Acne treatments that work - safely and naturally

If you are looking for acne treatments that work, you s hould begin by making some changes in your diet and lifestyle and combining them with certain supplements and natural acne treatment methods you can do from home.

Limit face washing to twice per day, morning and night with a gentle cleanser lathered into skin with warm water. After 30 seconds, rinse off with cold water to close pores and gently pat face dry with towel. Avoid harsh cleansers, hot water, or over scrubbing, as these can actually worsen acne.

Get enough quality, restful sleep to help reduce stress. Good sleep also help the body heal. Try to spend about 15 minutes in the sun before applying sunscreen to your face, to help you get Vitamin D which is helpful healing acne blemishes. (By all means, then apply the sunscreen to avoid other serious skin problems.)

Supplementing with antioxidants and power vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin B5, and Vitamin C are also effective to help you achieve clear skin. Check with your doctor before beginning any supplements, and never exceed safe limits.

There are several other acne treatments that work. Drinking freshly brewed (hot or cold) green tea or white tea, unsweetened, is a great choice for natural herbal antioxidants that can help to promote clear skin. Eating foods such as raw apples, and fresh vegetables such as spinach, cucumbers, carrots,and tomatoes are all great acne fighting foods which also good for your overall heath. Berries are super food in the fight for clear skin. So make sure to indulge in blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries.

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a great, inexpensive natural acne treatment that can be swabbed directly onto skin or diluted with water to be used as a facial toner. ACV helps skin in several way; by exfoliating, balancing pH levels, and breaking down fatty deposits in skin.

Honey masks also help to clear the skin from acne because of it's antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Honey masks can be made from 2 tablespoons honey mixed with 1 tablespoon of either olive oil, lemon juice, or sugar. Masks can also be made using oatmeal as a source to soothe skin inflammation.

For a natural direct spot treatment of acne blemishes, use 100% tea tree oil applied with a cotton swab to affected area. Tea tree oil has disinfectant and antibacterial properties and is quite effective in aiding acne breakouts.
