Ways To Treat Acne Effectively

Updated on August 11, 2011

I remember when I first hit puberty and started to see these small red bumps appearing all over my face. It made me feel ugly unattractive, and self-conscious about where I went and who saw me. The only thing I wanted to do when I first started to learn about acne was run into my room close the door and cry. Well you get the point it was not very much fun for me that year. I tried many different things and it only seemed to get rid of them for a little while and eventually would reappear on a different location of my body whether it was my back or thighs.

I wanted to treat it as fast as possible before school started again and just like any teenager begged my parents to buy every product under the sun. Even they did not work so going to a dermatologist who prescribed a tetracycline only worked periodically on some of it. It seemed that I would be stuck like this forever. But I found some effective treatments after trying thousands of different ways that worked well for me and would like to share them with you.

Effective Acne Treatment: Prevention

The first thing I really needed to learn besides coating my face in chemicals is that there are effective ways to prevent the onset of pimples. One effective way is using a daily facial cleanser the more natural the cleanser the better. Read the ingredients of the cleanser you are using see if there is honey in it why? Because, honey includes in it a lot of natural antioxidants and enzymes that help the onset of oils in the skin and are able to keep it moisturized.

So along with a daily face wash to help prevent the onset of acne having a good diet as well will go along way in prevention. I’m not saying you cannot enjoy the greasy burger or fries a couple times a week but make sure you also include a daily vitamin and eat lots of healthy greens. These will help regulate your skin oils as well as make you feel much better about yourself.

Effective Acne Treatment: Removing them

Of course sometimes by the time we discover we have acne it is written all over our body. So after you have the acne developed it is harder to remove them but still very much possible. Removing those bumps and bruises will take a little longer but in the long run help in the prevention of developing them further.

There are effective chemicals treatments like benzoyl on the market that will help. But if you are looking for more natural remedies without taxiing your body then try a little pure honey. As stated before it has a lot of natural chemicals that can help in the removal of acne. You can also use citric fruit that has natural acidic properties to help you remove the acne from your body. For example lemons have a natural acid in them that will help clean your pores out without drying your skin too much. Also be aware that popping your pimples can develop deep ugly scars so I recommend that you never do this but if it is essential for you to do then put a little bit of lemon juice on the spot to help prevent scarring as well.

    Great tips. I used to have acne during my high school days. I'm in my early 30's now and I haven't had acne problems since then. I remember washing my face with just water before going to bed.
