Acne is a common and frustrating problem, and can carry over well into your adult years. These natural strategies can keep skin clear
Banish Breakouts Clear up your complexion by addressing underlying imbalances in your body.
Acne can manifest at almost any age, but it tends to be particularly troublesome during adolescence. It’s common in teens, as they experience huge shifts in hormones as they go through puberty that can take several years to even out.
Adult acne is similar, but is often influenced by anxiety. Acne may fl are up after emotional upset, especially involving intimate relationships. Hormone imbalances or shifts are also a factor. Too much testosterone may overstimulate the sebaceous glands and result in overproduction of sebum, leading to clogged pores and acne. Menopausal acne, for example, is common as testosterone rises. Here are some natural ways to help prevent and treat pesky breakouts:
TRY OIL THERAPY
Although it seems counterintuitive, oil therapy can sometimes work wonders on acne-prone skin. Try a blend of equal parts olive oil and castor oil gently dabbed and wiped over the face with a cotton ball. It’s a gentle way to clean your face and remove both dirt and makeup. Hemp seed and safflower oils are great for acne-prone skin. Tea tree oil can be a good spot treatment if diluted in carrier oils such as hemp, safflower, or olive. Neem oil can also help with acne, as a cleanser or spot treatment that won’t dry out your skin.
As stress and anxiety can encourage breakouts, try calming herbs like PASSIFLORA or Leonurus cardiaca (aka
MOTHERWORT) in tea, capsule, or tincture form. Th e latter works well for deepseated anxiety.
