When you’re looking for acne herbal remedies, start at the grocery store! You don’t have to live near an organic market to start getting rid of your acne with natural ingredients.
There are many supplements you can use as acne herbal remedies. Zinc is the best supplement I’ve found, as it kills the bacteria acne collects, and it staves off colds and the flu. I usually buy my Zinc supplements at Target or Wal-Mart in 50 mg tablets. Don’t take more than one tablet per day, however, as you can overdose yourself, and make sure it’s taken with a full lunch.
Another great herbal remedy is eating flax seeds. These can be purchased at your local grocery store, usually in the nut aisle. You can also buy them at an organic store, but you can expect to pay more here. If you don’t like eating them plain, simply toss an 1/8 cup of flax seeds into a lettuce or spinach salad.
If you want acne herbal remedies that are topical, invest in some quality honey. You don’t necessarily have to buy the most expensive brand at the grocery store, but try not to get the stuff that’s really sweet. If you can get a hold of organic honey, this could be your best bet, but if not, the traditional honey from the grocery store will work, too.
To use honey, simply pour a little onto a plate or bowl so you can dab your finger in it multiple times without infecting the rest of the bottle. Alternately, you can use a Q-tip to apply the honey. Simply dab a small amount of honey on each zit, and sleep with it overnight. Try not to roll over if you can avoid it though, for as my experience has shown, it leaves your pillow quite sticky.
