Acne Homemade Remedies - Simple and Easy Herbal Face Washes.

The search for authentic acne homemade remedies goes back many centuries and today there is an ever increasing interest in the uses for herbs and their healing properties.

This acne page is devoted to a facet of herbal remedies that shows exactly how good traditional herbal face washes can be used as another natural solution to acne.

The skin is a living dynamic organ that "breathes" and requires love and attention if we don't want the ZITS!!

If the pores become clogged, the microbes that are involved in causing acne love this type of environment and they just flourish and grow.

This must be eliminated by cleansing the skin properly, and with the proper products.

Acne Homemade Remedies - Herbal Face Washes

Take a look at some simple solutions that can be used as an ordinary, but effective face wash for blemish control using fresh or dried herbs.

Everyday ailments, including acne, respond well to herbal healing, but remember to always consult your doctor or herbal practitioner if you suspect any serious health disturbances or have any chronic warning symptoms.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Why is apple cider vinegar good for the skin you might ask, well......

  • Apple Cider Vinegar is known to promote blood circulation and is also generally accepted as a top class antiseptic.

  • Apple Cider Vinegar is rich in alpha-hydoxy acids which help dissolve fatty deposits on the skin and is regularly used in cosmetic peels.

  • Apple cider vinegar, when diluted with water is a natural astringent (causing skin to contract) and used to tone and revitalize the skin.

  • You can apply apple cider vinegar, without diluting, directly onto spots and pimples to help speed the healing process.

  • And lastly, apple cider vinegar contains potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and many more vital minerals, all good for promoting and maintaining a glowing healthy skin.

Witch Hazel

Witch Hazel, when used externally as a face wash or face cream, has great natural anti-inflammatory qualities, and is also soothing and cooling to the skin.

Prepare the witch hazel as one would a herbal infusion and then use as a natural face wash twice a day for soothing and prevention of acne.

A Healthy Nursery Rhyme

The best six doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air
Exercise and diet.

These six will gladly you attend
If only you are willing
Your mind they'll ease
Your will they'll mend
And charge you not a shilling.

~Nursery rhyme quoted by Wayne Fields, What the River Knows, 1990.
