6 Simple Remedies For Dry Skin Acne

6 Simple Remedies For Dry Skin Acne
Although acne is usually associated with oily skin, your skin may even breakout when it is dry. Conventional acne remedies work by reducing sebum secretion. However, remedies suitable for oily skin are unsuitable for the dry skin. They aggravate skin dryness. If you are troubled by acne although your skin is dry, you need a remedy that apart from addressing the underlying cause of the breakout keeps the skin hydrated. Usually, the structure of the pore follicles is responsible for triggering acne breakouts in people with dry skin. When the sebum fails to reach the surface of the skin because of the size or shape of the hair follicle it gets trapped in the pores and forms acne. Exfoliating and cleansing the skin help remove the deep seated dirt and oil, thereby unclogging the pores and minimizing breakouts.

The Following Remedies Can Help Clear Dry Skin Acne.

1. Plum Mask

Boil eight ounces of plums and mash until smooth. Add a teaspoon of almond oil and mix well. Spread a thin layer of the paste on your face, focusing on the acne prone areas. Leave it on for 10 minutes and rinse off. This mask helps keep the skin supple and reduces acne. [1]

2. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a wonderful remedy for the acne prone dry skin. The antibacterial property of the medium chain fatty acids present in coconut oil helps in inhibiting growth of the acne causing bacteria. Coconut oil keeps the skin moisturized and reduces inflammation and irritation. Apply a small amount of coconut oil to your skin. For faster relief, mix few drops of tea tree, lavender or Indian lilac oil with coconut oil. [2]

Yogurt is also a natural source of B vitamins and calcium that helps in maintaining the skin health. With a cold spoon spread a thin layer of yogurt on your face. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse off with cool water. [3]

For stronger antiseptic effect, mix four drops of tea tree oil with two tablespoons of honey and apply to the affected area. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse with water. [4]
