Hi Aimee,

I was also in your position facing problem choosing the suitable product for acne, i tried various products, some works some don’t i tried some home remedies for acne, you can also try out these remedies.

1. Do not pick, press or rub your pimples. These things generally increase the sebum production and rupture the membranes below your skin. The infection and sebum will reach below your skin and result in more pimples. Also, you risk increasing the chances of leaving scars on your face.

2. Wash your face twice a day using a mild soap. It is even better if you can get sulfur-based soap especially for acne. If your skin is too oily, use a soap with benzoyl peroxide. Do not use brushes, rough sponges or anything same on your face. You shouldn’t, though, over-wash your face because it will actually stimulate your sebaceous glands to produce more sebum which will add to your acne.

3. Check if it is because of the food. For several people, food allergy can cause very severe acne problem. You should avoid taking in too much oily and spicy food. Most recent studies have proven that acne can also be caused by milk which includes hormones as well as seafood with pretty higher levels of iodine. If feasible, cut down on those foods. Some other foods you may consider staying away from are: dairy products, meat, sugar, deep-fried food, nut butters, etc. On the other hand, it is considered that green vegetables, vegetable juices and foods rich in zinc can help ease acne problem.

4. Every day drink more water. “Eight glasses of water a day can keep acne away.” says acne expert. The point is that water can carry waste substance out of our body and it really helps treat and stop acne flare-ups.

5. If possible do not wear makeup. Makeup products can block your pores, result in more blackheads and pimples. If you have to wear makeup, make sure it is water-based. Be sure to clean your makeup brushes regularly and clean your skin prior to you sleep.

6. Do not apply oily products. Avoid goods such as intense oil-based facial moisturizers, hair pomades, and oily cleansers.

7. Keep your face clean. Do not lay your chin on your hands or constantly touch your face. Routinely shampoo your hair and keep it off your face, especially when you sleep.

8. Exercise moderately as it helps in blood circulation and elimination of toxins.

9. Stay stress-free. Research have revealed that stress not only worsens acne flare-up, it also worsens the overall skin condition. Talk to your friends, listen to your favorite music, or take a walk in the park. There are many things you can do to be stress free.
10. Get Sunshine and fresh air. Sunshine stimulates vitamin D in the body, an vital vitamin for healthy skin. Fresh air and sunshine can also reduce stress (tip #9) and increase oxygen to the skin. Don’t get burnt in the sun though. Burnt and heavily tanned skin forms a layer on the skin that doesn’t exfoliate quickly enough and can lead to blocked pores.

An oatmeal mask is soothing for the face and easy to make. Grind a handful of oatmeal in a blender or coffee grinder. Mix the oatmeal powder with a little water, apply to your face and lay down.

Acne does not only confine to appearing at our face. It can also appear at other places like the neck, shoulder and back area. Treating back acne is similar to treating facial acne but additional steps need to be taken. Here are some tips that you can include in your back acne treatment regime.

1. Wear loose clothing

Tight clothing tends to absorb our perspiration and they also make it stick to the skin. This can cause our skin to have difficulty breathing. When dirt and perspiration are trapped and stick on to the skin, it can cause irritation and may aggravate your acne condition.

Wearing loose clothing can help to prevent further irritation to your skin. It also allows your skin to breathe hence lessening the chances of pores blockage.

2. Medication

I only use natural ingredients to help me cure my acne now and tea tree oil is a great ingredient. It consist of anti bacteria properties and it can help to kill off the bacteria that are in your acne. It is only a 100% natural ingredient hence there are definitely no side effects as compared to conventional products in the market that are using harsh chemicals.

3. Practice good hygiene

Back acne treatment does not include only medications and your hygiene habits play a part too. It is recommended that you take a shower once you finish a work out or return from home after a long day. Sleeping immediately without taking a shower can cause the dirt and perspiration to stick on to your skin for a long period of time. This can result in more acne break outs.

You should also change your bed sheet regularly and try not to re-wear clothes that were worn before. Wear a clean set of clothes every day and you can prevent dirt and bacteria to have contact with your skin.

Effective back acne treatment

On top of these tips, it is also recommended that you keep a look out on your diet. Avoid eating junk foods and eat more natural food such as vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. These are healthy foods that contain lots of essential nutrients and minerals that can help to keep your body immune system strong to prevent back acne break outs.
