What is acne exactly? Acne is a term for the red sore like bumps that can occur anywhere on the body but most commonly on the face, chest, neck, back, shoulders and even buttocks.
Acne is formed when excess sebum (oil) clogs the skins pores resulting in a buildup of bacteria.
The bacteria feeds off the sebum causing infection which in turn causes the unsightly sores and rashes that most every person has been forced to endure at some point in their life.
Seeing a dermatologist or buying over the counter products for acne can be expensive.
Some might even question the safety and efficacy of some acne treatments.
You can get rid of acne naturally and safely with some of the following homemade remedies.
One of the simplest ways to prevent acne in the first place or keep it to a minimum is to drink plenty of water every day.
Deceptively simple, many people do not get the recommended 7 to 8 (8 oz) servings of water a day that the skin needs to retain a good complexion.
Water included in milk, juices, and caffeine free beverages can all contribute toward the 7 to 8 servings.
Drink herbal water that consists of water boiled with fenugreek seeds and corn hair for even more effect.
A simple past made of baking soda and water can be applied to the effective area.
Baking soda is a natural exfoliant.
Lime or lemon juices also contain high citric levels and exfoliate the skin as well.
Cooked oatmeal, cooled and applied to the skin will naturally draw out impurities and absorb excess oil.
Aloe Vera has been used as a natural skin regimen for ages.
It can get rid of acne naturally by healing the acne itself.
Quality of lifestyle including rest, stress levels, diet and exercise all play a huge role in how your skin looks.
Like drinking water, these tips are deceptively simple but ignoring them will often result in unwanted eruptions on the skin.
Aim for 8 hours of sleep a night.
Take vitamins and eliminate excess sugar and caffeine in your diet.
Exercise is not just for the heart and muscles.
Your skin is an organ and exercise plays a vital role in keeping it healthy.
Your skin needs some down time just like the rest of you does.
Engage in activities that buoy the spirits and relax the mind.
Your skin will thank you for it.
