Our Fave Natural Acne Remedies: Say Goodbye to Acne Naturally! 🌿✨

We know dealing with acne can be frustrating, especially when you’ve tried countless products with little success. Sometimes, the best solutions are found in nature. We’re sharing our favorite natural remedies that can help you achieve clearer skin without harsh chemicals. Let’s dive in!

Tea Tree Oil: Nature’s Powerful Antiseptic 🌱

Tea tree oil is a popular natural remedy known for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. The active compound, terpinen-4-ol, is what makes tea tree oil effective against acne. It penetrates the skin to unblock sebaceous glands, disinfect pores, and dry out whiteheads, blackheads, and pimples.

We love it in our STĀS Clarifying Complex Serum ($60) because this concentrated, non-drying formula harnesses the power of nature to inhibit bacteria, clear pores, and calm redness. Along with tea tree oil, it features hyaluronic acid for deep hydration, chamomile and calendula to soothe inflammation, and willow bark extract for its skin-soothing and antioxidant benefits.

Honey: Sweet Relief for Your Skin 🍯

Honey, particularly Manuka honey, has potent antibacterial properties. Manuka honey's effectiveness is measured by its Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) rating, which indicates the concentration of its beneficial compounds like methylglyoxal (MGO). A UMF rating of 10 or higher is ideal for therapeutic use. It not only fights bacteria but also keeps the skin moist and accelerates the healing process.

Sweeten your routine with Manuka Health's Eternal Renewal Regenerating Face Cream with Royal Jelly and Bee Venom ($140). This luxurious cream, featuring MGO 800+ Manuka honey, smooths, enhances, and richly replenishes the skin. 

Aloe Vera: The Ultimate Skin Soother 🌵

Aloe vera is renowned for its soothing and healing properties due to its rich content of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It contains polysaccharides that stimulate skin repair and glycoproteins that reduce inflammation and redness. Aloe vera also has antimicrobial properties that help prevent further acne breakouts.

Brighten and balance your complexion with Mario Badescu’s alcohol-free, anti-aging Glycolic Acid Toner. This toner harnesses the benefits of exfoliating glycolic acid, rejuvenating grapefruit extract, and soothing aloe vera. Glycolic acid brightens and resurfaces the skin, grapefruit extract increases moisture and clears congested skin, and aloe vera hydrates and soothes, gradually fading dark spots for a youthful, radiant complexion.

Green Tea: More Than Just a Drink 🍵

Green tea is rich in catechins, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. EGCG reduces sebum production, fights bacterial growth, and prevents the growth of new acne lesions. Its antioxidant properties help in reducing inflammation and promoting skin healing.

Experience the power of green tea with our STĀS Repair Mask. Developed for all skin types, this nutrient-dense sheet mask helps repair damaged skin, reduce inflammation, and address various signs of aging. Our transdermal delivery system delivers a cocktail of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals deep into the skin to activate stem cells, promote skin repair and regeneration, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Magnesium Glycinate: Reduce Cortisol Naturally 💊

Magnesium Glycinate supplements are a great way to reduce cortisol levels, which is beneficial for managing stress-related acne. Cortisol, a stress hormone, can trigger oil production and lead to breakouts. By helping to manage stress and reduce cortisol levels, magnesium assists in maintaining hormonal balance and minimizing acne flare-ups.

Magnesium is crucial for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, including those that regulate mood and stress responses. Glycinate is a form of magnesium that is highly absorbable and gentle on the stomach, making it an excellent choice for daily supplementation. It also helps improve sleep quality, which is essential for healthy skin, as restorative sleep supports skin repair and regeneration.

Including magnesium glycinate in your routine can help calm the nervous system, promote relaxation, and improve overall skin health by addressing one of the root causes of acne: stress.

Spearmint Tea: Combat Hormonal Acne 🍃

Spearmint tea is known for its anti-androgenic properties, which means it helps to lower testosterone levels in the body. High levels of androgens can increase sebum production, leading to acne. Drinking spearmint tea regularly can help balance hormones and reduce acne caused by hormonal imbalances.

For those suffering from Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), elevated testosterone levels are a common issue that can exacerbate acne. Many individuals with PCOS have turned to spearmint tea as a natural remedy, and entire forums are dedicated to sharing how this simple tea has helped them manage their symptoms. Spearmint tea works by reducing androgen levels, thereby decreasing sebum production and reducing the severity and frequency of breakouts.

Regular consumption of spearmint tea not only helps with acne but also provides a calming and refreshing experience. It can be a soothing part of your daily routine, offering both health benefits and a moment of relaxation.

In Summary

Remember, everyone’s skin is different, so what works for one person might not work for another. If acne persists, consider consulting a dermatologist.
