Acne Treatment And Holistic Medicine

Feb 11, 2008
Acne is really an internal condition which can be effected by a number of external factors. It also shows itself in an external way with the appearance of spots and soreness of the skin. You need to learn about what external factors affect and trigger your acne, if you can do this then you have a much better chance of bringing your acne under control. This is very important because if the acne is not brought under control, holistic acne treatments are not going to be as effective.

Skin cleansers are commonly available over the counter from your chemist, they normally claim to be able to help with exfoliation and medicate the skin. However if these products contain benzoyl peroxide, they can sometimes cause more irritation and allergy reactions.

You can use a soap which is based on tea tree oil which has mild antiseptic properties as well. Using these type of products can help in reducing the swelling, soreness and inflammation of the affected areas of the skin. By doing this you are also avoiding the irritation and allergic reactions that other products can bring.

Steaming your face five minutes before washing should become part of your daily routine if you'd like to have a positive long term effective on your acne. First of all make sure you use some lukewarm water to wet the soap. Then apply the soap to the face in a circular motion gently using your fingertips. Wash the face very carefully and gently pat your kin down using a dry cotton towel. Please note that over washing your face can sometimes lead to further irritation of your skin so be careful with this.

A great tip for sufferers of acne is to try and improve their intake of pure water. Drinking 10 glasses of water a day can really help not only in your skin care but also for your overall health. This is commonly known as a way of internally improving your acne as it can help balance the oil secretion of the body.

As far as external skin factors are concerned, these tend to be more widely available in the form of creams and gels. In particular you should try to find aloe vera creams which are known to have a good effect on acne and are available widely. If you can, try to use a cream together with regularly steaming and washing your face for the best results.

People often wonder what the exact causes of acne are, however they are quite hard to define because acne affects people in different ways. However it is known that hormonal imbalances can lead to the sebaceous glands producing too much oil, which leads to their being an excess of oil on the surface of the skin opening up the pores as well. Firstly avoid astrigents which are water and alcohol based. An alternative is to use a naturally created product for example neutrogena clear pore oil controlling astrigent. This product can have a very good effect on your acne affected skin.

If you are someone who has sensitive skin, then the best thing to do is to try out each treatment prior to using it fully. Just use a very small amount on a small area of skin, by doing this you will be able to work out if the treatment will cause you problems if you were to use it on larger areas that are affective by acne. Also remember that there are now holistic medicine and acne treatments to control your acne which are available below.
