    There are a variety of natural ways to treat acne:

    Taking vitamin B5 which helps produce “Coenzyme A” which the body break down skin oil.  (Other vitamins include: A, C, D and E).

    Green Tea is another natural remedy.  Green tea extract contains strong antioxidants and has proven to be anti-bacterial (including Bacterium acne.)

    As far as the old-wives-tale regarding junk food, it seems to be spot-on.  Avoid sugar, refined carbohydrates, chemical additives, fried foods, fatty foods and processed fats.  Avoid caffeine, alcohol and smoking.  Do make sure to drink plenty of water, eat plenty of fresh fruit and veg and get lots of dietary fiber.

    Among other natural remedies: Tea Tree Oil, Olive Leaf Extract, Licorice Root Extract, Aloe Vera Extract,

    Rose water is a great toner. It is gentle, hence it does not over-dry the skin and does not lead to excess oil production. Jojoba oil is a great moisturizer. 
    One good idea for a toner is mixing 2/3 green tea and 1/3 apple cider vinegar. Apply the mixture to the face at night after washing your face. Green tea is supposed to have an anti-inflammatory effect. Apple cider vinegar is a famous natural remedy for nearly every planet – it is especially good for stabilizing blood sugar, the disequilibrium of which may lead to eruptions on the skin.

    Acne can also be a hormonal issue, especially in women. Vitex (chaste tree berry) and burdock are known as remedies for hormonal instabilities, which may lead to clearing up of the skin.
