Acne - Natural Remedies

Acne is a skin condition that people of just about any age have to deal with. It is characterized by whiteheads, blackheads, and inflamed red pimples. The pimples are often called "zits" by the younger crowds. Acne is most often seen in facial eruptions, but it can appear on the upper back, trunk, arms and buttocks as well. In many cases, acne will have a time of eruption and then go away for awhile. But some people experience it for long periods of time. In the most severe cases, cysts can appear at the skin and can cause permanent scars.

The most natural remedy for acne is taking care of the skin. Acne is caused by the pores of the skin becoming clogged. To relieve this disruption, the skin needs to be cleansed with a soap that is formulated to not dry the skin. Shampoo your hair daily to remove the excess oil that can come in contact with skin. Do not squeeze or push at the marks since that can lead to permanent scarring. Avoid greasy creams and lotions since they can clog the pores even further. But, often acne is not so easily treated and basic skin care is not enough.

Many over the counter remedies are available for acne treatment. There are whole aisles of the drug store dedicated to it. Most of these treatments are formulated to kill the bacteria in the clogged pores, dry the skin out and cause it to peel. The idea is that this will open up fresh skin layers. But, for those with skin issues, many of these ointments and creams can irritate the skin more than it is already.

If you want a more natural remedy for acne, especially the tough cases, you need to turn to ancient methods. Many cultures around the world have been treating acne for centuries. Instead of taking the Western approach of treating the symptoms, traditional medicines look at treating the underlying causes as well as the symptoms. Care must be taken to eliminate the bacteria, reducing the inflammation and expelling the toxins clogging the pores. Tibetan culture is one of those ancient medical traditions that can help. Their herb formulas can help.

The Acne Support Combo formula is designed to relieve the symptoms as well as the root causes of acne. For more information on our Acne Support Combo, please visit us at http://www.tibetanherbs.com.
