It Is likely that almost everyone previously, or is currently struggling with acne, so we all know how painful and annoying it is to get rid of breakouts. Although it is most commonly experienced by people ranging from pre-teens to young adults, everybody's skin is has at least a slight chance of a periodic breakout. The skin care companies use this to their advantage, so they can overcharge you because they know how much you need your acne gone. Here are some natural ways to clear up your face that wont break the bank...
1. Getting a little steamy.
Using Steam is a great method for opening up your pores, and cleanse it of the bacteria, toxins, and oils that cause it to be clogged throughout the day. In order to do this, all you have to do is pour hot water in a big bowl, or other acceptable container. Then you comfortably rest your head in the steam for about 10 minutes, and splash your face with the warm water, and put an oil free moisturizer on your face.
2. Minty fresh.
Toothpaste is an incredible treatment for clearing your face of problematic acne, and leaving your face with a cool and refreshed feeling afterward. The only important thing is that you use white toothpaste because gel toothpaste doesn't have the same effects. All you need to do is apply the toothpaste to the problem areas, and let it set for at least 30 minutes, then rinse your face with hot water, and go to bed for best results.
3. Tea Tree Treatment.
Tea tree oil is packed full of antibacterial properties that all work amazingly for treating acne. Eliminating the bacteria from your skin can majorly reduce the chances of breaking out. To create this treatment, you simply mix a tablespoon of soothing aloe with a couple drops to tea tree oil. Apply this to your face for at least 20 minutes before washing it off, or you can dab tea tree oil on the effected areas with a cotton ball and wash after 20 minutes as well. However, you should try a different method if your skin is very sensitive.
4. Find some fresh lemons.
The high concentration of vitamin C in lemons, is responsible for its acne fighting abilities. You need to freshly squeeze the juice yourself because the pre bottled ones have potentially harmful preservatives. Additionally, the application methods are using a q-tip to put on your problem areas before bed, or you can use a tablespoon of juice mixed with a teaspoon of cinnamon before bed, and clean it off in the morning. This is also not recommended for sensitive skin.
