A homemade face wash for acne can help reduce irritation, especially if you're taking acne medication or using topical treatment.
Sometimes they can leave your complexion dried, flaky, or irritated. Using a soothing homemade face wash a few times a week can make a big difference in how you skin looks and feels.
Also, it's a good idea to take a break from chemicals and additives.
The Oatmeal Scrub
Here is a great homemade facial cleanser for acne healing. It can help reduce irritation and redness:
This wash is perfect for dry or oily skin. If you want, you can leave it on for a few minutes for a soothing facial mask.
The Strawberry Facial
If your complexion is a little on the oily side, try substituting the oatmeal for strawberries. Strawberries can help brighten a complexion.
Here is how to make it:
The Pineapple Scrub
If you're looking for a stronger homemade cleanser try a pineapple scrub. Pineapple contains lots of great things for your complexion. It has natural anti-inflammatory properties – so it can really calm irritated skin.
It also contains bromelain which is a special enzyme that helps dissolve dead cells – so it can help unclog pores. Again, if you have sensitive skin, please test this cleanser in a small area first.
Pineapple is a strong exfoliator so be careful if you have sensitive skin. Some people like to rinse off using a wash cloth to help further remove all the dead cells.
Try using these homemade facial cleansers once or twice week, in place of your normal wash. Remember not to wash your face too often – once or twice a day is good.
If you're interested in trying an over-the-counter acne wash make sure it's clean and free from fragrances. Also, check to see if its pH balance – which is very important for long term skin health.
In fact, some dermatologists believe that many skin problems may stem from using products that are either too acidic or too alkaline.
This imbalance slowly destroys the acid mantel (skins surface) which can lead to a number of problems like acne, eczema, and allergies.
That’s almost as gentle as a homemade face wash for acne because it's pH balanced and contains healing herbs and botanical extracts.
It's great for removing excess oil, dirt, pollution, and makeup – all without disrupting your natural skin protective oils.
