Herbal Acne Remedies Will Work For You

Article by Caizechong

Skin acne (usually seen as pimples, blackheads, and cysts) is a symptom of a chemical imbalance inside your body. That imbalance can be caused by any number of factors. The two main acne triggers are hormonal imbalances and a build up of toxins in your blood and lymph.

Get some pure Turmeric powder from your local grocery store. Once you have this, sprinkle a small amount into a bowl. Add a small amount of whole milk to the Turmeric, you want to make a paste with this mixture. Thoroughly mix together. Consuming multivitamins also helps as acne breakouts indicates lack of vitamin supplements in the body. The skin should be sustained on effective nutrition and this vital organ should be supported supplementing it with the right nutrients. Otherwise, the skin will fight back. Excessive secretion of sebum, clogging of the pores reduces skin’s healing ability and efficiency in fighting bacteria.

Rub vitamin E oil into the scarred areas. Vitamin E is a proven healer for scars. It encourages the growth of new skin, which will speed the healing process of the pitted areas. Vitamin E is twice as effective when used after exfoliation, but you should use the vitamin E oil twice a day in the morning and the evening even though you cannot exfoliate that often.

The olive is regular old cooking oil from the grocery store, which is an amazing cleanser, especially if you wear eye makeup! It takes it right off! It also supplies tons of beneficial moisture for soft smooth skin. The lemon juice helps to dry up existing pimples. After massaging the mixture on the face, thoroughly rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a towel.

Often with acne, there is Zinc deficiency. Taking a good Zinc supplement and eating foods that contain this mineral can contribute to a happy face when you look into the mirror. Zinc regulates the activity of oil glands and helps healing wounds. Some other signs of its deficiency are: hair loss, white spots on nails, decline in sense of smell and taste, slow wound healing, skin lesions, etc. Eat foods that contain Zinc: egg yolks, fish, kelp, mushrooms, pumpkin seeds, sardines, seafood, legumes, whole grains, alfalfa, sage. (remember to get good quality of these products, possibly organic!)

Natural acne cures using Aloe Vera are healthy. This natural plant contains powerful ingredients which will destroy the germ that causes acne. Though the plant is very bitter, you can extract the juice which you will in turn drink to help in soothing the skin thereby eradicating the acne causing bacteria.

Prevent drying with a good moisturizer. Certain washes and acne solutions dry out the skin. Use a moisturizer after each wash to restore the skin’s moisture levels. Double up the protection by choosing a moisturizer with an SPF.
