Finding The Perfect Acne Treatment For You

Aug 17, 2007
Acne is caused by the clogging of the follicle of a skin gland causing a pimple to grow. There are times when one has to think about alternative, natural, effective treatment methods to get the best cure or solution to their acne, zits, pimples and blackhead problems.

Natural treatment methods are always a better choice for acne due to less exposure to drugs and chemical-laden acne products.

Several factors have been suggested to influence acne including diet, menstruation, sweating, UV radiation, stress, and occupation. Acne is one of most common skin conditions in the world, affecting more than 40 million people. The most common type of acne is acne vulgaris.

Baby acne is a rash seen on the cheeks, chin, and forehead of infants. While almost all young people experience acne at least once, it has been reported that 47% of those in their 20s and 30% of those in their 30s had acne.

The cause of acne is really unknown. Scientists are looking at ways to prevent plugs and ways to stop testosterone from causing acne, if it truly does.

The liver sluffs off toxins from bad foods, drinks, drugs and chemicals and sends them through your skin resulting in skin eruptions, acne, pimples and other skin disorders.

I think the cause of acne is related to our Standard American Diet (SAD) and that would also influence all our hormones.

It's always best to seek non-invasive treatment for any skin condition. Coconut oil is very inexpensive, therefore, a good, cheap home remedy.

Drinking pure, filtered water may be the best acne treatment working from the inside out. Never underestimate the healing, restorative power of a good night's sleep.

Popping pimples can cause infection and scarring. You want to be good to your skin and never pop or squeeze a pimple no matter how tempting. It's easy to treat acne cheaply, simply, naturally, yet effective, at home.

Healed acne leaves scars in some people however, and it isn't easy to predict who will end up with scars after an acne outbreak and who won't. As a registered nurse, I have learned a lot over the years about acne scars, acne scar treatments, and acne scar removal.

Acne is not a serious health threat but, it can cause scars.

Whether you eat a natural diet with living fruits and vegetables or eat dead junk food, what you eat may have a direct or indirect affect on the male hormones which may play a part in acne.

Drink lots and lots of pure, filtered water. Essential fatty acids are particularly important to people with inflammatory conditions such as eczema and acne. Besides external acne treatment it's best to work from the inside out too.

Use flaxseed oil or walnut oil in your salad. For an easy fiber boost, mix in 2 tablespoons of ground up flaxseeds in raw applesauce, from 2-3 apples, made in your food processor. You do want to help the skin from the inside out too.

The skin must be regularly cleaned or it'll become cracked or inflamed. The skin supports its own ecosystems of microorganisms, including yeasts and bacteria, which cannot be removed by any amount of cleaning.

And you should be able to get rid of your acne, zits and pimples and their symptoms, providing you've removed the cause, so it doesn't reoccur. Analyze all the acne treatments available and make the best decision for you, based on your circumstances.In any case, try not to panic about your acne and take it day by day.
