Treating acne skin is far easier than we are led to believe.There is no denying that it can be very painful to have acne as a teenager. A natural reaction is to reach for any product that promises relief. However, a gentler, holistic approach can offer more effective, complete and long term results that also promote health and wellbeing, and set you up for a lifetime regime that will serve you well. Large skincare companies seduce us with the idea of instant results and the myth of using a plethora of treatments and products. However, many skincare products can be expensive, full of chemicals, and fiddly to use. Instead, consider a simple, natural two-pronged approach that is (1) effective in treating the external signs of acne, and (2) promotes long term internal health. AND, you will be surprised how much easier it is on your wallet and how simple it is to apply. This two-pronged approach involves Fine Green Marine CLAY!
Stay away from the chemicals and syntheticsThe big skincare companies will have you believe that you need to spend a lot of money on a lot of fancy products to treat acne. But, this will not necessarily get you the best results. Harsh ingredients in our skincare enter our bloodstream, and make their way into our organs such as the liver and kidneys. Extensive research is warning us to be careful about what we put on our skin. We know that prolonged use leads to the accumulation of these toxins in our bodies and these are now connected to more serious health issues. Would you be happy for your teenager to be taking a teaspoon of something like benzoyl peroxide, propylene glycol, or propylparaben?
Does it make sense to apply harsh chemicals on an already-irritated skin condition?If you are concerned about positive, long-term health outcomes as well as clear skin for your teenager, then the answer is definitely NO!
So what could you do?Obviously, aside from eating healthily, it is important not to overdo the skincare. Do not apply any product at night. This is when our skin naturally renews itself and, apart from cleansing, it should be left alone. Start with using gentle and all-natural products that are preservative-free. Here are the 2 simple strategies that will make all the difference to acne, using quality fine green marine clay:- (1) Firstly, once you’ve cleansed your face with a natural, gentle and chemical-free cleanser, apply a Marine Clay Mask regularly for 2 weeks (between 3-5 times a week depending on the severity of the acne), and as you see results, scale back to twice weekly. What you will find is that:
- Clay’s drawing properties will clear the pores,
- It will gently and naturally exfoliate without harsh scratching,
- Reduce excess sebum, while
- Its anti-bacterial properties will aid healing.
- Simply take a teaspoon of Fine Green Marine Clay in a glass of water daily. This will
- eliminate toxins,
- restore essential minerals such as silica, and
- balance hormones, which is very relevant to teenagers.
