Natural Acne Cures - Do They Exist?


Visitors: 268

Anyone suffering from chronic acne would love to find an easy, inexpensive cure. Many acne sufferers also have sensitive skin that does not respond well to the harsh chemicals found in many popular acne treatment products.

There are natural treatments available that are much more gentle and do not irritate the skin. I would hesitate to call any treatment available today a cure however. A cure and implies that you do something once and the problem is solved. Acne can be treated and managed but you are not simply going to pop a pill and never have another pimple.

When it comes to the “natural" treatments we tend to look at things like dietary factors, vitamin supplements, and herbal treatments. It has never been proven whether one's diet causes acne or not but many people do believe that diet can certainly aggravate the problem. Even in the absence of proof that diet adversely affects one's acne condition a healthy diet is always a good idea. Drinking lots of water is also beneficial to good skin health.

Vitamin supplements may also help to treat or control acne. Many vitamins contain good antioxidants that help to rid the body of toxins which could also help clear up your skin. In addition to vitamin supplements which are taken internally there are also various creams and lotions that are rich in vitamins and are applied directly to the skin.

There are also a lot of herbal treatments that are applied topically. A lot of people like to use Aloe Vera because of its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Another popular treatment uses tea tree oil for its antibacterial and antifungal properties.

There are a million and one “natural cures" and home remedies for acne. There are also lots of good over the counter acne treatment products that use vitamins and herbal ingredients rather than drugs and chemicals. Many of these products work very well but no acne treatment will work for everyone 100% of the time. We are all different and what works for one person may or may not work for somebody else. All we can do is gather as much information as we can to make the best decision possible and then simply try a product or treatment to see if it works for us.
