A Truly Amazing Acne Treatment




Like many other people, I struggle with adult acne.   I've tried many over the counter remedies, including Pro-Active, with limited success.  The ironic thing is that I didn't suffer from acne as a teenager.  My acne seemed to be triggered by pregnancy. 
Feeling frustrated by lack of results and not wanting to resort to prescription medications, I went on a mad search last year for a natural cure. 

In my research, I found that Turmeric is widely used in other parts of the world medicinally and as a beauty treatment.  Turmeric is used for acne because of its antiseptic and antibacterial properties that fight pimples and breakouts. It removes redness from acne and other types of scarring, reduces inflammation and evens out skin discolorations.


Turmeric also appears to have cancer-fighting properties as well!

I decided to apply Turmeric topically to the affected areas and take it internally.  You can purchase Turmeric for topical use in the spice section of your grocery store.  Supplements are sold for internal use, however, I found it less expensive to purchase empty gelatin capsules at my local health food store and fill them with Turmeric from the spice jar. 

1) I use turmeric found in the spice section of
my grocery store.




2) It only takes about 2 to 3 tsp each treatment





3) Add equal parts water to ground turmeric
 

4) Mix well until consistency of prepared mustard
 

5) Apply to the affected area and leave on
for at least 20 minutes.  I prefer to leave
on overnight.
Using Turmeric is simple -

I would caution you that this will stain your skin and your bedsheets yellow.  I use an old pillowcase that I can bleach on the nights I apply turmeric topically.  In the morning, the staining on my skin is easy enough to remove with hydrogen peroxide.  

For me, the turmeric worked an overnight miracle.  (Read here to see what I did to get rid of the acne scarring.) The deep cystic acne was brought to the surface, swelling virtually gone.  The hard center of the pimples were very easy to remove with little pressure.  (Yes, I know you're not supposed to pick at acne, but the center literally jumped out for me with ever so slight pressure around the pimple).   After some time, I found I could stop using turmeric topically and just continue to take supplements orally.    

I believe this treatment is probably not widely used simply because it's messy and stains whatever it comes into contact with.  However, for those who are desperate to control or cure their acne, that messiness may seem a small price to pay.   

I would encourage anyone who struggles with acne to give this natural remedy a try!

    1. My boys (16 and 14 years old) use it Judy, and although the yellow in the morning causes them to have to take a few seconds to swipe on some hydrogen peroxide, they are happy with the results. I would suggest trying it on a Friday night just in case it doesn't come off their skin easily. I would hate for them to go to school with yellow skin!

  6. Thanks for posting this! I too have struggled with adult cystic acne since I was in my early 20s. I never had children so not sure what brought mine on. I have found some success with pro-activ but still have issues from time to time. I would like to not use the pro-activ and do something much more chemical free! But as of yet I have not found something that would work. I will try this!

    Have you ever heard of a herb company www.mountainroseherbs.com They sell organic herbs and other things like bee wax, essential oils etc. Well the prices are incredible for organic herbs! You can buy in 4 oz 8 oz and 1 Lb bags. The taste is so much like home dried its wonderful. the jars at the store are what a couple ounces and you can buy 8 oz. in some cases for what they charge at the store for NON organic 2 oz. I am not associated with them in anyway other than I am a happy customer. For canning season when your going through a ton of mustard and celery seeds etc. You can buy a one LB bag organic for not much more than they want for a jar of old non organic on the shelf... Their shipping is a little high but its still a bargain when you consider the savings cost. I just ordered turmeric from them in my last order as I was about out. I have a wide mouth pint jar now. I will have to look into some gel capsules to fill!

    1. Texan,

      I really hope this works as well for you as it has for me. I only wish I would've discovered turmeric long before the scarring on my chin occurred.

      No, I hadn't heard of www.mountainroseherbs.com but I will definitely check them out asap! I've ordered bulk years ago online but I didn't feel like I was saving money due to shipping costs. So I've been just going back and forth between our health food stores and Walmart. Thank you so much for the tip!

