There are a lot of ways to get rid of acne in a safe and natural way at home. Some treatments have worked while others need some more assistance or other products to work. The type of treatment and its success depend upon your skin type and acne type, but here are some home remedies that are likely to work for you.
Eat less oily and sweet foods. If you want to improve your acne-prone areas avoid greasy and sugar foods which make you sweat and sticky. If you are what you eat then eating oils and sweets makes your skin oily and sticky which helps bacteria and dirt to stick to pores.
Always drink plenty of water and fruit juices. It's important to drink at least 60 ounces of water each day. Some of that can be in juices which help to get rid of acne and boost your immune system to help fight further acne infections. The best acne fighting juices are orange, grapefruit, pomegranate, apple, pear, guava, and pineapple.
Wash your face daily with a mild cleansing soap. Wash at least once a day to get rid of excess oil and dirt. Make sure to pat, not rub, dry with a clean towel and wash your hands before cleaning your face.
Apply a mixture of cucumber, coriander, and mint to your acne areas. This mixture is a great all natural remedy for clearing acne. If you do get a pimple mix a small amount of honey and unsweetened yogurt to the pimple.
Treat pimples as soon as they appear. Don't wait, and don't pop them. Use a pimple cream or mix yogurt and honey and apply generously. Catching pimples as soon as they appear reduces inflammation which reduces the chance of another pimple nearby. It also prevents the pimple from popping and spreading the bacteria to other pores to cause more pimples.
Eat more fruits and vegetables in your diet and take a multi vitamin. Even if you think you are getting enough nutrition take a multivitamin. You cannot get 100% of your vitamins and minerals from eating alone, and a healthy body is the key to healthy skin. If you body is healthy inside it is better able to heal acne prone skin outside.
