The Pocket Guide To Naturally Getting Rid Of Acne

The Pocket Guide To Naturally Getting Rid Of Acne

Organic produce, composting, environmentally sustainable cleansers – let’s face it, going organic feels good and is more and more an adopted way of life.Unfortunately, if you have acne, you may find out that most of the treatment solutions out there involve the use of chemicals, sometimes even quite harmful. But worry not! You don’t have to compromise your healthy lifestyle to achieve an acne-free complexion. Implementing certain natural solutions into your daily life may be easier than you think!

Most topical acne solutions involve harsh drying chemicals which tend to dry and age the skin. In addition salicylic acid, alcohol and peroxide as well as retinoid creams or antibiotics will increase your skin sensitivity to sun.This over-drying can actually result in even more acne than before, as the sebaceous glands become triggered to create more sebum (oil) to make up for what was just stripped away! In addition they actually may have some serious long-term side effects (FDA recently warned about benzoyl peroxide).

Prescription acne treatments are indeed chemically synthesized.  Even if they may work to provide short-term solutions, the “health cost” may be very significant (ex. Accutane being pulled from market and its generics still on market, oral contraceptives used for acne).In addition, unless the the source of acne is targeted, most of the products mentioned above provide only a temporary solution what makes you think twice about using them and exposing yourself to serious and often long term side-effects that come with the territory. Our AcnEase users already get to experience first hand about the power and effectiveness of an all-natural acne treatment, and adding any or all of these tips to your current skincare routine is sure to take your complexion over the top!

Wanna get in on the all-natural fun? Check out these quick and simple solutions for getting rid of acne without relying on harsh chemicals!

Step 1: Form good habits!

Resist the urge to pop! Surely we’ve all been tempted, but popping a pimple can further inflame the area, and can cause bacteria to spread to other pores, leading to more pimples! Popping is also the quickest way to lead to an acne scar, so if you need to tone down the red, try icing the area for a few seconds, and try to keep the area clean until the infection goes away on its own, which usually takes about 3-5 days. The integrity of your skin will be the ultimate reward for your patience!

Keep your fabrics clean. The simple act of washing those pillow cases can go a long way in preventing the buildup of bacteria from compromising your complexion! Same goes for bath towels, hand towels, and anything else that might touch your face. If you work out, always make sure to wash that sweaty gear, including sports bras, after every session at the gym. Acne starts from within, but keeping a clean surface is equally important in keeping those pores clean.

Step 2: Heal yourself, and your skin, from your kitchen!

Best to ingest: garlic, turmeric, berries, fish. You are what you eat...and it shows on your skin! When eating to help with symptoms of acne, the most effective tactic is to work with the body to curb inflammation. In terms of acne, inflammation is the body’s response to the bacteria formed when a pore becomes clogged with excess sebum, along with dead skin cells, dirt and debris. By doing your best to avoid processed foods, which include meats containing nitrates or other preservatives, baked snacks, refined grains such as white flour, and anything with a high sugar content, and replacing them with naturally effective options, your skin will surely reflect the newfound care you show toward it. The easiest foods to add to any diet include antioxidant-rich strawberries and blueberries, or protein-rich nuts such as almonds or walnuts. Garlic and turmeric, both well known for their high anti-inflammatory properties can make for a nice curry, which can easily be paired with an Omega 3-rich fish such as black cod, for those nights when you feel like your skin could use a little extra love.

Ready to wear: honey, oatmeal, cucumber, yogurt. Any of these ingredients can make for a great mask when you’re looking to treat your skin to some chemical-free indulgence. One of our favorite recipes only calls for two ingredients: yogurt and honey. The lactic acid in dairy works to slough and exfoliate dead skin cells, while zinc targets inflamed pores. Combined with the antibacterial and moisturizing power of honey, and you’ve got yourself a quick and easy treatment mask, minus the harsh, drying chemicals. 

Honey and Yogurt Mask For Acne

2 tbsp plain yogurt

1 tbsp organic honey

Mix both ingredients in a small bowl, and apply to a clean face. Leave on for about 10 minutes before rinsing away with lukewarm water, and pat skin dry with a clean towel.

Herbs. Ahh, the healing power of herbal remedies. Herbs have been used by varying cultures for thousands of years to treat everything from joint pain to menstrual woes to acne. AcnEase wouldn’t be what it is without the use of natural medicine, and when supplemented with additional ways to add herbs to your skincare routine, you’re sure to bring your best face forward. Whether you’re looking for a nice, pore-purging herbal steam, or some herb-infused water, basil, chamomile, and lemon all work to treat pores to an extra special

Step 3: Treat the problem at its source

All of the above-mentioned tips can make for a wonderful supplement to any skincare routine, but unless you work to treat the problem at its source, those bumps will be back in a matter of time. Acne is usually caused by a hormonal imbalance, which triggers the sebaceous glands to produce an excess of sebum, which can clog pores. AcnEase uses 100% natural ingredients to create a buffer between the hormones and the sebaceous glands, making it a totally safe alternative to harsh chemical treatments that delivers real results! The botanical ingredients that make up the various AcnEase® treatments were selected based on years of research and trials as the safest and most effective combination to not only eliminate acne symptoms, but also prevent acne from returning. It is the only natural treatment on the market that PREVENTS acne (with a high user success rate too), which is KEY to the process of breaking the acne cycle.

The best part of working a natural alternative to your advantage is that you get to find what works for your lifestyle. Too busy to sit down for a steam and facial mask? Just whip those ingredients into a smoothie to enjoy as a drink on the go! Hectic schedule changing every day? Just choose the acne treatment right for you and let AcnEase do the work! Finding practical solutions is the best way to assure continuously good habits, so give your skin the love it deserves with some natural healing!
