Cheap And Natural Pimple Treatments

Aug 17, 2007
Consider cheaper, alternative, natural, effective treatment methods to get the best cure for your acne, zit, pimple or blackhead problem. By their mid-teens, nearly 35% of teenagers have acne severe enough to require some type of treatment from a medical professional. Living with acne can be very difficult, and even more difficult to find just the right acne treatment for you.

In a survey conducted in Great Britain, 95% of 16-year-old males and 83% of 16 year-old females had acne. People of all races and ages have acne. Acne rosacea is a red rash predominantly on the face. Acne vulgaris is most commonly experienced around puberty, typically of the face, shoulders and chest.

I think the cause of acne is related to our acidic, inflammatory 'standard American diet' (SAD) and that would also influence all of our hormones including stress hormones. Doctors think certain factors might cause or contribute to acne including hormone increases in teenage years, hormone changes in pregnancy, starting or stopping birth control pills, heredity, medicines and greasy make-up. Scientists are trying to find the cause of acne and working on ways to prevent plugs.

Raw apple cider vinegar application to the skin is a cheap, alternative acne treatment that has worked for many adults, teens and children with acne, zits, pimples, or blemishes. Popping pimples can cause infection and scarring; best not to do it. One helpful remedy seems to be to use ice to reduce the swelling caused by inflamed pimples: rub it over the blemishes for 2-3 minutes.

Shave carefully and try both electric and safety razors to see which works best for you. Try relaxation techniques to reduce stress, including meditation and yoga breathing exercises. Drinking lots of pure, filtered water may be one of the most important things you can do for your acne, working from the inside out.

It bears repeating, you want to be good to your skin and never pop or squeeze a pimple no matter how tempting. Make sure not to use hot water on your face, always use lukewarm water. Try a diligent application of coconut oil several times a day and at bedtime to see the healing benefits.

Too many chemicals can strip your skin of its natural oils and the skin will overproduce oil to compensate for it, blocking your pores and causing more acne. Use exercise such as Yoga and Tai Chi to improve blood flow to the skin and support the healing process; it also boosts the condition of your internal organs which allows them to eliminate toxins more effectively. For the best acne treatment that has worked for many apply virgin coconut oil to the area daily; try it on a small test area for a day or two first.

Any makeup you use should list on the label non-acnegenic or non-comedogenic. If you're going to buy acne products, it's much more worth your while to buy acne-treating products that work against current pimples and prevent the occurrence of new ones.

To cure yourself of acne, you need to correct the problems going on inside of your body that are causing the acne. When your liver gets overloaded with toxins it'll send the toxins out through your skin as well as other organs of elimination. Adding a lot of fresh, raw fruit to the diet has helped many people clear their skin up; there are tons of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in fruits.

The best acne treatment is a diet that will help the body eliminate waste; if you're eating the standard American diet (SAD) it'll be reflected in your skin. Some alternative doctors recommend eating a raw clove of garlic daily for acne; you can chop one up and add it to your daily salad!

Eating fruits that are red or orange in color will help improve you skin health and help to prevent acne. Good clear skin is often a reflection of a good digestive system. The two most common digestive concerns that affect your skin are not enough water and not enough fiber.

The next time you want to have a snack, instead of junk food, help your skin - have an apple, orange, peach, pear, banana, plum, berries or any other fruit. Drink plenty of pure, filtered water, a minimum of a quart a day.

You should see the results of your cheap acne home treatment remedies, with improved skin, within just a few days. Naturally you can't expect to get rid of your acne in just a few days; natural treatments take a little time to work; but if you're persistent, you'll get skin free of pimples and blemishes without the serious side effects that you find in commercial acne medicines. And whatever you do, stop wasting your money buying hundreds of dollars in acne or pimple skin care treatments; use cheaper natural methods.
