Homeopathy for acne treats the person as a whole. It means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc.
Acne is a disease that affects the small holes in the skin pores connect to the oil glands under the skin. These glands make an oily substance called sebum. The pores connect to the glands by a canal called a follicle.
Inside the follicles, oil carries dead skin cells to the surface of the skin. A thin hair also grows through the follicle and out to the skin.
When the follicle of a skin gland blocked up, a pimple grows. Most pimples are found on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders. Acne is not a serious health risk but it can cause scars.

Tips for Acne
Gently wash the face with a mild cleanser according to the type of your skin, once in the morning and once in the evening, as well as after heavy exercise.
Wash your face with plain water frequently.
It is also important to shampoo the hair regularly. If you have oily hair, you may want to wash it every day.
Avoid frequent handling of the skin. Avoid rubbing and touching skin cuts. Squeezing, pinching or picking blemishes can lead to the development of scars or dark blotches.
Choose cosmetics carefully. Products such as facial scrubs, astringents and masks generally aren’t recommended because they tend to irritate skin, which can aggravate acne. Excessive washing and scrubbing also can irritate skin.
Avoid oily or greasy cosmetics, sunscreens, hair styling products or acne concealers. Use products labeled “water-based” or non-comedogenic.
Try over the counter acne lotion to dry excess oil and promote peeling. Look for products containing benzoyl peroxide, resorcinol or salicylic acid as the active ingredient.
Acne is severe or getting worse; then contact the skin specialist or dermatologist.
