Struggle with Acne Part 1- Natural Products

I've been struggling with acne and black spots on my face for a while now. I've tried many different products. And some natural remedies too.

Here is a list of just some of the natural remedies I used:

1. Tumeric

Turmeric is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia, and requires temperatures between 20 and 30 °C and a considerable amount of annual rainfall to thrive. Wikipedia

2. Chandan

Chandan powder is derived from white Sandalwood and has a unique scent. Making a paste and using it on the face helps remove impurities and slough off dead skin.

3. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is a plant species of the genus Aloe. It grows wild in tropical climates around the world and is cultivated for agricultural and medicinal uses. Aloe is also used for decorative purposes and grows successfully indoors as a potted plant. Wikipedia

4. Baking Soda

Washing with baking soda does help clean your face but it doesn't help in eliminating black marks and acne scars.

So if anyone has a better idea what to use to help eliminate acne scars and black marks, please share.


  1. I peeled the Aloevera and removed the upper skin to use the gel from within.

  2. Aloe Vera has always been talked about highly as the remedy to help for clearing skin.
