No magic potions! There are no proven home remedies for acne, but eating a healthy diet, being happy, and living a low-stress lifestyle may help. Washing the face 2-3 times a day is fine, but over-scrubbing and irritating the skin makes acne worse. Over-the-counter Benzoyl Peroxide Gel can help. A doctor can prescribe medicines and look for other medical problems if acne is a lot, or if obesity is also present.
Helping acne at home. The best remedies are common sense. Don't use irritating cleansers, such as those with "scrubbing beads". They are like sandpaper. Moderate your intake of carbs and dairy. Carbs feed the bacteria in our skin, making them overgrow. This alerts the body to send in the inflammation soldiers. Dairy has pieces of hormone in it which are recombined in our bodies and activate our glands.
