Of the many skin troubles, the disturbance that makes people the most irritated is acne. Acne is a skin condition where the follicles or pores become clogged due to excessive secretion of oils from the skin’s sebaceous glands and when the dirt accumulates in the pores. Also driven by the androgen hormone, breakouts may occur suddenly. Acne is of black and whiteheads, pimples, cysts, etc. Effective treatment of acne is available, but sometimes acne can be adamant. Long-term treatment ensures a permanent cure. So, to avoid chemicals and parabens, people are making their skincare themselves. So, these are some of the acne treatments you can make yourself:
- Apple Cider Vinegar: Cider vinegar contains organic acids that kill the P.acnesbacteria, and succinic acid soothes the inflammation and prevents scarring. Lactic acid present in Cider Vinegar also enhances the appearance of dark spots. Diluted vinegar is put in cotton balls and used as a toner. One can also wash their face with diluted vinegar after cleansing. You can also store diluted vinegar in a spraying bottle and spray whenever you wash your face as a means of hydration.
- Green Tea: All of us are familiar with green tea as an incredible antioxidant. Many people take green tea to drink to promote their health. When breakouts occur, the main concern is inflammation and bacteria, and polyphenols in green tea reduce both. Green tea and the tea leaves are both usable where the tea is made to cool and use a cotton ball applied to the concerned areas, and the leaves are ground, and a paste is made out of it and combined with honey, and an ideal face mask is prepared.
- Aloe Vera: The majority of the victims of acne problems are acquainted with aloe vera. Aloe vera is filled with a clear gel that is added to almost every toiletry. Aloe vera is used to reduce inflammation and heal cuts. Aloe Vera contains salicylic acid, which is the top recommendation of dermatologists for curing breakouts. Take out the gel from the leaf and apply the gel as either a moisturizer or as a face pack for a couple of minutes. But though research has shown that aloe vera facilitates acne problems, some sensitive skin persists, and the slightest application of this gel can damage the skin to a great extent. So skin test should be done before applying it.
- Chickpea Mask: The chickpea mask, also known as uptan, is a traditional mask of the South Asian subcontinent, a blend of various lentils and turmeric, and other herbs that are all in one acne remedy. The paste is made using the powdered form of the lentils, and herbs and liquids are added according to requirements. Yogurt is added with the powder to cure dark spots, honey and rose water are added to reduce breakouts. Also, no harmful side effects are found after applying this mask.
People who have breakouts know the usage and usefulness of salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, etc. But these products sometimes show harmful side effects, and sometimes they are unaffordable. Out of 85% sufferers of breakouts, 77% are seen to be using home remedies, and gradually the popularity of these home remedies is increasing for their commitment to being safe and vegan.
