Acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States. Somewhere between 40 and 50 million Americans suffer from acne and nearly 85 percent of Americans have acne at some point during their lives. Most occurs on the face, chest, and back. Many people are self conscious about their acne because it appears in such prominent places. If you suffer from acne and don’t want to use chemical solutions, home remedies can be a great option. A baking soda exfoliant reduces breakouts and inflammation and you can clear up acne and balance the skin’s pH with apple cider vinegar. Coconut oil and tea tree oil combat acne with antibacterial properties. Also, you can use honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg as an acne spot treatment.
