How to Remove Acne With Hot Water

One of the main causes of acne is the build up of various oils and bacteria in the surface of the skin. These irritate the skin and can eventually erupt into the little mounds of unpleasantness that we call acne. A bit of a myth that surrounds acne is that it's a results of bad hygiene. I've discovered that this tends to offend most people (and I don't blame them!) and for the most part it's not really true. You're far more likely to get it from stress, hormonal changes and your genes then you are likely to get it from not washing your skin every other hour.

That said, you can make a bit of a change to the condition of your acne with hot water. Hot water helps to kill bacteria and reduces the build up of the oils and the stuff that causes acne.

Firstly - get into the habit of washing your skin twice a day. I'm sure you wash your skin already, but I thought that I'd better mention it in case you aren't currently doing it. Use a mild natural soap to help dislodge some of the oils and whatever else is clogging up your pores. If you perform any other treatments for either acne or acne scars, this is the step to finish with. Nothing worse then having stuff stuck in your skin. If you apply makeup during the day then it is vitally important to wash your skin well.

Secondly, you can use boiling water (or very very hot water) as a spot treatment. Soak the end of a face cloth in boiling water. I don't think I need to tell you to be careful (or do I?). Dab your spots with the hot water. If you don't touch the skin surrounding the zit it shouldn't hurt. What the hot water does is force the bacteria to come to the surface of the zit which is then zapped by the heat.

If you like, now's a great time to apply an anti-septic such as tea tree oil. This will further increase how effective this hot water treatment is. This is actually a treatment that I used all throughout teenage-hood for me, and I've usually found it to be a very helpful, very successful treatment.

Hot water is one of the safest and the easiest ways to treat acne. Water is I think the greatest cleanser we have available to us, so regardless of whether you use the tea tree oil or the soap, you'll still get a good chunk of those benefits. Make sure you consider other natural acne treatments as well in order to really get a handle on your skin.
