Having acne can be one of the most embarrassing and difficult things to deal with. When you feel that someone is looking at your acne instead of you, it can completely diminish your self-image. These days, with people being as busy as ever, finding the easiest home remedies for acne is critical. Here are some of the simplest methods to reduce pimples, decrease inflammation, and help make skin look fresh again.
First, the most basic long term approach to a healthy face is to examine your personal habits. A healthier diet and regular exercise is always the foundation toward a healthier and fresher face. This gives your body the appropriate weapons to battle excess oil and dirt in your skin. See how you can reduce any fast and greasy food as well as large quantities of acidic drinks from your diet. Not only will your face begin to improve, but your overall health will take a major turn for the best.
Second, let’s assume you are correcting your habits already and need the next punch to eliminate those stubborn acne bumps. A great acne scrub and/or mask can be made from natural and organic honey. Honey has incredible properties for curing acne such as anti-bacteria and oil reduction. Plus the natural stickiness of honey increases the effectiveness of dirt removal from clogged pores. Why use raw and organic honey? The answer is that processing honey removes most of the healthy antibacterial agents and also adds unfavorable chemicals which will actually worsen your acne.
Third, is to try a somewhat lesser known remedy for acne which is virgin coconut oil. This can work as both and inside and outside fighter against acne. Consuming coconut oil has shown to reduce excess oil production in the skin because it is a natural detoxifying agent. It can also be used as a toner to apply directly on your face. The toner will help eliminate dead skin cells and naturally moisturize the face with healthy fatty acids. Understand one thing though, using coconut oil for acne will usually begin with negative side effects as your body adjusts to the new oil. Do not be discouraged by this and continue using coconut oil to see full results.
Lastly, consider the wonderful refreshing benefits of pure aloe vera for acne reduction. With it’s antibacterial and scar reducing properties, it has proven to work wonders. It is a natural anti-inflammatory agent also while even encouraging new cell growth. Newer cells always look healthier and fresher. Aloe vera must be natural (either directly from the plant or with as little processing as possible) to achieve any results using it. However, aloe vera has shown fantastic results when combined with other acne treatment options to emphasize the positive “glow” of healthy and radiant skin.
