Natural treatments for acne are the only treatments that are completely harmless in your battle against acne. The only way that you can prevent acne is either through very harsh prescribed antibiotics or through safe and effective natural treatments. I am going to share some things with you that you can do to treat and prevent acne.
One thing that you can do to treat and prevent acne is to use toothpaste on swelling and red pimples. Toothpaste will actually help reduce the spelling and redness a whole lot in a little amount of time. Take some regular toothpaste and put it on the affected areas right before you go to bed. Leave in on your face overnight and in the morning you should see a big difference in the swelling and redness.
Another thing that will help prevent and treat acne is to drink a lot of water each day. Make sure that you drink 10-12 full glasses of water each day. Water will flush out the toxins that are causing acne and will help your skin a whole lot. It does not get much easier than water as a natural treatment for acne.
You also want to make sure that you eat plenty of fruits and vegetables each day. They will help with water intake and provide your body with a lot of great vitamins and minerals that will help fight off acne.
Another great thing to use to treat acne is a lemon face wash. With the skin of a lemon and warm water, wash your face gently. Let the water and lemon juice stand on your face for around thirty minutes to do its magic. You will be amazed at the results within a week or two.
Acne can be hard to treat and prevent if you do not know what to do to treat it. There is a lot of guess work when you go to the doctor and get on harsh medicines. They will try one thing, and if it does not work, will go to another. This can lead to a lot of harm to your body. The great thing about natural treatment is that there will never be any harm and you will be able to get rid of acne a lot faster and keep it off.
Another tip to help treat and prevent acne is to stay out of the kitchen. When foods are frying grease becomes airborne and settles on your face and skin. This will clog your pores and will cause your acne to get worse than it already is. So, if there is food frying, go the other way.
The most important thing I want you to remember is that you need to stop popping pimples. Popping pimples spreads that bacteria causing more acne, and can also push the pus further down into the skin causing cystic acne. So, the next time you find yourself picking and popping, try to stop. I know it is hard looking at that ugly pimple, but try to hold back so that your skin can heal.
