Re: Home Remedies for Acne?

You're better off buying a benzoyl peroxide cream/acne wash OTC and going from there. Home remedies (with the exception of asprin) tend to clog pores, over-dry, and exasperate the situation. Acne washes/masks are cheap enough anyway...

Re: Home Remedies for Acne?

I used to crush a few white asprin (not coated ones like Advil) and mix with water until it was a paste. Then I'd spread it over problematic areas.

Re: Home Remedies for Acne?

This works alright, i guess. Don't expect a miracle, but with acne, anything you can do that helps is worth trying.

Re: Home Remedies for Acne?

Salt water does seem to help. I use sea salts.

Has anyone used oatmeal? I read that grinding up oatmeal until it is a fine powder than adding water to make a paste helps soothe and soften skin while drawing out impurities. Aveeno body lotions work well and that has oatmeal. Any thoughts?

Re: Home Remedies for Acne?

aspirin probably works because it is an anti-inflammatory.

salt works because it's poor growth media for microbes.

Has anyone doen the home niacinamide-in-aloe remedy?

go to the GNC and pick up niacinamide, and mix 1 gram per every one ounce of gel (about 3.9%).

I bet a little aspirin in this mix would be pretty cool. what do you think?
