Isn’t it time we kick back the acne out o our beautiful skin? ah ah what is it sef? Acne has dealt with us so much for centuries and decades, and as the David Beckham “Kick Malaria” Advert goes, we hope to bring you ways and means to successfully kick this issue out of our skin, it gets so bad sometimes that one’s face looks like Footballs lined up for the Eyimba football club season
Here are some easy things you can start doing today to help you heal your acne. You should notice a difference in about 4 weeks. Stick with whichever works best for you. When it comes to managing acne, experience is a powerful teacher.
Remedy 1: Vitamin E
Try applying vitamin E to the scarred area three to four times daily to help reduce its visibility. If you keep at it, you should see some results after one to two weeks. It takes a long time before you get really noticeable effects. You can pierce you normal vitamin E Capsule and apply on affected area
Remedy 2: Tomato
Placing slices of tomato on your skin can act as an astringent to break up oil, lift away dead skin and help prevent acne. The pulp of the tomato has the strongest astringent properties.
Remedy 3: Toothpaste
Apply a dab of toothpaste on your pimple before bed. This is useful for new pimples, especially big ones. Whenever I spot a new pimple, I try this. Usually the next morning, it will be dried out enough to pop on its own.
Remedy 4: Ginger
After cleaning your skin, cut a few slices of fresh ginger and apply to the affected area for 20 minutes. You’d better do this laying down, otherwise the ginger may fall off. It might burn a little, but probably not too much. The ginger may leave behind a bit of redness after you remove it, but don’t be too worried. Just wipe off and have a good rest. In the morning, the scar should become smooth, and will hopefully fade completely within two weeks (please i you skin is sensitive skip this remedy)
Remedy 5: Lemons
Lemon juice is effective in lightening the dark spots left by acne and pimples.
First, cleanse the scarred area with water. Soak up a teaspoon of lemon juice with a cotton ball and smooth it over the marks. Leave the juice in place for ten minutes, then rinse.
Be careful how often you use lemon juice: it can have the side effect of making your skin light sensitive. Make sure to cover treated areas with sunscreen before going outdoors.(please i you skin is sensitive skip this remedy)
Remedy 6: Apply a honey mask to your face once or twice a week
Honey has antibacterial properties so it is great for disinfecting and healing minor blemishes. It is also gentle on sensitive skin.
Remedy 7: Keep your hair off your face
If you have long hair or bangs, pull your hair off your face. Your hair contains oils as well, and will contribute to your breakouts. You’ll also want to wash your hair everyday and after workouts
Remedy 8: Eat carrots for beta-carotene (Vitamin A)
Vitamin A strengthens the protective tissue of the skin and actually prevents acne. It helps reduce sebum production. This vitamin is essential for the maintenance and repair of the tissue which the skin and mucous membranes are made of. Vitamin A is also a powerful antioxidant needed to rid your body of toxins. Did you know that a deficiency in vitamin A can actually cause acne?
Do not pick or squeeze your blackheads and pimples
As tempting as it may be, do not squeeze, scratch, rub or touch your pimples and blackheads. Do any of these actions, actually increases the sebum production. Plus, when you squeeze, you are actually rupturing the membranes below your skin, causing infection and sebum to spread underneath your skin. The result is more pimples. Abeg o! Resist it and send it back to sender
Wash your pillow case every other day
Your face lays on your pillow case every day. Your pillow case absorbs the oils from your skin and reapplies the dirt and oil. Thus causing breakouts. Keep your sheets and pillow cases clean.
