So, what are the best ways to clear acne in the 21st century? That’s a good question and it’s one we hear a lot of from people who have struggled with acne for many years. The fact is that while there are many different acne products on the market, and they do all offer different solutions to the acne problem, we believe that the best way to clear acne in the 21st century is to do it naturally. By natural I mean making sure your diet is as free as possible of processed foods and other unhealthy foods and cutting down on alcohol as much as possible and also ensuring that you drink plenty of water every day.
Now, there are two parts to that. The first part is just simple common sense. Make sure you wash your face twice daily with a mild non abrasive soap. Drinking water is also vital to keep your skin hydrated and cleanse itself but too much water can make the situation worse so make sure you limit your intake to no more than a litre per day and try and drink as much water as you can. Combining these simple steps with some gentle acne fighting products can make your acne disappear in a short space of time.
Another part of the solution is to try and maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. Eating lots of fresh fruit and vegetables (particularly dark leafy green ones such as kale, dandelions, cabbage and kale) will provide your body with essential vitamins and nutrients which will help your immune system fight off the bacteria and the acne causing hormones. Drinking lots of water is also important; about 8 glasses per day is recommended. Water is extremely important for your body because it helps to form strong blood cells. By drinking lots of water you help to flush your system of impurities that will keep your skin clean and clear of acne causing bacteria and toxins.
The best way to clear acne in 2111 is by using a topical gel or cream. These creams, often containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid work by killing the acne causing bacteria on the surface of your skin and also reducing the amount of sebum produced. Although they may not be very good at dealing with deeper rooted acne, they are usually the best way to clear acne in the first place. They may also be useful for helping to prevent scars from forming after acne has cleared up; although this might not apply to everyone so it’s worth checking with your doctor first if you are using any medication or cream for this purpose.
It is well known that benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid are the most effective compounds for treating acne. They attack the bacteria on the surface of your skin and destroy the microorganism that is responsible for the inflammation. They can also make your skin softer and smoother but in order to see the maximum effect you should use them on a daily basis. Benzoyl peroxide can cause skin irritation if overused, so you should try to limit its use to only affected areas of your skin such as the top of your nose and on your upper arms. If you experience any redness, swelling or itching when using these medicines, you should stop using them immediately.
The best way to clear acne in the future is by maintaining a regular face washing regime. You should always wash your face before you go to bed at night to remove any dirt that might have accumulated overnight. Your face will be especially clean and clear if you rinse it off with warm water and dry it gently with a soft towel. Don’t use a harsh soap or scrub, but find one that uses natural ingredients such as lavender or tea tree oil.
