Top 3 Home Remedies for Acne

Top 3 Home Remedies for Acne

Have you noticed that everyone you meet in your teens thinks they are an acne specialist? They will examine your face; determine what type of acne you have and recommend treatment based on their self-proclaimed expertise. While their intentions are good, taking this advice can sometimes be detrimental. You can do extra damage to your acne-prone skin by using unsafe skin treatments. Thus, it’s imperative to know some simple home remedies that can gently and safely manage your acne issues.

Acne : Causes and Home Remedies

Acne can be a result of many things such as an unhealthy diet, hormonal differences, genetics, a stressful lifestyle or skin diseases. For some individuals, correcting one or two of the above factors could work effectively and grant you clear scar-free skin. For example, adjusting to a healthy diet, eliminating oily food and changing your stressful job or even partner could work surprisingly well. However, for more effective results, you probably want to incorporate a combination of lifestyle changes and home remedies. Whilst improving your lifestyle will help reduce your acne issues in the long term, you will often need some remedies that can provide more immediate and powerful relief for your visible acne issues. The important part is knowing which ingredients are effective against acne, and which ones can be safely applied onto your acne-prone skin.

Cinnamon and Honey

You are probably familiar with the taste of these flavours, but did you know they also make for fantastic skincare ingredients? If you have acne-prone skin, applying a mask made of honey and cinnamon could help to reduce and cool off aggressive zits. Antioxidants generate effective results in reducing acne and both honey and cinnamon are rich sources of antioxidants. This will not cure your acne entirely but will surely scale down visible pimples and pain.

Green Tea Treatment

Green Tea reigns as one of the top performers for your health and wellbeing. Whether you drink it or apply it onto the skin, it is bound to improve your health in several ways, which includes aiding in your fight against acne. Applying or spraying cool Green Tea will soothe acne-prone skin by fighting bacteria and inflammation which are two leading causes of pimples.

Aloe Vera to the rescue

Aloe Vera is everyone’s go-to skincare saviour in any skin disaster. Unsurprisingly, it is suitable for combating acne as well. Salicylic acid in Aloe Vera is commonly used for acne treatments and moisturising with Aloe Vera gel will tone down acne scars and pamper your skin back to life.
