TREATING ACNE AT HOME

Acne is quite a common problem suffered by individuals usually at the time, puberty hits, or maybe due to some hormonal imbalance. Acne develops when empty pores and follicles get clogged or infected with bacteria or dead skin cells. In case, this is not treated well in time, it may lead to permanent scars on your face. To treat the scars, you can use no scars face cream, but it is better to treat acne than to treat the scars. For treating acne, you can use several home remedies that are proven to be quite effective, reduce inflammation, kill bacteria, and prevent you from future acne breakouts. Here, we shall discuss some of these remedies to treat acne at home.

Before, going to bed, you can apply a few drops of this oil over the acne sores and leave it overnight.

ALOE VERA: 

Aloe Vera is much recommended for all types of skin problems. It is a very good moisturizer as it contains a lot of water and thus is very good for people suffering from dry skin by use of other products for treating acne. First of all, clean the acne sores and then apply aloe vera gel all over the affected area, leave until dry and then rinse your face with cold water. Use it at least once a day.

HONEY:

To treat acne, people add more garlic to their diet. You can also consume it raw, roasted, or in form of a drink.
