The 5 Best Natural Ingredients for Treating Acne

An apple a day might not really keep the doctor away, but apple extract just might make your skin a whole lot smoother!

The 5 Best Natural Ingredients for Treating Acne

1. Apple Fruit

An apple a day might not really keep the doctor away, but apple extract just might make your skin a whole lot smoother!

When it comes to apples in skincare, you can generally expect two things: smoother skin and a healthy glow. Apples are rich in antioxidants like vitamin A, vitamin C, and B complex, which works to protect your skin against free radicals, aka, the most significant cause for signs of ageing! Thanks to their natural sugars and slightly acidic nature, apple fruit can even create a gently exfoliating effect.

2. Aloe Vera

Have you ever been sunburnt? While not great, it happens to the best of us. But that’s how most people become acquainted with the soothing and healing benefits of Aloe Vera. This cooling gel comes from the spiky aloe plant. Not only does it feel naturally smooth and comfortable on your skin, but it can also help decrease redness and heal skin irritation. Aloe Vera is pretty easy to find - likely, you can even find it in its natural state in the grocery store’s produce section!

3. Witch Hazel

Witch hazel is an ingredient that has been used in skincare for centuries, and its benefits continue to hold up today.

As a highly astringent plant, Witch Hazel has a tightening effect on the skin, with the highlighted benefit of bringing down the inflammation. This makes it a valuable ingredient not only for clearing acne but for promoting a youthful look, too!

4. Green Tea

Enjoy a cup of green tea now and then? You’ll be happy to hear that your daily cuppa can actually be the secret to the clear, acne-free skin you crave. The dried tea leaves are rich in antioxidants which can help clarify your pores and promote a smooth complexion. Try making a mask with green tea leaves and honey or Aloe Vera and apply for a few minutes up to twice a week.

5. Coconut Oil

We make no secret of the fact that we love Coconut Oil, here at Emani. It’s the best natural moisturizer we can find and it does wonders for acne-prone skin. If your acne is triggered by overly dry skin, Coconut Oil might be the soothing moisturizer you’re looking for. But like so many of our other favorite ingredients, it also naturally fights bacteria. Collectively, our Emani Team always has a tub of Coconut Oil in the bathroom to use as a daily moisturizer - and we think it might work for you too!
