Cystic acne, if left untreated, can continue to build up sebum and clog the pores, which will cause more irritation and swelling. Deep cysts can continually grow and be as big as a quarter and can stick on the skin for months if no treatment is applied. Deep cyst acne can anytime erupt and can leave holes in your face. Sometimes, commercial medications for acne can be too harmful for erupted cystic acne and can tend to exacerbate the skin condition. The good thing here is that there are home remedies that you can use to make sure that you alleviate the eruptions without causing any negative effects and aggravation.
Natural products work and you know they are safe. So, save money by making and applying these homemade remedies for deep cyst acne eruptions.
- Castor Oil
Castor oil is greatly purgative, which is the perfect tool to clear out the pores without trying to reclog them. Scrubbing the skin with castor oil facilitates the stuck oil inside the pores to unite with this oil being applied to the skin. Trapped oils are actually easier to release than with soap. Set a tablespoon of castor oil and spread it to affected skin area and gently yet deeply massage it in about two minutes. Place a steaming, hot washcloth on the skin to make the skin open its pores through the steam. This will allow the oil and impurities to exit the skin. As long as the washcloth cools, start to wipe the oil off with the washcloth. Apply this homemade remedy twice in a day by doing once during the morning and another during night.
- Baking Soda
When cleansing has been done, it is important to exfoliate the affected skin area. Baking soda is a highly alkaline and exfoliating constituent, which can be applied to the deep cysts without the need to damage or scratch it. Baking soda does not just only remove the dead skin cells but it also slays the bacteria that are causing acne. It does not just relieve the acne but it also prevents the occurrences of new acne under the skin. Make a paste out of mixing a tablespoon of baking soda and a drizzle of water. Apply the paste on the affected skin area and start to massage in a circular motion for 2 minutes. Make sure to rinse off the baking soda well with water.
- Lemon Juice
You can make a homemade toner using a lemon juice. The process is never complete without applying a toner to surge the skin cell turnover. This is the time when your skin produces new and healthy cells while increasing the skin’s capacity to slough off the dead skin cells. Make a concentrated lemon juice and put it into an empty but clean spray container. Right after the baking soda scrub, you can spray your face with lemon juice thoroughly.
Though there may be over the counter synthetic acne medications that can be bought, it is always better that you know some effective home remedies for your deep cyst acne. Added to that, one must not miss to visit a dermatologist for prompt treatment.
