What Causes Acne and Facial Blemishes?

Facial blemishes affect nearly everyone and are often identified as scars, dark patches, freckles, blackheads, whiteheads, acne marks, and age spots.

Acne

Acne and pimples occur due to excess oil or sebum production by the sebaceous glands. When this oil is unable to reach the surface of the skin because of dead cells, excess oil, or dirt, bacteria proliferates and causes acne.

Acne can manifest as an inflamed or non-inflamed condition. Inflammatory acne is characterized by redness and breakouts of pimples, pustules, etc.. Non-inflammatory acne is present in the form of blackheads and whiteheads.

Though acne is mostly encountered during adolescence due to hormonal and biological changes, it is also seen in preteens and adults. Acne is commonly caused by:

  • excess hormones produced during adolescence
  • hormonal changes during pregnancy
  • genetics
  • medications (steroids, estrogen, etc.)
  • stress
  • oily makeup

Common Triggers for Skin Problems

 
 
 
sunburns
stress
overactive sebaceous glands
atmospheric pollution
cosmetics
allergies
hormonal changes
environmental extremes
illness
Contributing factors or conditions that lead to facial blemishes.
At home remedies offer alternatives to store-bought treatments for facial blemishes.

Home Remedies for Acne and Facial Blemishes

Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is an effective home remedy for treating acne. Be sure to test for skin sensitivity before applying it to larger areas. Use as follows:

  1. Soak cotton balls with lemon juice.
  2. Apply to affected areas of the face.
  3. Let it stay on for 15 minutes.
  4. Wash it off with warm water.

For dark circles under your eyes, mix lemon juice with fresh cream and apply regularly.

Amla

Apply amla (Indian gooseberry) with oil every morning and evening by massaging it into the face. Prepare as follows:

  1. Soak 2 teaspoons of amla powder in a glass of water (avoid using metal).
  2. In the morning, strain this water and wash the face with this every day.

Over a period of time, it will lighten the wrinkles and dark patches.

Consume raw, green, leafy vegetables and fruits to improve your complexion.

Coconut Water

Regularly consume or apply coconut water twice a day to the face to reduce blemishes.

Cucumber

Cucumber is a natural astringent and reduces the oiliness of skin. Rub cucumber juice on the face and leave it on for 5 minutes. Wash it off with water.

Mint

Grind mint leaves and apply them to the face at bedtime.

Milk

Rub warm milk on the face at bedtime. Wash your face after 30 minutes. Apply a thin layer of milk cream on the face thereafter.

Ghee (Clarified Butter)

While going to sleep, apply ghee to the face. Leave it on overnight and wash it in the morning. Ghee removes black spots and marks left by injuries.

Lemon can be applied to the face to help reduce scaring and skin inconsistencies.

Castor Oil

Mix ground gram flour (besan) with castor oil and apply it to the face. Massage it into the skin.

Almonds

  1. Soak 5 almonds overnight.
  2. Remove the skins in the morning, grind, and add them to a bottle.
  3. Add 60 grams of rose water and 15 drops of sandalwood oil. Mix well. (Use topical essential oils with caution.)
  4. Apply 3 times a day, on the face and body.
  5. On darker areas, leave it on for 30 minutes.

Turmeric

  1. Take 1/4 tsp turmeric powder and 1/4 grams black sesame powder.
  2. Mix in hot milk to make a paste.
  3. Apply to dark patches.

Aloe Vera

Use aloe vera gel or harvest gel from the leaf of the aloe plant. Apply to the affected area.

Lavender Essential Oil

Apply lavender oil on pimples with a cotton swab; dilute lavender in a carrier oil to avoid hypersensitivity.

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile is anti-inflammatory and an astringent. Apply it to the affected area for relief, or drink it as a tea as well.

Following a basic skincare regimen can improve your complexion.

      The Grapefruit Acne Spot Treatment from Citrus Clear will shrink the size and redness of acne in one day. I first bought it to treat new spots, and it worked so well I now use it everyday as my regular acne treatment. I have always had moderate acne, but I haven't had a single breakout since I started using this product. I've tried everything, including Proactive, but all of the other products were too harsh. It did dry out my skin a little, but not nearly as much as other products I've tried. I know it's only supposed to be used to treat spots, but I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good acne medication.

      Excellet hub! I have used lemon juice and splashes of cool water to help my acne all through my teenage years and even now if I start breaking out from eating too much junk food! Great job spreading the word on some excellent tips! Another great tip that my mom shared with me when I was young is to use an olive oil rub with lemongrass or lavender extracts, surprisingly enough, oil fights oil! Crazy, right?!

      There are, however, some other home remedies which will suffice as short-term measures to deal with the external problems. One of these is white vinegar. Available freely in any supermarket and a product in many kitchens, it can be used as a facial application. After washing your face with mild soap, apply the vinegar using a cotton ball and leave it to sit for ten minutes before rinsing it off. If you have sensitive skin, water it down if you have concerns. Also I found this great book that has lot more home remedies one can try out. Here is the website for that: http://killyouracne.athomebizdepot.com/killyouracn... Take a look…

      Great advice. I never had acne as a teen ager, but I do get it now as an adult. I am going to try some cucumber and coconut water. I will start with what is already in my refrigerator. Great hub!

      Aloe vera, even unprocessed from the plant itself, feels quite soothing to the skin. I always though that acne was a glandular condition that just came and went, especially in the teen years. I used to suffer from it as a teen, but not as an adult. I wish I had this list back then -- nothing seemed to work. Voting this Up and Useful.

      Rajan, I could have used this information when I was a teen. I'll pass it along to several I know. Great information as usual and well-researched.
