Teenagers turning to DIY remedies for acne and skincare

Every teen goes through blemishes and acne at least once in their teen years, and for most it is an everyday occurrence, but there are many different ways to prevent blemishes from forming.

Acne can occur from almost anything including stress all the way to genetics, and there are often multiple ways to treat different forms. Different forms of acne include whiteheads, blackheads, nodules and cysts, all of which are caused by multiple reasons, and there are both natural ways and hacks to get rid of it or reduce it in a short amount of time.

The easiest way to prevent acne is to take care of both the body and mind, meaning washing the face with mild soap or face wash regularly, eating right and drinking plenty of water. By doing these things it naturally reduces the buildup of toxins in the body and lets the body get rid of waste naturally without breaking out the skin.  

If the acne comes from another reason, such as a hormonal imbalance, it may be best to meet with a doctor and speak about the possibility of medications that would work better than a face wash and healthy living.

Many different face washes out there offer the same thing: clear skin and a happy body, but they are not for everyone and work for different body and skin types. For example, the X-Out seen on TV will not work for everyone as everyone is different and each body requires different strengths and ingredients that the skin will react and work best with.

Many people who struggle with acne often turn to “skin hacks” to treat and manage acne. Hundreds of different hacks can be found simply by typing it into Google. These hacks range from very simple tricks that require one or two ingredients to DIY face washes that can be made almost like a cake in a kitchen. Simple hacks may include placing ice, lemon, toothpaste, and even honey onto the affected blemish and holding it there for anywhere from a few seconds to overnight according to lifehack.org.

Do it yourself acnes treatments often have simple ingredients that are available in the household or at the local stores, and often can be cheaper, more effective alternatives to store bought washes and scrubs. Natural remedies are also very popular in the day and age as people now are concerned about what goes in their bodies.

A face wash that is both DIY and natural, according to stylecraze.com, has cinnamon powder, honey, turmeric, and lemon and is applied in the paste form onto the face for fifteen to twenty minutes.

There are many different ways to treat acne, and the best way to find a treatment that works is to try many different kinds. It is a good thing people have six years of teen-hood to find the perfect match.
