A note about Garlic for Acne Treatment

Herbs are God and nature's gifts to us. While the use of herbs and herb remedies has brought excellent results for many people, do note that their health benefits may be limited when they are used in isolation. However, when combined with some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition, the impact on one's health will be greatly magnified.

In natural health and healing, we believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases. We also believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man’s understanding. It is thus a good idea to apply these fundamental health steps no matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem.

Garlic Acne Treatment

The garlic acne treatment is said to be one of the most popular benefits of garlic.

Basically, garlic juice in extremely tiny quantities or after diluting in water is used at the rate of one little drop over a pimple or acne-infected area.

In the following lines, an alternative way of using garlic for acne treatment is described.

* Fry garlic in a pan on a low flame, till it turns a little brown.
* Be careful while frying garlic, since it has the tendency to split when heated and fly all over the place.
* After the garlic cools, eat one garlic clove; it is believed that this will help in the blood purification process and flush out toxins.
* This, too, helps clear pimples and works as an effective acne treatment.

In either method, remember to peal off the outer skin or covering of garlic cloves before frying or extracting the juice.

This should be tried for a day or two and observed for any symptoms of skin rashes or acid reflux. As garlic is extremely pungent and strong and if one is not used to garlic, there could be reactions. If that happens, garlic application and / or consumption should be stopped or reduced and built up again gradually.

Besides the garlic and acne connection described above, there are other effective herbal remedies for acne. Read about them.
