But they do the job, every day we consume chemicals in one form or another.
Tea tree oil is apparently good for acne, but as someone who tried both natural and prescribed acne treatments throughout my teen years, I have found nothing that works better than the prescribed medications.
Although if you are interested in giving it a try than you can find some natural tea tree remedies commonly in shops.

There are treatments, creams,etc.,for Acne; but by far the best treatment is nutrition.You have to remember that the skin is the largest organ in your body; and you have to treat it with respect.
It is an old adage, and a true one, that "we are what we eat".
The first thing is to eat nothing with a "preservative" in it. Only fresh food. Plenty of Brassica (lightly cooked), Fruit, root vegetables,Nuts (not peanuts!). Garlic, if you can eat a little raw,all the better.
Too much sugar is deadly to the skin; salt is okay.Don't be afraid of meat; it is the fastest source of protein. Avoid Margerine like the plague! Butter is good for you!
Get as much information as you can on nutrition. And most of all, water! Drink it. And when you wash with it, avoid all "scented" soaps.
Use a cream by all means as a quick relief. But treating Acne from the inside is the cure!
Thank you but me and my family already do that and have been for a while, my mom even makes fermented foods.
And soda that is good for you!
I was just wondering if there was a way to get rid of that occasional zit.
There is no such thing as soda that is good for you, anything with preservatives and an array of chemicals is not good for you in the slightest. Our bodies are of the Earth and should be fed and watered with things of the Earth, not man made substances.
Brysing gives the best advice, of course hormones play a part, but the average teenagers diet is shockingly bad. I found that swapping all drinks for either water or tea barring when I go out with friends once or twice a week, made my skin a lot better. It gave good hydration to the cells, and I not only looked better but felt better mentally too.
As for natural methods, tea tree oil is one of the best things for your skin so long as you dilute it, some like to dab it on to a spot with a cue tip only touching that area. This is good, but not everyday as it can make your skin dry. Another method would be to dilute some in a basin of water to wash your face.
After washing your face you could apply witchhazel astringent to the skin using cotton wool, this will balance the oiliness of the skin and close the pores preventing further breakouts.
Sugar is bad for the skin, as are bad fats (saturated). But something most people overlook is dairy, most people's body simply doesn't handle dairy very well and dairy can cause skin issues. I am not the only one who gets breakouts when I consume dairy, and I have noticed it also irritates my eczema, even just a couple of spoonfuls of yoghurt.
Honestly, it's all abut knowing what is good for your body and yourself, and the only way you will know that is through applying basic nutritional information and trial and error.
Hey.I used to have acne problem and out of experience I can tell you tht there is no "good for anyone" solution..be it a thing bought from pharmacy or some home made treatment,or even a spell.
That happens because we have different skin types with different reactions to some ingredients and with different acne causes.
I went to a specialist and he prescribed me a treatment.It was awesome..mu skin was clear..until I stopped the treatment and then it started again.
I turned 18 and most of them black heads were gone so keep in mind that hormones can be the cause.
Now I just use a peel-off avon mask daily and it does the trick. It does not destroy them..but diminuates the red around them and makes your skin smooth so overall it makes the skin look really nice. You may give it a try.
If you want to keep them under control,just see a dermatologist. They are specialisedin finding the best cure for your own skin type.
