Try These Acne Herbal Remedies

How effective are Acne herbal remedies for clearer skin? It depends on the which treatment you choose.

A combination of topical and internal herbs and minerals might be effective in achieving clearer and healthier complexion.

And, some suggest they can be especially helpful if your condition is due to hormone imbalance or stress.

Studies - like those found in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science - found that certain herbal remedies like:

  • Rosa damascene
  • licorice
  • Eucalyptus radiate
  • Melaleuca alternifolia
  • Centella asiatica

Worked well to reduce the symptoms of acne and had much less sides effects than synthetic agents and other treatments like hormone and laser therapy.....See Resource Link Below

In addition, dermatologists like Dr. Tess Mauricio (featured on The Doctors' Show) suggests adding natural agents like salicylic acid can help improve complexion and reduce symptoms.

Other Herbs & Natural Remedies

Other herbs to consider - especially if you're dealing with cystic acne type breakouts include:

  • Neem - detoxifier, astringent, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory
  • Chaste Tree - regulates hormone production. Research shows it can help control acne in teens, young women, and men.
  • Forsythia - anti-inflammatory, antibacterial
  • Gardenia - anti-inflammatory
  • Honeysuckle - board spectrum antibiotic
  • Schizonepeta – anti-inflammatory, prevents skin rashes and eruptive skin diseases, alleviates itching
  • Burdock - antimicrobial, lowers blood sugar, antibiotic
  • Dandelion - supports proper liver function, removes excess toxins, increases liver activity, contains vitamins A, D, C, B complexes, silicon, and magnesium
  • Chamomile - anti-inflammatory, stimulates immune system
  • Sarsaparilla - dispels infection and inflammation
  • Milk Thistle - liver tonic, protects liver cells from chemical damage

Again, don't forget to follow up with topical treatments like gentle cleansers and exfoliating serums - like salicylic acid gels.

These are important for clearing up your complexion and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

What Should You Avoid?

Stay away from harsh cleanser and gels like benzoyl peroxide. Why? Because while they may work in the beginning - they usually cause a Rebound Effect.

A rebound effect is where you try a product, start to see some results and then suddenly - a few weeks later - the pimples and inflammation is back.

Why does this happen? - Usually, it's because the product too harsh and caused more oil to be produced. Also, many acne remedies do not address other issues like bacteria, improper detoxification, or hormonal imbalances.

For best results, it may be a good idea to combine gentle topical remedies along with herbal supplements - which together - may offer a better fighting chance to improve your complexion internally and externally.
