If we had to simplify our skin structure to understand it better, it would be something like this : skin cells and hair follicles. The follicles are home to sebaceous glands producing a rich oily substance called sebum. This substance overflows to the surface to keep it moisturized. While this natural mechanism is needed for our general skin wellbeing, disfunction happens most times than not. And one of the most dreaded skin disfunction is what is commonly known as Acne or pimples outbursts. You are lucky enough when this happens on normal days. But stress helping, such cuties often sneak their ugly heads around a friend’s wedding date, a job interview or a first date. Most of us common mortals would then engage in a frenzy bombardment on the poor bulge making things worse.
Your first instinct when you start feeling that well known acne sore on your face is to dab it with a hot cotton pad. Your skin can also benefit from a warm facial steam bath that will open up all obstructed pores for the occasion. As the pimple will develop, your hands will be so tempted to squeeze and poke. Resist the urge to triturate with all your willpower if you don't want to worsen the sneaky guest.
Well now let’s assume you haven’t read this advice before and your hands went popping that heinous pimple. Here are some natural yet powerful products that could help you deal properly with the aftermath of the battle.
Your first best ally would be the famous Argan oil. The liquid in its pure form gives the best results in both preventing and treating Acne. This golden oil contains polyphenols, natural antioxidants, oleic acids, and linoleic acids among others. It has been used since ages for all types of skin problems, but has the best effects in treating the scars that are resulting from acne. Yet only the most persevering of us will be rewarded with Argan oil benefits on Acne scars. One can also look for products with ingredients such as tea tree oil. Such skin friendly products are well known for their powerful antiseptic properties. You can also add few drops of tea tree oil to the skin bath to have best of both.
Another natural ingredient that proved itself immensely with acne is Aloe Vera. Either try products containing aloe vera ingredients for your whole skin or simply apply an aloe vera gel on the crime scene. Aloe vera is believed to have around 75 healing compounds that can only benefit you when the redness is there to stay.
Finally you will never abuse enough of masks containing honey as it is a good antiseptic but still very gentle on any skin type. Now and for very bad acne cases, while you would definitely benefit from the previous natural ingredients, still the best advice would be to run quickly to your nearest dermatologist.
