Save Your Money- Cheap Natural Acne Skin Care Tips

Aug 17, 2007
While it's easy to find acne treatments, finding the just the right treatment or treatment product for you is what is important. Acne is caused by the clogging of the follicle of a skin gland causing a pimple to grow. Living with acne can be very difficult, and even more difficult to find the right acne treatment for you.

People of all races and ages get acne. While almost all young people experience acne at least once; it's been reported that 47% of those in their 20s and 30% of those in their 30s had acne. Baby acne is a rash seen on the cheeks, chin, and forehead of infants. Acne will affect almost every person at some stage of their life. The most common type of acne is acne vulgaris.

Scientists are looking at ways to prevent plugs and ways to stop testosterone from causing acne, if it truly does. 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. Acne, zits, pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and many other skin disorders are usually, but not always, the result of a bad diet.

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. One good natural method is to apply a thin layer of coconut oil and massage it deep into the skin to heal and soothe it. Drinking pure, filtered water may be the best acne treatment working from the inside out.

Choose your makeup carefully, it should be oil free. 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.

You want to avoid squeezing, pinching, or picking your pimples because it can cause scars or dark spots on the skin.

There are several types of acne scars: ice-pick scars, depressed fibrotic scars, superficial and deep soft scars, and atrophic macules. See your skin doctor, dermatologist or dermatologic surgeon for the best acne scar treatment for you. Scars may also contribute to a person looking older than their age as the skin loses its elasticity over the years.

People with skin disorders such as acne, rosacea, and psoriasis often suffer from constipation. Essential fatty acids are particularly important to people with inflammatory conditions such as eczema and acne. Some alternative doctors recommend eating raw cloves of garlic daily for acne. When you change your diet, your lesions should be getting better within 30 days.

Consider taking cod liver oil or fish oil supplements every day. Concentrating on a diet of LOTS of fruits and vegetables (preferably uncooked) and no junk food, should give you an observable improvement within 30 days. Put 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in your smoothies.

Functions of the skin are disturbed when it's dirty; it becomes more easily damaged, the release of antibacterial compounds decreases and dirty skin is more prone to develop infections.

Unclean skin favors the development of pathogenic organisms - the dead cells that continually slough off of the epidermis mix with the secretions of the sweat and sebaceous glands and the dust found on the skin to form a filthy layer on its surface.

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. 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.
