All natural apple cider vinegar is a great way to get rid of acne. I am sure you heard of apple cider vinegar but you could be mistaken.

Tea tree oil is another great method of curing acne and has been proven safe for over sixty years.

The best quality of tea tree oil comes from this area only, all other oils are mediocre. So when choosing tea tree oil for your acne, please make sure it comes from this area. Terpenes is a bacteria-fighting substance found in tea tree oil and acne is caused by bacteria, so when you mix these two together you got a great cure for acne. The Terpenes weaken or destroy the bacteria by shielding antibodies. To use tea tree oil it is best to apply a drop or two of pure, undiluted tea tree oil to affected acne areas of the skin.
