Get Clear Skin At Home

Whats worst than acne or a random pimple. You spend hundreds yearly buying products to help but only harm your face. See I always get random pimples above my lip around that time of the month. Its so annoying. I freak out and pick at it. I had to stop. I founds the best know home remedies for us ladies below. Check them out. 

Lemon Juice

I found out about this one from @hudabeauty on instagram. All you need is a fresh lemon. Yes lemon. Squeeze the lemon juice in your hand and apply to your face and neck. Let it stay on for 10-15 mins and then wash off. Cool right. Do this daily. The lemon has citric acid that exfoliate the skin, a huge step in treating acne.

                           Daily Detox 

You can create your own detox water at home. Easy, and cheap. You will need, 2 liters of water
(i prefer a fresh gallon from the store) 1 cucumber. 1 lemon. A handful of mint leaves. A pitcher and you got a daily detox drink to help get clear skin. See the cucumber is mostly water, but contains ascorbic acid which is good old vitamin C and caffeic acid that both help soothe the skin and irritations. The mint soothes the skin, and helps cure infections, itchy skin, and help reduce pimples. 

 Raw Honey

Honey is kind of expensive these days but I keep it for my teas. But it is a great remedy on clear skin. Use two tablespoons jojoba oil or coconut oil with two tablespoons of the honey for a mixture. Apply to your skin, let dry and rinse off. According to 

  • Acne: Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it's great for acne treatment and prevention.
  • Aging: Full of antioxidants, it is great for slowing down aging.
  • Complexion boost: It is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow.
  • Pores: Honey is clarifying because it opens up pores making them easy to unclog.

                             Baking Soda

Mixing baking soda with water or lemon juice will create a paste for a weekly skin care remedy. Baking soda exfoliates the skin that helps remove dead cells. It also balances the pH level of our skin.

              Apple Cidar Vinegar

Apple cidar helps with wrinkles, balance, and antifungal and antiviral substance that can help bacteria and pimples from forming. When you use it, make sure its a diluted mixture of 50% water and 50% apple cider vinegar and be sure because it can burn. When applying it to your skin as a facial toner once a day use a cotton ball.

What's Causing Your Acne?

Around that time of the month acne seems to pop up. But if its a constant issue it may not be just your menstrual. Did you know that what we eat, health and daily activities can be a big cause to our acne.

Let me break down to you the formal definition of acne according to livestrong.comWhen the pores are clogged, typically with dead skin cells, the skin's natural oil is trapped within the pore and that is what builds up. Bacteria results in inflammation. If the skin is blocked at the skin's surface.

Take this chart provided by women's health

                       1.  It's In Your Genes

Have you had acne since you were a kid. Nothing seems to work? It may just be in your genes. Pasted along to you from your grandparents or parents. This may be a bigger issue than at home remedies. Go see a dermatologist on better solutions.

                                   2. Stress

Stress, worries can be a major factor. When you see those pimples on your chin and jaw line just consider working on your stress. Easier said than done right. Try yoga or stress relief Techniques.

                                  3. Hot climate

For you all who live in very hot climate. See acne above your eye brows and between your eyes to your nose. This a big factor to why. According to Hot, muggy climes (summers on the East Coast, and ll year round in the South) spur the production of oil, which is a breeding ground for acne. Dry-climate dwellers (if you live in the Southwest, air sucks out moisture, causing dry cells to flake and gunk up the pore walls, so you'll see little whiteheads. Use an oil-free moisturizer,and get a humidifier.

                           4. Working Out

Working out is great but its what you do once you are finish. If you are a heavy sweater. Don't wipe your face with your hands or a towel. The oils in your pores is what causes the breakouts. And you are transferring bacteria to your face, and causing inflammation.  Change out of your gym clothes and shower right after a workout. Using a exploitation cleanser will help also.

                            5.Laundry Detergent

If you know you have sensitive skin watch out for those detergents. Also try a fragrance free detergent.

                       6. Your cell phone

Did you know that your phone carrys the most germs. Its like having a toilet to your face. Make sure you clean your phone a few times a week or daily with a alcohol wipe.The germs from your phone are probably causing the breakage on your jaw and mouth area.  If you know you run your mouth a lot cleanse after as well. 

7. You are what you eat

Dairy, drinks with caffeine, peanuts, sugar, and soy can help her rid of acne...if you have less of it. Dark leafy greens like kale, and antioxidant green tea are sad to be good for your skin. Sugar and carbs sends acne right to your chin. Add more protein to your diet.
