It is not easy to get rid of acne, not just on the face but also on the whole body. Sometimes, frequent washing don’t do the trick of clearing them out. When looking for ways to treat them, we should choose these natural acne remedies and skin treatments first before taking any other medication.

Using aloe vera soap for the skin is good, since aloe vera has ingredients that enable wound healing. It may also be helpful to identify what is causing the pimple to breakout to know how to prevent them from reoccurring. If possible, keep your hands away from your face or from the pimple spots. Bear in mind that your hands have thousands of bacteria which may cause blackheads, whiteheads, and warts to develop.

If you want to remove blackheads from your face, it would help to use steaming water. Put a towel above your head and allow your face to absorb steam from your face. This will release your pores and blackheads can be cleaned easier. This is why a warm washcloth or steam is placed over a face before a facial. On this note, remember that whiteheads should not be squeezed because they tend to this appear after a few weeks. Squeezing a pimple should be avoided too, but if you can’t resist it, make sure to wipe the pus away with tissue, and a cleanser to allow it to heal properly. Use a blackhead remover too instead of fingernails, or any sharp object for that matter, so you don’t end up scarring the skin.

The foods we eat also have something to do with the development of acne on the skin. Because of this, we should make sure that our diet is low-fat and high in fiber. Aside from having a healthy diet, take vitamins and dietary supplements too to boost the immune system and keep the skin smooth.

Other acne remedies include apple cider vinegar spread over the face using a cotton ball. The vinegar acts as an astringent and removes oil, bacteria, and works quickly in making the skin smooth. After cleansing the face, we may also use the vinegar to close up the pores. Although the effects of rubbing garlic have not been proven to be a good acne remedy, some say that it clears pimple in no time. Sugar, which also has an antibacterial effect, can also be mixed with water and placed on the face upon washing it.

Some of the cheapest yet effective remedies for keeping the face smooth and clean are egg whites and oatmeal. More often than not, egg whites may be used as facial masks. All you need to do is to separate the yolk and leave it on your face overnight. For the oatmeal to take effect, it must be cooked, cooled down, and place on the face about fifteen minutes or so. These two effective methods take away impurities of the skin and leaves it looking smooth and clean.
