7 Herbal Remedies for Acne & Pesky Pimples


Herbal remedies are great for pimples sufferers. Often the natural remedies can be less harsh than over the counter drugs, and they can provide the same results. Herbal remedies can also be less expensive than buying treatment after treatment or a visit to the dermatologist.

Tea Tree oil: Tea tree oil has natural anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce the redness and swelling of pimples in nose. It is less harsh than peroxide, but tea tree oil can take a little longer to provide results. If you want to use tea tree oil mix a few drops into some water and apply directly to the skin.

Green tea. This magical hippie juice also has anti-inflammatory properties with the added benefits of antioxidants. To use green tea just place a bag of it over the problem area and leave it for a few minutes, or use chilled green tea as a face cleanser.

Ice. Rubbing ice over pimples can reduce redness, swelling, and pain. The ice’s coldness tightens the skin and pores and penetrates the skin to soothe pimples irritation.

Natural oil cleansing is gentler than traditional cleansing. Soap is normally of a higher PH level than the skin, and so it can strip skin of the natural protective layer. Using too much soap can also lead to wrinkles and early aging. Using natural oils to cleanse the skin will help to promote healthy glowing skin by nourishing it with the vitamins that skin needs. This method generally uses castor oil and sunflower seed oil. To apply just massage these two oils into the skin and allow time for absorption.

Deep Cleansing Mask: This mask uses Bentonite clay, raw honey and lavender and Chamomile oils to gently remove impurities from the skin, while deeply penetrating all seven layers to nourish and moisturize the skin. To use this mask, just mix the ingredients together and rub onto the face in a circular motion. Allow mask to harden and then remove with hot water and pat dry.

Coconut oil: Coconut oil can be applied to the skin to get rid of pimples naturally. The oil is rich in vitamin E, Fatty acids, and anti-inflammatory agents. When applied to the skin the body will convert the acids naturally found in coconut oil into a protective barrier. The oil prevents inflammation and replenishes skin’s natural defensive. The vitamin E will help to nourish the skin and create a healthy glow. Victoria Secret models also claim that they frequently drink coconut water because it enhances the skin’s natural glow. While there is no evidence that coconut water can fight pimples the nutrients that are found in it are definitely good for the skin.

Sea Salt can help to clear up pimples by nourishing the skin while drying up any excess oil from the sebum glands. It gently moisturizes the skin, and most people report a reduction in pimples after using. It leaves the skin feeling light and refreshed, and unlike harsh facial cleansers, for oily moisturizers, it can be left on continuously.
