I've been posting a lot of individual articles about various natural home remedies for acne.  In this post I'm going to list all of the best acne home remedies all in one place.  I've had a lot of people requesting a list of all the top natural acne remedies....so, here you go!

Best Acne Home Remedies

Acne Home Remedies
  • Apple Cider Vinegar: Organic ACV toner helps control (and eliminate) the bacteria that cause acne vulgaris.  To make the toner combine 2 parts water and 1 part ACV (be sure you use organic all natural ACV with the mother).  ACV can also be taken internally to help control acne from the inside out.
  • Honey: Specifically organic Manuka honey.  Honey has natural antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that effectively treat acne.  Not only does it help control acne causing bacteria, but it also helps reduce inflammation from active acne.  It's best used in a mask form several times a week.
  • Sea Salt: Sea salt makes an excellent toner to control acne causing bacteria.  Simply mix a tablespoon of sea salt with about 1 cup of water.
  • Evening Primrose Oil: Supplements of EPO can help control hormonal acne by balancing out hormones.  If you suffer from hormonal acne, give EPO a try.  Start with 500 mg per day and do not exceed 1000 mg per day.  You should see results in a few months.
  • Tea tree oil: Another great natural remedy to help control acne causing bacteria.  Tea tree oil can be made into a toner or you can add a few drops to your face wash or face lotion.
  • Aloe Vera: Aloe is widely known for it's healing properties, which is one of the reasons it is a great acne remedy.  It helps control bacteria and reduce redness and swelling.  If you have access to a real aloe plant, use the gel from the leaves, if not, opt for an all natural organic 100% aloe gel. Aloe vera juice can also be taken internally to help improve acne breakouts.
The above mentioned remedies are some of my favorite go-to remedies for acne breakouts.  Below are some additional acne home remedies that are popular:
