Get Rid Of Acne Fast Naturally

Helen asks…

How to get my acne under control naturally?

I have had acne for over 10 years and the prescriptions from the dermatologist have not been effective. I’m tired of spending hundreds of dollars on acne prescriptions. I started washing my wash with Noxzema and putting cocoa butter on my skin afterwards.

I drink water, and exercise too

Any advice
I cannot use any antibiotics last time I used antibiotics for my acne I got an infection.
Like are there certain foods I can eat.
The cocoa butter has really cleared up my acne scars

Cocoa butter is not a good moisturizer for acne prone skin but I suspect you know that. Just remember that the typical skin cycle is about 28 days so the stuff you’re using on your skin now could give you a ton of zits weeks later. I used to use jojoba oil on my face and omg, you would not believe how long my skin took to get rid of that crap! I had horrible breakouts from it but they always happened weeks later so it took me a while to figure it out (go figure, pretty much every derm will tell you oil is not good for acne prone skin).

Anyways, all I can tell you is if youve been suffering it for ten years, there is not going to be a magic solution be it natural or chemical for you. You are acne prone and this is not likely to change unless you find the right combo of birth control and/or spiro (of course hormones have their own drawbacks).

It’s good that you’re making an effort to be healthy; that always helps. I find that eating an anti-inflammatory diet and avoiding things like dairy, soy, caffiene, and too much sugar helps tremendously but lol, I can only take so much.

You can also try using green tea as a toner/treatment (i like it better than tea tree oil). It’s antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and supposedly works just as we’ll as BP to prevent acne, but you will have to brew it fresh every day because it oxidizes fast. It will also calm down your skin and make it less red. Whatever you do, don’t fall into the trap of using natural oils on your face in an attempt to treat your acne because that is a recipe for disaster for most acne prone people.

*also, if you don’t know about tea tree oil look it up because its supposedly as good for acne as BP too (its antibacterial) and you might prefer it to green tea, but remember to dilute it because its pretty strong and drying.

Michael asks…

How do I get rid of dry skin on my face?

I started using Epiduo about 2-3 months ago, and it has successfully made my face dry and flaky. Although it hasn’t really worked too well on my acne, which isn’t really that bad. I put Johnson & Johnson lotion on my face every morning before I apply my make up, but it is still very flaky and dry looking. How can I fix this? Any help is great, and thank you for your help.

Some of the many acne treatments available work better than others. Not all treatments will work for everyone because there are various factors that can cause acne. You should see a dermatologist for severe cases of acne. However, very often natural remedies such as the ones we’ll be exploring in this answer can be just as helpful.

Acne can be cleared up by drinking fresh wheatgrass juice which some nutritionists consider a super food. Try your local health food stores, juice bars, or even online to find this product.

Drinking the fresh juice is best even though you can get it as a supplement. Some have found it best to get a wheatgrass juicer and make it at home. Luckily you can enjoy the benefits from only an ounce a day as this can be expensive. Wheatgrass is a powerful raw food that cleans out your body, so while you’re taking it you should also avoid junk foods such as sugar as much as possible. Because of its many other health benefits, you may want to consider continuing to take wheatgrass juice even after your acne clears. Changing your diet is one way that you might be able to reduce your adult acne naturally. Soda, carbs, bad fats, junk food and other things that are refined or processed can contribute to adult acne so they are best avoided. Caffeine and alcohol also need to be avoided because they can make your acne worse. Some people have sensitivity to dairy and meat but instead of leaving these out of your diet, try changing to organic varieties. One great and natural acne cure is regular exercise because it can help you clean out your system. As you improve your diet and exercise routine make sure that you stay well hydrated by drinking lots of water. Drinking a lot of water is a good way to help you detoxify your system which is a good natural cure for acne.

Many people with acne pick or squeeze their pimples. Picking at pimples causes the sebum to spread, creating more infections and causing the sebum to spread. Picking at them is how you go from having one or two pimples to a whole bunch of them. So it’s important to avoid touching your pimples in addition to your other acne treatments. Avoiding touching your pimples will help you get rid of your acne faster.

In summary, while acne can be distressing, don’t let it get you too upset. Acne can be treated and many people, including adults, have to deal with it at some point. Try these acne treatments to see if they will help you overcome this skin problem.
