If you have acne, you want to get rid of it as quickly as possible, but this isn’t always easy. Sometimes, it feels as though nothing you do helps to clear up your skin. You, therefore, have to be just as stubborn, and keep trying different approaches until you find an effective one.
The home remedies discussed below have done wonders for many people; hopefully, something here will work for you too.
While most acne treatments are products you apply directly to your skin, your diet can also play a major role with this condition. In particular, eating more fresh fruits and vegetables can help to improve the health of your skin (as well as your whole body).
Do you normally eat junk foods? Or foods full of sweets and carbohydrates? Making changes to the diet by eliminating foods which aren’t good for you can dramatically improve the look of your skin. If you can’t imagine eating such a healthy diet all the time, you should at least try a detox period of a few weeks and see if it helps clear up your acne.
Drink plenty of water, along with unsweetened fruit juices, lots of salads and greens and other foods containing fibre. These changes will help improve the look of your skin and help clear up acne.
Here’s another way to clear up acne naturally with tea tree oil. Tea tree oil contains a substance called “terpinen-4”. This antimicrobial substance is used to treat several skin conditions, including acne. Whenever you are using tea tree oil, caution should be taken and you should dilute the tea tree oil.
Tea tree oil needs to be diluted, that is you have to mix 95% water with 5% tea tree oil. Tea tree oil may also be combined with other skin care products you already own. There are skin care products available which already contain tea tree oil. Tea tree oil can be found at your nearest pharmacy, natural food stores, and perhaps your local vitamin store.
Some people will tell you that exposure to the sun is a good cure for acne, but this is not advice you should follow. It’s true that if you lie in the sun, your skin will redden or darken and acne pimples will be less visible, but this isn’t really a cure. Use caution when lying out in the sun because sun exposure may actually cause skin irritation and lead to even more acne.
Prolonged exposure to the sun could in fact make your skin condition much worse. If you are otherwise healthy, it’s very healthy to get some sunshine on your skin, and it feels good. Acne may be difficult to get rid of and laying out in the sunshine isn’t the cure many people claim it to be.
Finding the solution to acne problems can be very difficult but if you keep trying different things, eventually, you will find something which works. Persistence is the key to finding the acne remedy which is most effective for your skin type.
It is important to give each remedy time to work before moving onto the next home remedy. Whenever you try a new home remedy for acne, give it a full try for a minimum of two full weeks. After two weeks, then do an evaluation and see if there is any noticeable improvement.
