Natural Acne Remedies


Many companies today offer natural acne remedies as an alternative to conventional acne treatments. Do these products work?

The manufacturers claim they do. Plenty of satisfied customers say they do. The problem with herbal acne remedies lies in the lack of scientific evidence.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) governs pharmaceutical products. However, there is no such agency to validate the health related claims of herbal products so, you must rely on your own judgement. So how do you decide whether or not herbal treatments and natural acne remedies are effective? Trial and error. Research various herbs to learn what their special health properties are. For example:

    Echinacea– taken internally reduces inflammation and promotes healing.
    Aloe Vera– applied topically has antibacterial and astringent properties.
    Tea Tree Oil– is a versatile and powerful antiseptic used to disinfect minor wounds.

Study the ingredients in natural acne remedies. If they contain herbs with the healing properties that you desire – try them. Experimenting with various herbal acne remedies and measuring your own results is the best way to determine their effectiveness. It is interesting to note that your liver plays an important role regarding acne.

Acne is caused by a surge of hormones, more specifically, male hormones during various stages in life such as puberty, pregnancy and menopause. When hormone levels become excessive, sebaceous glands produce too much oil. This oil along with dirt and dead skin cells becomes trapped in pores causing acne.

The liver is your body’s purifier. It works to clear your body of excessive toxins and hormones. Improving your liver function helps to rid your body of excess hormones thereby improving your acne. Milk Thistle is commonly used for cleansing and strengthening the liver.

The best advice regarding natural acne remedies is to do your homework. Choose herbal supplements that are explicitly labeled from a reputable company and try them.

You may be pleasantly surprised by the results!
