Everyone wants to have smooth and youthful skin, but the expense of medical procedures isn’t feasible for everyone, nor are they always the correct solution! We’re here to help you get rid of Acne, Scars and Wrinkles at home.
Luckily, there are plenty of at-home regimens that you can use to remove and reduce the appearance of acne, scars, and wrinkles on your face.
Genetics, time spent in the sun, and our daily life habits can all contribute to acne, scars, and wrinkles on our face. If you’re looking for inexpensive and natural solutions to these skin issues, utilise a few (or all!) of these methods to get rid of acne, scars, and wrinkles at home.
1 – Massage your acne scars with honey
To reduce the appearance of acne scars, create an at-home face mask with honey. You can dab just a bit of honey on acne scars and leave it on overnight (apply a band-aid or plaster if you’re worried about the stickiness). You can also create a full-face mask with honey and a few crushed aspirin tablets.
Honey is a natural antibacterial and aspirin can help to prevent scarring while also clearing the skin of bacteria that causes acne. Win-win!
2 – Detoxify with a clay face mask
Makeup and dead skin cells can clog up pores and make scars more apparent. If you don’t fancy the DIY approach, our Pure Wellness Detoxifying Face Mask is the way to go. It has activated coconut charcoal and pink grapefruit essential oils and is perfect for any skin type. The 100% natural ingredients all work together to bring that lovely youthful glow back to your skin.
3 – Moisturise like your skin depends on it!
Because, honestly, it does! Having well-moisturised skin improves your skin’s elasticity so it’s more resistant to wrinkles and fine lines. Also, if your skin is too dry, your body can begin to overproduce sebum in order to make up for the lack of moisture.
To beat your body at its own game, use a few drops of Vitamin B Serum every morning and night, before applying makeup or other face creams. This serum is lightweight but really packs a punch! It can help to minimise pore size and regulate sebum production, while also calming the skin and reducing redness.
4 – Lather in Body Luxe Body Wash
Our all-new Luxe range is specifically formulated with organic, vegan, cruelty-free ingredients, 100% free from parabens, silicones, synthetic fragrances. What more could you want in a beauty product? None of the bad, all of the good.
Parabens are known to make skin more sensitive, and silicones can accelerate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. To keep your skin healthy, glowing, and free from known irritants like synthetic fragrances, grab a bottle of the Body Luxe Body Wash. Vanilla, rose, and orange blossom will leave you smelling divine, while Kakadu Plum and Davidson Plum protect your skin from damaging free radicals and leave it well-moisturised.
5 – Eat your way to healthy skin
They say that you are what you eat, right? If you want to have a healthy body on the outside, you have to start with what you put in the inside! Research shows that consuming more omega-3 fatty acids, less dairy, and foods that have a low glycemic index (pasta, white bread, and sugar) can help to clear up acne and prevent breakouts in the future.
6 – Get a good night’s sleep
Sleep is healthy for all sorts of reasons – it helps our bodies heal and feel more energised, allows us a chance to relax, and promotes healthy blood flow.
While all of these things are happening, our bodies are regenerating and repairing damage that occurs throughout our daily life activities. For example, during periods of increased blood flow our bodies start to produce more collagen. Collagen is necessary for skin elasticity and reducing wrinkles and sunspots! Struggling to sleep? We can help.
7 – Give yourself a daily facial massage – you deserve it!
All you have to do is take one-minute out of your day, every day, to smooth the fine lines in your skin. Apply a few drops of Vitamin A Serum with Retinol and use either a face roller or your fingers to press the serum into your skin and gently stretch your skin upwards and outwards.
Facial massages work to combat the effects of gravity and rub away existing fine lines that tend to appear around the mouth and eyes. At the same time, retinol, which has powerful anti-aging effects, penetrates deep into the layers of the skin to regenerate cells and always leave your skin looking new and fresh.
8 – Add a little bit of exercise to your daily routine
Or really, anything that gets your blood pumping. When your blood flows more freely, your cells can regenerate faster, and the result is reduced acne, scars, and wrinkles! Also, exercise helps to alleviate stress, another major factor in the presence of acne and wrinkles.
If you plan to exercise outside, make sure you throw some SPF on! Even if it’s a chilly day and you don’t think you need it, it’s better to know that your skin will be protected from any harmful UV rays, no matter how weak they might be.
9 – Get some rest
Now you’ve got a good arsenal of weapons to fight against acne, scars, and wrinkles. In between using them, don’t forget to give yourself some love and time to just relax. Grab a nice book, light a candle, and take some deep, calming breaths. Don’t let stress take away all of the hard work you’re putting into making your skin beautiful.
