Holistic remedies for baby acne


A client of mine asked me for a few holistic remedies for baby acne the other day .. wanted to share with you all . Baby acne is a very common thing that happens a few weeks after the birth . Its caused by the left over hormones that the baby received by its mommy at the end of pregnancy . Baby acne is also caused by irritated skin so its important to keep your baby’s sensitive skin clean and away from any  fragrant soaps or dyes or harsh cleaning chemicals found in some laundry detergents .

Apply breast milk for 15 min then wipe off .. Repeat a few times a day …

Exposé your baby to fresh air 

1tsp of honey mixed w 1 tsp of lemon juice .. Apply mixture to affected area leave on for 1/2 hour wash  off with warm water . 

Make sure all your laundry soap you and your baby use are dye and fragrant free 

Mix 1 cup of water and 1 tsp of baking soda apply mixture to affected area the dab dry 

Don’t eat any oily foods 

Drink lots of fresh fruit juice 

No oily lotions of any kind  at all on baby’s face 

Keep face clean .. If friends come and hold baby wash face after ( it has been found laundry soap on people’s clothes can irritate baby acne ) 

It will go away on its on in time ..

Right now there is still simply no long lasting cure for acne breakouts and we can merely handle its symptoms.
