Acne & Acne Scars (Book and online recipes below)

Acne is an embarrassing and painful skin complaint that many people suffer from. It's not just teenagers that have to deal with acne, or people with oily skin. Hormones, environment and diet among other things can effect your skin and cause acne breakouts.

Most commercial acne products are designed with teenage or oily skin in mind and don't cater to sensitive skin or deal with acne scars which can be just as big if not a bigger issue than acne breakouts and the unsightly marks and discomfort associated with them.

This is why natural acne treatments like acne masks, washes and serums are the perfect solution for acne long term. They not only target acne bacteria with potent acne fighting active elements, but are also gentle on skin, soothing inflammation and calming redness.

How to clear up acne naturally:
There are so many natural acne ingredients you can use in homemade face masks for acne like honey and tea tree essential oil that are packed with antimicrobial and antibacterial properties (to kill acne bacteria fast).

Natural acne treatments with oils can also help to reduce or eliminate acne scars and hasten the healing process.

Many ingredients you can use are not only antibacterial but also very soothing. For example, essential oils like Neem and Lavender soothe and calm redness and irritation, while spices such as Turmeric (or herbs like basil) also calm inflammation while effectively combating acne bacteria. Other oils and ingredients gently remove acne scars leaving your skin clear. Having acne breakouts does not mean having to deal with scars and uneven skin tone, there are a whole range of easy home remedies for acne scars you can make in minutes at home to prevent damage and promote clear healthy acne free skin.

How to prevent acne: By using the right natural recipes - or knowing what to add to your skincare products you can largely prevent acne breakouts and the damage acne can do to your skin.
