Tips To Get Rid Of Acne Naturally

Feb 9, 2008
Let's face it, having acne isn't a pleasant experience. But what is the best way to get rid of it? Are there any ways to get rid of acne naturally that actually work?

Fortunately, the answer is yes!

In fact, using natural products can be a quick and easy way to reduce your acne or even eliminate it altogether.

The more natural the products, the better.

Start by increasing the amount of water you drink. This will help to detoxify your body. And when I say water, I mean actual water. Not water disguised inside tea, coffee, juice, smoothies or soda pop. Just pure water. With the state of tap water nowadays, it's probably best to filter your water. This is cheaper than buying bottled and is at least as pure. Jug style water filters are easy to use and many are designed to be kept in your fridge so that your drink is cool as well.

Water helps rehydrate your body, which is around 50 to 60 percent water depending on your age.

Water also helps flush away the different toxins that accumulate in your body and helps your body to naturally carry out detoxification.

You'll also find that cutting out things like soda will likely lead you to a healthier diet, which in turn should help decrease your acne problems.

Next up, start taking flax seed oil on a regular basis. You can buy this from your local health food store or over the internet or even in your local WalMart. Although it's not technically an acne cure, it helps heal your skin and many people have reported having less acne symptoms once they've started adding flax seed oil to their regime. It's also a great natural moisturizer.

Use a natural cleansing routine. Most commercial products contain things that are harmful to your skin. Alcohol in its various disguises will dehydrate your skin, so avoid any products containing it. You'll likely be shocked at just how many products this rules out at a stroke. Although it may seem a pain to stand in the supermarket aisle, reading the fine print on the labels, remember that you only need to do this once. Then keep using the best product you come across.

You can narrow down your search by looking for "sensitive skin" labels as these should be less harsh than the majority of the products on the shelf.

Don't pick at your acne! This is easier said than done, but resisting the temptation to pop your zits as much as possible is a good move. Squeezing your pimples can lead to scarring and will definitely spread the infection as the contents of your pimples will be transferred to your hands and then elsewhere unless you religiously wash your hands the instant you've given in to the temptation of popping that zit.

Another possible natural remedy for acne is to beat an egg yolk and then dab it onto the affected area using a clean piece of cotton wool. Remember to rinse off the mixture after about 15 minutes.
