Combating acne with homemade remedies is becoming more and more popular these days as people begin to realize that many pharmaceutical acne medications are not as effective as promised and can sometimes have unpleasant side effects. In this article I you are going to discover the top three ways to treat acne naturally at home and learn why they are as good as they are.
Top Treatment 1 – Carrot Juice
Carrot juice is an effective way to help remedy acne at home. This is because carrots contain essential vitamins and nutrients such as beta carotene, which is vital for healthy skin function. To prepare carrot juice (this serves one person) you should take around five medium sized. Peel and wash the carrots thoroughly to remove any “rubbish” which may have built up on them over time. Next, using a home juicing machine, juice the carrots and then place the juice in the refrigerator for around 15 minutes and enjoy! You should be drinking carrot juice once every two days (once every three if you take any supplements that contain Vitamin A or Beta-Carotene)
Top Treatment 2 – Water
How much water would you drink in a day? Not enough for healthy body function is the most likely answer, but how come water is so important for the healthy functioning of the skin? The answer simple – water helps to flush out toxins from the body which would otherwise be excreted through the skin which could then lead to further acne breakouts. Water also helps to keep the skin well moisturized and therefore in better condition. Personally, I recommend drinking at least two liters of water a day, spread out over the day and not all in one big go. If possible use a water filtration device to remove any foreign particles from the water which may have a negative impact on your health.
Top Treatment 3 – Lemon Juice
Utilizing lemon juice as a topical ointment is one of the easiest, and best ways to treat acne naturally. Lemon juice is safe to be applied every day to the entire face, or to localized areas which need the most treatment. To prepare it you need to take a small lemon, remove the rind and cut the flesh into small cubes or slices. Gently massage one of the cubes/slices over the skin and then throw it away. All of the other lemon pieces can be put in the refrigerator and should keep for a few days. It is important to allow the lemon juice to soak into the skin for 10-15 minutes and then to rinse it off with some lukewarm water. Before you apply the juice you should clean your face with lukewarm water as well. If you are applying the lemon juice to single pimples (as opposed to the entire face) then you do not need to wash the juice off.
Try these top three natural acne treatments for a few weeks and you should notice the difference. As well as helping to get rid of acne these remedies will have other positive effects such as helping to improve your vision, giving you a sense of well-being and reducing feelings of sluggishness and tired. Finally, treating acne naturally costs far less than using conventional remedies which can often be rather expensive.
