Whether you choose to call acne, pimples, pimples, or blemishes, you know you are not alone. Over 80% of teens will eventually experience a burst of pimples, which means that science and reason have been working overtime to find ways to treat them as quickly as possible. We will see how to remove pimples quickly.
1. Skin cleansing
- Wash acne-affected areas at least 2 times a day. This would normally be in the morning and again at bedtime. Some good antibacterial ingredients that should be included in cleansers include tea tree oil, grapefruit seed extract and bees propolis.
- Tea tree oil is an essential oil extract and has proven to be an effective acne treatment with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. It has proven to be a valid alternative to benzoyl peroxide with fewer side effects.
- Grapefruit seed extract is considered a “natural antibiotic” or antibacterial. It has proven to be very effective in the treatment of acne vulgaris. Many natural acne treatments rely on this ingredient.
- Bee propolis is a resinous substance made by bees to keep the hive disease disease free. They use it to line the cells in the chamber where the queen lays her eggs and places them at the entrance of the hive so the bees have to cross it before entering the hive. A Russian doctor discovered his success in the fight against acne.
- Anti-inflammatory ingredients should also be included in a cleansing formula. This could include skin soothing elements like lavender, hamamelis, blue camomile, allantoin and aloe vera.
- Do not use alcohol-based cleaners. Alcohol dries the skin and will actually make your sebaceous glands produce even more sebum, which will only create a vicious circle of skin drying and more oil production.
- Do not scrub your skin too hard, excessive scrubbing will not help your acne and will eventually worsen the condition. You could spread the acne bacteria with vigorous scrubbing.
- Do not go for fancy and colorful soaps.
- Try to use soaps or facial cleansers that contain neem oil along with other antiseptic ingredients.
- You can steam at least twice a week. Steam helps to open the skin pores to get the oil out of the blocked follicle.
- If you live in a polluted city, you exfoliate more than usual. I usually recommend exfoliating 2-3 times a week.
- I’m in love with hemp seed oil as a cleanser and moisturizer. It feels good on the skin, has a comedogenic rating of 0 (so it will NOT clog your pores), is green in color, so good that it conceals any redness in your skin and consists of 57% linoleic acid. When our linoleic acid is deficient in linoleic acid, it becomes very hard and dry and easily gets stuck in the skin, causing comedonal acne. By adding linoleic acid to our skin (and to our diet), we create a smoother and smoother sebum that comes out more easily.
2. Face toners, creams and lotions
- Aloe vera gel is useful for a pimple prone skin. Aloe vera helps to reduce scar marks and gives you a pimple-free and fresh skin. There are many brand companies that make good aloe vera gel. Choose one manufactured by a reputed company.
- Several pure essential oils have proven to be very effective in the treatment of acne and can be very effective – sometimes up to 100x more concentrated than the therapeutic source from which they originate. Do not use undiluted essential oils directly on your skin. It is always recommended to seek the advice of a trained aromatherapist regarding the correct use of essential oils.
- Some good examples of essential oils for treating acne include tea tree, blue camomile, lavender, cedar, lemongrass, patchouli and myrrh.
- Pure plant extracts that have skin-soothing properties are witch hazel, aloe vera and allantoin. You want to make sure you get pure ingredients that work together to fight acne.
- Some good skin healing herbal extracts include Echinacea, Oregon Grape Root, Calendula and St. John’s Wort.
- Some are worried that a balm or ointment containing oils and butter will be too greasy for oily skin. There are actually a few oils that have been tested for oily acne prone skin. These include unrefined shea butter, apricot kernel oil, sunflower oil, jojoba oil and vitamin E oil.
- Jojoba oil is supposed to mimic the sebum that is produced by your skin, and it’s believed to be able to make your sebaceous glands produce less sebum.
- If you have a pimple-prone skin, it is always wise to consult a skin specialist before choosing cosmetic and medical products. Go for the recipe given to you and get a cream or lotion that’s perfect for your skin type.
3. Homemade face packs and natural remedies
- Ancient Egyptian history confirms the use of natural clay masks to exfoliate, remove pores, and remove impurities from the skin.
- Natural clay is gently rubbed into the skin, and as the clay dries, it tightens the skin and reduces pores, helping to remove impurities such as blackheads and whiteheads.
- The combination of clay with strong yet gentle antibacterial acne agents helps clear the follicle, kills the bacteria and heals the skin.
- Before using clay masks, occasional facial fumes may be required with light manual blackhead extraction for stubborn stains.
- Homemade face packs work wonders with its natural ingredients. Make a pack by mixing pure turmeric and milk. This pack is excellent for this purpose because turmeric has antiseptic agents that fight the bacteria that cause pimples.
