How can I Banish Pimples?
It is tough to say there is a single product out there that can completely get rid of pimples because what works for one person may not work for another. When it comes down to it, getting clearer skin has little to do with following the exact routine a person follows – it is all about experimenting. Still, there is a reason why there are certain skincare routines and treatment options that work for a handful of people. It may help reduce excess oil production or it could stop unwanted bacteria in its tracks.
If traditional acne products are not working as well as you would like them to, here are a few natural remedies you could try to treat acne on your own.
1 - Clay Masks
Clay masks (bentonite, kaolin, rhassoul) are beneficial for those looking to have great skin due to its powerful absorbing powers that gets red of toxins, bacteria, sebum, blackheads, whiteheads, and dead skin. While doing this, it also delivers oxygen and circulation to the face. As it gets rid of things we do not want on our face, clays are filled with minerals that are transferred to the skin for the body to use (many of which we are deficit in).
2 - Exfoliate
Exfoliating the skin, at least weekly, will help remove debris and dead skin on the surface of your skin. The key in using the right exfoliator is choosing the correct level of abrasion based on your skin type (sensitive, normal). For example, a gentle exfoliant like oatmeal is perfect for those with delicate skin, and a mineral based exfoliate such as sea salt will yield the best results for those with normal to combination skin. Honey, coconut oil, and kefir are excellent bases to blend with the exfoliant of your choice due to their healing and bacteria fighting properties.
3 – Garlic
Garlic is nature’s incredible antibacterial that can help stop pimples when it is eaten or applied on the affected area. If you decide to use it topically, slice a portion of the clove thinly to get to the juice before placing it on the problem area. Alternatively, you may blend the garlic clove. Be sure to keep it on your skin for at least 10-30 minutes.
4- Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider may not smell appealing, but what it can do for the body, inside and out, makes up for it. You can drink it or apply it directly to the spot you wish, and be sure to dilute it with water to find the best solution that works for you. While it is a powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, apple cider is equally refreshing. Raw, unfiltered apple cider is suggested because it is filled with the most nutrients. It can be used as a spot treatment when you are breaking out or as an overall toner for the face after cleansing.
