Spots aren't something any person would like to have to contend with. It's the plain truth. It doesn't matter how old we get--terrible skin, whether it is the occasional pimple or full blown acne--is humiliating. Acne is most definitely problematic and frequently for a lot longer than we thought it would be when we first dipped our feet into the waters of puberty as teenagers. We spend several years slathering ourselves with every chemical and acne fighter we can discover. What if you could assist your skin without being forced to take that sort of radical action? There are several natural acne remedies that work quite well. Try a few of these.

Aloe Vera is something a lot of people relate with burn relief. It's understandable as the plant is renowned for being calming and helping to draw out the heat trapped in your body after it gets burnt. Do you know that you can also use it on your acne? Aloe is loaded with polysaccharides that help quicken the skin's process of healing. It does not really discriminate between the causes of the injury. Pimple or burn, aloe vera has proven very beneficial. Break open a leaf and apply the watery gel to your impacted spots. You'll see an incredible decrease in puffiness and redness almost immediately.

You might have heard that you can reduce the puffiness of your eyes by placing cucumber slices on them. Cucumber also can serve as a natural and fantastic acne cure. It can help increase your skin's moisture and pump it full of vitamins as well. If you wish to use cucumber to cure your acne, make a mask out of them (you can find lots of recipes for this online) and apply that mask two times a week. In no time you'll see a visible improvement to your complexion and quality. This same mask also helps strengthen your skin's zit fighting properties.

Strawberries are good for dealing with pimples. Many of the acne cleansers you can buy, particularly when your acne is severe, contain salicylic acid. Strawberries are a great all-natural source of salicylic acid. Also, they are loaded with other nutrients that can help fight against acne. It's simple to treat acne by either placing cut up strawberry pieces straight onto a spot or you can come up with a mask by smashing up some strawberries and mixing them with cream. Let it sit for twenty or so minutes and then wash it off with water. Your skin is going to be really happy.

One excellent acne cure is potato juice. Potatoes are mainly water but the water that comes out of a potato when you cut it is not only water. It's water infused with the vitamins and minerals of the potato. The higher levels of sulfur, phosphorous, chlorine, potassium are all very effective in reducing acne scars. You can obtain the juice either by pressing it out of cut up pieces of potato or rubbing those cut pieces on to your skin.

Plenty of great and natural things can be used to treat acne. Why would you make it possible for acne to plague your skin and embarrass you when you have all of these other options accessible to help you clear it up?
