Acne is one of the most common skin problems men and women encounter. It is estimated that 85 percent of people encounter acne at some point in their lives. For severe breakouts, some require prescription drugs just to stop acne from appearing. However, medication can cause unwanted side effects such as dryness, redness, and discoloration of the skin. Thankfully, using a natural acne treatment at home is possible. Specific home remedies can either help with the inflammation, kill bacteria, or prevent acne from breaking out in the future. So, let’s discuss some of these home remedies below.
Exfoliating regularly is an important task to reduce your chances of acne breaking out. By exfoliating, you remove the dead skin cells and minimize the development of clogged pores. This can be done by using a chemical peel or mechanically by using a scrub or brush.
Green Tea Cleanser
Green tea is more than just the perfect partner for afternoon tea that promotes good health. It is also good for your skin and helps keep the acne away. Green tea is rich in antioxidants and antioxidants help reduce inflammation and fight acne-causing bacteria. Whether you drink it or use it as a cleanser, you can get the benefits of green tea. Research also found out that green tea can lower blood sugar levels – a factor that is said to contribute to the development of acne. Green tea is very accessible today as a beverage. You can use the same green tea bag you use for drinking also for your skin. Simply let it cool down first before applying it to your skin with a cotton ball.
Aloe Vera Moisturizer
Aloe vera is a very popular natural moisturizer and there’s a scientific reason for that. According to research, Aloe vera contains vitamins, enzymes, minerals, sugars, lignin, saponins, salicylic acids, and amino acids. It offers moisturizing, anti-aging, and antiseptic effects. Aloe vera also contains healing and anti-inflammatory properties, which help acne.
There are a lot of acne solutions that contain salicylic acid as the key ingredient. Salicylic acid is present in aloe vera, and present in some cleansers. Try using fresh aloe vera or pure aloe vera gel to moisturize your face and skin. Both are easily accessible and sustainable. Aloe vera is easy to grow as well.
The way you live has a direct impact on your body. This sometimes leads to the development of acne. Yet, you can avoid acne treatment at home with proper prevention. Everything should be done in moderation. So, make sure you have a proper diet and drink plenty of water. Also, get at least eight hours of sleep in a day. In addition, always ask your doctor with regards to the side effects of your medication. Certain medications can lead to the development of acne. If you do have acne now, have patience and do not prick them. Pricking will only lead to wounds that would end up as scars. Using all-natural moisturizer and facial cleansers from Aromatic Global’s all-organic skin care collection will also help lead to increasing your skin’s overall health.
