At Home Acne Treatments

Here's some at home acne treatments that you can use in addition to the protocol followed at my clinic. (Go back to the natural acne remedies page for information on that).

These are based on Chinese home remedies. Try:

1. Washing your face with a cup of warm water mixed with about 3 drops of honey every night. Gently massage the pimples, allowing the skin to absorb the honey. Finish by washing again with clean warm water.

2. Slice open some fresh aloe vera. Massage and lightly knead the acne with the sliced aloe vera, 2 times a day.

3. Use lemon, instead of aloe vera, as above.

4. Make a drink of:

  • 3 oz. celery
  • 1 Asian pear (remove the center)
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 1 tomato

Blend these into a juicer and drink the juice. Try this once a day for two weeks.

5. Even though I recommend avoiding excess amounts of raw vegetables and fruits in your regular diet, the following foods are cooling and can cool the "heat" (inflammation) associated with acne:

  • Raw cucumbers
  • Bitter melon
  • Mushrooms
  • Daikon radish (looks like a big white carrot)
  • Winter melons
  • Tofu
  • Watermelon
  • Pears

You would ordinarily eat them in pretty small amounts if you didn't have acne. If you develop digestive problems or diarrhea from them, I suggest avoiding them in large amounts. Those symptoms could mean you've "cooled" your digestive "fire" a bit too much. Doctors of Oriental medicine understand that proper eating involves balancing warming and cooling foods.
