Acne is a very delicate problem. Paradoxically, their appearance depends purely on the physiological problems of the body, and the perception of a person with strong eruptions worsens to those around him as if it were his fault.
Very few people who in the transitional age did not encounter acne. When I was 13, I read it in a book: acne appears at 12-13 years old and disappears after 20 years.
Then I just could not believe it! To suffer for seven years! But as time went on, skin problems became less, although I can not say that everything was fine. Actual this question remained until 24 years.
As a teenager, I was saved from acne as follows.
In the summer she collected flowers of yarrow, put them in a glass jar and poured it with alcohol or vodka. Ten days later, the tincture was ready, and she could wipe her face. I did it once a day, in the evening.
Especially yarrow helped from sore, big acne. She applied a moistened sponge and held for 10-15 minutes. The next morning there was an improvement.
This tincture has one minus – it is alcoholic and very dry skin. The older I got, the more urgent was the problem of dry skin. I continued to use yarrow, but not more than once a week.
Recipe for salvation from professionals
Then I went to the shop. She chose her choice on a cleansing product for problem skin of the Mary Kay brand and face cream of the same brand.
I just did everything contrary to the instructions. Means for washing used once a day instead of the recommended two, and the cream did not buy for dry skin, but for those prone to fat. This cream is more suitable, although by all indications the skin is dry.
Perhaps, from these means, and maybe because the problem age has passed, the face has become almost clear.
What to advise?
Now my goddaughter is growing up, and she, too, is faced with the problem of getting rid of acne. What does she advise? Of course, my experience is good, but this is not the only way out.
Almost every brand has a line for the care of young problem skin. Choose for every taste and wallet.
And you can turn to folk remedies. My school girlfriend with very oily skin was saved by cucumber lotion, which she made herself. Rubbed fresh cucumber and insisted on alcohol. Rubbed her face twice a day.
Another friend bought regular salicylic acid and applied it to inflamed areas. I praised very much, but I did not dare to try. Scarecrow word acid.
Although this problem is over, it is still interesting, only I suffered for so long?
