The Most Important Thing To Do To Help Sensitive Skin
If you’re looking for the best acne treatments for sensitive skin then I have a few that will bring new life to your face and show you a completely different way to look after yourself.
Most commercialized products (that one can barely pronounce) are toxic and therefore irritate your skin.
These products actually get absorbed into your body as the skin is a sponge and gradually lets in whatever is applied to it.
So I’m going to go through a few 100% natural remedies you can try that will give sensitive skin a mighty acne fighting boost!
The most important thing you can do for your skin as I have highlighted throughout this site is…
Ensuring you eat a skin nourishing diet which by the way, also happens to be an incredible way to eat for overall general health and well being.
This alone can bring you so many benefits like having less sensitive skin, needing less acne treatments, having more time to do other things as well enhanced hair, nails and sleep.
Eliminating acne causing, inflammatory foods is just as important as well because I guarantee you that if you continue eating them, they will only amplify any negative effects you may experience.
I cannot overstate this point enough!
A Smarter, Permanent Solution
Ok, once you understand and implement these dietary changes you are going to see an enormous effect on your skin and I would be extremely surprised if you are going to even need further acne treatments which by themselves, are essentially useless.
You see, what “treatments” provide is temporary relief by going after the pimples (symptoms) themselves not eliminating them at their source.
So what ends up happening is you continue to buy more product to re-apply daily as the factory inside continues churning them out.
Of course, you can keep doing this if you like but a smarter way to go about it is to just uproot the problem and complement this effort with some natural external treatments aimed at enhancing your overall skin…instead of fighting a condition.
The reason your diet is so critical is because it can essentially shut off this internal factory giving you far less breakouts, far less irritation and much more color and glow to your skin.
As long as you have this understanding, then here are my top three natural anti acne treatments for sensitive skin:
Top 3 Natural Anti Acne Treatments For Sensitive Skin
Tulsi, Honey & Black Seed Oil Mask
Have you ever heard of Tulsi?
Yes, it sounds very much like a place in Oklahoma but it’s actually one of the most powerful anti-acne herbs known to man (see right).
Also known as “holy basil”, this should be at the top of your shopping list.
Blackseed oil has a very long history in natural medicine and been studied with some stunning results.
To make this incredible healing anti-acne face mask simply mix:
- 1 teaspoon of tulsi powder
- 1 teaspoon of organic raw honey (Manuka if you can get it)
- 1 teaspoon of Blackseed oil (cold pressed)
Simply mix together and just add a little water if it’s too thick until you get the consistency you’re looking for.
Apply on your face and leave for 15 to 20 minutes.
You will very quickly start feeling a cooling sensation of all three ingredients working together.
They are all strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory compounds so when combined they give you a cool, tingling vibe.
Apply 2-3 times a week according to your skin’s needs.
Dead Sea Mud.
It has been thoroughly studied by researchers and it’s proved to be antimicrobial, a skin detoxifier and nourisher as well as giving a better overall appearance to skin.
Just be careful when you buy Dead Sea mud because some brands mix it with other compounds and cheat you.
Look for a reputable Dead Sea Mud product like this one and you will be assured you’re getting the highest quality product.
Each manufacturer will stipulate slightly different application instructions but generally speaking you gently wash your face with warm water then apply the mud evenly throughout your face and let it sit anywhere between 10 to 25 minutes until it dries then you wash it off.
You will feel it gently pulling the impurities out of your skin as it dries – both natural impurities from the body and external ones from everyday life like air pollutants, cosmetics, etc.
A good guide is once it starts drying and crumbling into small pieces when you move your face (like scrunching your nose) then it’s time to wash it off.
Avoid the areas directly underneath the eyes as the skin there is much thinner and don’t do it too often as the sucking power of the mud can dry out your skin.
After you wash it off, your face will be left feeling completely rejuvenated!
A quick handy tip: After you wash your face depending upon your acne condition, go ahead and alternate between rinsing your face with as hot water as you can tolerate and then as cold as you can tolerate between 3 to 4 times. When you do this, the extreme variances in temperature move the lymphatic system in that area and it will improve circulation to your face. As a result when you’re finished, you will feel like you just had a face tightening session at a salon.
Oats, Cinnamon & Honey Mask
For this mask, you will need:
- Tablespoon of pre soaked oats
- Teaspoon of organic, raw honey (Manuka if you can get it)
- Pinch of cinnamon
This formula is particularly gentle on all skin types.
The honey and oats provide a soft nourishing barrier while the hint of cinnamon brings a potent but not non-corrosive anti-septic.
Once again, you simply need to mix these well and if needed, add a little water for consistency if needed.
Apply to face and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes.
You can apply this mask as well as the other masks between two and three times a week.
Don’t overdo it because like I mentioned earlier once your cleaner diet starts to kick in it will shrivel up the acne from within and if you do too many external masks you could dry out your skin.
Well, there they are.
Three do it yourself treatments that are both hard on acne but gentle on your skin that you can try right away.
These of course should be used to support your clean diet, not replace it.
That way, you’re attacking acne on all fronts and giving yourself the very best chance to get rid of it for good.
Do your best to source the purest, highest quality ingredients possible as they do make a difference in the overall end result.
Finally, minimize stress as much as possible as this is a well known acne aggravator.
One way to do so is a facial massage.
It will really make you feel amazing and increase circulation to your face thereby keeping it as vibrant as possible.
If you clean up your diet, minimize stress and apply these masks 2-3 times a week, you will have outstanding, permanent results you will be proud to show off.