      Also, I can't emphasize enough that turmeric stains when used topically but it can be overcome with the precautions I discussed.

      Please do let me know how this works for you!

      Warm wishes from Kansas!

  8. You know, I used to suffer from breakouts, but they've all but gone away since I stopped using soap. I know it sounds totally crazy, but now I just wash my face with warm water and the problem is pretty much solved. Maybe it's just a coincidence, I dunno, but I'm pretty thrilled with it. Of course, I don't wear makeup... not sure how this would work if you do.

    1. I'm open to the thought that you could not use anything on your face and have great skin! We create issues for ourselves with all the stuff we do. Kind of like doctors putting us on a medication to counteract the side effects from another medication, so on and so forth. My father-in-law was on 17 different meds at one point, most of them to help ease side effects from one of the other meds!

  12. Just a thought, but if you have any sort of Indian / Middle Eastern grocery stores in your area, you could probably buy tumeric in much larger quantities for what you pay for a small jar at a regular grocery store. I recently went into a local ethic grocery in my little town and found a 28oz bag of coriander for about $5. I didn't happen to need 28oz of coriander, but what a deal! LOL

      I took some time to go read your postings regarding your leaving Egypt and I must say "Wow!" I can imagine that it is hard to believe over a year has passed. Those types of experiences don't happen to most Americans. I think we (as a society) tend to take our living conditions for granted.

    1. April, I'm so glad you stopped by! I do hope you'll try it both topically and take it as a supplement. I noticed an immediate improvement using it topically but I believe taking it internally at the same time is the reason my acne is all but gone! Just remember that it will make your skin yellow (but hydrogen peroxide takes the staining right off my skin) if you leave it on overnight. I felt like the inconvenience of the staining was a small price to pay for the fantastic results!

      Do let us know how this works for you!

    1. Becky, Great idea! I have used it with buttermilk with great results, probably for the same reason!

      One other ingredient I mixed it with at one point was brewer's yeast (and buttermilk). I think the brewer's yeast acted like a clay in the consistency and seemed to help pull the pimples to a head even more quickly. I didn't use it long enough to know for sure whether it improved the results achieved.

      Thanks for your visit and your helpful tip, Becky!

    1. I would think it would be worth a try! I've used turmeric on cuts that were beginning to get infected on my fingers and just covered with a bandaid. Overnight the inflammation was gone. I really think this stuff is amazing, I believe we just don't use it much here because of the color. To me, it's worth it as long as the product you use to remove it doesn't irritate your skin. I would suggest to you that you try it in the form of supplements taken internally. I take capsules (average size) that I've filled with turmeric three times a day. I'm just concerned about your skin becoming more irritated from the process of removing the staining. But might work for you to do some overnight masks on a weekend when you don't have to go anywhere!

      Please do let me know how this works for your rosecea! The concepts are sound for this to help!

  18. I get acne on my back. I'm sitting here debating how I could sleep with this on my back without making a huge mess. Maybe just put it on for an hour before bed and take off? Any thoughts would be appreciated. It would be nice to actually be able to wear tank tops in the summer. Hehe

    1. JodiV,
      I think an hour would be really helpful! I can't caution enough that this stuff stains so if you want to be bareskinned the next day, you will want to have some hydrogen peroxide on hand to wipe of the staining.

      Also, I would stress that you take turmeric internally whether by supplements or mixing into a smoothie. I haven't had to topically apply the turmeric for some time now but I take it internally daily. It really worked both topically and internally very well for me, sort of a two punch kind of treatment!

      Let us know how this works for you! It would be great to be able to wear tanks this summer!

  20. This is on my face as I type! I've been dealing with horrible acne since I was 17 (I'm 24 now). And I've tried everything! Even proactiv and antibiotics.

