Top Ways to Clear Acne

While you may find tons of different creams and cosmetic products that claim to help acne disappear within a few weeks, not all of them will work. It’s not surprising considering that a problem that has its roots inside the body is being treated by using topical creams. There are several reasons for those frequent acne flare-ups, but here are some simple tips and tricks that may help you reduce the appearance of acne that can embarrass you so much at social gatherings.

Spiking up your water intake is one of the best natural ways to both prevent and tackle acne. Water, in general, tends to detoxify the body and helps to get rid of all toxins that may have been causing the acne. Make sure you get your 7-8 glasses of water a day, or a similar quantity of fluid in different forms such as juices and soups.

Known for their beta carotene and fiber content, carrots make for a great ‘must-add to the diet’ for all those suffering from acne outbreaks. Carrots are also rich in vitamin A, which helps keep the outer protective layer of the skin healthy, and reduces the production of sebum, which thereby helps prevent acne eruption. Best of all, carrots are extremely versatile. You can add them to almost any food preparation.

Accumulation of dirt and grime in the pores of the skin also causes acne and pimples, which is why exfoliation is another skin routine that is necessary, especially if you’re someone who stays outdoors for a long time during the day. Using a natural, gentle exfoliant will promote circulation of blood to the skin and maintain its health, and also help remove dead skin cells, dirt and grime that may have clogged the pores.
