How to treat and pevent pimples and acne naturally

Pimples are a thing of life everybody gets them at some point in their life whether it be puberty , severe acne , adult acne or just the occasional zit .

nobody likes pimples they hurt they look ugly and they tend to pop up at the most inconvinient times.

so here are some tips to help you get rid of them and prevent further breakouts

Cleansing – cleansing is a big role in fighting off pimples . But most people do it wrong

most cleansers designed for acne are too harsh. Believe it or not over cleansing can cause further break out as you are drying out your skin which causes further irritation and causes extra sebum production which can clog pores therefore creating more pimples .

when choosing a cleanser you have got to keep a few things in mind. you have got acne which can be pretty painful enough on its own so therefor you don’t want to be putting harsh chemicals on your face which will cause more inflammation and pain , what you need is something  that is strong enough to clean your face yet gentle and you need ingredients that will help calm your skin .

so the perfect cleanser is a natural gel cleanser, cream cleansers are too gentle as they are made for dry sensitive skin, unless you find a deep cleansing cream but you could use a cream cleanser in between the gel cleanser to help nourish your skin

A great choice that i have tried and has lent a big helping hand in curing my acne  is Burt’s bees soap bark and chamomile deep cleansing cream this one i highly reccoment it has got to be the best cleanser that i have come across is it strong enough to fight off acne but strangely it did not irritate my sensitive skin

exfoliate – gently exfoliate once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells that clog pores and cause breakouts , as with the cleanser you want something natural and gentle so that you do not irritate your skin , there are tons out there just look in your natural skincare section at your local store , i do not want to sound like a Burt’s bees representative or something but honestly the best scrub i have come across is their peach and willow bark scrub it smells delicious is gentle there are a lot of nutrients packed into that tube and there is a perfect amount of scrubby bits

Toner –

Toner is an essential step in caring for your skin it closes your pores to prevent dirt and grime getting in and causing more pimples and it helps clean your skin more thoroughly. You might think your face is clean but if you swipe a cotton ball soaked in toner over your face you may be surprised by more dirt and fibers from your towel  . The best toner for pimples that i have found is witch hazel try to get a witch hazel with no or very little alcohol.  Try to avoid alcohol in your skin care as it can dry out your skin and cause irritation .

moisturizer –

Moisturizer is key to getting your skin healthy again . you should look for nourishing ingredients like shea butter, Vitamin E, cocoa butter, honey and coconut oil as they can help your skin heal and prevent acne scars .

other tips-

Hold ice on pimples that are particularly swollen and sore to bring down the swelling

Never squeeze or pick at pimples this will just spread the infection and cause scarring

Avoid touching your face to stop germs

If you use face washers and towels ensure they are clean use a clean face washer every day and ensure towels dry properly to avoid bacteria

Spot treatments can help heal a pimple quicker there are many spot treatments available in stores or a cheaper and just as good treatment would be tea tree essential oil

clay based face masks done once a week can really help clear your skin
