Ok, let’s get started.

#1 Home remedy for zits – Diet. Or should I say food choices. Many foods have dramatic influences on the inflammatory process, either they work against it (an anti-inflammatory) or they make it worse (inflammatory agent). Some foods also have anti-microbial effects. This means that they have properties that can actually kill or suppress the growth of bacteria. One of the the foods that have been demonstrated to have both anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial effects is garlic. No, you don’t rub garlic on your skin. That’s a sure fire way to make your social life worse than having acne issues. However, eating raw garlic can help with reducing cellular inflammation and work to kill the bacteria that may be contributing to your acne issues. Ginger is another good food for this.

#2 Home remedy for zits – Topical treatments. I don’t usually like to recommend topical treatments for acne because they usually imply using the latest fad cream and I am very passionate about treating acne naturally and holistically. So in this case there are a few options I have for you that have been scientifically documented to increase the bodies ability to heal and in terms of the skin have been very effective. Aloe Vera is an excellent source of natural healing power. It’s so effective that it’s used commercially in all kinds of products. Using Aloe Vera is simple. Just cut off a small portion of one of the leaves and apply the wet, slimy juice to your skin. Allow it to dry and rinse off. Aloe also helps reduce inflammation in the skin and can be eaten as well. Honey has been used for it’s anti-microbial effects all over the world for some time. When applied directly to a lesion, or in this case a pimple, for approximately 15 minutes, this may help kill the bacteria that are contributing to your acne.

#3 Home remedy for zits – Express yourself. That’s sort of a play on words, but it does apply. Look, there are one of two things that are going to make that pimple staring at you in the mirror go away. Te first one is that the body will kill the bacteria in the skin, then it will dissolve and remove the contents within the pore and the skin will heal from the inside out. The second possibility is that the pimple will rupture, the contents will be forced out and the body will continue with the healing process. If done correctly and safely it is possible to express the contents of the pimple out of the pore and allow the body to do the rest.

These are steps you can easily and inexpensively apply today. These are very basic and highly specific methods that can be applied for most people. Just remember, it is possible to get dramatic and lasting results if you gain the knowledge you need to address acne at it’s root causes.

I recommend finding a good resource of practical information about acne, take the knowledge you gain and apply it to your specific circumstance.

Good luck and happy learning.
