Getting rid of acne is very important. Not only because it is painful
but also because of the scars it left afterwards.Using herbal skin care
products was something that made me banish my acne instantly. The above
post too seems very appealing. Thanks for sharing.

Hi,

Thanks for sharing these helpful tips and remedies on how to naturally treat acne! Just want to add another remedy that worked well for me:

Before bedtime, on your face apply a cotton towel, soaked in water in which lemon balm (Melissa officinalis), soapwort (SaponariaOfficinalis),and black elder (Sambucusnigra) was boiled – in equal portions.

I’ve been doing the procedure every 2nd day during the course of at least 1 week (or more if needed). Works wonders, and can happily say that my acne outbreaks are under control now!

Thanks again for putting this extensive article together and publishing it!

Cheers

Nicole

acne scars at home. You need not waste money on expensive products or
prescription medications if the acne outbreak is mild. Your natural remedies are really effective to heal acne scars. Thanks for sharing.
