Your Quick Guide To Natural Acne Treatments

Aug 17, 2007
As a registered nurse, I've learned a lot over the years about acne, acne scars, and acne treatments. You can do it -- look better, feel better, and raise your self-esteem 150% by getting rid of your acne for good. Acne is caused by the clogging of the follicle of a skin gland causing a pimple to grow.

Acne is the most common skin disease. There are several different types of acne. Most pimples are found on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders. Numerous studies have revealed that acne is not simply a problem of the young: it also afflicts people of many ages, and it affects daily life. Baby acne is a rash seen on the cheeks, chin, and forehead of infants.

Experts just can't agree on what causes acne. It's not true that dirty skin and stress cause acne. Check your shampoo to make sure it isn't causing pimples or other breakouts on your forehead. The cause of acne is really unknown.

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. 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.

A new treatment using red light and blue light has been extremely successful on severe acne. Some natural home remedies include dabbing on non-gel toothpaste to dry out zits or lemon juice. A skin specialist in New York is now using a combination of red light and blue light therapy to treat severe cases of acne successfully. It's always best to seek non-invasive treatment for any skin condition. Popping pimples can cause infection and scarring.

Acne scars can give the skin an aging look. See your skin doctor, dermatologist or dermatological surgeon for the best acne scar treatment for you. Acne scars resulting from loss of tissue are more common than scars resulting from increased tissue formation.

When you change your diet, your lesions should be getting better within 30 days. 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.

The liver sluffs off toxins from bad foods, drinks, drugs and chemicals and sends them through your skin resulting in skin eruptions, acne, pimples and other skin disorders. People with skin disorders such as acne, rosacea, and psoriasis often suffer from constipation.

Put two tablespoons of coconut oil in your smoothies. Drink freshly juiced carrot juice every day. Fatty acids are particularly important to people with dry skin.

The skin supports its own ecosystems of microorganisms, including yeasts and bacteria, which cannot be removed by any amount of cleaning. Functions of the skin are disturbed when it is dirty; it becomes more easily damaged, the release of antibacterial compounds decreases and dirty skin is more prone to develop infections.

Analyze all the acne treatments available and make the best decision for you, based on your circumstances. Be assured, scientists are constantly looking at new non-invasive ways to treat acne. 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.
