1) Turmeric and Coconut Oil

    Turmeric powder is a very powerful antibacterial agent; the curcumin found in turmeric can assist in fighting cystic acne by breaking down the cysts. Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which when combined with curcumin creates a very strong mixture and can work together to defeat acne inside and out.

    What You Need:

    • 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder
    • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil Bowl


    Combine together the turmeric powder and coconut oil and stir well. Once the mixture becomes a smooth texture, you can apply it directly on the affected areas of concern. Leave it on for at least 10 or 15 minutes; and then afterwards rinse with cold water. You can repeat this treatment up to three times per day. Applying tea tree oil products within the times you apply this mixture is especially beneficial. 

      2) Apple Cider Vinegar

        Apple cider vinegar also known as ACV is an incredibly powerful acne remedy. ACV contains astringent, antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Apple cider vinegar helps to fight bacteria while cleansing your skin; it will also help balance your skin’s natural pH levels. A healthy, clear skin and a better balanced pH level will no doubt help your cystic breakouts and even prevent future ones.

        What You Need:
        • Cotton balls or Q-tip
        • Apple Cider Vinegar


        Before applying make sure you clean the affected area and pat it dry. Dip the cotton ball or Q-tip into the apple cider vinegar. Then gently apply the cotton ball onto the affected areas of concern. Let it dry and leave overnight. In the morning, rinse it off. Repeat these steps every night before bed until you see results.

          3) Tea Tree Oil

            This essential oil is one of the most effective and common ingredient used to treat all types of acne, including cystic acne.

                    5) Baking Soda

                      Baking soda contains antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties which in return help to reduce the inflammation and redness. Baking soda will also help clear the pores as well as fight the bacteria causing the infection, leaving you with smooth and radiant skin!

                      • Baking Soda

Apply the paste on the affected areas of concern and then leave it on for about 20 minutes. Afterwards rinse off the treatment with lukewarm water and pat skin dry. Apply moisturizer if necessary. Repeat this process up to 2 times daily.

                      You have the option to add Epsom salt as well. Epsom salt has anti-inflammatory properties which help to reduce swelling and soothe the flare ups of cystic acne.

                              • Fresh Lemons
                              • Container or bowl


                              Make sure you clean the affected areas and pat dry. Squeeze the lemon juice and place it into a small container or bowl.

                                  On a clean face, take one ice cube and place it directly onto the affected area(s). Move the ice cube in circular motions to stimulate healing and continue to keep the ice cube on the cystic acne until it melts or until you become too sensitive to the cold. You can repeat this process up to three times a day to assist with pain, swelling and inflammation.

                                    9) Steaming the Affected Area

                                      The best way to help open your pores up is to apply steam to the affected area. The steam will help to penetrate the pores for a deep, and gentle cleansing which is highly effective in fighting cystic acne since it occurs in the deeper layers of the skin.

                                      What You Need:

                                      • Bathtub with hot water or
                                      • Warm to hot water
                                      • Bowl
                                      • Clean towel


                                      The easiest and fastest way for steam is to run hot water in your bathtub for about 2 to 3 minutes. Once the room is all steamy, go inside and sit in the bathroom for up to 20 minutes.

                                      You can also add some warm to hot water to a bowl and allow your face to sit over the bowl. Cover your head and the bowl with the towel. Allow the steam flow directly to your face for approximately ten to fifteen minutes.

                                      Repeat either at least twice per day until you see results.

                                        10) Clay Mask

                                          Clay masks are considered one of the most beneficial ingredients to treat skin conditions such as cystic acne. Clay masks have absorbent, exfoliating and astringent properties; clay masks removes the excess sebum, toxins and impurities to the skin surface which makes the acne come to head fast.

                                          While there are a variety of different clay mass, find the right clay mask that fits your skin best.

                                          What You Need:

                                          • Clay Mask
                                          • Water
                                          • Honey
                                          • Tea tree oil
                                          • Wash cloth


                                          Simply combine and mix together all the ingredients to create a paste. Apply the paste on the affected area and leave on for at least 20 minutes or until it dries off completely. Once dried, wet a washcloth using warm water and then wipe off the clay mask completely using a washcloth. Apply moisturizer if needed. Repeat these steps daily for a week and twice a day from the next week.

                                          Try to avoid popping any of your cystic acne or other pimples in general. Popping can cause it to easily spread the breakout underneath the skin, not to mention will completely delay your healing time from days to weeks. That’s not even the worst part; popping your pimples can cause acne scars, and who knows when those will fade away, trust me, it ain’t pretty!

                                          If you opt to over the counter products, consider using Keeva Organics Acne Treatment, which is another great alternative to curing all types of acne; cystic acne included.With the main active ingredient tea tree oil, Keeva Organics will cure your cystic acne in no time.

                                          I love this cream. I wish it was available in a bigger jar! I wish Keeva would make a product with sunscreen in it !! I have sensitive skin and I don't break out from this cream.

                                          This is my 30 Day Challenge, I love using my 3 in 1 kit, I love the feeling of it when I put it on and my face feels smoother and better, all my life I’ve struggled with acne and nothing ever worked for me. I was hoping it would this time and it really did, I feel so much more confident with my skin in just a month!

                                          Love it!!

                                          I bought the 2 for 1 deal that’s going on right now and I’m SO glad I did! This product is amazing! Makes me feel so refreshed and clean, to the point where I don’t even want to put foundation on! Love love love it!

                                          This product is a life saver!

                                          I have been suffering from acne since my teen days. I have spent so much money over the years to find the right product on face wash, serum, cream etc etc and I finally feel like I found what works magically! This product is amazing. I have been using it for over a month. All my acne is gone and my scars are fading as well. I cant live without this product anymore. My skin looks so much better. It’s a life saver!


                                          I love Keeva!!! I found out about it while searching out things to use on adult acne. I used a product called Panoxyl to wash my face but heard tea tree oil is a great product too. I found a tea tree face wash and ordered Keeva to support it and wow!!!!! I can't believe how quickly my skin is healing, I only wish I took a before to show the after is amazing!!!! I will continue to be a customer! This product is a must have for those with dark spots, acne, and for those in the "40 n up club" (lol) with the hormonal acne leaving terrible dark spots. You will not regret your decision! Try it!
