Cure Your Acne Forever

Aug 17, 2007
There is hope -- keep researching, learning and testing and you'll find the right 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. If you or someone you love suffers from acne - what you want to know is what you can do about it.

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. There are several different types of acne. Acne will affect almost every person at some stage of their life.

Scientists are trying to find the cause of acne and working on ways to prevent plugs. Check your shampoo to make sure it isn't causing pimples or other breakouts on your forehead. I think the cause of acne is related to our acidic, inflammatory 'standard American diet' (SAD) and that would also influence all of our hormones including stress hormones.

It's easy to treat acne cheaply, simply, naturally, yet effectively, at home. If you wear make-up choose it carefully; it should be oil free. Make sure to stay out of the sun if you're taking any acne medications.

A new, non-invasive treatment using red light and blue light in combination has been extremely successful on severe acne. A skin specialist in New York is using the new red light-blue light combination therapy to treat severe cases of acne successfully; ask your skin doctor or dermatologist if he's familiar with it. One treatment method some people have used is applying cornstarch, egg whites or milk of magnesia as a facial mask.

Coconut oil is one of the best, if not the best, treatments I've found for acne. Try not to touch your affected skin to eliminate possible contamination. Use baking soda on a test area carefully for exfoliation, if you feel you need it.

When you wash your face use a soft touch, taking care not to rub or scrub your skin. Make sure not to use hot water on your face, always use lukewarm water. Use only products that have natural ingredients or try to use fewer products to allow your skin to heal naturally.

It's always best to seek non-invasive and natural treatment for any skin condition. Acne prone, sensitive skin can get irritated by using astringents, skin toners, rubbing alcohol, facial masks, make-up and certain hair care products.

Besides external acne treatment it's even more important to work from the inside out too. Whether you eat a natural diet of 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 or may not play some part in acne. When your liver gets overloaded with toxins it'll send the toxins out through your skin as well as other organs of elimination.

Essential fatty acids are particularly important to people with inflammatory conditions such as eczema and acne. 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.

Concentrating on a diet, of mostly fruits and vegetables (preferably uncooked), and no junk food, should give you an observable improvement in your skin within 30 days. Get plenty of sunshine on your arms and legs; sunshine triggers the production of Vitamin D3 which is essential to having healthy skin. Eat foods that contain essential fatty acids.

Good nutrition will help your skin from the inside out. Eating foods with essential fatty acids are particularly important to people with dry skin or acne.

Analyze all the acne treatments available and make the best decision for you, based on your circumstances. 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. Don't give up - try everything you can until you get relief from your acne.
