Inexpensive natural acne cures can help you give embarrassing acne the boot. Acne is a problem you can't hide. It can be caused by many things including stress, poor nutrition, contact with certain perfumes or other allergens, bad personal hygiene, or hormonal issues. Sometimes it seems there's no reason at all.

If you've tried all the conventional medicines and none of them are working, try a few of these natural cures for acne. It may take some trial and error to find the solution that works for you. It'll be well worth your time and effort.

Nutrients:

Any natural cure takes proper nutrition into consideration. Be sure you are getting enough of the right nutrients in your system.

Zinc is an antibacterial agent that can be taken as a supplement or by eating foods such as whole grains, sunflower seeds and shellfish.

Oxalic acid is a proven natural cure for acne. It can be found in almonds , cashews and beets.

Taking a chromium supplement once a day is said to be effective at healing skin infections. It will also prevent acne breakouts once your skin has cleared.

Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant. Vitamin A deficiency can actually cause acne breakouts.

Toxins:

Some acne is caused by a buildup of toxins in your body.

Acne is the route for toxins to exit your body when they have no other way out.

A diet high in fiber will help keep your colon healthy so that it can do a good job of eliminating toxins from your system.

Water is a natural cure for acne and just about everything else.

It flushes waste from your body and keeps all your systems lubricated. Try to drink 6-8 glasses of water a day.

Apple Cider Vinegar can be used as a natural cure for acne. Mix 1 part vinegar with 10 parts water and apply to the affected area to balance your PH level.

Things to avoid:

There are some things you may have to stay away from in order to naturally cure your acne.

Dairy allergies can cause acne flareups. Eliminate dairy from your diet for two weeks. If your acne improves you may have allergies to dairy products.

Avoid the use of heavy perfumes and makeup. These can also cause allergic reactions. They may irritate your already inflamed skin.

Keep your hair away from your skin. Hair care products and natural oils can worsen your acne. Be sure to wash your hair frequently to keep oils down.

Many natural acne cures are based on caring properly for your skin.

Wash your face gently twice daily. Do not scrub your skin as this will cause more oil to be produced as well as spreading bacteria. These things will worsen your condition.

Another thing that will worsen your problem is squeezing or popping your pimples. This causes skin damage. The infection can now enter your skin easily, causing future breakouts.
