Q. I am 34 and have been dealing with acne since my teens. I tried everything to alleviate the problem, but nothing worked.
I finally found a remedy that has helped dramatically–salt water. I mix 2 teaspoons of sea salt into 8 ounces of filtered water and apply it to my face three times a day with a cotton ball. I hope some of your readers can also benefit.
A. Thanks for the suggestion. We have found no scientific studies for this approach to fighting blemishes, but it fits our criteria for a reasonable home remedy: might help, shouldn’t hurt and doesn’t cost much.
