A simple tomato scrub can work as a natural acne cure!

For folks struggling with acne, it might seem like chemical-laden, store-bought remedies are the only solution, but there are quite a few natural acne cures that are right in your kitchen.

From honey to mint to tomatoes (check out this DIY tomato scrub!), you can raid your fridge and pantry to cook up all sorts of simple, DIY natural acne treatments without all of the harsh chemicals in store-bought or prescription remedies. Not only are homemade acne cures healthier for your body, they can save a bundle! Between visiting the dermatologist and paying for all of those expensive medications, treating acne with conventional medicine is pretty pricey.

My pal David over at The Good Human shares a great list of natural acne cures along with some lifestyle chances that can help you beat acne naturally. Head over to The Good Human for all the deets!

  1. Here’s a nice tip from my grandma:
    Get flour and honey, and mix a little blob together, put it on the pimple and put a bandaid over it, and keep it on overnight.
    It works every time for me.

  2. I often use baking soda to help remove blackheads, it’s a good natural exfoliant for the face. And while not necessarily a “natural” remedy, baking soda-based toothpaste will also solve the problem when you leave it on overnight (it’s up to you if you use fluoride or not!)

    However, these treat acne cosmetically, and not from the ground-up. If you want to get rid of a weed, you have to pull it from the root!

    My youngest brother, age 15, figured out himself with a particular little holistic health guide we found online how to clear up his acne completely.
    He and I swear by it! Check it out here, I gave some of my thoughts about it as a total acne solution, and I had nothing but good things to say – http://www.ayurveda-natural.com/2012/05/10/acne-be-gone-holistic-system-to-cure-acne/
