    Acne Home Remedies

    1. Garlic or lasuna - It is also known as Allium sativum in biological terms.

    It is considered to be one of the best home remedies for acne. Here there are two ways from which you can use either or both. The first method is to crush 2 or more cloves of garlic and apply it to the affected areas two times a day.

    The second option is to chew and swallow one or more clove of garlic every day. The problem is that garlic is a strong smelling agent and you have to cope with it.

    2. Egg White - Crack some eggs and remove the yolks i.e. the yellow of the egg and leaving only the egg whites. Beat these egg whites for some time and apply this to your face or the affected part. Wait for about 15 minutes and wash off the area applied. The purpose of applying the egg whites is to eradicate the excess oil from the skin that promotes early healing of skin and acne.

    3. Toothpaste - It was previously an amateur practice but now it has scientifically proven that toothpaste actually help in curing the acne. Apply it unswervingly to your acne spot before retiring to bed. This is believed to help manage the swelling overnight. Just make sure that it is not the gel tooth paste but the paste.

    There is some medical evidence to support the garlic however using raw eggs on your face is an unessecary risk of expsosing your self to salmonella when there are hundreds of commercialy available face scrubs that are safe and effective. And the toothpaste doesnt treat or speed healing of acne all it will do is reduce the visabilaty of individual pimples witch hazel works as an all natual astringent to help prevent acne outbreaks but does so at a cost it will make your skin incredibly dry

    Aloe Vera, applied 1-2 times per day, helps many people. It takes a week or so before any changes will be noticed. It's cheap, harmless, and can also be used to speed the healing of cuts, burns, etc.

    The juice of the aloe vera plant has been used for thousands of years to treat skin conditions. It is believed that the plant's mucopolysaccharides are the active ingredients that help soothe skin. Aloe doesn't prevent acne, but it can help skin heal and minimize scarring.
