In this article, I am going to share with you some natural acne treatments that I have tried personally before. And hope these information will be helpful for you.
As you may already now, I used to be a acne-victim. The acne on my face made me feel horrible about myself and got me lost self-confidence. I spent a lot of money and efforts researching, buying and trying all difficult types of products and treatment methods. Some are natural acne treatments. Some are not. My conclusion is that, for short term effects, over-the-counter medicines like acne creams or antibiotics are effective and necessary. However, you should concurrently apply natural acne treatments for long term results.
Below are 4 effective tips I would like to recommend to you. Do these 4 things consistently and you will see long lasting effects.
Tip #1: Cut the Sugar intake.
You are what you eat. Too heavy sugar-intake actually harms your health, and your skin. The skins tends to produce more oil if you take too much sugars. The excess oils are the root cause of acne by forming whiteheads/blackheads and eventually develop into acne scars if not treated well. I know it’s not easy to change your diet habit, especially for those who like eat deserts. But you should at least try to reduce the amount or frequency of sugar intakes. The good thing is that once you start doing that, you will feel the difference pretty fast – in weeks or even days.
Tip #2: Get Plenty Vitamin C & Water.
You should drink a lot of water to detox yourself and speed up the process of your skin regeneration. This is more important for girls than boys as generally girls skin needs more water. Taking enough Vitamin C is also crucial because it’s a key component for skin repairing process. Vitamin C is available in fruits like oranges & apples. Eating more fruits on a daily basis will give you enough vitamin C and also help you cut sugar intake by eating less starch like rice or breads. Vitamin C tables are also recommended as a supplement,which are available in most convenient store.
Tip #3: Use Lemon on the Pimple
Rich in Vitamin C, Lemon is one of the most effective natural acne treatment. What you need is a fresh lemon. Slice it into small pieces and then rub a piece of lemon on the pimple. Leave the juice to soak in for around 20-30 minutes and wait for another 20-30 minutes for it to dry out on your skin (depends on your own skin condition, please be flexible). Then rinse it with warm water to remove the stickiness. Lemon is effective and natural acne treatment because it has citric acid – 100% natural, which when dried out can have an antibacterial effects. Lemon also helps tighten up your skin.
Tip #4: Use Tea Tree Oil
Not known by most of people, tea tree oil is one of the most effective and natural treatment for acne. Most of the time, you can find tea tree oil sold in small bottles in your nearby convenient store. Tea tree oil can kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. To use tea tree oil, wash your faces thoroughly and patting it dry. Apply tea tree oil directly onto the skins where acnes are developed. It helps to reduce acne/pimple’s size and speed up the healing process. Tea tree oil also help to keep you skin feel comfortable so feel free to apply it on other places of the skin.
Do bear in mind that, all above 4 natural acne treatments don’t make your acne disappear over night. It takes some time for your to see effects. According to my personal experiences, if you do it persistently, you will see effects which are long lasting. While applying creams or simply eating antibiotics are more like short term solution. I suggest you use both long term and short term treatments for maximum results.
