We are going to show you how to make a natural face mask to help to treat acne. However this natural acne treatment can be used on any part of the body with this condition. There are many natural ingredients which can help to treat acne. This natural acne treatment can help to gently cleanse the skin and make it smoother by getting rid of excess oil and dead skin cells.
Acne is caused by the small holes in the skin, which hair grows out, getting blocked. Sebaceous glands under the skin produce an oily substance called sebum to lubricate the hair and to stop the skin from drying out. If the body produces too much sebum it mixes with dead skin cells and blocks the hole from which the hair grows out of.
This causes the surface of the skin to bulge outwards, creating a whitehead. If the blocked follicle is open it can create a blackhead.Excess sebum production is usually down to hormones. This is why teenagers tend to get spotty during puberty, as well as women during their period or pregnancy. Besides hormones, smoking, some cosmetics and some medications can also cause acne. It can also run in families as an inherited condition.
The ingredients used in the natural acne treatment are:
Apple Cider Vinegar – Malic acid and lactic acid found in the vinegar help to soften and exfoliate the skin. This can reduce red marks, and treat acne on both your face and body. It is effective in unblocking pores so that the skin can breathe properly.
Honey – is effective in curing acne by cleansing the pores and not letting microbes grow, due to its antimicrobial properties. Additionally, the waxy part of honey helps to keep the skin soft, smooth and glowing.
Avocado – Is a great source of vitamin E. Studies have found that vitamin E is beneficial for skin health. It’s a potent antioxidant that protects the skin from free radical damage caused by poor diet and environmental toxins.
Tea tree oil – This essential oil made from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia has powerful antibacterial, anti fungal and antiviral properties. When applied to the skin, it has the ability to destroy the bacteria involved in the development of acne.
