May 28, 2019 Jiva Ayurveda 0

Acne is a chronic inflammation of the skin and mainly affects the face, neck, and chest area. Acne is developed when the follicles or pores of the skin get blocked and infected. Although not a health hazard, it can leave scars. Below are some of the home remedies that can help immensely in clearing up acne.

Orange Peel

Orange is known to have abundant amounts of vitamin C, which helps lighten the acne scars and also get rid of infection, if any. To make this peel, grind orange peel to paste with a little bit of water, and apply on acne-affected areas.

Raw garlic

Raw garlic helps in clearing the skin of spots, pimples, and boils. Cut the clove of garlic in half and rub it on your skin at least two times a day. Also, eating 2-3 cloves of garlic daily will purify the blood and help keep away acne.

Cucumber

Grate cucumber and apply it all over the face, eyes and neck are for fifteen minutes. Use regularly to prevent pimples and blackheads.

Nutmeg

Grind nutmeg with raw milk to make into a paste. You can also use nutmeg powder and mix it with raw milk to form a paste. Apply this paste on the face and leave for a few hours. This will help clear pimples and prevent the appearance of scars.

Honey and Cinnamon

Mix honey and cinnamon powder to make a paste. Apply this paste on the pimple before sleeping and wash it off the next morning with warm water.

Along with these remedies, avoid sugar, strong tea or coffee, condiments, pickles, carbonated drinks, candy and ice creams, and refined and processed foods in your diet. For better results, maintain a healthy diet with lots of fruits, veggies, and plenty of water intake daily.
