Acne is the result of backed up pores as a result of hormones, cleanliness patterns, eating habits, or sometimes even constipation. In order to get acne to go away these cycles must first be broken.
Skin must be kept clean and not allowed to get too oily, washing twice a day is generally recommended. Following the home remedies for acne listed below is a great place to start.
Eating too many sweets, greasy foods, excess carbohydrates, not drinking enough water, and chocolate are common nutritional problems that will result in acne. Hormones that are out of whack because of the turbulent teenage years, and the hormones of pregnancy are another common cause of acne.
After the underlying problem of acne has been addressed, the next step is to get the pores cleaned out and the acne will disappear. Most skin care experts will agree that a gentle cleanser is the first step, next a gentle exfoliator should be used and finally a deep treatment will pull out the impurities of the skin causing the pimple, or breakout.
Home Remedies for acne #1 – After using your gentle cleanser, take a tablespoon of finely ground oatmeal (a food processor works well) add a small amount of water to make a thick paste. Use this paste as an exfoliating scrub. Massage into the face for thirty seconds. Rinse with cool water, or allow to sit on the face for an additional ten minutes.
Home Remedies for acne #2 – For a deep purifying mask first use a gentle cleanser, then exfoliate with oatmeal. Use a tablespoon of pure bentonite clay (which can be bought online), and add water to make a thick paste.
Spread the paste on your face and allow to dry completely which will take between ten and fifteen minutes. Wash the mask off with cool water.
Home Remedies for acne #3 – After rinsing off the purifying mask fill your sink with very hot water. Drape a bath towel over your head and put your face one inch away from the water.
The steam from the water will help to further open the pores and draw out the remaining impurities. Stay under the steam tent for five to ten minutes.
Home Remedies for acne #4 – After exfoliating, applying the mask, and doing a steam treatment; take pure aloe vera gel and rub a small amount into the skin concentrating on the breakout spots.
The aloe vera gel is a great skin healer. The pure aloe gel may be applied every evening to clean skin.
By following these home remedies for acne once a week you will quickly regain beautiful clear skin. Continue on with this skin care routine even after your skin has cleared up in order to maintain your results.
