How to Cure Acne Naturally for Good

Dealing with acne is not always the easiest thing, but here’s a guide that may be able to help you.
Here’s how to get rid of your acne with just a few ingredients from your nearest super market.

People ask me all the time how I got rid of my acne and it’s about time I share my secret. Read on, to find out how to cure acne naturally. As a teenager, I didn’t have a lot of pimples, there was one here and there, but nothing to be concerned about. When I got to my mid 20s, big pimples started appearing ALL OVER my face. I became very insecure and depressed. It got to a point where I didn’t want to go outside. I was working and going to school full time. At first, I didn’t think much of it because I figured it was just stress and it’ll go away on its own. Boy, was I wrong. I did EVERYTHING on the internet. I tried spot treating, proactive, drinking tons of water, exercise to relieve my stress, masks, facials, not touching my face, cleaning my makeup brushes, not consuming a lot of sugar, washing my pillows. I did it ALL and nothing worked. I felt the need to wear makeup all the time to cover up my skin issues. I was determined to find a solution. I knew there was no way that I was going to suffer with acne for the rest of my life. I had to dig deep, and here is what I found.

One day I was browsing on YouTube page after page, I found a person who said whatever you put into your body is going to appear on your face. I’ve heard that saying before, but I was too concerned about treating the symptoms and not the actual cause. I really wish I could find her so I can give her credit, but I have searched for her numerous times and cannot seem to find her anywhere. So, it was starting to make total sense. I was eating VERY badly. With working and going to school full-time, I was always on the go. I ate so much fast food, sometimes 2-3x a day. After watching her video, I decided to change my eating habits. I detoxed for about a month and my acne was 90% gone. I made a green smoothie every morning with a weekly mask help to fade the scars. Not only did it help with my acne, but it also helped with my acid reflux. Every time my stomach feels a little acidic, I would make myself a green smoothie to neutralize my stomach. Anyone who knows me, know that I hate greens, but now I have learned to like it. I know that there are detox medications out there, but in my opinion when you make your own smoothie, you know exactly what’s going into it. You don’t have to worry about if there are any side effects.

As a makeup artist, I’d like to say the purpose of wearing makeup is to even out your skin tone, but if you already have beautiful skin, you should embrace it! Play up your eyes and lip color! Work on getting the skin you have always wanted. There are natural ingredients that you can use to correct whatever issue may have. You just have to do some research.

Thanks for reading and I hope this can help someone who is going through a similar issue.
