Blemish Busters: Kill Acne Now With Things You Already Have Around the House

Let’s be honest, everyone’s skin is different and our skin is a reflection of our internal health. Beautiful skin symbolizes proper hydration, and proper hydration allows our skin to prosper. For some of us, however, acne can prevent our skin from reaching its full potential due to occasional breakouts and chronic acne.

This not only affects the individual, but it also affects the individual’s self-esteem as well. Although acne impacts over a million Americans each year, doctors are still unable to find a way to prevent breakouts from happening.

Normally, acne is caused by bacteria, clogged pores, excessive oil, and dead skin. On the other hand, acne can also be influenced by poor dieting, smoking, medication, sleep deprivation, and stress.

With all these different possibilities, it’s no wonder why doctors haven’t found a successful treatment yet due to the fact that, acne can be caused by a variety of things.

This, unfortunately, causes people to turn to harsh chemicals and medications which can lead to more complications further down the road.

Before you consider giving up on your skin, here are five inexpensive ways to help minimize your chances of breaking out.

Hands Down

That’s right, the cheapest ways to avoid sudden breakouts is by not touching your face. According to the Huffington Post, we touch our face anywhere from 2,000-3,000 times a day without even realizing it.

With that being said, something as simple as turning a doorknob, typing on a computer, or talking on our phone can cause us to come in contact with millions of germs.

Which means if you are prone to acne, your skin is at risk from exposure to bacteria, dirt, and even viruses. So next time you decide to touch your face, remember to wash.

Eat Healthy and Stay Hydrated

Have you ever heard the phrase, “You are what you eat”? Well, this phrase doesn’t necessarily apply here since acne can be caused by different variations.

However, in order to reduce acne breakouts, it’s important to eat food that will help enhance your clear skin, meaning stay away from junk food and eat more green.

Researchers also recommended that you drink a lot of water. Drinking water is a good way to flush out those internal toxins and most importantly, it allows your skin to stay hydrated.

Although there’s no evidence that says toxins cause breakouts, research workers at Vanderbilt University discovered that the more water we drink, the more our blood flow increases.

In other words, water increases blood pressure, raises alertness, and energy expenditure which gives our body the ability to fight off infections.

Cleanse Your Face Twice A Day

Throughout the course of the day, our face is exposed to makeup, dust, sweat, and lots of dirt. Which in the end, can result in clogged-pores.

This can also lead to blackheads and unwanted pimples. To help prevent that from happening, it’s important to wash your face twice a day: when you wake up and before you go to bed at night.

Or in some cases, whenever you feel it’s necessary to do so. For example, if you participate in active events that make your body sweat, you may need to wash your face more frequently than others to avoid clogged-pores.

But as long as you cleanse your face twice a day, your skin won’t disappoint you.

At Home Remedies For Acne

The one thing a lot of companies don’t tell you about their skin care products is that, it doesn’t work for everyone. Skin, like personalities, are all distinctive. To put it differently, our skin is a unique feature that can’t always be fixed by store bought products that promise overnight changes.

With this in mind, if your skin is anything like mine, sometimes you have to take a slower approach and treat your acne on a case-by-case basis.
If you’re up for the challenge, here are a few at home remedies to try:
