How to Care for Acne Prone Skin

Acne is a common, chronic disease that affects 90 percent of teens and 50-70 percent of adult women. Acne develops when face oil mixes with bacteria trapped in a clogged pore. Acne can be cause by stress, diet and lack of sleep, and some people even get acne from their genes.

There are hundreds of over the counter products that are available to treat acne and its symptoms. Most of them are loaded with chemicals that are so harsh they just make the condition worse instead of healing it.

So what should I use to fight acne?

Instead of using harsh chemicals use a gentle natural skin care product on your skin.

For a daily cleaner and to clean your face before applying any masks you can try a gentle and nonabrasive product like Oridel Facial Cleanser with Sea Buckthorn. This Sea Bucktorn based cleanser is soft and gentle it is good enough for any skin. You can also use a mask several times a week to clear up your acne. One of the most effective acne masks you can make at home is a paste made from baking soda and water. Add water until the paste has a consistency of a thin dough. Clean the face, apply the paste, and allow this to dry. Use warm water to rinse off this mask and towel-dry the face. A honey mask will also work on acne. Whip together 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon olive oil, and yolk from a raw egg into a creamy mixture, place onto your face, let sit for 20 mins, wash off with warm water. Honey has antibacterial properties that helps heal minor blemishes.
