From A Nurse - Get Rid Of Pimples Naturally Now

Aug 17, 2007
There is hope -- keep researching, learning and testing and you'll find the right treatment for you. Keeping your skin clear doesn't have to be a trying experience with so many cheaper natural treatments available today. Natural treatment methods are cheaper and always a better choice for acne due to less exposure to drugs and chemical-laden acne products.

Several factors have been suggested that may influence acne including diet, menstruation, sweating, UV radiation, stress, and occupation. While almost all young people experience acne at least once, it's been reported that 47% of those in their 20s and 30% of those in their 30s had acne. The most common types of pimples are whiteheads, blackheads, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts. Nearly 80 percent of people from ages 11 to 30 years have acne, most often on the face, chest and back.

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. Understanding that hormones may have some influence on the cause of acne is still being researched. If you've heard that dirty skin causes acne, it doesn't - it's a myth.

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. 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. Use baking soda on a test area carefully for exfoliation, if you feel you need it.

Coconut oil is one of the best, if not the best, treatments I've found for acne. Some natural home remedies include dabbing on non-gel toothpaste or lemon juice to dry out zits. Never underestimate the healing, restorative power of a good night's sleep.

If you wear make-up, choose it carefully; it should be oil free. It's easy to treat acne cheaply, simply, naturally, yet effectively, at home. It bears repeating, you want to be good to your skin and never pop or squeeze a pimple no matter how tempting.

Try relaxation techniques to reduce stress, including meditation and yoga breathing exercises. Acne prone, sensitive skin can get irritated by using astringents, skin toners, rubbing alcohol, facial masks, make-up and certain hair care products. There are many natural acne home remedies; you may have to try several to find one that works best for your skin type.

It's always best to seek non-invasive and natural treatment for any skin condition. Try applying a thin layer of coconut oil and massaging it deep into the skin to heal and soothe the affected area.

Drink lots and lots of pure, filtered water every day. Essential fatty acids are particularly important to people with inflammatory conditions such as eczema and 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!

The best acne treatment is a diet that will help the body eliminate waste; if you're eating the standard American diet (SAD) it'll be reflected in your skin. When your liver gets overloaded with toxins it'll send the toxins out through your skin as well as other organs of elimination.

Eat high-fiber snacks like raw nuts, raw seeds, fresh or dried fruit, such as dates, and figs. 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. Eat foods that contain essential fatty acids.

Get plenty of sunshine on your arms and legs; sunshine triggers the production of Vitamin D3 which is essential to having healthy skin. Good clear skin is often a reflection of a good digestive system.

You should see the results of your cheap acne home treatment remedies, with improved skin, within just a few days. Pick two or three cheap home remedies or natural treatments and try them out on your skin carefully. And you should be able to get rid of your acne, zits and pimples and their symptoms so it doesn't reoccur.
