Homeopathic Treatment For Acne
Acne is the misery of the young and old alike and many do not escape the distressing effects. Some common homeopathic remedies include aromatherapy, herbal medications, creams, and soaps.
All of these have the common goal of eliminating bacteria on the skin and controlling the production of sebum which is a natural lubrication for the skin. Typically, sulfur-based products could help lessen the aggravation of acne.
Cold compresses can also be helpful in reducing the inflammation caused by the protactinium acnes which is the bacteria responsible for the inflammation of clogged pores.
Another great treatment is with the use of banana peels as in the video below.
