Simple And Easy Home Remedies For Acne

24 Aug

Acne is a common skin condition that results into pimples, whiteheads, blackheads, pinheads, skin breakouts, red scaly skin or even large papules. Occurring mostly during adolescence due to increase in testosterone, acne generally goes away with time. Acne is caused by the blockage in the follicles and excessive formation of oil in the skin. There can also be internal causes for acne such as stress, junk food, pollution, alcohol etc. Knowing the right cause certainly helps to deal with the root of the problem, but the milder form of acne can be dealt by basic home remedies. Although, severe cases of acne must immediately be consulted with the dermatologist; here are some of the simple and easy home remedies for acne condition.

Toothpaste is an effective home remedy for acne; however be careful and don’t use tartar toothpaste, as it may contain some chemicals that might not be suitable for the skin. Also, tingling sensation on the skin, at the application of toothpaste is normal, but if you experience sharp burning sensation, rinse it off immediately
