Home Remedies for Acne / Breakouts

I have tried some of these remedies in the past and they actually worked.

Tea Tree Oil- This is obtained from the Melaleuca alternifoliais tree from Australia. It contains bacteria-fighting substances called Terpenes, which either kill the bacteria or weaken them .

Aloe Vera- I bought a plant and used it fresh everyday. The enzyme-rich gel has very soothing anti-flamatory and anti-bacterial properties. You can also drink aloe veera, which will clean up and detox the digestive tract.

Zinc- you can get these in capsules from any drug store, It helps strengthen the immune system and repair your skin.

Vitamin A- It is said that vitamin a will help reduce the oils in your skin, helping your skin from
breaking out.

Water- Drink A LOT of water.
