Acne is not a new disease. Human beings have been suffering from this skin condition for a long time. Scientists have been trying to solve the problem of acne for many years. The reasons for acne are many.
Before looking for home remedies of acne, if we understand the reasons for acne, it will be beneficial. Some people suffer from acne and some don’t. The reason is over active oil glands in the body. If the skin pores are blocked, the oil produced by the glands will not be able to come out. The end result is a boil on your face. It could get infected and it can cause lots of damage to your skin. It seems there is no hard and fast rule as to who will suffer from acne and who will not. Prevention is therefore better than cure.
Diet is important:
Make sure that you are eating right. You need to eat lots of fruits and vegetables; particularly citrus fruits because they contain antioxidants. They help in preventing pimples and skin damage. You can rub the juice of such fruits on the affected area. If need be, you may dilute the juice with some water. Apply the juice on the affected area and leave it on for 5 minutes. Then wash your face with clean water.
One of the reasons of acne is bacterial infection. To combat this infection, you could use raw garlic. Garlic has anti bacterial properties. Hence it can be very helpful in treating pimples, boils and any spots on your face. If you improve your intake of citrus fruits and start including garlic in your diet, it will help cleanse your blood and thus prevent outbreak of acne.
Another of the home remedies of acne is the use of fenugreek leaves. Take fresh leaves of fenugreek and make a paste out of it. You can apply the paste on your face. Leave the paste on your face for sometime and then wash off with warm water. It is safe to leave it on over night.
If you want to prevent black heads and pimples on your face, another significant home remedy is use of cucumber. You grate the cucumber or extract juice from it. Apply the grated cucumber or the juice on the affected area. Leave it on for about 20 minutes. Then wash it off. This will help you to take care of under eye black spots as well.
If you have a very oily skin then the chances of you suffering from acne are more. To get rid of excess oil from your face take some curd. Mix some Bengal lentil powder into it and apply that mixture on your face. Leave it on your face for about 15-20 minutes. Wash it off with warm water. There are many such home remedies of acne. It will be helpful to remember that if the out break of acne is severe then it is better you go to a dermatologist and get treated.
