Are you sick and tired of using expensive acne products that are harsh on the skin? Most products in the market contain harsh chemicals that sometimes worsen our acne condition instead of healing it. I had spent thousands of dollars on acne products but I end up relying on natural acne treatments. Continue reading and I will share with you some of the natural acne treatments that work.
1) Tea Tree Oil
If you do not have a bottle of tea tree oil at home, go to the pharmacy and get one now. Tea tree oil is a great natural ingredient that we can use to help cure our acne. It has antibacterial properties that can help kill the bacteria that cause acne. It can also reduce the inflammation that causes swelling and redness.
2) Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is considered as a miracle ingredient. It can help to smooth out acne scars and accelerate the healing process of the skin. It also has anti explosion properties that can help reduce inflammation and swelling of acne. You can either apply the pulp of the aloe vera on your acne or use products that contain aloe vera.
However, make sure that the first ingredient listed in the product is aloe vera instead of water. Some products contain minimal amount of aloe vera and those products are usually not effective.
3) Natural Food Diet
You can use spot treatment by applying aloe vera or tea tree oil on your acne. However, to prevent acne from breaking out again, you need to make some changes to your diet. I had picked up an eBook Acne No More written by Mike Walden. I used his 5 unique holistic steps to help me cure my acne in just 4 weeks time.
One of the steps is to eat a natural food diet. Most of us are eating too many junk foods that contain fats, sugar and chemicals. These foods can cause our body to suffer from hormonal imbalance, hyperactive sebum glands (oily skin) and high skin turnover rate (clogged pores).
Once you start to reduce your intake of these foods and eat more foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, complex grains and seeds, you will see a great improvement to your skin condition. We are meant to eat these foods instead of flour and candies. These foods make up our natural diet and they contain essential nutrients that will keep our body healthy and keep acne away forever.
