Sea salt is one of the most popular home remedies for acne in existence. It’s a healthy food, in comparison to table salt. It’s a natural food, since all commercial sea salt is sourced from either today’s ocean, or layers of ancient salt beneath the seabed which dried hundreds of millions of years ago.
If your current obsession is to clear your skin naturally, without any use of chemicals or antibiotics, then you’re probably trying to moisturise your skin naturally in addition…
…and if you are, heed this message. There are few areas of skincare, whether natural or industrial, where the average consumer is more overexcited or naïve than with natural oils and creams.
It’s been said time and time again: you can only cure acne from the inside out, not the outside in.
It’s completely true, diet and lifestyle should be your main focuses for curing acne permanently.
However, what if you’re not a fanatical purist who’ll never use topical treatments as long you live? What if you don’t care about dedicating five minutes of your day to meticulously applying a cream, juice or oil? In that case, topical treatments are a great bonus weapon for giving your acne no quarter at all, as long as you use dietary strategies to wipe out at least 75%.
The world of natural acne treatments is divided into three competing factions.
First, you have the multi-billion dollar, mega-entrenched standard dermatology treatments which are supported by a ton of science but not so much by a ton of success stories. These are dished out to acne patients everywhere, and include benzoyl peroxide, Accutane, and antibiotics. The rule with this group is stay away!
