Getting Rid of Acne Without Using Any Creams or Medication

Feb 4, 2008
Acne can be an extremely annoying condition, especially since its main target is young adults and teens, which are prone to suffer more from the effects of acne, due to their social status.

If you ever had to deal with acne yourself (and I'm assuming you did, since you're reading this) you know how difficult it is to get rid of it and you probably tried dozens of different anti-acne creams and lotions, gulped down dozens of natural and prescribed pills and still, the effects are not entirely visible.

The problem is that most of the information teaching you how to get rid of acne will emphasize on these creams and medications, but won't spend too much time talking about the basic things you can do by yourself to help reduce your problem. It's these factors that I'm going to talk about in the following article.

1.Keeping You Skin Clean

Although the sebaceous gland is the one responsible for producing the pus in pimples, it's the bacteria inside the skin that trigger acne and help it spread around.

Keeping your skin clean constantly is won't cure the acne entirely, but it will cut down the odds of it spreading on the rest of your skin and it will also reduce the condition's chance of becoming severe.

Even if you're using some sort of anti-acne cream, keeping your skin clean shouldn't be something to forget about.

2.Eating Right

There are a couple of products out there that can help you reduce the amount of sebum produced by your sebaceous glands, but if you don't want to fill up on medicine, having a proper diet is crucial.

Focus on foods that have a lot of Vitamin A (spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes, apricots, etc) and Vitamin B (cereals, most vegetables, sweet corn, rice, berries, etc), since these help regulate your hormones and sebum production.

3.Avoiding Hormonal Earthquakes

Over production of hormones will encourage acne growth and you'll want to bring hormonal production to decent levels if you want to stop the condition from causing more problems.

If you're under constant stress either due to work, school or social issues, you may want to try some relaxation techniques such as Yoga to help you out. Exercising is also beneficial, so whenever you get the chance to get a couple of laps done, try to channel your energy that way.

Lastly, avoid foods and drinks that cause hormonal increase, such as caffeine, dairy products, cooked carbohydrates and acid forming meat.

These foods will also produce extra toxins in your body, which will eventually want to get out through your skin. When they hit a hair follicle blocking their path, toxins build up and together with the sebum produced by your body, they will create acne comedones.

Provided that you can respect these three basic rules, getting rid of acne is definitely an achievable goal.

However, you need to follow them on a constant long term basis, not just for a couple of days, or you'll be right back from where you left in no time.