- Mix dried and powdered orange peel with clear water and apply to the whole face. This is actually a great face mask for your pimple prone skin.
- Make a paste by mixing honey and cinnamon. Apply the paste to your face at night. Let it work well throughout the night and wash it off the next morning.
- Neem has natural antivirals that are great for removing acne from your skin. Make a paste with neem leaves and apply it once a week to your face to get a clear skin without pimples.
- Lemon ensures excellent treatment for your pimples affected skin. Take a cotton pad and drink it with lemon water and dab it on the affected areas.
- Wash facial packs within 15 to 20 minutes.
4. Natural treatment of acne scars
- Massaging Rosehip Seed Oil and Tamanu Oil on Acne Scars for a period of months helps to reduce acne scarring due to the trans-retinoic acid (a form of vitamin A) naturally occurring in the oils. The actual act of skin massage on the fiber of the scar also helps to soften and reduce scar tissue.
- Some of the essential oils that help with scar tissue are helichrysum, rosewood, spike lavender, galbanum and carrot seeds.
- Scar treatment options such as dermabrasion or chemical peel should be discussed with a dermatologist, while plastic surgery such as scar excision and punching should be discussed with a dermatological surgeon.
5. Healthy and stress-free lifestyle
- Drink plenty of water to moisturize your skin. This prevents the occurrence of pimples. Water increases the wound healing capacity of your body by increasing blood flow. Drink at least 7-8 glasses of water daily.
- A healthy diet is a must.
- Avoid junk food.
- Stay away from poultry products.
- Avoid foods rich in oil, butter, cheese, mayonnaise and spices.
- Eat lots of fruits and green vegetables. It helps to generate new cells.
- Green vegetable salads are good for your skin.
- Instead of oily foods, you can take dry fruits for brunch.
- If you are thinking about removing pimples, the first thing you think about is to take antibiotics and steroids. But that is indeed a wrong decision. Of course, antibiotics destroy the bad bacteria, but also the good bacteria that are essential for digestion.
- Consult a doctor and seek advice. Take the medicines that your dermatologist has prescribed for you with effective supplements.
7. A balanced diet is an important step for healthy acne free skin.
- Avoid over-processed foods high in sugar and carbohydrates. Recent studies have shown a direct link with high carbohydrate intake and acne.
- Eat plenty of fresh and raw vegetables, fruits, fiber, whole grains and proteins in the form of lean meats, soy products, seafood and beans.
- Avoid foods that seem to aggravate your acne.
8. Make sure your entire digestive system, including your gut, is optimal.
- You must have a healthy bowel movement at least once a day. This means no constipation.
- This does not mean that you take laxatives – eat enough fiber and drink enough water to naturally eliminate the toxins that build up in your body.
- Make sure you have “friendly” bacteria in your gut. If you’ve ever taken antibiotics, you’ve probably killed the friendly bacteria needed for your gut to function properly. You can replenish the “good” bacteria by taking Acidophilus or eating yoghurt with live cultures in it.
9. Dietary supplement
Note: All supplements are recommended only at the dosages recommended by the manufacturer. Warning: Taking doses greater than recommended may prove toxic.
- Vitamin A: Many conventional topical acne treatments are high in vitamin A. It only makes sense that you want your own body to produce enough vitamin A. A great way to do this is to take a beta-carotene supplement. It also helps to eat a lot of carrots or orange and yellow vegetables. Beta-carotene is the precursor that our body needs to convert to vitamin A. Moderation is important – high levels of vitamin A can be toxic.
- Zinc: Studies have shown that many adolescents with acne have zinc deficiency. In conjunction with beta-carotene, it helps in the control of inflammation and skin repair.
- GLA: Another deficiency associated with acne is essential fats. Fatty Acid Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) is a “good” fat with many health benefits. Borage seed oil is the richest source of this fatty acid. Other substitutes include linseed oil or evening primrose oil.
- Vitamin B6: Vitamin B6 deficiency has been linked to women who suffer from acne during their menstrual cycle. Other reports suggest taking a B complex supplement.
- Chromium, Vitamin E and Selenium: Various reports suggest that these supplements are also helpful in combating acne internally.
The following herbs are useful in the treatment of acne – rosehips, burdock root, fennel, pau d’arco, chamomile, dandelion root, red clover buds, chasteberry berry, red clover leaf, wild yam root, nettle leaf, licorice root, basil, green Mint, marshmallow root, dandelion leaf, linden flower, lemon balm, lavender buds, marigold petals and skullcap.
