These acne erasing secrets I am going to reveal will help you to overcome acne. Although acne won’t kill you it is still a major annoyance. But you are not alone: with over 85% of men and women facing acne at some point. It varies a lot, affecting some worse than others.
You may be one of the people who finds their acne embarrassing. We often think acne is a problem that faces teenagers but lots of adults get it too. People go into their 30’s and 40’s with acne.
It’s not an ideal scenario at all, but the good news is that acne can be cured. Or at least made less severe. A few things you can do to clear up acne are to eat properly and follow a good skin care regime.
The following 4 acne erasing secrets may not be the usual advice, but they do work if you follow them.
Use Garlic on Your Pimples
OK so this one isn’t a tip you want to follow if you plan to go outside straight after, because of the smell. But applying garlic is a great way to reduce swelling and encourage pimples to heal.
Don’t just apply neat though. You will have to extract the garlic cloves juice first. Squeeze or use a juicer and dilute with water before applying to individual pimples.
Keep Your Pillow Case Clean
Chances are that if you have had acne for a while, you will be trying your best to keep your face and body as clean as possible. Did you know you could be negating your hard work by sleeping on a dirty pillowcase?
Bacteria breeds in the dead skin cells we can’t help but shed onto our pillow cases. So in an ideal world you would use a fresh pillowcase every night. This would mean buying 4 or 5 pillowcases so you can take turns washing and using them every night.
Stop Touching Your Face!
You may be thinking, “I don’t touch my face” but you’ll probably be wrong. Most of us transfer bacteria onto our face several times during each day. And if you are prone to acne then that bacteria can get into your pores and start breeding pimples.
Another way touching your face is bad for your skin is when you pick existing pimples. This is a prime way of causing acne scarring so you really should try not to interfere with your pimples and cysts and let them heal naturally.
If you still struggle with skin touching and picking then make sure to wash your hands with antibacterial hand wash several times a day.
Make a Natural Face Mask
You can buy literally thousands of face masks, all claiming to beat acne and give you clear skin. While it is helpful to have an anti acne skincare kit such as Clear Pores (which contains everything you need to treat and clear up stubborn acne both on your face and body), you can go down the DIY route of these acne erasing secrets.
So why not try making your own anti acne face mask?
To make it:
- Take an avocado and mix the pulp with 1 tbsp of honey.
- Blend until you have the consistency of a paste.
- Apply the paste to active acne areas.
- Let the face mask sink in for 15-20 minutes.
- Wash off with warm water.
Apply the acne clearing moisturizer from your Clear Pores kit afterwards to really penetrate your pores and clear up acne, while preventing future breakouts.
