what are some natural acne treatments?

Very weak: Vinegar and tea-tree oil may help some; tea-tree oil has enough estrogen to grow breasts in some teenaged guys, who isn't making the situation easier. Benzoyl peroxide is your best home remedy, and any troublesome case requires a physician's help -- the vitamin a and antibiotic preparations are from nature's own bounty.
