Adult acne is a challenge and not necessarily a by-product of age like it was when we were young. It's true that adult acne breaks out mainly due to hormonal reasons, but it can also be the result of extremely oily skin.
First rule of acne. Never burst it even though you think it looks better that way. How exactly to burst acne is very scientific and should not be done by someone who doesn't know how to. If the first step to bursting acne is wrong, then it will leave a post acne mark or deep scar. So, it's best not to beat it out.
Here are a few home remedies that will help you treat acne and acne scars.
Sandalwood: The fragrant sandalwood could do wonders for your skin, and your ancestors have known it well. It is no wonder then that sandalwood makes inroads in so many of our desi beauty regimes till today. Once the acne is ruptured or open, apply sandalwood on it 2-3 times a day. See the results for yourself.
Lemon: You might have an exciting date to look forward to or a big wedding in the family. So you wouldn't want to be sporting an awful acne scar now would you? So, keep applying lemon juice on the zits, every hour, through the day. Lemon is basically citric acid and will change the pH of the skin and burst acne.
Multani Mitti: Multani mitti is one the best remedies for those with oily skin. Apply multani mitti which also known as fullers earth. Use this twice a month and it will keep your zits in control by absorbing all the excess oil off your face.
Face Pack: If you have acne all over your face and mostly in the lower part, then apply a mix of lemon juice, fullers earth and sandalwood. Be careful to buy them all at a good, credible shop. Applying them once a week will keep acne at bay.
