According to statistics, most people that suffer from acne usually tend to go for a clinic visit initially before trying other modes of acne treatment. Though may be the best option for individuals with severe acne cases. Clinic visits are often costly and is not the most practical way to treat acne. On top of that, your doctor would often recommend prescribed acne treatments that will often aggravate your acne or worse, may cause some serious side effects that can be fatal.
Have you ever given a thought on homemade acne treatments as your primary weapon against acne? Homemade acne treatments are not only safe to use but are also cost-effective. Homemade acne treatments only cost a fraction compared to prescribed acne treatment and modern acne therapies costs. As a matter of fact, because the ingredients that are commonly used for this type of treatment are readily available in your home, it almost cost nothing at all.
Here are some of the best homemade acne treatments that you can use to treat and prevent acne:
Aloe Vera Gel- Aloe Vera is an excellent antibacterial. When you cut an aloe Vera leaf, it creates a protective sap that will cover the cut. This is the same sap that will help you clear away your blemishes effectively. Aside from its anti-bacterial properties, aloe vera gel also promotes collagen formation and effectively seals your acne lesions to prevent further infection and to heal acne scars. It can be a standalone treatment or can be used in combination with other anti-acne ingredients such as honey and lemon.
Rose Water- If you are having a hard time finding a good treatment for acne on sensitive skin, then it’s time to try the rose water acne treatment. Rose water is mild and gentle on your skin. It leaves your skin smooth and fully moisturized. It contains active chemical compounds that effectively heals your blemishes and prevent future outbreaks.
Honey and Lemon- This is my personal favorite. Honey has a sticky consistency that will help you gently peel off the dead skin cells, dirt and grime that clog your pores. Combined with lemon, honey is an excellent exfoliant. It also have antibacterial properties that directly targets the acne causing bacteria. Unlike over the counter exfoliants, lemon and honey acne mask will not sting. It is mild and is ideal for sensitive skin. Honey also helps lock in the moisture in your skin keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized.
