Anti Blemishes: The Bother, the Natural Remedies and the Search for More?

Everyone has it, those days when you don’t want to get out of bed because for some reason, only known to your face, spots and red patches have decided to stay over for the weekend. Noooooo you think as you inspect closer into the mirror. Why me? And today when I have to be human around other people. We all assume that once we’ve left puberty that those silly little spots will push off too. For the majority of us this is not the case.

There can be an air of disillusionment went it comes to blemish sticks, creams, oils you name it. I myself have been sold into buying an anti blemish, anti reddening cover up only to have a thick yellow substance on my face that dries out my skin (Sorry Clinique but I’m going to drop you in it for your Redness Solutions Corrector, it did not work on my skin type).

If you are a fan of the Natural approach then here are a few ideas:

*Boiling chamomile and lemon juice in water and then applying to your face for about 20 minutes can reduce the look of blemishes, especially those who suffer from acne scars. For best results apply daily.

Chamomile helps in reducing blemishes

* Mix lemon juice, rose water and honey in thirds and apply evenly to the facial area for about 15 minutes to reduce blemishes.

* Lastly place 4 almonds in water over night. In the morning, peel off the skin and grind them. Then add some honey and a few drops of lemon juice into the mixture.

Here is a look at some medicinal approaches:

Retinol – this is a form of Vitamin A and can be applied to the skin for cosmetic or medicinal reasons. Retinol is widely used in beauty products, especially in anti-wrinkle creams and anti-blemish. Retinol based products should be used at least twice a week. It’s effective ability to enhance the appearance of the skin and regenerate dying skin cells is why it has been so popular in skin products.
