Home Remedy for Acne

 

Acne is a common skin problem, more prevalent in teens than adults but can occur in both. Nothing can be as frustrating as Acne and there are many causes of it.

Here are a few tips that may be able to help you get rid of Acne:

Never pop a pimple as it just makes the Acne worst and can cause infection, just leave it alone and it will heal quicker.Otherwise you may make the inflammation worst.

For women, you should always remove all your makeup at night, wash your face completely and try to get all the make up off. You could also use special makeup made of sensitive skin that doesn't use oil as a base.

Nettle Tea is another solution, this tea has a herb that has some curing power and really helps work wonders on skin problems. Try having four cups a day and it may be helpful to skin problems.

Aloe Vera juice applied twice a day can greatly speed up the healing of acne lesions. You could find Aloe Vera juice at most health food stores.

Another lotion that uses bee propolis extract may also be effective. Mix eight ounces of water and 11 drops of bee propolis extract. This has been proven effective with some people. Myth Acne

Myth #1: Acne is caused by poor hygiene. If you believe this myth, and wash your skin hard and frequently, you can actually make your acne worse. Acne is not caused by dirt or surface skin oils. Although excess oils, dead skin and a day's accumulation of dust on the skin looks unsightly, they should not be removed by hand scrubbing. Vigorous washing and scrubbing will actually irritate the skin and make acne worse. The best approach to hygiene and acne: Gently wash your face twice a day with a mild soap, pat dry--and use an appropriate acne treatment for the acne.

Myth #2: Acne is caused by diet. Extensive scientific studies have not found a connection between diet and acne. In other words, food does not cause acne. Not chocolate. Not french fries. Not pizza. Nonetheless, some people insist that certain foods affect their acne. In that case, avoid those foods. Besides, eating a balanced diet always makes sense. However, according to the scientific evidence, if acne is being treated properly, there's no need to worry about food affecting the acne.

Myth #3: Acne is caused by stress. The ordinary stress of day-to-day living is not an important factor in acne. Severe stress that needs medical attention is sometimes treated with drugs that can cause acne as a side effect. If you think you may have acne related to a drug prescribed for stress or depression, you should consult your physician.

Myth #4: Acne is just a cosmetic disease. Yes, acne does affect the way people look and is not otherwise a serious threat to a personís physical health. However, acne can result in permanent physical scars--plus, acne itself as well as its scars can affect the way people feel about themselves to the point of affecting their lives.

Myth #5: You just have to let acne run its course. The truth is, acne can be cleared up. If the acne products you have tried havenít worked, consider seeing a dermatologist. With the products available today, there is no reason why someone has to endure acne or get acne scars.
