There are many herbal remedies for acne. Usually a combination of these herbs provides the best acne treatment. The best acne skin care is natural with an emphasis on clogged pores and hormonal balance.

Mild, or many times severe, acne is a common adolescent complaint as hormones change and contribute to this problem. Acne is embarrassing for teens and can lead to emotional problems and a feeling of being left out.

It works by reducing bacteria and decreasing inflammation. Tea tree oil is similar to the acne treatment benzoyle peroxide but has fewer side effects.
