Acne skin problems plague millions of people – and for those who do have acne know what burden acne truly is. Before purchasing expensive over-the-counter acne treatments, it is imperative to first try simple, home acne skin care remedies for acne problems.
Apple cider vinegar is a common, effective acne treatment along with Tea Tree Oil. When using apple cider vinegar for treating acne, ensure to dilute the ACV in 3 or 4 parts water first and apply to the skin with a clean cotton ball. Repeat this process 2-3 times a day and for overnight treatments, leave the ACV on without rinsing. When using this treatment remember that the smell of the apple cider vinegar may be unpleasant to some.
For a Tree Oil treatment, apply a clean cotton ball directly in the Tea Tree Oil and apply as needed. Do this until the acne is gone. Lemon juice has also been known to have positive results when treating acne.
Baking soda is an oil absorbent so toothpaste with it is a good treatment for acne. Certain people may have a sensitivity issue with toothpaste with baking soda on the skin (perhaps your skin turns red when brushing). In this case, it is wise to avoid such type of treatment. Those who do not have a sensitivity issue may apply toothpaste where needed. If you don’t have sensitive skin it is safe to use this treatment where needed.
Men tend to underutilize the homemade facial mask. It is time to put to bed preconceived notions about facial masks and start curing acne problems. There are numerous types of homemade facial masks that have proven results to ward off acne such as oatmeal, tomatoes, honey and apple, lemon juice and egg whites, baking soda mask, yeast mask, applesauce mask, sea salt or table salt mask, and pumpkin mask. Facial masks will help cleanse the pores and keep the face feeling fresh and vibrant.
Treat skin well by eating healthy foods, proper dieting practices and exercising as well. Keep skin from drying out and avoid using harsh medications for acne treatment as well. The work must be done to give the skin an opportunity to heal and look its best. Certain people are just born with naturally good looking skin while others are not. For those who do not have perfect looking skin, extra steps must be taken obviously.
If homemade and over the counter acne treatments do not work, seeing a dermatologist is highly recommended. It is very important to do what is necessary to remove acne, not only on the face, but on the shoulders and back as well. There is no need in a person hiding the dark because of their severe acne. The results speak for themselves and numerous treatments, whether homemade or prescription, have proven to work for millions of people.
