Natural Treatment for Acne

Acne is a skin disease that involves the oil glands at the base of hair follicles. Acne commonly occurs during puberty when the sebaceous (oil) glands come to life - the glands are stimulated by male hormones produced by the adrenal glands of both males and females.

Causes

  • Everyone has acne-causing bacteria living on their skin, but researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine have identified that there are “good” and “bad” strains of the bacteria, which determine the frequency and severity of developing pimples.
  • Acne also appears when a pore in our skin blocks. This block begins with dead skin cells which rise to surface of the pore, and the body sheds the cells. When the body starts to make lots of sebum oil that keeps our skin from drying out, the dead skin cells can stick together inside the pore. Instead of rising to the surface, the cells become trapped inside the pore.

Treatment

  • Pounded with water (rain water if possible) the peels of the orange and applied twice daily before going to bed will help in this problem and even pimples.
  • Fresh lemon juice also offers the best remedy for acne. Cut lemon into half and rub over the affected area thoroughly before retreating to bed. Continue with this procedure daily until the acne disappears.

I hope this will help you clear stubborn Acne on your skin surface!
