When you set about following homemade acne treatment start with a healthy diet. If you can drink a liter of water when you wake up, itís a great way to flush out the toxins. Do not wash your face excessively instead wash three four times a day with a mild face wash. Do not pick at pimples, instead dab a few drops of lemon juice on the pimple and though it might sting a little it will restore the acid mantle. Follow with a cleansing routine and leave it be. If your skin is not completely broken out you can use oatmeal as a gentle scrub and wash thoroughly. Remember when using homemade remedies for acne, to wash well so as not to further clog the pores.

A really good homemade acne treatment is using watercress. Boil the leaves till a tea- like solution forms. Gently dab the solution all over the troubled areas every night.
