Home Remedies for Acne Treatment

Acne is a common ailment on your skin. Acne lesions can appear as whiteheads, blackheads (comedones), small pink bumps called papules, or pimples (pus-filled red lesions). More severe forms can result in firm, painful nodules and cysts and may lead to scarring.

Acne most often occurs on the face, especially on oily face. It can also develop on the shoulders, back, chest, legs, and buttocks.

Here are some home remedies and natural treatments for acne:
