8 Natural Remedies for Acne


Written by Andrea Manitsas  When I turned a quarter-century old, I figured acne would be a distant adolescent memory. I was sorely mistaken. Those pimples pop up inexplicably to taunt me in all manner of moments. Thankfully - as teens and adults alike - we can arm ourselves with some homemade remedies to tame the flare ups. If you're like us, you'll find that natural cures work even better than all the nasty chemical stuff commercially available- which can do more harm than good. The first thing to do when fighting acne is to take a good hard look at your lifestyle and how you can better stave off breakouts. Eating whole, unprocessed foods, sleeping enough, staying well hydrated, coping with stress (yoga and meditation maybe...) and washing your hands frequently are all habits to get into for radiant, blemish-free skin.  But, most of us can't lead perfectly-balanced, healthy lifestyles all the time.

The Surprising Health Benefits of Papaya SeedsWhile most people throw them away, papaya seeds and not only edible, small amounts of them in your diet can be surprisingly good for you.  Keep in mind though that chewing half a teaspoon of the seeds is not like eating papaya fruit. They have a strong flavor, more like a cross between mustard and black peppercorns. If you can handle that, ahead are some of the main health benefits of papaya seeds, followed by some interesting ways to add them to your diet. Papaya Seeds, Worms and Other Parasitic InfectionsLike green papaya, the seeds contain high levels of proteolytic enzymes like papain which can help rid your body of parasites.

What is your acne telling you?

I always knew that the once-monthly spots that overtook my chin were the result of not-so-stable hormones. However, when my dermatologist took one look at the sudden outcrop of angry zits on my nose and asked me to get my blood pressure checked, it introduced me to a whole new (actually old) science of face mapping, which is pretty much the key to unlocking the mysteries behind problem skin.
