Heal Your Pimples Naturally Forever

Aug 17, 2007
There is hope -- keep researching, learning and testing and you'll find the right treatment for you. Because I'm a registered nurse and have come in contact with many acne patients, I've learned a lot over the years about acne, pimples, acne scars, and acne treatments. While most forms of acne are merely troublesome or embarrassing, there are some forms of acne that can lead to scarring and pitting of the skin.

While almost all young people experience acne at least once, it's been reported that 47% of those in their 20s and 30% of those in their 30s had acne. Acne rosacea is a red rash predominantly on the face. Acne is most common in teenagers and young adults. Numerous studies have revealed that acne is not simply a problem of the young; it also afflicts people of many ages, and can severely affect their daily lives.

Experts just can't agree on what causes acne. As time goes by, more research may help determine just how male and female hormones influence acne and the role diet plays. New studies show that during times of high emotional stress, such as during exam time in high school, there are more acne breakouts; so are stress hormones the culprits?

If you wear make-up choose it carefully; it should be oil free. Try applying a thin layer of coconut oil and massaging it deep into the skin to heal and soothe the affected area. Acne and its treatment is one of the most misunderstood topics there is when it comes to acne skin care.

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. No over-the-counter creams can help your acne from the inside out; they can only kill some of the bacteria on your face and help reduce the redness. 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.

A new, non-invasive treatment using red light and blue light in combination has been extremely successful on severe acne. Use papaya and the seeds for exfoliating. Shave carefully and try both electric and safety razors to see which works best for you.

Make sure not to use hot water on your face, always use lukewarm water. This is a little messy but you can try making a paste by mixing three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon together and applying the paste on your pimples at bedtime for two weeks, and wash it off each morning; honey has anti-bacterial action - a cheap, natural home remedy. Most commercial cleansers are harsh on the face and trying to find the right one for you could cost a fortune.

It's always best to seek non-invasive and natural treatment for any skin condition. One treatment method some people have used is applying cornstarch, egg whites or milk of magnesia as a facial mask.

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. Whether you eat a natural diet of living fruits and vegetables or eat dead junk food, what you eat may have a direct or indirect affect on the male hormones which may or may not play some part in acne. To cure yourself of acne, you need to correct the problems going on inside of your body that are causing the acne.

Essential fatty acids are particularly important to people with inflammatory conditions such as eczema and acne. 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.

Put two tablespoons of coconut oil in your all fruit smoothies and blend. Good nutrition will help your skin from the inside out. Eating foods with essential fatty acids are particularly important to people with dry skin or acne.

The two most common digestive concerns that affect your skin are not enough water and not enough fiber. Use olive oil with a little very fresh flaxseed oil in your salads.

One should always think about cheaper, alternative, natural, effective treatment methods to get the best cure or solution to their acne, zits, pimples and blackhead problems. By simply following a plan you've developed for yourself and sticking with it, you can reduce the severity of your acne or even eliminate it entirely. You should see the results of your cheap pimple and acne home treatment remedies, with improved skin, within just a few days.
