Grandma - do you have a home remedy for adult acne?
I am 33 now and my acne and scarring seems to be getting worse as I get older instead of better. Any suggestion would be most welcome!

Home Remedies for Acne
by: Grandma


An acne stage is so hard to go through but when you're still dealing with it as an adult it can be extremely frustrating and embarrassing. I'm sure you've tried everything on the market and it's probably making your skin condition worse, those chemicals seem to do that, but then again, how else can they keep a reliable customer?

I'm sure you know diet is a big factor when it comes to acne. Drinking spring water everyday is really important, try not to drink water that has chemicals in it. And avoiding fried foods, like staying away from fast foods is really important. When I was a teenager (a very long time ago :))I was going through the acne stage I started eating an apple everyday. Within a couple of weeks my skin was looking really good. You should try to eat the skin too. You can also rub some of the skin of an apple on your face, it really cam help to rid your face of toxins and will give it a healthy glow.

Honey will help relieve the soreness and actually help clear up the scaring. Honey is amazing for skin eruptions, burns and even sores that won't heal. Making a past of oatmeal and honey makes a really good way to wash your face. Make sure you put the oatmeal in the food processor or blender to make it into a fine powder before mixing it with the honey.

Be extremely careful what kind of soap you're using on your face. Most soaps you buy is nothing more than detergent. Try to find a really mild soap, the best kind is goat milk soap with olive oil. If you can't find this soap then just use the oatmeal and honey mixture to keep your face clean.

You should also try squeezing the juice of a fresh lemon and cover your face with it before going to bed then wash it off in the morning. Lemon juice will help so many skin problems and will get rid of any blackheads.

I'll be writing a page on natural acne home remedies soon, there are so many remedies I could suggest but too much to write about here. I believe what I've suggested to you will really help.

Thank you for trusting in Grandma's Wisdom,
