Acne Skin Care Tips

The magic secret is basically to exfoliate the skin, then healing the skin. However, if you want your acne to be gone for good, you must go about this the right way:

Step 1: Prevent future acne breakouts. Once you clear those acne pimples up, you'll want to keep them way because the fewer acne blemishes you have, the fewer acne scars you'll have to take care of.

Step 2: Exfoliate every 2-3 days. Do not use harsh chemical exfoliants like salycic acid to exfoliate your skin. These formulas tend to irritate the skin causing it to look more inflammed than it normally would. I found the best method to be GENTLE manual exfoliation. The most effective and economical is with sand or cornmeal. I prefer cornmeal because it's much cleaner! Mix this with some liquid soap (like Dr. Bronner's liquid castille soap) and some water. Prepare a little a time, to make it easier to handle. Apply the scrub to your skin in a soft circular motion. Don't work on any one area too long. Remember, you do not want to irritate your skin.

Step 3: Heal the acne with pure natural vitamin E oil. Real vitamin E oil will be brownish in color, not clear/yellow. This skin friendly vitamin will do wonderful things for your appearance. The 1st application will be the one to dramatically reduce acne scar visibility. To apply, make sure skin is clean and dry. For optimal results, apply after exfoliation. Spread this thick oil on anywhere you want better looking, softer skin. Make sure to cover all acne scars completely.

Step 4: Rinse skin in the morning. Do not wash with soap or cleanser.
This regularly will definitely help your acne scars to fade faster. Skin heals itself while you're sleeping so use these techniques before bed for the best results. You're on your way to smooth & healthy skin!
