Is There An Acne Cure ?

Aug 17, 2007
Any sufferer of acne would probably snap your hand off if you could give them a cure for this skin affliction. Unfortunately, though, so far there is no be all and end all cure for acne. However, there are numerous treatments that are the next best thing, whether you're the typical teenage sufferer, or of more advanced years.

One of the most popular methods around at the moment is the rather aptly named acnezine. Recommended for adults and teenagers alike, it works by using antioxidants that cleanse your skin from the inside. With the added bonus of keeping any inflammation under control, as well as minimizing any redness around the infected area, this is one of the most effective methods you can use.

Another highly recommended product is a clear gel called Acne Spot Gel. With many users commenting that this is like having an actual cure itself, it's applied to the skin, at which point it penetrates the surface. Working in a similar fashion to acnezine, it also attacks the pores that have been blocked with either oil or dirt. By forcing this waste out, it leaves the skin feeling clean and refreshed. Combined with the fact that it's an oil-free solution, the pores remain clean and significantly clear from the signs of acne.

A more natural method of fighting acne is from a wheat and barley derivative called azelaic acid. Available in cream form, it has a powerful combination of not only antibacterial elements, but also an exfoliating effect and anti-inflammatory agents. This helps it to prevent any future problems once the initial acne has cleared up. Since it uses a gentler approach, it's a good method for those who have sensitive skin.

Even something as simple as your every day diet can be as preventative as a cure itself. By avoiding fatty, greasy foods like burgers and deep-fried products, and maintaining a healthy balance of fruit and vegetables and cutting down on the amount of sugar intake you normally have, this can have a dramatic effect on the acne even beginning in the first place.

One of the more recent breakthroughs, even going as far as to claim it's the holy grail of a cure, is in the area of holistic acne treatment. There are now books that you can buy that describe this alternative to the more traditional approaches, as well as online guides. What holistic treatment does is look at how a person's emotional state can bring on an acne attack.

Stress is suggested as one of the major factors in whether a hitherto blemish-free person cam fall victim to this common but annoying skin complaint. Hormones are also discussed, as well as other less common issues.

Although acne can be a distressing problem for anyone who suffers from it, there are advances in treatments being made all the time.

Despite there not being an actual acne cure at the moment, it surely won't be too long before this problem is a thing of the past.
