Acne affects around 50 million people in the US, and it’s not just something that teenagers get. There are various natural ways to treat inflammation and find some acne relief, and in many cases these can be more effective than using one of the over the counter medications. Some of the best tried and tested home remedies for acne include brewer’s yeast, zinc and tea tree oil. Many people claim a raw honey mask can help, when applied to affected areas every couple of days, and apple cider vinegar, witch hazel and fresh mint leaves are all said to work in helping fight outbreaks. Your lifestyle can also make a difference, and avoiding, or at least cutting back on dairy products, greasy foods, gluten and sugar is recommended. And simply drinking plenty of fresh water daily can help, as it helps to eliminate impurities and toxins.
