Pimples Pimples - Who's Got the Pimples

Aug 17, 2007
You can do it -- look better, feel better, and raise your self-esteem 150% by getting rid of your pimples and acne for good. Living with acne can be very difficult, and even more difficult to find the right acne treatment for you.

As a registered nurse, I've learned a lot over the years about pimples. acne, acne scars, and now cutting-edge acne treatments.

Acne will affect almost every person at some stage of their life. Acne is one of most common skin conditions in the world, affecting more than 40 million people. Acne vulgaris is most commonly experienced around puberty, typically of the face, shoulders and chest.

Baby acne is a rash seen on the cheeks, chin, and forehead of infants. Acne is most common in teenagers and young adults.

The cause of acne is really unknown. Doctors think certain factors might cause or contribute to acne including hormone increases in teenage years, hormone changes in pregnancy, starting or stopping birth control pills, heredity, medicines and greasy make-up.

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

Do you know about coconut oil? It just takes motivation, a willingness to try it, and diligent application of coconut oil several times a day and at bedtime to see its benefits. Besides acne, if you also have eczema or dry skin, coconut oil will treat those skin conditions too.

One helpful remedy seems to be to use ice to reduce the swelling caused by inflamed pimples: rub it over the blemishes for 2-3 minutes.

Drinking pure, filtered water may be the best acne treatment working from the inside out. Skin care acne treatment is one of the most misunderstood topics there is when it comes to acne skin care.

Coconut oil is very inexpensive, therefore, a good, cheap home remedy. Some natural home remedies include dabbing on non-gel toothpaste to dry out zits or lemon juice.

Consider the new research - using red light and blue light TOGETHER to treat acne. A skin specialist in New York is using it successfully now. Before this, skin doctors have used them individually with only limited results.

There are several types of acne scars: ice-pick scars, depressed fibrotic scars, superficial and deep soft scars, and atrophic macules. Acne scars are an ongoing reminder of a common skin condition that can cause embarrassment and social isolation.

In any case, no matter what skin or acne treatment you choose, whether it is chemical, drugs, alternative, or natural methods, changing your diet will result in your overall good health! People with skin disorders such as acne, rosacea, and psoriasis often suffer from constipation.

When you change your diet, your lesions should be getting better within 30 days. 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.

Put two tablespoons of coconut oil in your smoothies. Drink plenty of water, a minimum of a quart a day. Eat high-fiber snacks like raw nuts, raw seeds, and dried fruit, such as dates, and figs.

Many skin conditions can be converted into healthy skin using natural home remedies. The skin is subject to constant attack from without, so can be affected by numerous conditions, diseases and ailments.

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.

You should see the results of your acne home treatment remedies with improved skin within just a few days. When it comes to pimples and acne - acne prevention is always a better choice than searching for a cure.
