Acne Facts Treatments And Tips For You

Aug 17, 2007
Living with acne can be very difficult, and even more difficult to find the right acne treatment for you. 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.

By their mid-teens, nearly 35% of teenagers have acne severe enough to require some treatment from a medical professional. Nearly 17 million people in the United States have acne. Acne is the most common skin disease. People of all races and ages get acne. Baby acne is a rash seen on the cheeks, chin, and forehead of infants. There are several different types of acne.

As time goes by, more research may help determine just how male and female hormones influence acne and the role diet plays. Understanding that hormones may have some influence on the cause of acne needs to be considered.

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.

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. Coconut is one of the best treatments I've found for acne. Some natural home remedies include dabbing on non-gel toothpaste to dry out zits or lemon juice.

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. It's easy to treat acne cheaply, simply, naturally, yet effective, at home.

Use baking soda carefully to exfoliate. It's always best to seek non-invasive treatment for any skin condition.

There are several types of acne scars: ice-pick scars, depressed fibrotic scars, superficial and deep soft scars, and atrophic macules. As a registered nurse, I have learned a lot over the years about acne scars, acne scar treatments, and acne scar removal. The good news is that there are several types of treatments to choose from for acne scar removal.

Drink lots and lots of pure, filtered water. 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.

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. Besides external acne treatment it's best to work from the inside out too.

Eat high-fiber snacks like raw nuts, raw seeds, and dried fruit, such as dates, and figs. You want to help the skin from the inside out too. 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.

The skin must be regularly cleaned or it'll become cracked or inflamed. Functions of the skin are disturbed when it is dirty; it becomes more easily damaged, the release of antibacterial compounds decreases and dirty skin is more prone to develop infections.

Be assured, scientists are constantly looking at new non-invasive ways to treat acne. With cheap, safe, simple, natural, effective, alternative home treatments for acne and pimples, your skin should be well on its way to recovery. In any case, try not to panic about your acne and take it day by day.
