Cystic Acne: Natural Tips And Home Recipes

Hello visitor! Thank you for taking the time to read this article.

Severe cystic acne is the most destructive and serious form of acne. The large, disfiguring cysts across the face, chest and back leave such noticeable scars that equally damage self-esteem and skin surface.

Treatment for cystic acne can be challenging since it does not respond to over-the-counter medications or most prescription oral and topical medications.

The only medication that safely and effectively controls destructive cystic acne is isotretinoin. It has so many side effects, you must really be on the edge to take it. Women need to prevent pregnancy during isotretinoin (accutane) therapy since isotretinoin has been known to cause severe birth defects. Isotretinoin also has psychological side effects, such as depression, and in rare cases, suicide.

So what can you do to avoid such dramatic side effects? Before you try any prescription medication, try a home remedy. Poultice is a thick puree made of natural ingredients which are applied it to the cyst. You can soak a gauze pad with the poultice and secure it in place with a Band-Aid. It's best done after the shower.

Here are a few poultice combinations that are useful to alleviate inflammation and relieve pain.

o Ginger and milk (nourishing, anti-inflammatory)
o Honey and cinnamon (healing, clarifying, can be left overnight)
o Ground orange peel and water (clarifying)
o Salt and vinegar (de-puffing)
o Turmeric and vinegar (bleaching, exfoliating)
o Lemon juice and cinnamon (bleaching)
o Ground sesame seeds and water (anti-inflammatory)
o Ground almond and goat milk (nourishing, healing)

Here are some more home treatments to target cystic acne and related problems like swelling or redness.

o Rub fresh garlic on the cyst every couple of hours to reduce redness and swelling
o Use the juice of a fresh, raw papaya to relieve swelling
o Rub fresh mint juice over acne cyst to relieve pain

Never forget, the key to effective acne treatment is prevention. As long as you have acne-prone skin, you have to keep taking good care of it. If you don't, the acne will overcome your life and make you feel and look quite miserable.
