Acne is a chronic skin condition experienced by more than 90% of the world’s population at least once in their lives. While it is commonly caused by pollution, dirt, and stress, some acquire it because of hormonal imbalances.
Most of us think that hormonal acne only shows up during one’s teenage years, but in reality, approximately 80% of all people get it from the onset of puberty up until age 30. For some of these individuals, hormonal acne is not merely a skin disorder but a psychosocial problem that negatively impacts their self-esteem.
Dermatological issues may be hard to overcome especially when not treated properly. Lucky for you, this article will introduce you to the single, most effective method that will help you get rid of recurring acne. Read on to learn more about how you can achieve a smoother and clearer skin.
When it comes to taking care of your body, natural products are always the best remedy. They gradually improve your skin condition without exposing you to chemicals such as parabens, phthalates and sodium lauryl sulphate that are detrimental to your health.
There are certain herbs that work specifically for hormonal acne. Look for skin care products that contain the following ingredients:
Calendula is a treatment obtained from marigolds and is often extracted as oil. A less known natural medicine to serious skin conditions, it is rich in antioxidants and contains anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It speeds up the process of eliminating blemishes and acne scars, and is safe to use for all skin types – including dry and sensitive skin.
One of the most effective medicinal herbs since ancient times, chamomile is known to have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic components that aid in fading acne spots and scars and combats acne breakouts. It has been traditionally used for wound healing, deep skin cleansing, revitalising irritated skin.
Nasturtium is a natural antibiotic that treats skin infections, including acne-plagued skin. It boosts the oxygenation of skin cells and helps regulate your skin’s oil production.
With its antibacterial properties, neem is often mixed with water and applied as a skin toner that helps clear blemishes, acne, spots, scars, and pigmentation when regularly used.
Carrots are not just good for your eyes but also for your skin. Its Vitamin A component controls the overproduction of cells on your skin’s outermost layer like a natural exfoliant, clearing out acne spots.
- Anthyllis vulneraria
Translating as “wound healer” from Romanian, this medicinal plant from Europe normalises your complexion by balancing oil and water on your skin and reducing pore size. It also cleanses your skin deeply and effectively removes make-up.
- Almond Oil
Almond oil is packed with fatty acids that keep your skin moisturised throughout the day, and retinoid that protect your skin from sun damage, promote cell turnover, and prevent acne breakouts.
- Apple Blossom
The flower of the apple tree is widely used as a stress reliever, but besides that, it is also beneficial in clearing acne marks and dark spots. Moreover, it keeps the skin supple and works as a gentle toner and moisturiser.
- Witch Hazel
Using witch hazel on non-inflammatory acne such as whiteheads and blackheads is ideal for those with oily skin as it dampens out the excess oil produced by your sebaceous glands. Acting as an astringent, it stimulates your skin’s natural renewal processes.
