Get a Clear Face With Topical Solutions
A clear face and healthy skin is a struggle for most people at some time in their life. Acne does not discriminate against age and many people suffer with it for a lifetime. Of course, acne seems to turn up at the most awkward times, like on your wedding day, your first date, or on the day you are giving a speech to a room full of people. Ugh! Fortunately,there are some clear face natural acne solutions that can help you control and treat your acne breakouts for a clear face everyday.
Try These Topical Solutions for a Clear Face
There are many acne solutions that you can use that come right from your pantry or natural food store. Items such as:
Apple Cider Vinegar: Apple cider vinegar can be used topically directly on a blemish and surrounding skin or all over your skin for prevention. Just use a soft cotton ball to apply it daily. Vinegar works in several different ways to fight acne:
- antiseptic that prevents bacteria growth and infection
- dissolves fatty deposits and blackheads on the skin
- restores the natural pH of the skin
- promotes circulation in the vessels that feed the skin
Tea Tree Oil: Tea Tree oil has been shown highly effective in treating acne even though it is an oil. It seems strange to treat acne with an oil as it is often caused by an over production of sebum (the skins natural oil) which then clogs the pores. Tea tree oil, however, has many beneficial properties which are helpful in achieving a clear face.
Tea Tree oil is:
- an antiseptic
- an antifungal
- an antibacterial
- an antiviral
Tea Tree oil works like and astringent, dissolving the excess oils, dirt, and grease and opening the pores of the skin. Then the antibacterial properties of the oil decreases the amount of bacteria on the skin. The result? A clear face!
Tea tree oil can be used daily to maintain healthy skin. The positive effects come with daily use over some time. Some people like to mix a few drops of oil with aloe vera gel and apply it liberally to areas of a breakout. This will decrease the inflammation associated with acne as well as treat the bacterial invasion
Chamomile: Chamomile is one of the oldest natural acne remedy use to get a clear face. It is often found in many over the counter acne treatments. Chamomile has a high anti-inflammtory action and is soothing to the skin. It also has antiseptic properties making it ideal to treat acne. Many people with rosacea or eczema use chamomile to decrease redness and inflammation, as well. You can use a damp chamomile tea bag directly on your skin or you may use chamomile extract from the health food store directly on the skin. Most people who use chamomile for acne use the extract. The extract can also be mixed with the tea tree oil that will enhance the anti-inflammatory impact. Use it daily directly on your blemishes or your entire face to keep a clear face.
Coconut Oil: Yes, another oil with antiseptic, antibacterial properties. Coconut oil also works faster than Tea Tree Oil. When choosing a coconut oil to use for your skin be sure to select a virgin coconut oil for its high quality and lack of impurities. Acne24 recommends this coconut oil treatment once or twice per week:
- Wash your face in hot water to open up your pores
- Apply the coconut oil to your entire face.
- Cover your face with a damp wash cloth to help it soak into your skin
- With a clean washcloth wipe of any excess coconut oil from your face.
Positive results are usually evident in about 2 weeks. I have personally seen the positive effects coconut oil has on the skin. If you are seeking a natural acne solution I think coconut oil is a great place to start!
