Acne is something that invades our skin, but something most of us cannot control. Acne comes at different stages throughout our lives, but usually around those important teenage years, when kids are at their most vulnerable stage. Acne is usually portrayed as a sign that you have hit puberty, but it should not be something you are embarrassed about. I have rounded up a good list to help those in need of some natural remedies that ACTUALLY WORK! I will also include the best moisturizer for acne and how and when to apply it.
- Green Tea
- Witch Hazel
Honey is a natural antibiotic substance that has quality properties included, and can help benefit your body in more ways than just relieving acne. The best way to use honey for acne purposes is to create a facemask. You can do this by added a couple tsps. of honey to 1 cup of plain oatmeal. Apply directly to the affected areas and leave on your skin for up to 30 minutes. Then use warm water to remove the mask.
Chamomile Tea is an anti-inflammatory substance that will help contract any inflammation in your body caused by acne. To apply this formula, I would make a strong chamomile tea like you would to drink- wait for it to cool, and then apply it to the affected areas of your skin.
Green Tea has many antioxidants that help treat acne problems. You can get some benefits by consuming green tea daily, or you can also apply the steeped tea bag directly to the area in need.
Mint is a natural remedy that helps calm irritated skin. You will be creating a natural cleanser by mixing water and mint leaves together; this will help exfoliate the dead skin.
Aloe- I am sure did not catch you by surprise. If you have ever burned your skin at any time, whether you were on vacation or not- aloe is something most people turn to for help. Therefore Aloe has many positive benefits for healing your skin. Aloe also fights infections and reduces scarring that could be caused by acne. The best way to use Aloe for acne is to buy a plant and take the liquid directly from the plant and apply it on your face. If you do not want to buy the plant, you can buy Aloe moisturizer, which is my FAVORITE NATURAL REMEDY in the book.
Witch Hazel is not as scary as it sounds. It’s actually amazing, and one of the best facial cleansers you could possibly use. Witch Hazel is safe to use directly on your skin. There is no need to dilute it with water. Witch Hazel is powerful because of its astringent and antioxidant assistance. Not only does the astringent and antioxidant benefits help heal damaged skin, it also prevents cellulite and helps keep your skin looking young and fresh. It’s important to recognize all the natural ingredients in Witch Hazel. Don’t put toxic chemicals on your skin, when you can use natural and safe solutions.
