Natural Ways to Fight Acne



Acne is a disorder that causes skin eruptions and inflammation.  It usually occurs during the adolescence/teenage years and is suffered or endured by nearly 90 percent of the teen young population.  Acne is also quite commonly seen in adults.  The increased production of the Testosterone hormone and natural oils in the body during the teenage years is responsible for the formation of pimples. 

A variety of factors such as stress, psychological disturbances, and irregular living habits can also bring on Acne.  Acne skincare with harsh, drying chemicals can actually make acne worse and dry out skin.  Tea Tree Oil, Aloe Vera, Zinc, and Vitamin A are natural products you can use to help clear up Acne.

Tea Tree Oil is obtained from the Melaleuca alternifoliais tree from Australia. It is very effective against Acne as it contains bacteria-fighting substances called Terpenes. Acne is often caused by bacteria and the Terpenes either outright kill them or weaken them enough to be destroyed by protective antibodies.

Aloe Vera Gel is also a highly effective natural cure against Acne. The enzyme-rich gel has very soothing anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. It can also be taken internally and helps clean up and detox the digestive tract. This in turn can help clear up the skin.

Zinc is taken in the form of capsules.  It helps to strengthen the human immune system and to repair the skin.

Vitamin A capsules are also a natural and effective Acne cure.  Vitamin A promotes healthy skin.

Vitamin E also helps in countering Acne. It is a natural antioxidant and beneficial for the skin.  Vitamin E comes in soft gelatin capsules that contain Vitamin E, Soybean Oil, Glycerin, and Water.

The most important thing to do if you suffer from Acne is to drink at least six to eight, eight oz. glasses of water everyday.  Include lots of fresh fruit and leafy green vegetables in your daily diet.  Try adding a fruit or vegetable to each meal or at snacktime to ensure your getting the daily allowance.

Avoid touching your face and keep your hair away from your face as much as possible.  Avoid picking at pimples unless their on the surface of the skin.  If you do pop a pimple, make sure you wash your hands before touching your face thoroughly and wash your face immeditely afterwards.

Use a natural cleanser or acne scrub that exfoliates dead skin cells to effeciantly kill bacteria like Carley's Clear and Smooth.  This all natural acne treatment works great for all skin types, especially on acne and sensitive skin types. It's even gentle enough for the dryest of skin. We love it because it doesn't contain any harsh chemicals, fragrances, or animal by products.

If you're prone to Acne is to avoid using heavy make-up ridden with toxic chemicals that can clog pores and make acne worse.  Opt for a great natural mineral makeup line like Southern Magnolia Minerals or Josie Maran Cosmetics.
