Acne is a serious condition and I have five all-natural acne treatments for you to try. Over the years I have tried just about every acne cream, lotion, soap, and medication out there and while some of them worked for a while, nothing really cleared up my acne until I started trying out a few natural treatment options.
1) Diet And Hydration
I cannot stress enough how important it is to stay well hydrated. That by itself will improve your skin and your overall health. It is also a good idea to watch your diet and determine what types of foods and drinks are aggravating your acne. Just try to stay away from them as much as possible.
2) The Power Of The Sun
Another very simple but extremely effective thing to do is to stick your face in the sun once a day. Make it a point to get out in the sun several times per week. This will cause your body to make plenty of Vitamin D and it is good for your skin as well.
3) Green Tea – The Ancient Elixir
Green tea has been shown to improve acne. The thinking is that the antioxidants and phytonutrients found in this ancient beverage contribute to the improvement. Try drinking a cup in the morning and one in the afternoon. Do not add any sweetener as this natural preservative will reduce some of the nutrients in the tea ineffective.
4) Aloe Vera And Tea Tree Oil
Combine tea tree oil and aloe vera gel and apply this mixture to your clean face daily. Tea tree oil has antibacterial properties and the gel made from the aloe plant will reduce swelling and redness.
5) Vinegar And Baking Soda
These two pantry items may just be your strongest allies in the fight against acne. While you are suffering from an acne breakout, use vinegar like a toner a few times a day. It will help clear up the acne fast. After your acne breakout is healed, apply a baking soda mask to your face, neck and shoulders. To make it just mix the soda with a bit of water. Keep the paste or mask on your face for a good 15 minutes. Remove it with lots of clean water. Apply the paste every 3 or 4 days. Your acne will likely be greatly reduced because the baking soda does a good job of restoring the ph balance.
