If you have found this article because you want to find out how to stop pimples from appearing and spoiling your complexion, read on! On this page you will find some hints and tips on how to get rid of pimples naturally and stop them from coming back.
The first thing to consider when you are thinking about how to prevent pimples from appearing, is not what you put on your face, it is what you put into your mouth!
- a)Firstly, think about your diet try to cut down on refined and sugary foods as these can sometimes be responsible for making our bodies produce excessive oil (sebum) which in turn will lead to skin problems including pimples and blackheads.
- b)Secondly, think about how much water you drink in a day. I am not talking here about caffeinated or fizzy drinks which should be kept to a minimum in a healthy diet, I am talking about good old H2O! Keeping your body properly hydrated is very important if you want to have healthy skin.
- c)Thirdly, think about taking some dietary supplements to help your skin – even if your diet is really good, you may from time to time need some supplementation and vitamins A and E will help your skin as will evening primrose oil capsules and garlic tablets or capsules.
How to avoid pimples: -could using natural antibacterial products really help?
This property is important in getting rid of spots and stopping more pimples from developing because products with an antibacterial effect will cut down on existing inflammation and prevent future infection. The following quote shows how important Tea Tree Oil (TTO) is and you can read the full article at Clinical Microbiological Reviews web site if you would like to use the link provided.
“One of the first rigorous clinical studies assessed the efficacy of 5% TTO in the treatment of acne by comparing it to 5% benzoyl peroxide (BP) (14). The study found that both treatments reduced the numbers of inflamed lesions, although BP performed significantly better than TTO. The BP group showed significantly less oiliness than the TTO group, whereas the TTO group showed significantly less scaling, pruritis, and dryness. Significantly fewer overall side effects were reported by the TTO group (27 of 61 patients) than by the BP group (50 of 63 patients).”
Other natural remedies you could try for their antibacterial properties are aloe vera juice or gel applied to the skin and applying honey directly to your skin – a bit sticky and messy, but wonderfully healing!
