acne outbreak. Looking in the mirror made me scream. I didn't want to try all advertised acne creams and went to a dermatologist straight away. I asked her to prescribe me a strong acne medicine with a high concentration of benzoyl peroxide, something that would surely work.
To my surprise, the doctor said, no, no strong
medication yet, let's try something else. She gave me several recopies
for acne home remedies. I was disappointed, but since the doctor said it
should work I tried her homemade remedies. At first I didn't want to
believe it, but my skin looked better and better every day. After about
two weeks there was no trace of acne. Here are the remedies that helped
me, hope that they will work for you as well.
1. Mix of rosewater and lemon
is an excellent cleanser for acne affected skin. You can mix fresh

supplies it with vitamins. Use cucumber mask twice a week and you will
see definite improvements to your skin condition.
Acne diet is important for any acne treatment
there is no such thing as a special "acne diet"; however, what you eat
is greatly important for the condition of your skin. Previously, to cure
acne doctors suggested cutting down only oily and sugary foods. Modern
research shows that eating pizza and drinking soda, doesn't cause acne.
What is really essential for acne diet is to consume enough vitamins and
minerals. Vitamins that are known to help with acne are Vitamin A,
Vitamin E and most B group vitamins. So balanced diet is required to
