Hello, Thank you for asking your query at DoctorSpring.

Acne occurs due to hormonal imbalance , stress induced . Diet wise, its better she avoids oily food, chocolates and rather has fibre rich food, green leafy vegetables, dairy products and drink lots of water. Before suggesting home remedies, I suggest the patient does a small skin test as some people are more allergic to few substances.

The home remedies include:

  1. Neem crushed can be applied on face. Neem has medicinal properties.
  2. Baking soda can be mixed with water and applied, wash face after 20 minutes.
  3. Oatmeal and yoghurt can be apllied as face mask.
  4. Turmeric with olive oil applied as mask is also helpful.

Applying twice in a week will give results in a months time.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to ask follow-up questions
