We all want to have healthy, clear skin. Nobody wants to look in the mirror and see anything close to an acne breakout. Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in the world. It affects an estimated 85% of people at some point in their lives. Here are basic ideas on home acne treatment.

Gentle Cleansing

If you are dealing with stubborn blackheads, whiteheads and pimples, it is good to try a thorough yet gentle cleansing. This can be anything from a natural home remedy or a mild face wash. From a skin treatment perspective, please understand that a number of the more popular “acne specific” skin wash products are usually on the strong side for most users. If you experience any skin irritation or burning during this home acne treatment you should stop using and consult a professional.

Exfoliate Regularly

Over washing can dry out the skin, especially when using harsh acne products. When our skin is over-dry, we create more dry skin buildup which then traps oil in skin. Then what happens? MORE ACNE! Exfoliation treatment will remove surface dry skin cells and less oil will stay trapped in the pores helping you to be blemish free! Remember this home acne treatment should be a gentle process and any exfoliating process can be taken too far.

Eat Healthy

You could be doing all the above things the right way, but still not be getting any positive results. The problem could be because you are not dealing with the root cause of the acne, which may be found inside your body. Treating acne from inside out requires you to eat healthy.

Avoid foods that cause sugar spikes. You can choose berries, clean protein or leafy green vegetables. Consume more wild fish and grass-fed meats. Look for foods rich in omega-3s such as wild-caught salmon. Zinc-rich foods are also encouraged. These foods include; pumpkin seeds, lamb, and chicken.

Avoid foods such that include gluten, wheat, sugar, hydrogenated oils, and lots of dairy. If you are sensitive to shellfish, peanuts, soy, tree nuts and gluten, avoid them as much as possible.

What Next?

Work on establishing a healthy routine that fits your skin type and stick to it. Home acne treatment that works for one person may not work for you at all, so you need to ensure you have the best routine for your type of skin. And, some patience is required, so don’t expect your acne to disappear overnight.
