10 Natural Skin Care For Acne


Acne can be very annoying. I had a few ones sometime and they will disappear in few days. But for some women, acne especially on the face could be a very serious problem. Acne could cause infection of the skin surface and it may make some women stress and feel lack of confidence. Many women have tried many kind of acne's medications, treatments, and acne remedies. But sometime they won't work or expensive, so why don't you try the natural way to deal with acne ? To have an acne-free face is almost impossible. Acne is a natural thing in our hormonal system. Teens are normal to have some acne when they reach certain age. But we can try some natural skin cares to reduce acne and get a clearer and healthier face.

1. Apply Tomatoes Masker
Tomato is great for acne treatment and skin care. Tomato contains lycopene that's good for skin's health. Beside lycopene, it contains biological protein, phosphorus, iron, sulfur, vitamin A, B1, and C.
Tomato mask is very nutritious. It will make acne dry and remove the black stain of acne scars.

How to make a mask of tomato:
- Cut some tomatoes and blend them.
- Add natural lemon juice, mix well

How to use:
- Apply to the face and neck before go to bed
- Let it applied until next morning.
- Rinse with warm water
We can use tomato mask as daily skin care. After we apply the masker do some gentle massage in the face and neck about 15 minutes and rinse it with warm water.

2. Drink Plenty of Water
Drink plenty of water is great to avoid dehydration. It will make our skin delicate and clear. Water will remove poisons inside the body and healthy body could reflect from the healthy skin. Drink at least 2.5 litre water daily.

3. Wash your face with PH balance soap
Specially after outdoor activities. Always wash your face and apply facial soap with suitable PH.

4. Apply Corn Masker.       
 This is a traditional recipe from some people in Indonesia. Like tomato masker, use grated young corns and apply it as face masker. Or, mix some table salt with lemon juice or star fruit juice and apply it to the face as an astringent.
We can use it as daily skin care too. It's okay because the mask is from natural ingredients.

5. Guava Leaf Masker
Indonesian people have many kind of natural acne treatment. Like this guava leaf masker. Guava is a tropical fruit so it may a little hard to find in western countries. But, there are some people who tried this method and it worked.

How to make Guava leaf masker :
- Take some guava leaves. Smash them
- Add some rose water.
- Apply the masker in your face about 15 minutes and rinse it with warm water.

6. Apply Warm Honey in your face especially at the acne location. Like ancient Egyptian tale, Cleopatra used honey to have a delicate skin. She used it as daily skin care. We could try it too. Heat some honey and apply it in the acne in warm condition. Let it there about 10 minutes and rinse it with warm water.

7. Cinnamon
Try this, mix some cinnamon powder with water and apply it to the skin. Wash it with warm water and do it about one week. Some people in my country did that to remove the black stain and acne scars.

8. Eat a lot of Basil and Parsley
Basil and parsley could help reduce acne and make your skin healthy. Eat a lot of vegetables and fruits also great for skin care. I eat a lot of raw basil and always spread parsley in my meal.

9. Massage
Massage could release stress. Anxiety and stress could stimulate acne so anything you can do that can naturally eliminate, reduce, or make your anxiety tolerable and lower, is going to ultimately benefit your skin. Have you ever heard people refer to the “happy glow”? Well, when your mind is at peace or happy, your skin tends to follow suit. Of course there are other elements like diet, exercise and hormones that enter into it, but funny how these all tend to follow one another when you’re in your best states of mind. You tend to eat right, exercise more and look better when you’re happier, and vice versa

Happy and relax mind could reduce acne. My mom once said, if you had acne, just don't think about it. More you think about it, it spread faster. I don't know if it true or not, but think is related to mind so if I feel mad about the acne, it may stimulate another acne's growth.

Avoid touching and popping your pimples, it actually can push germs under your skin, which in turn can create additional redness, pain, as well as infection. Remember: popping pimples could sometimes lead to permanent scarring!

10.  Cucumber and White egg.
Mixer some white egg until stiff and add some cucumber into it. Stir well and blend it. Apply it to your face and leave it about 15 minutes. Then wash your face with warm water. Do it regularly twice a week until the acne disappear.

