3 Natural Ways To Get Control Over Acne


Getting rid of acne is a process that we usually associate with
expensive, time-consuming treatments and harsh chemicals. But there are easier,
cheaper ways to reduce the appearance of pimples and get control over your breakouts.
How? With simple, home-made treatments, that may not transform your skin in 3
days, but are sure to deliver long-lasting results if you are persistent. And
the greatest thing is – when you prepare your own healing potions, you know
what you put on your skin. And you know it’s not going to harm you. Today I’ll
share with you 3 of my favorite anti-acne recipes that will clear out your
skin, without “clearing” the content of your wallet.

 

Sweet, Sweet Honey

Honey is rich in powerful antioxidants, enzymes and vitamins
and possesses strong anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties – exactly what
you need to have your healthy looking skin back. You can use it as facial scrub
in the morning – it will remove the excess oil, without over drying your skin (actually,
honey is a wonderful moisturizer!) and will disinfect the skin’s surface. Another
way of using it is as leave-on mask, mixed with a few drops of Tea tree oil – double
the anti-inflammatory power, even better results! Always buy raw, unpasteurized
honey – it’s a guarantee that all of its incredible properties are well
preserved.

Natural Acids

Be it apple cider vinegar, lemon or tomato juice, all can be
of great help, especially when it comes to dealing with post-acne spots. Nevertheless,
here I’d like to mention something very important – since the above mentioned are
highly acidic they can alter the normal pH of your skin (and this is not a good
thing!). This is why they have to be used in moderation and always diluted! Different
skins tolerate acids in a different way, so you’d better start with more
diluted solutions. For example if you use lemon juice try at first 1 part
lemon, 4 parts water. Apply it as a toner, if you have more spots and as spot
treatment if you have just a few. If your skin doesn’t react with
redness/irritation, after 3-4 application, you can move to 1 part lemon 3 parts
water. Natural acids mildly exfoliate the outer layer of epidermal cell,
smoothing out the skin’s surface, evening the skin tone and stimulating cell turnover. Slowly, but surely this
will banish the annoying marks and allow your skin to reveal its natural beauty
and radiance.

 

 

Oil Cleansing

I know that when acne sufferers hear “oil” they freak out. Since
acne skin is often oily, the idea of adding more oils to the already “greasy
situation” sounds unacceptable. Truth be
told, oils can actually do wonders for your skin – if you pick the right ones
and if you use them properly. We’ll discuss how to choose the right oil in
another post, but 
Tamanu Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Jojoba OilHempseed OilRosehip Oil and Castor Oil are suitable for acne-prone skin and I promise, if you try them and you have patience to let them work their magic, you’ll love the results. You can read more about the Oil Cleansing method

Last but not least, let’s not forget that getting rid of acne is also a matter of
changing your 
diet, your habits and reconsiders what kind of skincare product
you are useing. Regular skincare is often full of chemicals that not only
harm your health but also 
worsen your acne immensely. It’s worth thinking about
switching to Organic Skincare because it is:

  • Free from comedogenic substances and toxic chemicals
  • Gentle to your skin (and at the same time, incredibly effective!)
  • Doesn’t aim at providing instant results, but rather than healing
    your skin and helping it regenerate and regain its balance

Making the right choices always pays off. Acne is not a verdict. It’s manageable and if you change your approach to the problem you’ll see it go away. Love your skin and take good care of it. It will show on your face.
