When fighting a battle against acne, too often doctors immediately prescribe toxic drugs in an attempt to placate their patients. In addition to being toxic, some of these anti-acne drugs have been implicated in suicide attempts by users. Is this the best we can do when trying to deal with acne and other skin issues? Hand out drugs that may not just harm you but may also kill you? Thankfully it is not, as there are many inexpensive and food-based natural acne cures that may just do the trick for you, sparing you from toxic ingredients and chancy meds.

While not everything will work for everyone, chances are that you will be able to find a natural acne cure using just ingredients you may already have in your cupboard or refrigerator. Check them out:

Natural Acne Cures

  • Oatmeal
  • Honey
  • Olives
  • Olive Oil
  • Egg Whites
  • Brewer’s Yeast

I am not a health expert and I am certainly not a dermatologist. Let’s make sure no one thinks otherwise! But in doing some research online, I found that there are plenty of ways that people are reducing or eliminating their acne using only natural foods and ingredients. These ingredients are either applied directly to acne, mixed together to create pastes, diluted with water to make face washes, or turned into natural masks one can make at home to combat acne.

It’s up to you to take charge of your health and skin and determine what works best for you, but you can use these ingredients as a starting off point for tests and research. Before trying anything, I highly recommend you test your concoction on your wrist or some other inconspicuous location to test how it reacts with your skin. In addition to these natural ingredients, there are several other ways you can combat acne as well.

Other Ways to Fight Acne

  • Drink plenty of water
  • Eat more vegetables
  • Reduce daily intake of dairy
  • Use natural, organic, non-toxic face soap
  • Reduce or stop using makeup. If you must use makeup, try a natural makeup
  • Avoid sunburns and all-day sun exposure by using a safe sunscreen. I use Badger SPF 30
  • Wash your hair regularly
  • Keep your hair out of your face
  • Wash your sheets and pillowcases more often
  • Stick to a Paelo diet

However you choose to deal with your acne, I would advise doing everything you can to try to find natural acne cures before resorting to toxic prescriptions. What’s the use of working so hard to get clear, healthy skin if you are going to just pump yourself full of chemicals? Acne can be a very difficult condition to deal with, but with some research and testing you may just be able to use a natural acne cure that is safe for you and for the planet. Use prescriptions as a last resort and try out some of these cures first!

  1. I had troubled skin from about age 13 to age 25. I tried eeeeeverything, from perscription treatments to all-natural “cures” and methods. Nothing helped, although I did see a decrease in inflammation and redness when I went all-natural.

    But I was still breaking out all the time. I was never pimple-free. It’s embarrassing when you’re 13 but it’s REALLY embarrassing when you’re older. I was desperate to figure out why it was happening.

    Then one day my husband decided he didn’t want to eat anything containing high fructose corn syrup in it anymore. We’ve always been healthy eaters- we eat primarily from our own garden and we buy organic, but there were still things in our fridge containing HFCS like granola bars, katsup, salad dressing, iced tea, and BBQ sauce; Things we could, and should, be making from scratch but we had been going the easy route and just buying them at the store. And they contained HFCS.

    So we threw them out, and we never bought that stuff again. And I read the label on everything I ever bought from then on, looking for HFCS. It’s surprisingly in A LOT OF STUFF. Even stuff that says “health food” on the package! So sneaky.

    I thought I was doing this for my husband, who wanted to avoid HFCS in an attempt to eliminate any processed food from his diet because he wanted to see if he could live solely off of what we could grow/buy from local producers…but avoiding HFCS quickly became more about ME when I realized one morning that my face was clear. CLEAR!! For the first time in…..YEARS!!!!!!! I cried with happiness.

    So that’s it, guys. Avoid HFCS and cut back on sugar in general and see what happens!!
