    What are some great home remedies for your skin?

    I have always had okay/bad skin. I want clear skin but I am trying to be all natural. Anything will help?

    Drinking as much as water, avoiding oily foods and applying aloe vera gel on your skin, before having a face wash, will give better results, as it was a natural treatment for bad skin.

    Great skin in accomplished from within. It is the outward showing of what is going on inside the body. Feed your skin from within. Among the fastest ways? Probiotics. Orally, taking a probiotic helps to balance the body, my preferred recommendation is probiotic pearls. They withstand stomach acid, and get to the intestines where it is needed.
    Drink water, 1/2 ounce per pound of body weight. Hydrates the skin, and rids the body of toxins.
    Topically, a mask made of a base of oatmeal. 3 tablespoons oats, 2 teaspoons of water. For dry skin 1 tsp. milk, for oily 1 tsp lemon juice. Mix until a paste is formed. Let dry, wipe off with warm rag. Gently.
    Eat plain yogurt, and apply as a mask as well. Other recommendations for skin? Co q 10, fish oil, or a good fat, taken orally, such as coconut oil. For dry skin, apply topically.
    If your hormones are out of control, it will show up on the skin. Ways to balance are good fats already mentioned. Flax seed is the best for unbalanced hormones. Pms, menopause, or peri, makes no difference. A good pure formula, USP standard prep is best, up to 1000mg.
    Look at your makeup, read labels, are there synthetic oils in the prep? Can clog pores, and just make matters worse. Mary Kay has a base of coconut oil, and a good choice.
    For acne a breakouts, lemon juice applied to the break out, or tea tree oil. Both are very drying, apply to blemish only. Tea tree oil is a natural anti biotic. Acne is a bacteria.
    Add humidity to the air. A humidifier goes a long way in conditions of the skin. At about 30%, is the usual setting to achieve, you don't want it raining in the living room. Adjust according to your own specifications.
    I hope the recommendations help.
