Once in awhile I get acne breakouts and one of the best natural medicines I like to use to help treat my acne and help clear it up is Nelson's Pure & Clear Acne Gel. It is made with natural ingredients that are suppose to help treat and prevent acne breakouts without harsh unnatural ingredients that could possibly cause your acne to breakout even more.The way I like to use the Nelson's Pure & Clear Acne Gel is by first washing my face with a nice natural acne cleansing face wash. Than I like to tone my face with my favorite Burt's Bees Toner, and after I like to apply a nice think clear layer of the Nelson's Pure & Clear Acne Gel. The way I apply it is gently squeezing some of the gel out of the tube it comes in and than I massage the gel into my acne areas and allow it to absorb and dry into the acne so treatment can work immediately and help clear up my acne naturally and effectively. You will notice as you apply this gel that it does tend to dry out your skin and feels a little bit sticky at first. You will also definitely want to make sure you apply this gel to just your acne areas and not to your whole entire face otherwise your going to end up with one red itchy dry face.
The natural healing acne ingredients in the Nelson's Pure & Clear Acne Gel are tea tree oil, alcohol and trolamine. These ingredients are what help reduce the red puffiness caused by the acne while drawing out the puss that is underneath so the acne can dry up and heal properly so you can have a nice clear face again. When I use this natural acne gel it usually takes 3 to 4 days before all my acne is cleared up, but than I am usually left with an acne scar and end up putting some natural cocoa butter cream on them to help the scars fade away.
The best way to prevent acne breakouts is to wash your face only once a day with a gently natural acne cleanser. Than it is very important that you use a natural light moisturizing cream or lotion afterward to help add some moisture to yours skin so it doesn't dry out and because easily exposed to dirt, oils and bacteria that cause acne breakouts. If you let your skin dry out your pores are open wide and your skin is peeling constantly which allows nasty bacteria to get underneath the skin and cause your acne in the first place. If you wash your face constantly with acne face wash your just going to ask for more acne. Washing your face once a day is good enough because you do not want to remove all the natural oils from your skin that actually help keep your face moisturized and protected from acne.
Anyways, the stores you should be able to get the Nelson's Pure & Clear Acne Gel at if your looking for a natural alternative way to treat acne is your local herbal store or health food stores. If your lucky your drugstore might keep this natural acne gel on the shelf. You can also find it online at Vitacost.com which is where I bought mine. I believe the price I paid for mine was around $5, which is a pretty reasonable price for a natural medicine to help treat your acne and clear it up.
I wish all of you the best of luck at treating and clearing your acne right up with either the Nelson's Pure & Clear Acne Gel or with another natural acne gel that works better for you. I hope you all have clear acne free faces soon!
