  1. Hi Pranali,

    Thanks for sharing these helpful tips and remedies on how to naturally treat acne! Just want to add another remedy that worked well for me:

    Before bedtime, on your face apply a cotton towel, soaked in water in which lemon balm (Melissa officinalis), soapwort (SaponariaOfficinalis),and black elder (Sambucusnigra) was boiled – in equal portions.

    I’ve been doing the procedure every 2nd day during the course of at least 1 week (or more if needed). Works wonders, and can happily say that my acne outbreaks are under control now!

    Thanks again for putting this extensive article together and publishing it!
