This helps not only to clean out the pores and helps to remove the dirt and bacteria which results in the acne forming. But it also helps to remove any excess oil and helps to re-balance the skin's pH, which leaves your skin looking great. This is properly one of the natural remedies that actually works really quickly in treating the condition.

Treatment 3 - Cucumber - 

Yes an ideal natural way of treating acne. You have the choice of either liquefying a cucumber, which has been peeled before applying to the acne. Or you can drink the juice four of five times a day for one week. It helps to treat the acne by purifying your blood along with improving the functioning of your lymphatic system, which in turn results in you having much clearer skin.

Treatment 4 - Extract of Grapefruit Seed - 

This is an extremely effective natural remedy for acne as it contains anti-microbial properties as well as disinfectant ones.

Treatment 5 - Tea Tree Oil - 

This has been used for many centuries now because it contains good antiseptic properties and so is perfect for helping to remove dirt and bacteria from the skin. But what strength of oil you use will depend upon how severe your acne is. Plus yes this treatment can take some time before you begin to see any results, but unlike over the counter treatments it does not cause further damage to your skin as it helps it retain moisture.
