Cure for acne: Know the causes and effective home remedies to fight it

Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that causes spots and pimples.

Neighbourhood Health Desk: Dealing with acne can be a pain. And the skin condition invariably has a habit of showing up when you least expect it. Here are expert-recommended ways to tackle it:

1. Coffee lovers, there’s bad news for you. Drinking excess of your favourite cuppa triggers acne.

2. Eating highly processed food triggers an insulin spike in the body and interferes with the gut flora.

3. People also get stress pimples. This is because of hormonal imbalance in the body due to stress which leads to breakout.

Tea tree oil

It works as an effective home remedy for many conditions, but especially for acne and other skin conditions. It breaks up clogged pores, clear out dead skin cells, and keeps acne from coming back.

Ice cubes

If you have spots that are especially swollen and red, ice can be a great way to reduce inflammation and reduce the appearance of blemishes.