Those tips just some suggestions to have daily and natural skin care for acne treatments. But if the acne has been terribly growing, you should ask the dermatologist for treatment and medications. We have to take it seriously, because sometime acne could lead to another big disease. I mean acne could be a sign or symptoms of another serious disease like cancer.

Good luck !

These are great tips. I have been trying the Apple Cider Vinegar remedy for acne and it has been working wonders. I've heard of using tomatoes as well but haven't tried it yet.

Thank's Vishal. Have a great time!

Vishal Vishwakarma from India on March 13, 2011:

Very good information about how to use natural skin care tips for acne.

Carrie on February 04, 2011:

There are some cases where trying all of the things listed above does not work.

febriedethan (author) from Indonesia on December 22, 2010:

@surefirekim, I also believe that natural skin care can be so much powerful, because I live in Indonesia where there are many natural resources that really useful for the skin health.

Many women in my country still use natural cosmetic to take care of their skin. Thank you for commenting.

@lilykirkpatrick, lemon juice is great, thank you for visiting.

Wanda from Randallstown, MD on December 10, 2010:

I've tried just about everything including the tomatoe paste .. if I am just having a case of mild acne ... I dilute lemon juice and massage it into my skin, in a circular motion, so my skin can really absorb the juice .. let it sit for about 20 minutes and rinse off, with mild water ... oh and toothpast is another one I like to use ..

SureFireKim on November 29, 2010:

Ahh - Finally something natural !

I'm a firm believer of everything natural including skin care. I wrote 2 hubs so far on natural skin care. I wish to write at least 200 more. There is no awareness that natural skin care can be powerful and effective.

If you find my hubs useful, please vote up. That would give me confidence that there are some people who still relentlessly fighting against $35 billion cosmetic industry (not regulated by anything other than their greed).

febriedethan (author) from Indonesia on November 28, 2010:

Hi sara, before you apply anything to your face, I think you should go visit the dermatologist to check the real condition of the scars. Consume a lot of water, fresh vegetables and fruits to help the medication work well.

I hope it helps. good luck :)

@Karhubpages, you're most welcome, I hope it works for you!

@Mara, thank you for visiting. I'm so happy for you, I hope your acne will gone all. Congratulations!!

Mara on August 09, 2010:

I had really bad acne breakouts. Severe, red skin every where but thankfully no cystic. Anyway, I didn't want to try ProActive or any of that because it would only dry out my very sensitive skin and waste money. So I tried home remedies. I tried:

%3 Hydrogen Peroxide

Cinnamon powder,


White Sugar,

and a very small amount of vineger.

I used warm and cold water with a soft sponge.

I also used a scrubber for my lips.

It took me three days to stop breaking out and almost completely remove all of my acne. I put together this system from information on this site. Thank you! I've had acne all my life, even when I was a child. Though I've never really been teased, a felt really terrible about it. I think that if I follow this routine, my acne will be gone in about a week!

karhubpages from India on July 24, 2010:

That's really interesting! The tomato idea is a new one, I'm going to try it before I take a shower because it sounds a little messy :-)

febriedethan (author) from Indonesia on May 12, 2010:

krizza, I'm afraid you 're allergic with cinnamon powder, please stop and ask some advice from the dermatologist. Some people here are really ok with that mixture, they even mix the cinnamon powder with honey, but there are also people which face turn red or their acne are getting worse because they're allergic with the cinnamon.

krizza on May 12, 2010:

i've tried putting cinnamon powder with a mixture of water nd i washed it up with warm water. after i dried my face, i noticed my face tured red. y is that so ?

Nice hub.

febriedethan (author) from Indonesia on April 12, 2010:

Hi Kanthimathi, acne scars are really annoying, I can understand, I think you may try to apply the aloe vera every morning to your acne scars but you have to be patient because it takes about 6 months or longer, or try to apply lemon juice or apple vinegar to the scars.

I hope some will work for your scars, thank you for visiting!
