When you can just as easily make your own homemade acne treatments, why use expensive and inadequate commercial products?
These quick homemade acne remedies are made with natural and inexpensive ingredients, and with regular use will keep you spot free and promote a more natural tone and balance to the skin.
To give your store bought or homemade acne cure a special healing boost, add vitamins to the mix.
Simply grind one Vitamin A capsule to a very fine powder and add, or pierce a Vitamin E or A capsule and add the oil to any of these treatments.
Your skin will absorb the vitamins and heal much better.
For convenience, make enough of the herbal infusions mentioned in the recipes to last you through the week.
Step 1 is to cleanse your skin twice a day using a homemade cleanser that is recommended for oily skin. Cleansers and scrubs containing oatmeal or cornmeal are extremely affective as they easily absorb excess oils from the skin.
Oatmeal is an excellent cleanser; it's also a very gentle cleanser making it perfect for everyday use in a homemade acne cure.
The olive oil in this scrub softens black heads; this makes them much easier to be removed along with any other oily bacteria that may be trapped within the pores. Lemon is a mild astringent which will help the pores to close, and the parsley is very good for fading any scaring or redness that may be left after an outbreak of spots.
Homemade facial cleansers can easily remove any dirt, old makeup and sweat that may have accumulated on the skin throughout the course of an average day.

In step 2 rinse your face with an astringent and leave it to dry naturally, a cool herbal infusion that's suitable for oily skin will make a very good astringent.
Make a simple herbal infusion for an astringent rinse by using either 1 Tablespoon of fresh chopped herb and 1 teaspoon of dried herb. OR1 Herbal tea bag.
For an astringent rinse that will treat enlarged pores, add 2 tablespoons of cider vinegar to the finished infusion before storing it in the refrigerator.
A good homemade toner will tighten your skin as it closes the pores, and it will remove any leftover traces of your cleanser.
Step 3 involves treating your skin once or twice a week (depending which you choose) to one of our homemade acne treatments. All are very easy and inexpensive to make, yet can make a vast improvement to your skin when used regularly, even if it's just a simple steaming

Comfrey has been used for centuries, and is well known for soothing and healing wounds, sores and burns.
It's also a very moisturizing plant, so you won't be left with dry or dull skin that often comes hand in hand when treating acne.
Use this method once a week, give your skin a simple homemade acne treatment.
Use a ground apple (remove seeds and core but leave the peel on) mixed with 1-3 teaspoons of honey.
Let itdry for 15-20 minutes and rinse with cool water.
Twice a week, dip a cotton ball in witch hazel, herb vinegar (see instructions below) or rubbing alcohol. Rub all over your face (or anywhere you might break out) and rinse immediately.
Don't overuse this homemade remedy for acne, because it will dry your skin and you might start peeling - which is another problem entirely!
