If you want to know how to treat acne at home, you need to understand how it works. Acne is a very common skin problem that can start bothering from an early age – during puberty male hormones (androgens) increase and they stimulate sebum glands. Stimulated glads start producing more sebum (skin oil).

Our known Acne conditions are caused by Acne bacteria – Propionibacterium Acnes. That bacteria feeds by sebum oil and produces some waste that can cause inflammation of a sebum gland.

Also, when sebum gets stuck under the skin surface it starts to build up. And that build-up makes a spot.

Knowing all that is not difficult to fight Acne. You just need to stabilize sebum production or kill Acne bacteria and make sure, that sebum doesn’t stick under the skin.

If you treat Acne at home, then it is good to know, that

  • Cleansing your skin at least twice a day will help to remove oil from the skin. Must remember – that only water will not be able to wash the oil, so make sure that you have a proper cleanser;
  • Dairy products stimulate oil production in the skin, so make sure that you are checking your diet;
  • Making sure that your skin is moisturized enough. Dehydrated skin is producing more oil for protection;
  • Exfoliation helps to peel off dead skin cells from the surface. Also will polish blocked pores, leaving a less suitable environment for Acne bacteria to grow;
  • Killing Acne bacteria is a good idea, and salicylic acid is a proven deadly solution for it;
  • Increase cell turnover by using retinoids;
  • Frequent change of your pillowcase and a single use of a face towel also decrease an Acne bacteria spread;
  • Black skin produces more oil naturally, so if it is you – it will take more effort to reach your goal.

All these simple things can help you to treat your skin.

And don’t forget – there are many professional treatments to help and speed up the process, meaning that advice from professionals will make your journey much faster and much easier.
