Acne Treatment - the way nature Intended
Strive for progress, not perfection
Before you think something is wrong with you or your acne-covered child, know this: acne is normal.
A word to the wise: never pop or squeeze acne. In addition to traumatizing your teenager, if you back them up against the wall, you’re almost certainly guaranteeing acne scars long into the future. These are harder to heal than the acne itself.
If we know anything at Dhana, we know acne from a lifetime of using our own skin as a test case for natural treatment options.
Natural Acne Treatments that Work with Your Skin:
- High in zinc, calcium, copper and potassium as well as anti-inflammatory eugenol, rooibos tea is a powerhouse acne fighter. Use the tea, cooled, as a face toner to soothe irritated skin
- Use Rooibos without the fuss, featured in Dhana Self-Care’s Against-the-Grain Shaving & Acne Bar for a gentle cleanse that’s rich in eugenol and ricinoleic acid that leaves a moisturized squeaky-clean feeling.
- The sticky ricinoelic acid found in Castor Oil naturally combats the over-production of sebum (skin-oils). When created in excess, these block pores, create inflammation and cause acne. Spot treat your acne with oil, then washing clean with a gentle face soap.
- Do you have acne scars? Spot treat these with deep-healing lavender essential oil (our or diluted) to bring moisture and nutrients back to scarred areas of your skin.
