Two Naturopathic Acne Remedies
Everyone deals with acne at some point in their lives, typically beginning during adolescence, when hormones flood the system in preparation for adulthood. What we can visually see (and also feel, sometimes) is a result of hair follicles becoming clogged with oil and dead skin. Hair follicles are connected to oil glands which secrete an oily substance to lubricate the hair and skin. When the pores in the skin become plugged by this oil, the follicle walls begin to bulge, which often produces what is commonly known as a whitehead.

Even if you have found a successful medical treatment for your acne, you might also find any of the following could also benefit you.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
You may have already heard about some of the benefits of drinking [a little bit of] apple cider vinegar every day. Vinegar is an acid and when you drink it, your body becomes more alkaline, by nature. Many infectious organisms cannot survive in that environment. Thus, when you apply unfiltered apple cider vinegar to your skin it may balance the pH and kill bacteria; but ACV is also an astringent and that means it helps to dry up excess oil. That helps to keep your pores clear, too.
A good ACV topical astringent typically uses 1 part ACV to 3 parts water, which you can apply with a cotton ball, much like you would with Witch Hazel. Leave it on for at least 10 minutes—or even overnight—and wash your face when you remove it. You can do this several times a day if you like.
Sure, when you eat egg whites you might enjoy a breakfast with lower cholesterol, but if you apply egg whites to your face you might be able to take better advantage of some of their topical benefits. Eggs are actually filled with protein and nutrients that are very good for the skin. They can also help to soak up that excess oil that astringents normally handle.
To apply egg whites just rinse your face and use egg whites (whisked to froth, like a meringue) and just massage into your face. Apply several times, waiting for each layer to dry and then wait at least 20 minutes after applying the final layer before rinsing the mask off completely.
