But before we delve into the different ways to deal with acne, let’s find out more about it. 

So what is acne?
Acne is actually a skin disease that ‘appears when your hair follicles become stuffed with skin cells and oils.’ The hair follicles, otherwise known as the pores in your skin, end up filling up with bacteria, causing a buildup which then forces your immune system to jump into action, which is why most pimples become enlarged and reddish in color. Pimples also occur on the oilier portion of the skin since this is where the oil glands, also known as the sebaceous glands, end up getting clogged and infected. While the face is the most common place for pimples to appear, they also show up on the chest, neck and back since these are the oiliest areas of the body.
Of course, while clogged pores are the usual reason for pimples, they aren’t the only ones. Some other reasons for getting zits is due to hormonal changes, smoking, stress, bad hygiene, eating the wrong food, excessive alcohol intake and unfortunately, genetics. Regardless of whether you happen to suffer from chronic pimples, or maybe you only get them occasionally, here are 20 proven remedies help prevent and get rid of zits, pimples or acne below.

1. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is used for a number of cleaning solutions, and using it for treating pimples is one of them. Due to all of its antibacterial properties, this helps lessen the bacteria that causes these zits to occur in the first place. If you happen to notice a pimple forming, or if it already happens to be growing, simply take a cotton ball and put a few drops of tea tree essential oil on it. Lightly rub it on the affected area or areas and leave for at least 15 to 20 minutes. This will help soothe the area, reduce the inflammation and redness, dry it out. Be sure to wipe it off once you’re done to make sure that you don’t clog the pore further. But if you happened to have overly sensitive skin, this might not be the solution for you as it might cause even more of an outbreak.
