Simple Pimple Solutions For You

Aug 17, 2007
While it's easy to find acne and pimple treatments, finding the just the right treatment or treatment product for you is what's important. By their mid-teens, nearly 35% of teenagers have acne severe enough to require some treatment from a medical professional. You can do it -- look better, feel better, and raise your self-esteem 150% by getting rid of your acne and pimples for good.

There are several different types of acne. The most common types of pimples are whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts. Acne is most common in teenagers and young adults. In a survey conducted in Great Britain, 95% of 16-year-old males and 83% of 16 year-old females had acne. Nearly 17 million people in the United States have acne.

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. Understanding that hormones may have some influence on the cause of acne needs to be considered. Experts just can't agree on what causes acne. Check your shampoo to make sure it isn't causing pimples or other breakouts on your forehead.

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. 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. Coconut is one of the best treatments I've found for 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.

Choose your makeup carefully, it should be oil free. One treatment method some people have used is applying cornstarch, egg whites or milk of magnesia as a facial mask. For a good acne treatment, that has worked for many, try applying virgin coconut oil daily, but on a small test area first.

During my years as a registered nurse, I've learned a lot about acne scars, acne scar treatments, and acne scar removal. Severe, inflamed, cystic acne always leaves scars after healing. Acne scars are an ongoing reminder of a common skin condition that can cause embarrassment and social isolation.

Some alternative doctors recommend eating raw cloves of garlic daily for acne. 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.

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

Drink plenty of water, a minimum of a quart a day. The two most common digestion issues that affect your skin are not enough water and not enough fiber. Consider taking cod liver oil or fish oil supplements every day.

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.

Analyze all the acne treatments available and make the best decision for you, based on your circumstances. By simply following a simple, pimple reduction plan you've developed for yourself and sticking with it, you can reduce the severity of your acne or even eliminate it entirely. In any case, try not to panic about your pimples and acne and take it day by day.
