Acne is a skin condition that is no longer limited to teens. We discussed this in my previous article on this topic, Adult Acne Causes – Why Acne is No Longer a Teen Problem. We are exasperated to see even a single pimple on our face because it greatly affects our looks. While medical treatments can be tried out especially if you experience acne on a regular basis. But for the treatment of a single and small pimple, some home remedies for adult acne would be great.
Here we discuss the top 3 home remedies for the treatment of acne, which are quick and easy tips on which you don’t have to spend lots of money.
Home Remedies for Adult Acne
Garlic has miraculous properties when it comes to acne and pimples.
Apart from popular medical treatments, adult acne can also be cured by some home remedies. A clove of garlic can do wonders to your skin without any side effects. You can use raw garlic and rub it gently on the pimple and leave it on for sometime. Wash the face off and pat it dry. The anti inflammatory and anti bacterial properties of the garlic would certainly bring the acne bump down and it would heal in a few days without leaving any scars.
2. Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is known for its amazing anti acne properties. It can be used in the form of a cleanser or a face wash. Tea tree oil can also be mixed with some cream to give the desired results. You can find it easily on Amazon in the form of therapeutic grade essential oil. It is one of those oils that you always need to keep at home. It has amazing anti-fungal and antiseptic properties.
Use it on your face directly or blend with some essential oil to get rid of its distinct and strong aroma.
3. Tomato Juice
Tomato juice is very beneficial for acne as it clears it out completely along with the blemishes and the scars which are left by the acne. Take out juice of one tomato and apply on the effected areas. Leave it on for twenty minutes and wash off with water. Continue this treatment for a couple of weeks and you will notice the results.
I hope you will find these home remedies for adult acne very easy to use and inexpensive at the same time. We suggest seeing a dermatologist if you have a severe acne problem with other skin issues too. Certainly it will be advisable to treat the conditions by looking at their causes before suggesting any treatment. However, you may use these home remedies in connection with a medical treatment for better and quicker results.
