Natural remedies for acne

Take supplements

There are also a number of supplements you may want to take, including zinc and saw palmetto (both of which are known to help reduce testosterone levels); vitamin B6; vitamin E; essential fatty acids; pantothenic acid; and selenium.

See a naturopath

However, be sure to discuss your needs with a trained naturopath. She can recommend the appropriate combination of supplements for you based on your needs and the current medications you are taking.

Tea tree oil

Another popular home remedy for acne is the use of topical tea tree oil. Although tea tree oil takes longer to be effective, many people prefer it over benzoyl peroxide because it has fewer side effects. Azelaic acid can also be used as a topical acne treatment.
