Homeopathic Treatment for Acne
Natural Remedies for Healthy Skin
Are you looking for a Homeopathic treatment for Acne?
Let's us first learn a bit how acne is formed.
Acne is caused by an overproduction of sebum, an oily substance that helps protect the skin. A build-up of sebum blocks the pores which produce the blackheads.The color of blackheads is because of their exposure to air at the skin surface.
When blocked pores get infected we see acne.
Acne is caused by many reasons, physical or emotional.
Physical Reasons for Acne
Hormonal imbalances, constipation and overburdened liver unable to detoxify the blood thoroughly. The skin is another means of detoxification so toxins that remain in the blood are eliminated through the skin.
Rarely exposure to chemicals such as iodine, bromine, chlorine and petroleum also causes acne.
Emotional Reasons for Acne
You may want to consider that the reason behind acne most of the time is not accepting oneself or better say dislike of self.
Most probably you have experienced the bitter feeling of not being liked for who you are be it by your caretakers or a partner. Don’t even try to change that because it is impossible but, you can change your own attitude towards yourself.
Right now your body is reacting to something that you have believed and you will need to get rid off it. Sometimes a shock of ending a relationship causes acne, no matter how old or young we are.
Who would respect and love me if I don’t? No body loves me more than I can love myself and believe it or not this is good news. We are not suggesting that we should become egoistic but loving our higher self and our being is the first step for loving others.
Let's put it this way:"I am the king or the queen of my own kingdom"!
If you are suffering from eruption of acne on your skin, we suggest the following treatments:
Homeopathic Remedies for Acne
-Arnica Montana CH9 or C6: If it begins in nose area, it is painful and appears on symmetric places.
-Hepar Sulfur CH15 or C12. For inflamed acne, painful, slow healing, big and deep pimples under the skin.
-Ledum C6 or CH9: for pus filled acne on the cheeks and nose.
-Pulsatilla C6 or CH9: for acne associated with hormonal changes particularly beginning of menstruation.
-Kalium bromatum C6 or CH9: for acne that is itchy, stinging not only on the face but on the chest and shoulder.
Each remedy you choose (one or more)take it twice a day, each time 5 globulines half an hour before or half an after meals.
If the single remedies we are suggesting don't suit your case you may wish to try a combined remedy which would work on different levels on your acne. These remedies fight off bacteria, cure irritated skin and balance oily skin.
We highly recommend MediAc, a combined homeopathic remedy that reduces acne including blackheads and whiteheads on the face and body.
This remedy fights off bacteria that causes pimples, reduces redness, bumps and flaky, irritated skin and speeds up new skin rejuvenation and removal of dead skin cells and encourages routine regulation of skin oils for acne prevention.

Then use oatmeal flakes mixed with some sugar and some drops of water making a paste and scrub your face. Make sure you do this in the evenings and take 5 globuli of Arnica CH9 to enhance the healing and regeneration of your skin.
