How to Get Rid Of Acne and Blackheads Naturally

According to the NHS, about 95% of people aged 11 to 30 are affected by acne to some extent. More often than not, it presents itself in the form of blackheads/whiteheads or pus-filled spots on the face, back, neck and chest. For some, acne can lead to pain, dryness, irritation, scarring and low self-esteem. There are, however, steps that you can take to get rid of acne and blackheads naturally:

  1. Invest in natural and organic skincare.

  2. Establish a skincare routine.

  3. Drink lots of water.

  4. Eat well.

  5. Reduce stress.

  6. Keep your face masks fresh.

Invest in Natural and Organic Skincare

Unfortunately, many of the high-street brands that we know and love sell anti-acne products that contain comedogenic elements that are worse for your skin in the long run. These elements include sulphates, perfume, propylene glycol and parabens - all the nasties you don't want near your skin. While you might recognize short term results, these ingredients encourage acne and other skin problems with prolonged use.

These brands are also often not earth-conscious or sustainable, and most use plastic packaging that pollutes our air and disrupts marine life. This is a problem for our planet and for us, the conscious consumer, who are seeking eco-friendly skincare alternatives and sustainable living products.

For these reasons, it is best to invest in natural and organic skincare that is transparent about what it includes. For us, this means just one organic essential oil per product, alongside a selected range of natural ingredients - no nasties in sight.
