Experts believe that acne is related to the production of androgens in the body, which in turn makes the oil glands in the body become more active thus secreting excess oil. Much of this oil is produced around the face which explains the reason why acne can be found mostly on the face, although in other cases they also occur in the other parts of the body like the chest, neck, and buttocks. Fortunately there are acne remedies that can help.
Another factor for acne development has something to do with genetics. It means that this condition is something that is hereditary in nature. In other words, children whose parents have experienced having acne blemishes is most likely to have the same skin condition when they grow up.
Whatever the causes of acne are, they are less important than knowing how to cure it. It is not surprising to find the huge number of over-the-counter anti-acne products sold in pharmacies considering how universal this skin disorder is. Acne after all is a condition shared by many individuals regardless of race and social status. However, most acne products sold in the market are expensive, especially those brands endorsed by famous celebrities. The good thing is that there are natural ways in treating your acne problems.
Home remedies for Acne
1. Garlic and Ginger. Garlic is known since olden times to have many curative properties. It can also be used to treat acne. Just apply the crushed garlic onto the affected area. Ginger on the other hand can be added in your tea. If the taste is too strong for you, then you can add a little bit of honey.
