I battled for most of my teenage life and early 20’s with various episodes of bad face acne varying in severity. It was extremely annoying and most of all embarrassing. I tried just about everything under sunlight to cure it from facial washes, scrubs, moisturises and antibiotics. Nothing seemed to work for just about any great length of time.
I assume around my 20th birthday my acne disappeared which was an enormous relief but however my pleasure was temporary. What i started to develop now wasn’t acne but more an unsightly red blotchy annoyed allergy around my nasal area and cheeks. It was extremely annoying and possibly more disgusting to look at than my acne was.

I had to endure this for around three years, again trying every moisturiser and creme under sunlight to fix it. It wasn’t until a couple of months ago once i began to do a little of research into what the problem was that i came across the cure to my problem and haven’t looked back since.
After looking through a few sites online i found out that what i got was called Seborrheic dermatitis. In short it is actually a form of dermatitis that produces a candida called Mallassezia that grows on everyones face but is specially prevalent in people who have oily skin. This is the case because its this excess oil from the pores in your skin called sebum that the candida feeds on.
So essentially for years as i used to be applying cremes and moisturisers to my face to help my condition i used to be actually making things worse for myself. Some immediate action you must take if you have this condition is to immediately stop apply moistures to your face and also stop using face washes etc (you guessed it the candida feeds of this as well).
Literally every product you can think of like soaps, anti-fungal cremes etc all still provide food for the yeast to nourish off so it is essential you stop using these products on you face right away. The solution is an unlikely one and i will admit i had been skeptical initially but happy with the results.
Sea Salt is the wonder cure because of this! Various other articles will tell you you should employ Dead Sea Salt but honestly i have just used regular cooking food sea salt and it works really well. Now don’t just go scrubbing a heap of sea salt on that person, there is a little of a method you need to follow to get excellent results.
First off with tepid to warm water wash your face lightly to eliminate any dirt and most importantly open up your pores, do that for around 20 seconds. After that you want to fill your basin up with around 2 litres of again quite warm (not too hot) water then add one good sized tablespoon to the basin and mix till dissolved. You now want to fundamentally wash your face again with this water for two minutes or until the water is no longer warm. It may sting a little if your skin is currently inflamed but only going to the beach.
