Help For Those With Acne Problems

Aug 17, 2007
There are times when one needs to consider alternative, natural, effective treatment methods to get the best cure or solution for 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.

By their mid-teens, nearly 35% of teenagers have acne severe enough to require some treatment from a medical professional.

The most common types of pimples are whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts. 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. There are several different types of acne. Acne is the most common skin disease.

Acne, zits, pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and many other skin disorders are usually, but not always, the result of a bad diet. I think the cause of acne is related to our Standard American Diet (SAD) and that would also influence all our hormones.

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. Check your shampoo to make sure it isn't causing pimples or other breakouts on your forehead.

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. A skin specialist in New York is now using a combination of red light and blue light therapy to treat severe cases of acne successfully. Popping pimples can cause infection and scarring.

Drinking pure, filtered water may be the best acne treatment working from the inside out. Treatment with raw apple cider vinegar will work better on your skin if it isn't already noticeably irritated from acne medicines, acne products or other failed treatment.

You want to avoid squeezing, pinching, or picking your pimples because it can cause scars or dark spots on the skin. Choose your makeup carefully; it should be free of oil.

Severe, inflamed, cystic acne always leaves scars after healing. 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. Scars may also contribute to a person looking older than their age as the skin loses its elasticity over the years.

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. 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. Eat foods that contain essential fatty acids. Consider taking cod liver oil or fish oil supplements every day. Use flaxseed oil or walnut oil in your salad.

Sunlight, water and air play an important role in keeping the skin healthy. The skin must be regularly cleaned or it'll become cracked or inflamed. By simply following a plan you've developed for yourself and sticking with it, you can reduce the severity of your acne or even eliminate it entirely.

With cheap, safe, simple, natural, effective, alternative home treatments for acne and pimples, your skin should be well on its way to recovery. When it comes to acne, acne prevention is always a better choice than searching for a cure.
