Acne - Heal Your Acne Naturally Forever

Aug 17, 2007
The key to healthy, clear skin is to choose a skin care regimen that's right for you based on the type of acne condition you have. Living with acne can be very difficult, and even more difficult to find just the right acne treatment for you. While most forms of acne are merely troublesome or embarrassing, there are some forms of acne that can lead to scarring and pitting of the skin.

People of all races and ages have acne. Acne will affect almost every person at some stage of their life. Nearly 80 percent of people from ages 11 to 30 years have acne, most often on the face, chest and back. Acne vulgaris is most commonly experienced around puberty, typically of the face, shoulders and chest.

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. New studies show that during times of high emotional stress, such as during exam time in high school, there are more acne breakouts; so are stress hormones the culprits?

It bears repeating, you want to be good to your skin and never pop or squeeze a pimple no matter how tempting. 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. Drinking lots of pure, filtered water may be one of the most important things you can do for your acne, working from the inside out.

If you're going to buy acne products, it's much more worth your while to buy acne-treating products that work against current pimples and prevent the occurrence of new ones. Popping pimples can cause infection and scarring; best not to do it. A new, non-invasive treatment using red light and blue light in combination has been extremely successful on severe acne.

Too many chemicals can strip your skin of its natural oils and the skin will overproduce oil to compensate for it, blocking your pores and causing more acne. Use baking soda on a test area carefully for exfoliation, if you feel you need it. Use only products that have natural ingredients or try to use fewer products to allow your skin to heal naturally.

Acne prone, sensitive skin can get irritated by using astringents, skin toners, rubbing alcohol, facial masks, make-up and certain hair care products. Try applying a thin layer of coconut oil and massaging it deep into the skin to heal and soothe the affected area. Shave carefully and try both electric and safety razors to see which works best for you.

No over-the-counter creams can help your acne from the inside out; they can only kill some of the bacteria on your face and help reduce the redness. Coconut oil is one of the best, if not the best, treatments I've found for acne.

Some alternative doctors recommend eating a raw clove of garlic daily for acne; you can chop one up and add it to your daily salad! Adding a lot of fresh, raw fruit to the diet has helped many people clear their skin up; there are tons of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in fruits. To cure yourself of acne, you need to correct the problems going on inside of your body that are causing the acne.

When your liver gets overloaded with toxins it'll send the toxins out through your skin as well as other organs of elimination. Besides external acne treatment it's even more important to work from the inside out too.

Get plenty of sunshine on your arms and legs; sunshine triggers the production of Vitamin D3 which is essential to having healthy skin. Consider taking cod liver oil or fish oil supplements every day. Eat at least two organic apples a day while working to clear up your skin; apples are good for skin health - organic so you can eat pesticide-free skin (most of the apple pectin is in the skin), which helps with constipation.

The two most common digestive concerns that affect your skin are not enough water and not enough fiber. The next time you want to have a snack, instead of junk food, help your skin - have an apple, orange, peach, pear, banana, plum, berries or any other fruit.

By simply following a plan you've developed for yourself and sticking with it, you can reduce the severity of your acne or even eliminate it entirely. One should always think about cheaper, alternative, natural, effective treatment methods to get the best cure or solution to their acne, zits, pimples and blackhead problems. And whatever you do, stop wasting your money buying hundreds of dollars in acne skin care treatments, find cheaper natural methods.
