If you have acne, you know that it is not easy to treat. It is a condition often misunderstood. Many people think lack of hygeine or a bad diet cause acne, when in reality it is more hormone related. Many people with acne probably even have cleaner faces and eat better, in an effort to cure the acne. While nothing will cure acne, there are some natural things you can do to significantly reduce it.
Start washing your face with something all natural, such as Burt Bee’s natural face wash. It is full of soothing herbs that soothe your skin’s inflammation and aids in healing breakouts.
Mix a few drops of tea tree oil and lavendar oil into a few cups of water. Store in a glass bottle and use as an astringent for your face. Apply this after each washing and in between washings. The tea tree oil kills bacteria and aids in healing and the lavendar is very soothing to your skin.
Burt Bee’s makes an all natural blemish treatment that you can roll on your face. Alternately, you can use pure aloe vera as a healing, leave-on facial treatment.
Some herbs taken internally can help acne such as Red Clover and Dandelion.
Another therapy that is very promising is light therapy. Blue spectrum light actually kills bacteria and reduces acne. Red spectrum light promotes collegan and aids in would healing. Use your favorite search engine to search for ‘acne light’. You can get a bulb to put in a lamp for as little as $40. The therapy is to sit under this light for about 10 minutes a day.
All the best to you as you use these natural therapies!
