Acne as an adult is no less frustrating as it was when you were a teenager, and whether you get it around the chin or all over it can be a pain to try and deal with.
The good news is that the majority of adult acne problems can be treated very naturally with some product and lifestyle changes.
Using natural products to get rid of acne can be beneficial because you know that you are doing the best for your health and typically natural options can be far less expensive than prescription remedies in the long run.
So what do you need to do?
Step 1: Balance the Oil in Your Skin.
Your first step at controlling the oil is to check the products that you are currently using. Make sure they do not contain any petroleum based ingredients as these can interfere with your skin's natural ability to breathe and get rid of excess sebum. Ingredients that you are looking to ditch are paraffin, mineral oil and isopropyl alcohol.
Using a natural clay mineral mask is a great idea to absorb excess oil and remove any toxins.
Step 2: Exfoliate
You need to get rid of any dead skin cells that are clogging your pores. Choose a beautiful natural exfoliator and apply with circular movements once a week. You should make sure to be extra gentle and not irritate your skin any further.
Step 3: Lifestyle changes
Lowering your stress levels, try yoga and meditation, can have a great health benefit of decreasing your skin's reaction to stressful situations. It has been shown that a calmer mind leads to calmer skin.
Diet also plays a role in healthy looking skin. Make sure to drink pure filtered water and eat lots of healthy fruits and vegetables to flush out any toxins in your body.
