By   March 24, 2014

            The only thing that is worse than getting acne and unsightly pimples as a kid, is getting them when you’re a full-grown adult. Unfortunately, this does occur for many people. If you are one of these people then you understand that acne treatments can be expensive. Sometimes you spend your hard-earned money only to find out that the treatments do not work at all. As an alternative, some acne sufferers are turning to holistic or Natural concept. They can be far less expensive, and they do not require a prescription.

            Dermatologists agree that vitamin A is an excellent alternative to synthetic medications. It contains healing properties which allow your skin to heal on its own. Have you ever seen someone who has severe scars across his or her face? Acne scare often look like indentations of swirl marks. Sometimes they are so severe that the effected area almost looks like it has been burned or melted. This is where vitamin A becomes a factor. It has skin healing properties which work against the scarring effects of deep acne.

            The truth is that some people simply need to change some of their bad habits in order to get rid of acne. You might be surprised at what a simple change can do to make your skin look and feel much better. Consider using an exfoliant. Gentle exfoliant facial washes are excellent choices for people who have mild acne. These washes remove dirt and oil from your pores. It is this build-up of oil and dirt that causes the red irritation and swelling to occur. Once the swelling begins it can turn into a painful pimple. Eliminate this pimple and others by washing your face regularly.

            Some people believe that pimples are caused by excess oil, but the reality is that it is the combination of dirt and oil that produces acne. Another natural way to keep acne from occurring is to wash your hands. As an experiment, make a note of how many times you touch your face in a given day. Simple scratches, rubs or yawns give people reasons to touch their faces. Most people do not even realize it when they do touch their skin. Washing your hands regularly not only keeps germs out of your body, but it keeps dirt away from the skin o your face too.

            Leading dermatologists agree that it is not always a good idea to rush out to buy the latest, strongest, acne cream or solution. These solutions react differently for different people. Common actions often lead to better looking skin. When you use a natural remedy you are providing your body with the help that it needs without effecting other organs. Consult your dermatologist on other natural ways that you can use to get rid of unsightly acne.
