There have been many suggestions as to which natural acne remedies actually work. Some of these suggested treatments have little or no chance of working, whereas others sound plausible. Some suggest eating certain foods and avoiding others to improve the skin, and although this may seem far-fetched there is some truth in it.
Certain people have suggested that avoiding food first thing in the morning and drinking just water instead can help improve the skin.
It may work for some people, but this is more likely to be due to the extra water intake than the avoidance of food. Most nutritionists these days recommend eating breakfast to give energy and avoid binge eating later in the day.
A lot of people concentrate more on the treatment of their acne than on preventing it in the first place. Skin care is important if you want the best chance of beating acne.
These days a lot of skin care information is to be found on the internet if you need advice on what you need to do. Some basic skin care tips are here:
Be cautious about the products which you are using to cleanse the skin. The right product should remove the dirt from the skin and also remove any oiliness. A mild and gentle cleanser is required, one which doesn’t cause dryness. The cleansing should be done twice per day.
Dry skin might seem like a good thing to avoid acne, but excessively dry skin can cause problems.
You should use only warm water not hot water when you are washing the affected areas. Hot water may cause aggravation of the skin problems. If using astringent, limit its use to the oiliest areas.
If you are currently using topical acne treatments, it is best to apply the treatment after the skin cleansing as it should work better then.
Certain people’s acne is more difficult to treat successfully than other people’s. If you are unsure which treatment to use, or your current treatment isn’t working, you need to see a dermatologist.
