We have talked about many acne remedies and solutions to other skin problems on this site, especially natural remedies that are suitable for different types of skin. Using honey or garlic to help treat acne and the main causes of acne problems is not only effective but also very rewarding.
Aside from the acne treatment itself, most natural remedies also bring added benefits. Adding them to your beauty routine can help you fight other skin-related problems you may have, such as aging, dry skin, and irritation. What are the additional benefits you get to enjoy from natural acne remedies?
Honey is always a good ingredient to use in skin treatments. It is a natural remedy that works well for so many things, including for treating acne. You want to use organic honey, especially an unprocessed one, for the remedy to work, but other than that there are no specific requirements.
You can use honey to make a face mask and use the mixture in various treatments. Mixing honey with lemon juice or adding it to pre-made face mask paste is a great way to get started. The properties of honey will also help fight skin dryness, especially during hotter days when humidity is relatively high.
Honey is also a great moisturizer. When combined with professional anti-aging products such as Dermaset skincare, honey helps the face regain its flexibility. The combination will even help you eliminate those wrinkles around the eyes that you’ve been wanting to remove for so long.
Eggs are also great skincare ingredient that brings many added benefits. An egg white mask is a great way to deal with the aftermath of an acne problem, particularly with black spots and other issues acne leaves behind. Using egg white will also help you gain a long list of extra benefits thanks to nutrients in egg white, namely Omega-3, minerals, and vitamins.
Also, similar to honey, eggs (and egg white) are easy to use in facial and skin treatments. To create a face mask using egg white, you only need 1/2 teaspoon of milk cream and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Mix the ingredients together to form a paste and you are all set.
Carrots are also a great source of vitamin A, a vitamin that helps stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen tightens the skin without taking away its flexibility, so you get to enjoy a youthful and glowing face at the end of the treatment, all while still dealing with your acne problems using an effective natural remedy.
Both basil plants and basil essential oils have been popular ingredients in acne treatments for years. Not only is basil good as a topical treatment, helping to soothe problem areas, but it can also be made into a tea and help to fight the acne from the inside-out.
Basil helps to support healthy hormone levels and blood sugar, both of which are known to contribute towards acne. It’s recommended to drink a basil tea daily, and you can also use the tea mixture topically as well.
Several studies have found oysters to be a great remedy for acne. This is due to the zinc that they contain. Experts recommend trying to increase your zinc intake through food as opposed to supplements wherever possible, so oysters are a great choice.
In addition to zinc, oysters are also high in omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium and potassium, all of which decrease your risk of a heart attack or stroke. They’re also low in fat, low in calories and a good source of protein, helping you to feel fuller for longer. They’re ideal for those on a diet and can help combat acne at the same time!
The next time you want to use natural remedies for acne (or other skin problems) think about the potential extra benefits you also get to enjoy. Through careful planning, you can maximize these extra benefits and maintain the natural beauty and health of your skin for longer.
