Scientifically proven home-remedies for Acne that work!

Scientifically proven home-remedies for acne that actually work!

Acne is one of the most common skin ailments. In a survey, it was found that almost 80% of the young adult population suffers from acne. Although for most, acne disappears in their early twenties, adult acne is also seen in almost 30% of adults. Acne can be disturbing and causes loss of confidence and mental frustrations. Topical treatments using salicylic acid, niacinamide, or oral treatment using isotretinoin are effective but can cause dryness and skin irritation. At some point or other we have all tried home remedies such as toothpaste for pimples and acne, but most of the home remedies never really work. But now scientists have conducted extensive clinical trials and found the scientifically proven home-remedies for acne that work. We have done our extensive research and formed a list for you.

  • Like every antibiotic and antiseptic action, the result is seen promptly on application. 
  • Take pulp from an Alovera leaf and mix it with water in a 1:1 proportion. Apply to face and neck.

40 days of Clay/ Multani Mitti

  • The lactic acid in apple cider vinegar is mildly exfoliating and has been proved to be helpful against acne. 
  • Vinegar is quite strong, hence should be used with caution. Mix 2 drops of vinegar in half glass of filtered water and apply on the face and neck with a cotton ball. 

Honey and Cinnamon (within 24 hrs.)

Honey Cinnamon! Scientifically proven home-remedies for Acne that work!

  • Cinnamon bark contains Cinnamaldehyde as a major component. It is shown to have anti-p acne activity. 
  • And although the exact bacteriostatic component in honey has not been isolated, studies conducted in 2016, 2017, and 2022 have shown that honey and cinnamon in combination and separately, have a great effect on acne. 

Green Tea oral and 3% topical solution over 2 weeks

Green tea! Scientifically proven home-remedies for Acne that work!

  • Green tea can be rightly called the diamond amongst herbs. The plant has medicinal properties ranging from anti-carcinogenic to anti-aging. One compound called epigallocatechin (EGOG) has significant anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties. Studies have shown that consuming one cup of green tea daily for 12 weeks has effectively reduced acne. 
  • Applying cold green tea to the face with a cotton ball for 2 weeks has shown reduction and improvement in acne. 

Grapes (within 24 hrs.)

Black grapes and red wine!

  • UCLA researchers have demonstrated that resveratrol, an antioxidant found in grapes and wine inhibits bacteria and fungus from growing. 
  • Applying crushed grape juice or wine topically all over the face and neck with a cotton ball and washing it off with water after 10 minutes can kill bacteria.
  • Using it for over 10 weeks can cause a reduction in acne. 

Before using any of the above-mentioned ingredients, do conduct a patch test. Also, give an acne treatment for at least 4 weeks to work. 

Using a different product every few days can also irritate your skin, causing new breakouts. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, if a treatment works for you, you should notice some improvement in 4 to 6 weeks.
