Nurse's Guide To Acne Skin Care

Aug 17, 2007
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. While it is easy to find acne treatments, finding the just the right treatment or treatment product for you is what is important.

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. Nearly 80 percent of people from ages 11 to 30 years have acne, most often on the face, chest and back. Baby acne is a rash seen on the cheeks, chin, and forehead of infants. Acne is most common in teenagers and young adults.

Understanding that hormones may have some influence on the cause of acne needs to be considered. I think the cause of acne is related to our Standard American Diet (SAD) and that would also influence all our hormones. As time goes by, more research may help determine just how male and female hormones influence acne and the role diet plays. Experts just can't agree on what causes acne.

Try not to touch your skin to eliminate possible contamination. 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. Stay out of the sun if you're taking any acne medicines. Skin specialists are now using a combination of red light and blue light therapy to treat severe cases of acne successfully.

Skin care acne treatment is one of the most misunderstood topics there is when it comes to acne skin care. 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. Popping pimples can cause infection and scarring.

Acne scars are an ongoing reminder of a common skin condition that can cause embarrassment and social isolation. Acne is not a serious health threat but, it can cause scars. Whether acne scarring is deep or superficial, extensive or scattered, the end result can be less than desirable and even disturbing.

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. 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.

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. Use flaxseed oil or walnut oil in your salad. Eat at least one organic apple with the skin on every day.

The skin supports its own ecosystems of microorganisms, including yeasts and bacteria, which cannot be removed by any amount of cleaning. 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.

When it comes to acne, acne prevention is always a better choice than searching for a cure. Be assured, scientists are constantly looking at new non-invasive ways to treat acne. Analyze all the acne treatments available and make the best decision for you, based on your circumstances.
