Since the cause is blockage, to treat it we need to get rid of the blockage! Here are some simple and cost effective ways to deal with acne here in Nigeria:
We Nigerians tend to sweat alot due to the intensity of heat we have here. Some have wondered if we still have an ozone layer... But to keep the body properly hydrated, learn to drink water as often as possible. It's medically stated that an average human should drink nothing less than eight cups of water. This would help cleanse the body of impurities, including the stuffs that block the pores.
Are you one of those that can't stop touching the face?Well, this is for you. Don't squeeze, pick, scratch or rub your skin as scars may form if you squeeze pimples. Try as much as possible to not touch your face, it also makes it easy for germs you have picked up with your hands to get to your face thus leading to inflammation. This brings me to my next point:
Wash your hands regularly! This would help reduce the risk of germs touring round your body. Get yourself a bottle of hand sanitiser to help combat those germs. Also keep your face towel/handkerchief clean. Always!
The type of food we eat also plays a role in how our bodies function. Exceesive consumption of fatty food may lead to break out. Eating healthy food such as vegetables, fruits and fibres also help to cleanse the body.
With all these eating healthy and water consumption, you would definately need to go to the toilet. Toxins need to be constantly removed from the body if not they start causing blockages and other
damages to the body.
Get a good cleanser for your skin type and try to exercise as often as possible. Exercise helps to increase body metabolism which in turn pushes out toxins from the cells.
Now you are on your way to a healthier acne-free skin.
P.S: if there is no improvement after some time, you may have to see a doctor. But acne takes time to treat, so exercise patience.
