Many people struggle with adult acne...even after years of having perfectly clear skin. You know what we’re talking about...not wanting to go out in public because you HATE the way your skin looks? Seriously, aren’t we too old for this? If you’re ready to end your relationship with acne, here are three steps we swear by to naturally clear up your skin.
1. Treat it naturally on the inside
It’s always a good idea to start by treating the issue naturally from the inside. Diet can make a difference. The goal is to minimize sugar, processed foods and eat plenty of colorful veggies. The right diet will help eliminate inflammation of the skin from the inside. Also consider trying a dose of Vitamin D...people with acne are typically deficient in Vitamin D. You can take a supplement, but a little bit of sunshine each day is even better.
2. Treat it naturally outside
Your blemishes don’t stand a chance when using natural products such as tea tree oil, eucalyptus, mistletoe and clary sage. Full of purifying, and antibacterial properties, these products are focused on cleaning, moisturizing and preventing breakouts.
3. Hidden dirt on your face
Some acne is caused by clogged pores...so in this case washing your face is not enough. Clogged pores cause blackheads and whiteheads, but fortunately with a good cleanser and exfoliant will help. There’s also an underlying cause you probably haven’t considered. Your pillowcase! Every night you put your face down on a pillow that absorbs dirt, oils, dead skin cells...yuck! Consider having extra sets of sheets and change your pillowcases twice a week, or try these new pillow cases that will give your skin eight nights of perfectly clean sleep.
