Natural Acne Treatment Recipes

We're all aware that acne doesn't give you a pleasant appearance, and though there are plenty of acne removal products out there, it seems as if none of them truly work and deliver long term results. This is why I will be educating you on how to get rid of your acne naturally and how to prevent more acne from breaking out in the future.

The main thing you'll need to keep in mind while trying to get rid of your acne is to never apply harsh acne removal products on your skin, as they could actually worsen your acne and make your skin even more oily. You may be surprised that doing less to your skin could actually do wonders.

Here are some quick and easy natural acne treatment recipes for you to try in place of harsh chemical skin treatments.

Natural Acne Treatment Recipes

Nutmeg and Milk

First, grind 1 or 2 nutmegs and add milk to the nutmeg to form a paste. Once the nutmeg and milk has a very smooth consistency, you can then apply it on your face or other area where you might have acne. Keep the mixture on your face for about 20-25 minutes, then wash your face with lukewarm water. After you rinse your face, you will then notice how soft and clear your face appears and feels; however, just make sure that you are washing your face gently without harsh scrubbing.


Cut open a regular sized tomato, and then make sure that you hold the part that has a stem so that it'll be easier for you to apply it on your face. Gently rub the tomato all over your skin and keep the tomato on our face for about 5-10 minutes. Tomato contains a lot of the essential vitamins and minerals that can really treat and even decease acne. Make sure that you also use lukewarm water when you wash the tomato off because using overly cold or overly hot water can really be harsh to the skin.


Crack open a regular sized egg and then make sure that you separate the egg whites and the egg yolk. Afterwards, beat the egg whites gently and apply the egg whites to your face. Keep this egg-white mask on until it hardens. Once your mask dries, after about 15 minutes, rinse it off with lukewarm water.

You can also use this same procedure with the yolk of the egg, and rinsing it off after it has dried.

Egg whites have the capability to minimize the size of your pores while egg yolk acts as a natural moisturizer.

How To Prevent More Acne From Appearing.

The best and easiest way to prevent acne from reappearing is by drinking lots of water. Water helps remove impurities and toxins from the body. Often we drink sodas and coffee at the expense of pure water, and when we make the switch, we will notice quite an improvement in our skin.

So, if you really want to get rid of your acne, then you should tryout one of the natural remedies above.

If you want to get rid of your acne forever, then make sure that you drink lots of water, sleep deeply, and also eat healthy, minimizing carbs of little or no nutritional value as well as excess sugar. Lack of sleep adds to stress, which is known to cause breakouts, and diet plays a key role in providing the nutrients our skin needs to heal and repair itself.
