Are you breaking out with severe acne and don’t know what to do? One of the most crucial times for getting acne for some reason is summer, because you sweat more and your pores are open. What can you do to help your acne? The best way to help anyone with acne is to start using an organic acne product or make your own. Yes, some of the acne products in the stores today like Acne Dry Spot, Derma Clear, and Proactiv work extremely well, but these products don’t have enough of the right essentials your skin needs in order to clear up your skin and the acne. Acne can be very annoying, painful, and really ugly to the point where, we feel so self-conscious of what our face looks like that we try to cover it up with foundation, powder, concealer, or even toothpaste thinking it will hide it.
When it comes to acne I am one of the lucky ones who only get a pimple maybe once every few months, but when I get that pimple it’s always a blind one that I can’t squeeze unless I want an infection. This normally happens when I get my period. So now I am stressed about my monthly and this darn pimple that just seems to get bigger. Through out the years I have learned some really neat tricks on getting rid of those monster pimples that may surprise a few of you.
How to help acne tip #1- If you have a blind pimple that wont come to a head please do not try to pop it. Take a hot compress place it directly on the pimple. Leave it there for 5 minutes. Then close up your pores with a cool rinse. Now mix up a tablespoon of Wine, 4 drops of lavender oil, and ½ tablespoon of green clay. The wine will help draw the redness out from the blind pimple, lavender oil will help dry up the pimple and decrease the sebum, and the green clay will tighten up your skin and close your pores. Apply this directly onto the pimple. Leave this on for 30 minutes. Rinse off with warm water to get the residue off. Then apply a cold rinse.
How to help acne tip #2- For regular pimples mix 1 tablespoon of honey, ¼ teaspoon of sugar, and 3 drops of lavender oil. The honey will fight the bacteria that’s causing the pimple, lavender will dry up the pimple, and the sugar will deep clean your skin. Mix the 3 ingredients in a small bowl. Then take a wash rag and glob some of this mixture onto it. Place this directly onto the pimple leave it on for 20 minutes. Rinse this off with warm water followed by a cool rinse.
Help to help acne tip #3- Toothpaste works great on all types of pimples/acne, but toothpaste only dries the pimple up it doesn’t deep clean the pores or tighten up the skin. If you want to cure your pimple with toothpaste add 2 drop of lavender, and ¼ teaspoon of green clay to the toothpaste mixture. Place a hot rag on top leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water followed by a cool rinse.
Other natural ways of getting rid a pimple are using a ripe tomato, lemon mixed with witch hazel, lemon juice mixed with cinnamon, crushed fresh garlic, and a ripe papaya placed directly onto the pimple.
