If you suffer from sensitive skin, some homemade acne treatments might be too intense for your face and will cause inflammation, burning or even more pimples.
There are many effective natural remedies for acne such as tea tree oil or natural acne medicines with herbs, but these may also cause a skin eruption if you have sensitive skin.
How do you find an effective acne sensitive skin treatment if you suffer from both acne AND hyper-sensitive skin?
We have found that there are two important approaches to clearing acne for sensitive skin that are affordable and simple, and will help you to regain a beautiful and clear complexion.
These homemade acne treatments can be done at home, without a lot of extra expense. You will need to be consistent and to do these each and every day for a period time in order to see results.
Gently Cleanse and Detoxify
One of the most effective natural remedies for acne is to cleanse and detoxify your body. By eating healthier and eliminating toxins, dyes, preservatives and processed foods, your acne will begin to heal naturally.
Eliminate as many toxins from your diet and from your environment as you can. We are all exposed to countless environmental toxins from the air and water, from our foods and also from our skin care and personal care products.
The simplest homemade acne treatment is to drink lots and lots of pure water, which will help your body to eliminate toxins more easily.
Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, which will bring your body many important vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber which will help to create a radiant complexion.
Choose gentle hypoallergenic skin care products that are chemically safe and non-toxic. Avoid product ingredients that are known irritant or allergens. If you are highly allergic, avoid products with botanicals and essential oils.
Acne Treatments for Daily Skin Care
Pick one homemade acne treatment at a time to try. If possible, do a skin test first by applying one of these natural acne remedies on the back of your arm or behind your ear. Wait for a day to make sure you don't have any skin reactions.
Then, if your skin is not allergic to the ingredients, try out your new home acne remedy for once a day for a few days. See how it goes, and how your skin feels.
It generally takes a while to see results from an acne home remedy.
If after a few days you are not having any adverse reactions, make a commitment to try your homemade acne treatments for at least one week. You may need even longer to evaluate the results. Some people need at least three weeks to see results. Then see how your skin looks and feels!
Baking Soda Facial Mask
Mix a small amount of baking soda with water to make a paste. Apply to your face and let dry. Rinse with water. If your face is too sensitive for the whole mask, apply the mixture to individual acne sores.
Oatmeal Facial Mask
This is a gentle, nourishing and cleansing facial mask that soothes the skin and balances the complexion. It is an excellent way to calm down acne eruptions for sensitive skin.
Slice a raw, organic white potato into thin slices and apply them to your face, especially on your acne outbreaks. This helps to reduce swelling and inflammation.
Egg Yolk Facial Mask
Use only if you are not allergic to eggs! Beat one egg yolk and use a clean child's paintbrush to apply to your face. Leave on for 10 minutes.
At the end of a few weeks of using these natural homemade acne treatments, you will not only look and feel healthier, but will be well on your way to a beautiful and clear complexion!
