Natural Ways to Cure Acne

Acne is caused by the clogging of hair follicles with dead skin cells and oil from the skin. It is considered a major contributor of low self-esteem in both adolescents and adults.

Acne could be a natural way of your body conveying a vital message to you. Consider the following tips on how to live an acne free life.

1. Management of stress

Your body responds to stress by directing blood and oxygen to the key organs that help in fighting stress. In this process, your skin is left dry and hence susceptible to clogged pores that may eventually lead to breakouts.

You can manage stress by exercising, since this triggers sweating of the body hence cleansing the pores.

Quality sleep also enhances metabolism rate hence leading to reduced stress and eventually zero acne skin.

2. Fasting

It sounds weird, doesn’t it? Scientific research has shown that when you fast, your body redirects the energy that would have been used in the digestion of food to other activities like healing, cleansing and restoration of your skin. This works literally for all skin types.

3. Observe your Diet

A well balanced diet is very crucial in the development and performance of your body organs and system at large.

Just like in body weight issues, you need to watch your food intake in order to ensure you have a good skin. Incorporate fruits in your diet, instead of junk foods like pizza which has a lot of oil, hence can be a nightmare to your skin.

Rich in nutrients and vitamins, fruits help in the healing, cleansing and even maintenance of the body PH, and hence, a good skin free of acne.

4. Hygiene

When oil from your body mixes with dead skin cells, your skin pores become clogged. This creates a suitable breeding ground for the bacteria, hence may lead to skin outbreaks. You can prevent these skin outbreaks by ensuring that you bathe daily, and also, wash your face at least twice a day.

Curing acne is one of the big questions that almost everyone wants an answer to. We all desire to have beautiful skin free of acne, as this helps in the enhancement of high self-esteem. To ensure acne-free skin, actively manage stress, observe your diet, maintain a high level of hygiene, and ensure that you practice healthy habits like fasting. Enjoy the beauty of a clear skin as you put these into practice.
