Let’s talk about acne treatments. If you suffer from acne you have probably tried all kinds of treatment options. There are the creams, cleansers and even over the counter and prescription medications. But have you also given natural acne treatments a try?.

1) Diet And Hydration

2) The Power Of The Sun
Another very simple but extremely effective thing to do is to stick your face in the sun once a day. Do your best to get out in the sun at least once a day for a few minutes. It will ensure your body can produce plenty of Vitamin D and will help keep your skin healthy.

3) Drinking Green Tea
Green tea has been shown to improve acne. The thinking is that the antioxidants and phytonutrients found in this ancient beverage contribute to the improvement. Just pour yourself a few cups of tea each day. Do not add any sweetener as this natural preservative will reduce some of the nutrients in the tea ineffective.

4) Tea Tree Oil And Aloe Vera
Combine tea tree oil and aloe vera gel and apply this mixture to your clean face daily. Tea tree oil has antibacterial properties and the gel made from the aloe plant will reduce swelling and redness.

5) Vinegar And Baking Soda
Last but not least, here are two more homemade treatment options. While you are suffering from an acne breakout, use vinegar like a toner a few times a day. Acne outbreaks will quickly clear up with this. Once your face is clear, make a simple paste from baking soda and water and apply it to your face and other areas of your skin where acne occurs. Keep the paste or mask on your face for a good 15 minutes. Remove it with lots of clean water. Apply the paste every 3 or 4 days. Your acne will likely be greatly reduced because the baking soda does a good job of restoring the ph balance.
