Natural Acne Solutions
Acne can be something that can haunt people for years, often not just causing facial scarring, but emotional as well. There are a plethora of treatments, pills, creams and the like out there, but there are also a number of simple, and natural, solutions out there. So, here are four easy and natural solutions that may give you an edge in the fight against acne.
1. Eliminate white flour from your diet.
Some studies support the idea that eliminating white flour and other processed foods could clear up your skin. If nothing else is working, it's definitely worth a shot. Bonus: replacing these foods with more fruits and veggies will benefit your waistline as well.
2. Try tea tree oil.
Salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide are, as you know, the industry's leading topical ingredients. If they're too harsh for your sensitive skin, reach with a product that depends on tea tree oil instead. It may be just what the doctor ordered.
3. Start the morning with hot water and lemon.
Fresh lemon, that is. This simple "tea" will help alkalize and detoxify your body and may help calm breakouts down. Make sure it's the first thing you drink!
4. Oil up!
You read that right. Dr. Hauschka Normalizing Day Oil contains ingredients that help the skin regulate oil production. Even better, it will calm inflammation and hyperpigmentation, making it a multitasking must-have. Think of it as fighting fire with fire.
