Updated on March 6, 2015

As teenagers you were plagued with ailments but nothing made you as self-conscious as acne. Even into adulthood you are sometimes afflicted with this very common issue. More than 90% of the world’s population has experience acne at some point in time or the other; some with more severity than others. In dealing with acne there is no golden rule. All types of situations can cause you to develop acne; from adolescence to stress. However you don’t have to let acne win. Follow these simple tips and see your way to healthier more radiant skin.

Wash daily with a PH balanced cleansing wash. Cleansing your face daily before bedtime gets rid of debris and other impurities that get onto the skin during the day. A PH balanced wash with some warm water will help to unclog your pores.

Remove makeup before bed: Use a non-alcoholic base makeup remover to thoroughly cleanse skin before bedtime. Makeup contains oils that can clog your pours thus causing build-up of impurities which can develop into acne.

Drink lots of water to cleanse your body: Water purifies the system, balances the PH in the body and flushes toxins from the body; all this promotes a healthy body therefore promoting healthy skin as well.

Try the juice of a lemon or lime: Cut a lemon or lime to expose the pith gently rubs the open-side of the lemon onto the acne. Lemons and limes contain citric acid, which attacks the bacteria that cause acne. Be sure to wash off the lemon/lime juice with warm water to prevent the continued citrus action. Use a strong sunblock lotion if you plan to venture into the sun after your citrus treatment.

Try using tea tree oil: Tea tree oil is renowned for its anti-fungal and antibacterial properties which make it great for the treatment of mild to moderate acne. Tea tree oil reduces lesions as well as fights acne with minimal side effects.

Crush up some aspirin and use it as a paste: Crush up a few aspirins depending on the amount of coverage you desire and mix it with just enough water to form a paste. Use a Q-Tip to apply this paste to individual pimples and leave to dry. The Aspirin contains salicylic acid, which is also found in most topical acne treatments use to eradicate acne-causing bacteria. Salicylic acid dries out pimples while simultaneously fighting acne causing bacteria.
