In an attempt to clear their acne at home, people have used inventive ingredients including potatoes, vinegar and lemon juice, toothpaste, garlic, lime juice, basil, and countless others. Some people claim that certain home remedies work for them to some degree.

However, there exists no "all natural" or home remedy that can approximate the results from proven acne medications. If you want clear skin, your time will very likely be better spent researching proven options versus experimenting with what are often disappointing home remedies.
