Acne is just a sign that something is not right in your body. First of all, change your diet. Eat LOTS of fruits and vegies, cut down the sugar intake (mine was mostly from soda), take a multivitamin (i take lots of extra B5), and drink alot of water. What else you'll need to do is look at all of the things that you feel is wrong in your life and do what you can to correct them. This is essential! It will lower your stress and give you peace of mind, which in turn greatly improves your overall health. I battled acne for years, many painful years!! I've searched everywhere to find something that works! This is the only solution, total mind and body health. Acne is your body's way of telling you there is something wrong, fix it! There are no immediate results that last, but this does because it CURES what is CAUSING the acne. After years of suffering with acne, I was willing to devote the time it took for this to work. The time it takes to try the quick fixes with their '90 day money back guarantee', you will be well on your way to perfectly clear and truly healthy skin. Acne is an imbalance inside of you, find the balance.
Wash face MORNING and NIGHT with any off the shelf ACNE CLEANSER ( they all basically have the same ingredients). Washing your face too much can cause you to brake out even more. Make sure to mostuirze with oil free face cream after every wash. Drink eight glasses of WATER a day and eat a fresh ORANGE every day ( THIS IS KEY). It really works trust me.
My husband has suffered from acne for many years of his life. Some people just have acne on their face, some like my husband, has it terribly all over their entire body. It's embarrassing, and painful physically and emotionally. My husband tried literally everything. I was determined to get rid of his acne one way or another. So one day I was shopping at the grocery store, and picked up a bottle of head and shoulders. I discovered that by washing your skin with head and shoulders it clears up acne with-in a matter of days! His acne on his entire body went away in 3 days. It works! My husband is the happiest he's been in years about his skin, and who would know that just a bottle of head and shoulders could do the trick!
For instructions, I recommend you apply head and shoulders to the skin where acne is present and lather really well. If you have extremely bad acne on different parts of your body, I recomment you bathe twice a day and lather very well and keep your skin as dry as possible. This remedy has done wonders for my husband, and I know it can do wonders for you!
Okay. I've tried everything under the sun. And this remedy I happened upon by chance. It's very simple. Use glycerin soap. It gets rid of the itchy skin, the acne, the dryness...basically you end up with beautiful, comfortable skin. I've always had a problem with dryness and itching on the rest of my skin and the glycerin soap cured that as well. I don't have to use lotion on my face or my body anymore, I have no oil on my face (and it's also not dry, it's perfectly balanced so my makeup stays beautiful all day), and my skin is comfortable instead of itchy and painful. I don't use any other acne products or toners or anything. It's awesome! Major soap companies remove the glycerin from their soap (which then causes dry skin which develops into many problems) and then put the glycerin in their other products, like lotions. So they sell you one product that creates a problem, then sell you another to 'fix' it, although many lotions (especially facial) end up causing even more problems, hence needing to sell you an acne product (which usually doesn't fix it either). So you spend a few bucks on a couple bars of soap, and end up 'needing' many more dollars worth of lotions and remedies! Very profitable!
Tan in a tanning bed or lay in the sun...the sun will dry the acne us as well as a tanning bed
Clean your cosmetic brushes and applicators in anti-bacterial soap at least once a month. This will keep makeup build up and bacteria at bay.
To help with acne:
Boil a pot of water and put a little salt in the water to create more steam, let the steam hit your face..careful not to get to close to the fire or the hot water...
take a couple cotton balls, pour witch hazel on them and wipe it all over your face...witch hazel also helps with cuts and burns..
Before bed, wash your face and towel dry. Next, simply mix together two parts sea salt and one part warm water to make a salty paste. Apply the paste over the blemish, cover it completly, and allow paste to dry. This salt paste will harden and stay on your face until you wash it off the next morning. The saltly mixture will dry up that nasty blemish and kill the bacteria in your skin! Try it - works like a charm!!
