Popping Pimples Is Never A Good Idea

Aug 17, 2007
By their mid-teens, nearly 35% of teenagers have acne severe enough to require some treatment from a medical professional. While it is easy to find acne treatments, finding the just the right treatment or treatment product for you is what is important.

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.

People of all races and ages get acne. The most common type of acne is acne vulgaris. For most people, acne goes away by age 30, but people in their forties and fifties still get acne. In a survey conducted in Great Britain, 95% of 16-year-old males and 83% of 16 year-old females had acne. Acne is a group of skin rashes that have different causes.

Acne, zits, pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and many other skin disorders are usually, but not always, the result of a bad diet. There is still much to be learned about what causes acne. It's not true that dirty skin and stress cause acne. The cause of acne is really unknown.

You want to be good to your skin and never pop or squeeze a pimple no matter how tempting. Stay out of the sun if you're taking any acne medicines.

Raw apple cider vinegar application is a cheap, alternative acne treatment that has worked for many adults, teens and children with acne, zits, pimples, or blemishes. The treatment plan for acne includes trying to heal the pimples, stopping new pimples from forming, preventing scarring and helping reduce embarrassment.

A new treatment using red light and blue light has been extremely successful on severe acne. 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. 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.

Acne scars can give the skin an aging look. Acne is not a serious health threat but, it can cause scars. 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.

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. When you change your diet, your lesions should be getting better within 30 days. Besides external acne treatment it's best to work from the inside out too. People with skin disorders such as acne, rosacea, and psoriasis often suffer from constipation.

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. Use flaxseed oil or walnut oil in your salad. 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.

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.

The skin must be regularly cleaned or it'll become cracked or inflamed. You should see the results of your acne home treatment remedies with improved skin within just a few days.

With cheap, safe, simple, natural, effective, alternative home treatments for acne and pimples, your skin should be well on its way to recovery. One should always think about alternative, natural, effective treatment methods to get the best cure or solution to their acne, zits, pimples and blackhead problems.