  21. So I tried it out, and it does dry up your acne! But it takes a while. And the smell makes me really sick. What I've found that works faster at drying up acne is milk of magnesia. I have been using it for about 3 days in a row and it's helping so much! And I have horrible acne. Thanks again for such a great article :)

  22. I take 3 capsules ,three times a day after meals.It's a great anti- inflamatory...but you need to take it with Zinc..and Piperine(black pepper)to make it effective! I also make my own Capsules,and buy my Turmeric from an Indian Grocery. I also agree about sourcing Organic herbs and Spices from Mountainroseherbs...I was using them but they have stopped shipping Internationally;so i can no longer Order from them.Here is a Recipe for
    "Golden Milk"
    Instructions: Take 1/4 cup turmeric powder, mix with 1/2 cup pure water and simmer over medium-high heat for at least 7 minutes, stirring constantly. You will notice a thick paste form. If it get’s too dry while cooking you can add additional water. Once cooled, put into a glass jar and put in fridge. This is good for a few weeks to one month. If you are not familiar with Turmeric or where to get it, you should be able to purchase the powder from health food stores, Indian spice stores or other places online.

    Making Golden Milk

    Add 1 tsp of the turmeric paste to 1 cup. hot milk (cow, goat, soy, rice, almond, or any combination), maple syrup or honey to taste and 1/2 tsp. of almond or sesame oil. Gently heat and stir and then Enjoy!


    Great dlog Poppy!

  23. Hi! Just wanted to let you know that I have been using turmeric as a face mask with really good results. I found a recipe online using turmeric, besan (chickpea) flour, yogurt and honey - this is what I use and I think the yogurt makes it so there is no yellow staining. I just wash the mask off with water, no need for soap.

  26. I honestly have done a lot of research, and I believe that there is actually a huge relationship between the foods that I've eaten and the acne that I had for so long. After going on a plant-based diet and cutting out excess sugar, I have been acne free for a year now and I no longer have to use acne face washes either. I've also taken Probiotics to replace the good bacteria that was destroyed after being on Antibiotics for so long. I don't really think this is a myth anymore. If nothing else, it needs more research. But, I always notice that if I begin to let my guard down and resort to poor eating, I begin to have problems with acne again. acne treatment system

  37. Found your site through a link on Pinterest, Reading the stories of the other ladies on here was just like listening to my own story.
    Since my first pregnancy 13 yrs ago I have struggled on & off with acne that is so very large, sore and long lasting, leaving large red scars.
    I have spent many mornings looking in the mirror with tears knowing that I have to face the day ahead with people trying not to make it obvious.
    I too have tried Proactive, antibiotics, skin specialist, with the last Dr suggesting I was my face in straight bleach - needless to say, I did not go back.
    I am now 38 and am currently in the care of a Naturopath, with the results not terribly outstanding.
    So with a renewed hope I am going to try out your option, using the milk & honey.
    Fingers crossed, when I return, I will have a positive outcome.
    Thanks for giving me some hope...

  38. Dear Poppy,

    I usually don't comment on blogs or homepages, but I am so glad I found your great homepage and your advice, it really worked amazingly. Within only 2 weeks my more than 15 years of torture and disappointment (about any other treatment) was completely over.
    There were days when I didn't even want to leave the house, after I had a look in the mirror. There was never enough concealer to cover this mess. Not even prescribed remedies worked. And now this relief!
    I always mixed the (organic) Turmeric with yoghurt, left in on for 2-3 hours. Because of the yoghurt the texture is thicker and doesn't drip that easily and it is also supporting the treatment. Then I wash it off. First with clear water, the Turmeric and the yoghurt work like a soft peeling, after with a facial cleanser containing oily ingredients. The oil removes the yellow colour almost completely, it doesn't affect the treatment (the skin won't be oily after). Finally I use my favourite natural soap from West Africa - black soap. There won't be any visible yellow left, so I never had to bleach. (Still I use an old/dark towel to dry my face - just in case and I left out my hair line and the eyebrows, otherwise my blond hair would have been yellow)
    To the Turmeric capsules I always add some pepper (when I fill them). The contained piperine is boosting the effect of Turmeric. Even the dark circles around my eyes are gone (due to the contained iron and many other positive substances).
    Now I want to try your glycolic acid treatment, to get rid of the last traces.
    Thanks again for sharing your experiences with us.
