Treat Acne Scars Naturally

Some of those include things you’ve never thought of, and that are cheap like air: they cost nothing. They can be found in nature, in markets, in naturist shops. The secret is to get informed on how to combine and use them. For example, one of them is salty seawater.

Place 2 tablespoons of baking soda in your hand, and mix into it 1 teaspoon of water. This will create a mixture that you can massage into the skin to remove dead skin cells that clog the pores. Rinse with water after 1 minute. This will keep the pores clear of acne-causing oils and bacteria.

Hormonal imbalance can occur when we are eating junk foods that are high in sugar, chemicals and animal fats. Foods that contain high sugar content can cause an insulin spike in our body that can lead to oily skin. A bad diet, such as the regular consumption of foods that are processed or that have a high sugar or fat content, portends the development of hormonal imbalance because excessive sugar instigates an insulin spike which leads to oily skin.

Spread fresh lemon juice over your acne. Lemon juice is naturally acidic, helping to dry out skin and improve your acne. A gentle skin cleanser is essential for acne-prone skin. Avoid bar and liquid soaps, deodorizing soaps, antibacterial soaps and liquids, body washes and anything that has perfume or scent added. These can aggravate the skin and increase sebum production that will result in more acne. Plus, they are drying to the skin and destroy the delicate balance the skin uses to protect itself from germs. The same goes for scrubbing the skin with a cloth or other harsh fabric. Always use mild, natural skin care products intended for delicate, acne prone skin.

The nature has gifted us with lots of herbs that possess natural skin cleansing properties. Herbs such as holy basil, aloe vera, guduchi, yasthtimadhu (licorice), neem (A. indica) etc. have been prescribed to treat various skin ailments since many years. They all have natural anti-inflammatory and anti-acne properties.

Add a small amount of sugar to your face wash to make a scrub. This will help remove excess dirt from your face. However, you will need to add the sugar right before you wash your face, as the sugar dissolves rather quickly.

Exercise regularly. Staying physically active helps improve circulation which is good for your complexion. Do aerobics such as jogging, dancing, or biking.
