What is Acne?

Acne is a skin condition in which red, inflamed pimples and non-inflamed pimples appear on the skin. Hormones cause the oil glands of the skin to enlarge and produce clogging of the gland and the hair follicle to which it is attached. These pimples usually appear on the face, but are sometimes also found on the chest and neck. In most cases, acne goes away without leaving any scars.

Spotted skin, scars and acne marks make you feel embarrassed and hurt self-esteem as well. Many of us opt for cosmetics and other products to get rid of acne residues. There are many home remedies which have proven their effects on lightening these skin marks. Tomato and Lemon Juice: Take a fresh tomato and make its paste. Mix it well with one tablespoon of lemon juice. Apply the paste on face for around 20 minutes and rinse it off gently with water after 20 minutes. Pulp of Aloe Vera: Let the pulp from Aloe Vera dry for 5 minutes in sun. Add 6-8 drops of lemon juice to it and apply on the affected area and face for 15 minutes. Onions: Cut the onion into small pieces. Grind those pieces and separate the juice from the residue. Apply the juice for few minutes on the affected skin and rinse after 10 minutes. Cucumber and Milk: Make a paste out of cucumber, milk and a bit of lime extract. It will serve as a face mask. Apply thoroughly and wash it with warm water after 10 minutes. You must consider a visit to dermatologist in severity of the condition. But, these home remedies are proven effective in getting rid of acne marks, black spots, pimples and dark spots.

In order for you to get rid of acne forever, 1. You must learn what the cause of your acne is and how to control it. 2. The right and effective acne treatment means a treatment not only remove acne from the face but it also stops it from coming again. This programme covers both these methods perfectly. I had tried a lot of methods to rid myself of my crippling acne. This program worked. My acne had cleared up and very quickly, I might add. My skin is now remarkably clear. Not a day goes by where I don't thank the lord that I found this powerful solution. It really works.
