There are many natural remedies that can help improve or even cure acne. Some of these treatments have been shown to be medically proven, such as the acne diet, whilst others such as tea tree oil and zinc tablets can help improve acne on a case to case basis.  The Acne Specialist Clinic acknowledges that natural treatments may work, and endorses dietary changes in the management of acne.  Cases of hormonal acne, or severe acne may not respond to diet changes, and medical therapy maybe indicated.
