Introduction And Background
We all know about the pain and anguish acne can cause us. We know it can destroy our confidence, mess with our self-esteem and can even make us walk on the road to depression. Well, we can’t let that happen now, can we? Treating acne is not that hard. True, it takes time and you have to be ready to wait for a long time because the skin does become alright overnight. However, if you have enough patience in you and the perfect treatment process, there is no reason you should be scared of acne. It will disappear!
What Are Acne Nodules?
We’ve all heard about acne but exactly are acne nodules, very few people would know. Acne nodules are actually lesions on the skin; small patches affected by acne. Basically, they affect the hair follicles which tend to be stuck with bacteria and dirt and even sebum and oil. They can also go deeper than that, often destroying skin tissue. One has to be very careful with acne nodules because they can easily lead to acne scarring and are actually difficult and painful to remove. If you had to be patient to treat mild acne, you’ll have to be really patient in treating acne nodules.
How To Treat Acne Nodules?
Acne nodules can be scary but the good part is that they are treatable. Even if scarring has occurred, there is still hope left if you follow the right treatment methods. And obviously I am talking about the herbal way of treating acne nodules. It is safe, not at all costly and even nourishes the skin. There are of course numerous ways to treat acne and they all involve in preventing the acne from getting worse and to make sure acne scarring does not occur. They also lessen the inflammation and make the treatment painless. However, the herbal method is truly the best. It does not make you put chemicals on the skin but in fact the natural herbs that are found around the house or the herbal supplements you can buy from the markets. Here are a few herbal ways to treat acne nodules. All these things, of course, you need to apply on your skin either directly or by making a mask. Remember to wash your face a little while after application. And repeat the process as many times as you can in a week.
- Seabuckthorn Oil
The name would sound pretty weird but trust me when I say the weirdness is what can get your skin back. This oil contains all the anti-inflammation you require to reduce the size of those nodules. It also contains multiple water-soluble and lipid-soluble vitamins which are essential for the tissue regeneration you badly need for new skin to come and the old to go.
- Black currant seed oil
This is another oil that should be top of the list for you. Since it is an oil, it has all the important fats that your skin has to have. Black currant seed oil is also good for the health in general. Many heart patients have it too.
This is one of the best herbs out there, truthfully speaking, and not just for acne nodules. I remember I had the chicken pox and I used to rub neem on my back because it was the only thing that could not leave any scars from all the spots I had. Similarly, neem also helps with acne nodules. It can prevent acne scarring and boosts the immune system of the body.
- Aloe Vera
We have all heard this name before and have often seen it on lotions and face washes. Well, it is the skin plant, as I like to call it. Aloe Vera is often crushed and used as paste for acne. The elements and minerals in this plant is exactly what the skin requires. Other than treating acne, it also refreshes the skin, giving it a certain glow. Aloe Vera is also taken in the diet by some people to give inner benefits to the skin as well, not just treat it from the outside.
- Tea Tree Oil
If you’re in the mood to fight off the bacteria, this is what you’re looking for. It has all the micro anti-bacterial affects, and naturally so. You do not have to go out and buy an expensive anti bacterial soap when all you need is right here in the Tea Tree Oil. It reduces the inflammation and helps heal the acne ridden areas.
Choose And Act
Do not sit around and feel sorry for yourself if you have acne nodules. It is time to act. The sooner you start the treatment process, the sooner you can get your skin back to normal.
The human mind these days is set to the media and the media has only creams and products from big shot companies that sell. Well, the herbal method might not be advertised as much but know that it is just as effective if not more, on treating acne. Try it out and see for yourself!
