Using natural remedies for cystic acne, along with other proven home remedies, really are your best (and safest) way to rid yourself of this nasty problem. And here are some of the do's and dont's that you must follow if you want to be acne free forever!
Home Remedies for Acne #1... Don’t eat refined and processed foods or junk food:
If you suffer from cystic acne, some so called “experts”
may try to tell you that your condition is hereditary (which has never been
proven) and diet has nothing to do with it.
Well, both of those presumptions are totally false!
Diet has everything to do with cystic acne and normal
acne. Remember the Canadian Eskimos? They don’t get acne eating food from the
land. Only when they start eating the man-made garbage that we actually call
“food” do they get acne (and other health problems such as cancer and heart
disease too for that matter).
So you must eliminate all refined and processed foods and junk food from your diet if you really want to treat your cystic acne successfully (along with taking the supplements we’ve just discussed everyday of course!). Sorry to be the party pooper, but there’s no easy way around this one.
Home Remedies for Acne #2... Don’t consume sugar or any processed dairy products: (Yes I know, these are refined and processed foods too but it’s important that they be elaborated on further).
Sugar destroys the friendly bacteria in the digestive system. This is exactly what you don’t want to happen if you have cystic acne so avoid all sugar products.
Homogenised and pasteurized milk is horrible gunk that sticks to the lining of the stomach and colon. The digestive system cannot function properly in this toxic state and vital nutrients cannot be readily absorbed.
The result is digestive system failure!
As a natural remedy for acne, you must eliminate all processed milk, cheeses and creams from your diet.
Home Remedies for Acne #3... Don’t consume margarine and hydrogenated oils:
Margarine and hydrogenated oils are nasty man-made products that contain harmful trans fatty acids and free radicals. Once in the body, these fats turn rancid and eventually show up on the skin as age spots and liver spots. They can also exacerbate oily skin problems such as acne.
Home Remedies for Acne #4... Do eat more organic fruits, vegetables, whole grains, seeds and nuts:
If you’re a teenager with cystic acne then you probably aren’t going to want to hear this one. Eating plenty of fresh fruit and veggies and fermented foods, along with natural cereals, seeds and nuts every day may not be high on your list of food choices but they need to be.
Nothing beats natural foods that are free of pesticides and chemicals (and not genetically modified). If you can try and eat these foods as much as you can every day instead of processed foods or takeaway, you will not only see a positive change in your cystic acne, you will feel a thousand times healthier and be a thousand times happier!
Home Remedies for Acne #5... Do drink plenty of water and don’t drink carbonated drinks or soft drinks:
I know water is boring and soft drinks taste way better but water is a strong cleanser and detoxifier. Soft drinks, on the other hand, are full of pimple loving sugar and they rot your bones!
If you want to get rid of your cystic acne then you need to start drinking at least two litres of filtered water every day. This practice will improve your digestive system, cleanse and detox your body and improve your skins look and feel.
Home Remedies for Acne #6... Do light, moderate exercise:
Exercise is not only good for you, it makes you sweat, and sweating helps to clean out the toxins from the skin. It also helps your skin to “breathe” naturally. Find at least 30 minutes a day to get huffy and puffy and watch your skin begin to look and feel healthier within a few short weeks!
You’ve probably already heard about the most common topical treatments for acne such as toothpaste, baking soda and sea salt, lemon juice, potato juice and tea tree oil. These will also help tremendously with cystic acne but the one thing to keep in mind when it comes to your skin is this… only ever use natural products.
And we mean completely natural.
If you can’t eat it then don’t put it on your skin!
By far the best topical natural remedies for cystic acne and skin treatments are pure aloe vera juice and apple cider vinegar containing the “mother” apple (you should also drink them every day for extra benefit and goodness). Washing and cleansing your face everyday with ACV and aloe vera juice works astonishingly well and will also improve your skins texture and feel better than anything else. In fact, in regards to drinking the apple cider vinegar (we must digress a little bit here), many acne sufferers absolutely swear by this remedy. And we agree, it really is an incredibly powerful acne cure. But the main problem is many people just can't handle the taste of apple cider vinegar so most are now opting for the ACV tablets instead. These are much easier to take and still have the same effect.
Finally, to cure your acne, please resist the temptation to prick or squeeze your pimples or cysts. You will only make your condition worse and risk giving yourself permanent scaring. In addition, try not to let any stress enter your life if you possibly can. Stress not only kills, it will also exacerbate problems such as acne and make it much worse.
So use these powerful natural remedies for cystic acne and watch it disappear forever. But remember once again… you must be committed and diligent in your efforts, be patient (Rome wasn’t built in a day) and, of course, be positive!
