7 Natural Remedies that’ll Cure Your Body Acne
Acne could quite possibly be the bane of everyone’s existence. If you get a breakout, try one of these 7 natural remedies to cure body acne.
Some of the worst acne is the one that you didn’t even know you could develop. Acne on your back, also known as “bacne,” along with breakouts on the chest and shoulders cause people everywhere to panic. The face can be an area of concern because it's the first thing people see. But companies are always making new acne remedies for your delicate face. What we see a lack of treatment is for the rest of the body. What about the rest of your skin? Well, here are seven of the best natural remedies for your body acne.
You can get activated charcoal in a bar of soap, body wash, or in a capsule. Activated charcoal is known for drawing out bacteria. It can help get your skin under control without causing damage to the rest of your body!
African black soap
If you are going to get African black soap, then make sure it is the authentic black soap. The ingredients are plant-based, and it is believed to help fight acne by balancing the oils produced in the skin. It also helps fade stretch marks which is a plus!
Tea tree oil
This natural oil helps balance the oil in the skin as well as reduce inflammation and moisturize the skin without the effects of most lotions. I would highly recommend mixing this oil with a carrier oil to minimize the potential sting. I use sweet almond oil which is great for fading scars.
Omega 3 oil
Getting the omega oils into your diet in the appropriate ratio is important for more than just the skin. It also helps your body to perform better. Specifically, omega 3 oil prevents skin inflammation from the inside out.
Aloe vera and green tea rinse
Aloe vera is naturally soothing and green tea has its beneficial properties. Take aloe vera from the plant, mix it with green tea, and apply it to the affected skin. It can reduce irritation and inflammation, respectively.
Apple cider vinegar and bentonite clay spot mask
Bentonite clay and apple cider vinegar mask are known for being the most effective way to draw out impurities in the skin. Apply the mask to the affected areas until the acne is clear. Follow up with a hypoallergenic moisturizer.
Taking zinc is believed to help get rid of acne because it has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Take it orally daily or you can buy the element over the counter!
These natural home remedies may not be what the doctor ordered, but they are very helpful in getting that “bacne” problem taken care of. They are also good alternatives for people who are concerned with the chemicals that are in products. It may take some experimenting, but you have a good chance of finding a great treatment for you without the harsh side effects of most over-the-counter or prescription drugs. Try any of these out and see how they work for you!
