You have probably tried a few products that caused irritation and dryness. If you fall into this category, you are in luck. I will outline three easy step to get rid of acne.

  • 1. Use green tea: Green tea contains an antioxidant that helps fight inflammation and reduces sebum production. It also contains tannins and flavonoids that help fight the bacteria that produce acne. Firstly, put the green tea in hot water and allow it to cool. After that, use cotton wool to apply to the affected area. Apply twice a day for maximum result.
  • 2. Moisten the affected area with aloe vera: aloe vera plant produces a very clear gel. When you apply this gel to the affected area, it reduces the bacteria producing acne. This is because aloe vera contains cinnamonic acid and sulfur that reduces acne production. Aloe vera also helps to speed up the healing of wounds. Apply the gel from the aloe vera on your skin twice daily. Aloe vera works more effectively when applied with other acne treatments.
  • 3. Wash your face regularly: our oil-producing glands are always working. Hence, we need to wash our face regularly to avoid creating room for blemishes and pores. Always wash your face with warm water after applying makeup. Depriving our oil-producing glands’ opportunity to flourish, helps reduce acne production.

If the acne persists, do well to see a dermatologist.

Steps for Effective Decision Making

  • 1. Specify the decision to be made. Firstly, you need to define the problem or situation that requires decision-making. It could be something as simple as deciding on a dinner outfit or something as complex as deciding a career path.
  • 2. List out your option. Even if the situation seems limited, try to make a list of possible options. Don’t evaluate at this point, just write what comes to your mind. Whether the idea seems crazy or not, put it down. You can always cross it off the list.
  • 3. Go over each option and weigh the outcome. List out every possible outcome for each option, whether it be negative or positive, put it down. Is the outcome worth it? Would you be able to forgive yourself after that kind of outcome? Answer all these questions before moving to the next step.
  • 4. Talk with your intuition. Imagine your ideal self, what would he or she think of this decision? If he or she wouldn’t, what would they have done differently? Picture every outcome in steps 3 and grade which of them you felt proudest of. Which of the outcomes made you feel like a better person?
  • 5. Make a choice. Yes, this is the hardest step. You must be ready to accept whatever comes out of that decision. You should be ready to bear the responsibilities.
  • 6. Execute your decisions joyfully. Don’t drain yourself thinking about the other options you could have gone with. Go ahead and implement your decision with joy.
  • 7. Evaluate your decision. This is the most important step. If you don’t take time to go over your decision, you won’t learn valuable lessons from it. Ask yourself feel questions. Was the result you got expected? Would you make this same decision again? Draw wisdom from the decision you have made.

In conclusion, always weigh the pros and cons before making any decision. Follow these seven steps closely for effective decision-making.
