A Natural Remedy for Acne

Happy Friday! I am thrilled to be wrapping this week up. It's been very busy for me. I can't wait to take a much needed break (as if!)

Anyway, I wanted to share some information that may be new to some, a reminder for others and that's with respect to acne. I have had seasons in my life where acne was not even a issue and other seasons where every time I turn around I had a big ole correction, bump just appear. You see pimples are teeny. A bump is just hideous and makes you want to go inside and hide under a surgical bandage until it's gone.

Well, there's hope for acne sufferers that want to clear up that icky little annoyance rather quickly. What's even better is that, it's a natural and affordable remedy. What is it you wonder? HONEY. This natural solution for acne is very effective.

Yes, pure honey (I read someone that manuka honey is best) has the ability to draw out the impurities in your skin and kill the bacterial germs that cause acne. Notice I said pure. In other words, if the jar costs $2 you probably want to go for another brand. As a matter of fact, organic is always better.

How to: After thoroughly cleansing your skin with a gentle cleanser, just apply a nice amount of honey (not dripping) on the area you want to treat. Do this twice daily (morning and night) until the acne break out is gone. Allow the morning acne treatment to sit for 15 minutes and the night treatment to sit over night.

Good Informative Post! Many people think that acne is caused by dirt or eating foods such as ice-cream or chocolate, however acne is actually caused by overactive sebaceous glands. These are glands in the body that produces sebum. The main purpose of the sebum is to make the skin and hair waterproof and to protect them from drying out.

An excess of sebum, however, can make the skin or hair oily and thus traps bacteria and clog the pores. The body's defense system will send out an army of white blood cells the to combat the bacteria. The overall process takes a few days and the final result is an acne pimple.
