Acne 102: Moisturizing Your Skin, Reducing Skin-Pore Clogging, and Treating Acne with Pure Water

Water Bottle Contaminants

| 2

You can make your own homemade skin moisturizers with pure essential oils such as olive oil, avocado oil, and almond oil; you can also add antioxidants such as vitamins C and E into the oil. Consult experts who have produced their own moisturizers for specific recipes and procedure for making homemade natural moisturizers. Be sure to use only the purest filtered water to make this moisturizer; you do not want to add bacteria, minerals, and other chemical pollutants in your natural moisturizer. By using the natural moisturizers instead of conventional commercial moisturizers after washing your skin with pure water, you can eliminate many unnecessary chemical irritants and possible carcinogens from your skin. Pure water is the foundation of maintaining excellent skin health.

Follow these skin-care guidelines for moisturizing your skin and reducing clogging of skin pores:

  • Wash and cleanse acne-affected skin with pure water no more than two to three times a day and after sweating. Be sure to use a gentle, non-abrasive, non-oily, and non-alcohol cleanser. To reduce skin irritation, use your fingers when applying the cleanser and washing; using a mesh sponge or washcloth will irritate the skin and may lead to breakouts. Do not scrub the skin because scrubbing only makes your acne worse.
  • Thoroughly rinse face and skin with warm water to wash away the cleanser. This will get rid of oil buildup on the surface.
  • Be sure to avoid typical acne and skin-care products such as astringents, rubbing alcohol, exfoliators, masks, toners, and tanning products. These products do not help to clear acne and can only exacerbate the skin and worsen the acne situation.
  • Avoid oil-containing hair products (e.g., oily gels, conditioners, and shampoos) which can drip oil or transfer oil onto the skin and clog pores. Clogged pores can lead to acne. So it is best to avoid oil-containing hair and facial products.
  • Avoid picking, popping, and squeezing pimples to get rid of them. You risk an infection and subsequent scarring when you transfer bacteria from your fingers and hands onto your already inflamed skin.
  • Finally, moisturize your skin with your own homemade natural moisturizer. Greasy skin isn't good for clearing acne, but neither is dry skin. Moisturizer prevents your skin from drying out.

Again, when you wash and wipe your face, use pure water and a mild, natural soap. This regimen keeps the oil and dirt out and helps prevent blockages and infections—and acne. It's just one way to be kind to the skin you're in!

The best prevention and treatment tips to free your skin of acne is free. There is no need to buy any products nor use antibiotics, pharmaceutical drugs, and topical ointments on your skin. Just exercise, change your diet, and cleanse your skin with pure water with a mild cleanser.
