10 remedies for acne

There are many natural remedies for acne, in addition, a healthy diet is important to prevent the formation of pimples, nodules and cysts.


Ten remedies for acne

1. Apply a honey mask to the face once or twice a weekHoney has antibacterial properties and is optimal for disinfecting and healing minor defects.
This remedy is also gentle on sensitive skin.
You can make a face mask:

  • Add lemon juice and tea tree oil.
  • Mix these liquids with the honey.
  • Apply the mixture to the face.
  • Leave on for about an hour.
  • Gently rinse the mask with lukewarm water.

2. Mask with bicarbonate. Some people prefer a mask with bicarbonate, which they make themselves from equal parts of water and bicarbonate.

3. Wash the face – you need to wash the face twice a day with a sulfur soap specific to acne.
It is important to wash the skin extremely gently.
Do not rub or use a coarse cloth. Excessive washing can stimulate the sebaceous glands in the skin to produce even more sebum and thus make acne worse.

4. Keep hair out of your face.
If the patient wears long hair, he should keep it out of the face.
Hair contains oil and promotes rashes.
It is recommended to wash the hair frequently and after exercise.
It is also recommended to shave well the beard, which favors an accumulation of sebum in the cheek and chin area.
The electric shaver is better suited for this because it does not cause wounds and infections with the shaving cream.

5. Include chromium in the diet.
Chromium is also an excellent means of healing infections on the skin.
The daily supply of a chromium integrator accelerates the healing of the pimples and prevents further future rashes.

Lemon juice Many young people had observed a significant improvement after applying lemon juice
to the face.
The lemon has a cleansing, antiseptic, whitening (against stains) effect.
The lemon juice can be added to honey masks and must be applied in the evening; wash off after 2 to 3 hours.
If you feel a burning sensation on the skin, this remedy should not be used.
In addition, one should not expose oneself to direct sunlight after application.
You can drink a glass of lemonade every morning for a better effect.

7. Do not use make-up.
Frequent make-up of the skin favors the clogging of pores and causes the increase in pimples and blackheads.
If you want to use make-up, you should first apply a product that is water-based.
One should avoid covering cosmetics based on fat with silicones or acrylic acid esters. These substances clog pores and cause new acne.

8. Do not squeeze blackheads and pimples.
It can be tempting, but you must not squeeze pimples and blackheads, scratch them or touch them. This increases sebum production. In addition, when pressed, the membrane under the skin is injured, which causes the spread of infection and an increase in sebum under the skin.
The result is an increase in pimples.

9. Wash pillowcase and clothes daily.
The face lies on the pillow for several hours a day.
The pillow absorbs the oils of the skin.
The following night, dirt and oil come into contact with the face and cause another rash.
You should change the pillowcase frequently and not sleep on the same side of the pillow for several days.

10. Water paste Water paste
is a zinc oxide-based product available at the pharmacy.
Zinc works:

  • astringent
  • antiseptic
  • scarring,
  • antiinflammatory.

This remedy can be applied to the pimples three times a day until they dry out.

Diet and nutrition for acne

According to natural medicine, acne is a reaction caused by the accumulation of toxins in the body.
This happens when the organism is unable to excrete toxins via:

  • Defecation
  • Urine
  • Respiration.

The most effective diets are natural, for example:

  • Stone Age diet (Paleo diet),
  • Vegan diet with at least 50% raw food,
  • Blood group diet.

One should not think that a simple remedy can help if one continues to eat poorly.

The main treatment is a healthy diet, without:

  • processed products,
  • fried foods,
  • sweetened and stimulating drinks (coffee, tea, etc.)
  • Dairy products (cheese, yogurt, etc.)
  • Sweets,
  • fatty sauces (such as mayonnaise),
  • Supplements.

It is generally believed that cereals are harmless, but in reality they can cause malnutrition and raise blood sugar levels, especially if they contain gluten.

There are diets based on:

  • plant-based foods (vegan diet),
  • protein-containing foods (blood group diet),
  • both (Stone Age diet).

You can choose a diet that suits you the most.

If one diet does not bring the desired results, you can try another; however, you should always wait at least a month.
It is important to always eat well, even on weekends.

Many people were able to achieve good results just by changing their diet.

Conventional medicine recommends:

Eat carrots because they contain beta-carotene (vitamin A).
Vitamin A strengthens skin protection and actually avoids acne.
It helps to reduce sebum production.
This vitamin is mainly used to maintain and repair the tissues that make up the skin and mucous membrane.
Vitamin A is also a powerful antioxidant that serves to rid the body of toxins.

Eat foods containing zinc.
Zinc is an antibacterial substance and a necessary element for the sebaceous glands.
A diet low in zinc can cause acne rashes.
