Teen Acne (Juvenile or Acne) Natural Remedies

Acne is a skin condition that affects mostly teens; it produces noticeable pimples on the face head and neck, and sometimes the back. Secondary are the social and emotional issues as teen-acneappearance is very important during this time of life.

The cause of juvenile acne is hormonal changes from puberty, mostly in teen girls and boys. This hormonal activity causes the sweat glands to produce oil which gets inflamed or may get infected by bacterial invasions, creating breakouts called acne. There may be clear-to-white or yellow pus.  Also allergy issues may cause teen acne; look for sensitivity to dust or sanitary issues on the skin.

Medical treatments for acne include antibiotics which always have side effects and cause other problems. Anti-bacterial creams are also for symptomatic relief and do not address the cause.

Natural methods include balancing the teen’s hormones and reducing foods that cause internal heat condition which is a sign of inflammation. It is best to eliminate fried foods and dairy products. Next is to clear the heat and inflammation by using herbs and cell salts. You may also use other remedies for allergies. See Allergies Natural Remedies.

Nutrition for acne includes the dietary supplements of Chromium chromate and Zinc. They have been shown to be helpful in eliminating acne. It takes 6 to 8 weeks with the use of the following selection of remedies to see best results.

Natural Acne Rosacea Remedies

Facial skin redness, acne rosacea looks like acne in adults. Fairly common in those 40 – 50 years old, symptoms of acne rosacea include redness of nose, cheeks or both; there may be pimples on the forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. Acne rosacea also consists of long-term facial redness with the background of spider veins. The spider veins are usually on the cheeks.

Causes of acne rosacea, say the medical community, are allergic reactions or symptoms of stress. Medical treatments use antibiotics or topical gels that reduce symptoms which must be used almost indefinitely and may have severe side effects; they are also quite expensive.

From the natural viewpoint, acne rosacea is a reaction to stress, and may be a depletion of B-vitamins. Acne rosacea has been shown to include digestive disturbances involving one or more digestive organs such as the stomach, pancreas, liver, gallbladder and colon, etc.

I have seen natural solutions very successful, but it does take weeks to months to be free of this condition. Symptomatic relief can happen within a few days. Help your digestive system by avoiding spicy foods and alcohol. Also eliminate tobacco, black tea, and fast foods.

Specific Nutrition for Acne Rosacea

Supplemental B-100 capsules should be used for several months.

Topical Acne Skin Remedies

For any fungus or bacteria, dilute 1 drop Tea tree essential oil into 20 parts almond oil – use 2 times a day on the affected area.

Calendula crème is a natural antibacterial and has skin-healing properties; may also be used twice daily.

Herbs for Acne Rosacea

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Use these herbs for acne rosacea singly or in combination:

Burdock root improves gastrointestinal function as well as helping the liver and cleansing the skin.

Yellow dock is useful to improve the digestive tract and is slightly laxative and improves iron absorption.

Oregon grape root improves the liver, gallbladder and skin function.


Cell Salts to Help Acne Rosacea

To make a cell salt solution, put up to 10 tablets of each cell salt in a 16- to 24-ounce bottle; fill with water and swirl to dissolve tablets. Sip throughout the day.

You can use this combination for several weeks to months as they work to repair the body internally. Kali mur 6x may be used alone with great success.
