Acne Cure: Use Cream

Jul 25, 2008
A very effective treatment for acne is using acne cream. Start by using an herbal soap to wash your face then apply a face cream. When applying the cream make sure to gently massage it onto your face. This will allow your skin to absorb the oils from the cream. This also seals the pores with the oils to assist in retaining your skins natural moisture and will enhance the curing effects of the cream. It is best to use the cream two to three times per day, try doing in the morning and before bed at least.

The oils, vitamin A and E, and minerals in the creams help to feed, rebuild, and revitalize your skin. The minerals also help to defuse the toxic acids that have infected and inflamed the pores on your face.

To make the cream even more effective try adding 5 to 10 drops of pure tree tea oil to you 2 ounce container. Do not use more than 15. Tree tea oil has been found to be effective on various other skin disorders as well. It acts as an antibacterial, antiseptic, and anti fungal. Using the tree oil will assist in eliminating bacteria and fungus by providing oxygen to the cells, this will help to repair damaged skin from the acne.

Acne creams can enhance its properties if borage oil is added to it. Borage oil helps to control excess hormones that cause over production of sebum. During teenage the adrenal glands produce large quantities of androgens. These androgens help to activate bone growth and sexual maturity. The release of excess oil from the glands near the hair follicle is a side effect of these androgens. This excess oil gives rise to black heads, white heads, pimples and cysts. However, if you develop any rash or skin reactions while using these, it is advised to discontinue their use.

Creams that contain 2.5% benzoyl peroxide can also be used. These creams are suitable for many types of skin. There are stronger creams with 10% but the lower strenght of benzoyl peroxide is more successful in treating your acne problem. Just because it is stronger many people think that it will combat acne better. It may be tempting to use on a severe case of acne, but it just won't be ass effective. There are approximately 3% of people that are are allergic to benzoyl peroxide and can have swelling or cruting of the skin. Before using test on a small area to see how your skin reacts.
