Acne is an embarrassing problem for adolescents and adults alike. Find comfort in the fact that you are not alone on this journey and there are many others who are in the same boat as you. Why does acne form? As the body experiences hormonal imbalance, the sebaceous glands secrete too much sebum (oil) causing the excess oil to become clogged in the pores with acne-causing bacteria and dead skin cells. There are several ways to treat acne naturally rather than using medicinal treatments, antibiotics, and other expensive procedures.

One of the obvious benefits of natural treatments is that it does not contain harsh chemicals that cause skin irritation, inflammation, redness, dryness, or skin damage. If you are wondering how to use natural products to treat acne, read ahead:

Natural Treatments for Acne

Yogurt Face Mask: Natural, organic, plain yogurt has both antibacterial and antifungal properties. It cleanses the skin and unclogs pores. At night, apply some yogurt to your freshly cleansed face and let it sit for 10 minutes then rinse it off with warm water. Follow with an oil-free moisturizer to retain needed moisture. Acne will start to subside in a short time.

Honey Mask: Honey has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties and works effectively on treating acne. It will unclog your pores while killing acne-causing bacteria. It is great for sensitive skin as well. Apply a honey mask at least once a week – It can really work wonders.

Olive oil: Extra virgin olive oil absorbs well into the skin and prevents acne without clogging your pores or causing you to breakout. It allows the skin to become hydrated and leaves your skin feeling so smooth. At night, cleanse your face and instead of using a moisturizer, apply a small drop of olive oil to your face and neck. A little goes a long way so don’t overuse! Your skin may feel greasy at first but don’t worry, it will feel and look amazing in the morning!

Selenium: Selenium is found in nuts, seafood, whole grains, and mushrooms. If you add these types of foods to your diet, selenium will work effectively to prevent and treat acne. For best results, selenium must be combined with Vitamin E ( a powerful antioxidant that prevents scarring).

Lemon Treatment: Organic lemon juice works both internally and externally to clear away acne blemishes. It cleanses the liver and eliminates toxins in the blood. On the outside, it acts as an Alpha Hydroxyl acid, sloughing away dead skin cells and cleanses the pores of acne. Regular application will give you brighter and more radiant skin just in few days.

Drink plenty of water: Water is vital for proper body function and helps flush away toxins from the body. It will keep your body and skin hydrated – Good hydration is a must for treating and preventing acne breakouts.

Natural acne treatments can really help you to get rid of your acne. Before you think of using acne medications, try these effective natural remedies first. Natural treatments can make your skin clean and clear since natural cures are gentle on the skin, harmless to the environment, and fairly inexpensive.
