Home Remedies for Acne Vulgaris

Acne or acne vulgaris is a skin problem, very widespread among teenagers and youngsters. When a person attains puberty, his or her sebaceous glands or oil glands become proactive, secreting excess sebum or oil that clog skin pores and inflame hair follicles, resulting in a series of skin problems collectively named as ‘acne’. The pores are congested not only by sebum, but also by dry skin and dirt and a build up of bacteria that worsen acne conditions.

Home Remedies :

1. Wash your face (or other affected skin) gently one or two times a day.

2. Use over-the-counter medicated creams, soaps, lotions, and gels to treat your acne. Always read the label carefully to make sure you are using the product correctly.

3. Do not squeeze pimples, because that often leads to infections, worse acne, and scars.

4. Use water-based skin care products that gently clean your skin. Avoid products such as milky cleansers, cold creams, lipsticks, and lip glosses that contain oils.
