Natural Ways To Get Rid Of Acne

3 posts in this topic

I'm 20 years old and I've had pretty normal skin most of my life, with a pimple here and there every once in a blue moon. However, back in January of 2012 but skin went on a crazy ride. I started breaking out everywhere. It was always very red, inflamed and ugly. I went to a derm and I didn't like what she put me on so I stopped. I went back to my old cleansing habits and a few months later my acne subsided. It would flare up every once in a while; but nothing like it did in January. Well this year my acne is back... Not as severe but there's always a breakout occurring. I don't want to go go a derm again because I don't listen to them anyway. I changed up my products just recently because I want to use very little chemicals on my face. I'm currently using St. Ives green tea scrub every night and Clean&Clear Continuous Control Acne Cleanser every morning. I'm tired of using all of these different products on my face and I want to go all natural. I don't use any make-up besides the occasional mascara. I just want to take care of skin without using harsh chemicals. Below is my face, close up and from afar. post-167096-0-34587100-1382385998_thumb.post-167096-0-53365000-1382386087_thumb.post-167096-0-09391800-1382386270_thumb.

To reduce the redness (which is what I see), try natural aloe vera gel, extracted straight from the plant by yourself.

Im always am interested in natural products... but i have sensitive, rosacea, allergic skin so anything in natural products irritates me sadly. I just use CeraVe and it works wonderful.
