Taking lots of water, maintaining a good diet and regular exercise can majorly contribute to clear and healthy skin.

Factors That Can Lead To Acne Breakouts:

  • Poor nutrition
  • Stress
  • PCOS
  • Birth control pills
  • Sleep deprivation

Home Remedies for Acne

Cleanse Gently

One of the most effective home remedies for acne is proper cleansing. To get rid of pimples, blackheads and whiteheads, try using a homemade honey face wash. The ingredients, including apple cider vinegar, honey, coconut oil, probiotics and essential oils, help soothe the skin while fighting acne-causing bacteria. Use on damp skin morning and evening.

Use Healing Masks

Using hydrating and healing face masks also helps a great deal. Use soothing ingredients like yogurt, honey, cinnamon and essential oils to create a homemade mask that fights harmful bacteria.

Yogurt and honey mask: Mix 1 tablespoon of raw honey with 1 tablespoon of yogurt. Apply the mask to your face, let it sit for 10 minutes, then rinse.

Honey and cinnamon mask: Mix 2 tablespoons of raw honey with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Spread the mask onto your face and let it sit for 5-10 minutes, then rinse.

Home Remedies For Acne

Exfoliate Regularly

Regular exfoliation helps keep your skin smooth and clear.

Start with a gritty base to remove dead skin and unclog pores, such as sea salt, brown sugar or oatmeal. Add in some coconut oil, kefir or honey to help fight bacteria, fungi and candida overgrowth on the skin. Use the mixture 1-2 times per week.

Coconut oil, honey and lavender essential oil can also help prevent scarring.

Tone to Restore pH Balance

Using a toner helps restore pH balance to the skin. Use apple cider vinegar morning and evening to help kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin. Apple cider vinegar contains magnesium, potassium and various enzymes that fight harmful bacteria.

Dip a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and use it on your face and neck, especially in areas that are prone to acne breakouts.

Moisturize

You can use coconut oil as a natural moisturizer to help fight bacteria while hydrating the skin. Coconut oil’s medium-chain fatty acids work to restore the health of the skin while preventing acne breakouts.

Spot Treat With Tea Tree Oil

Tree tea oil has natural antiseptic, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties that can prevent/heal acne.

For a homemade acne remedy, mix 4-8 drops of tea tree oil with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil or jojoba oil. Lightly dab the mixture onto problem areas to help fight acne-causing bacteria.

Use Holy Basil

Research has shown that holy basil can help fight acne from the inside out by working to balance hormones. Holy basil or holy basil tea can be used as a toner or added to a homemade mask to help kill bacteria.

Fedex Driver Shovels Snow Off Woman’s Porch When He Learns Her Husband Recently Died

Published

Leigh Anne’s husband had just passed away after fighting cancer for seven months at the age of 42. This left her with three young children to raise on her own as a single mother and widow.

In the middle of winter, after a pretty nasty snowstorm, the cold had deflated her tyres. Leigh Anne tried putting air back in her tires but found it too hard to remove the cap on her tyres, meaning she could not be able to refill them. Luckily she noticed Brian making a nearby call.

Brian is a friendly local delivery driver with FedEx who she had seen around her neighborhood and had even delivered a few packages to Leigh Anne a couple of times before.

Brian was happy and kind enough to help out with her tyres. As the two were chatting, Brian got to learn of Leigh Anne’s heartbroken state and her husband’s recent death.

Brian knew he had to do something to help her out. There was enough pain and stress in her life already, and there was just a small something he could do to make things a little better for her.

After helping Leigh Anne fix her car tyres and helping her back into her house, the FedEx driver quickly grabbed a shovel and got to work. He had noticed all the snow covering her porch and decided to help.

The doorbell camera captured Brian’s act of kindness, as he shovelled the snow off Leigh Anne’s porch and pathway to help her out. “Doorbell cameras don’t only catch people stealing packages,” Leigh Anne wrote on Facebook.

Brian’s kindness and thoughtfulness melted the hearts of thousands who saw the footage after it was shared on social media. God bless this man.

An elderly Kansas woman says it’s a miracle that she and her husband are alive after a bullet was fired into her home, all thanks to a framed photo of the Lord’s Prayer that saved them both.

Constance Effie said she had just sat down to watch some television in the living room of her Kansas City home when she heard an explosion-like sound. Her husband was also home at the time.

“All of a sudden ‘boom.’ I thought I was in a war zone because that was the loudest noise I ever heard,” Effie told WDAF.

The seventy year old woman said she then realized that someone had opened fire outside, leading to one of the bullets flying into her house. But instead of hitting her, the bullet hit a framed photo of the Lord’s Prayer that was hanging only two feet above her head.

“We looked all around and didn’t see a hole anywhere. I thought, ‘Look, that picture, the glass is all broken,'” she said. “It hit [the picture] and fell down behind [the couch]. But if it didn’t have the metal, it probably would’ve come on in and hit one of us.”

Effie believes God blocked the bullet from hurting them. She said the next day she had to be taken to the hospital where doctors told her that she had suffered a minor heart attack because of the scary ordeal.

“I was afraid after the near-death incident. I kept thinking I don’t want any more shooting,” Effie said, adding she constantly hears gunshots in her neighborhood. “The doctors said it looked like it was a stress heart attack but that it was a small one.”

“We’re lucky to be alive, and we’re happy,” Effie said. “We just hope and pray they understand not to do this anymore.”

Kansas City police are still investigating the shooting and have not identified the suspects yet.
