There are many ways in which you can treat your acne such as taking pills or creams but the safest way and most logical way is to turn to natural remedies for acne. This is one alternative to help combat against this unfortunate skin condition that is overlooked by many. The reason why is because everyone is drawn in by companies advertising the latest and greatest acne cures.
What causes acne? The most common way acne exists is through hormonal excesses and impurities. These impurities are filtered out of our bodies by our liver. When the liver gets over whelmed with toxins our bodies react unwanted problems such as acne. In addition the problem with many busy people today is that they eat too much “easy” foods, which includes: fast foods, high carb. foods and foods with a high yeast content. Eating such foods take longer to process which in-turn will bring more toxins to your blood stream causing acne.
Another way that some people treat acne is with a supplement known as Zinc. This particular supplement has been proven as yet another effective remedies; however, unlike tea tree oil, zinc can lead to serious health problems. So if you plan to take this supplement as a means of fighting your acne, simply discuss it with your doctor prior to taking any doses. Some other helpful tips include keeping your face clean and washing your hands prior to touching your face. Also most importantly, try not to pick at your breakouts. That is one of the most common problems. It is very tempting to pick at pimples; however, that is the first step towards permanent scarring. So if you suffer from acne, try applying some of these helpful hints to your daily routine.
If you suffer from acne, then you can go on and try a fiber-rich diet. The logic with this is much the same with why we should drink plenty of water. Our body also needs high-fiber food because, like water, fiber is very important because it rids the body of the skin-damaging toxins causing acne. With water, fiber serves as a natural inner-body cleanser for acne. Only some of the food that are high in fiber are fresh fruits like acai and fruits that are rich in skin-caring anti-oxidants and AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids) like strawberries, pineapple, and grapes.
Sometimes acne is painless and sometimes it becomes inflamed and itchy or red. To sooth acne irritation and to reduce the itchiness of the area you can put together a small package containing several different types of berries which can be heated for three minutes time, allowed to cool, and then placed upon the affected area. The berries for this cooled down hotpack include berries like strawberries and raspberries which can be mixed with some leaves from the blackberry bush. Berries are foods containing a lot of natural nutrients and plenty of antioxidants so they certainly prove soothing to one’s skin.
There are many products out there being advertised on TV, being sold at the pharmacy, and even some over the counter brands that promise relief. We’ve tried most of them and nothing worked very well. Some of them even mad the acne worse!
While shopping one day, I ran into a friend that I used to work with. She noticed my son’s acne and began asking us what “potions” we were using to try to control it. My son was embarrassed of course, and walked away. She apologized but then began telling me of her daughter’s journey to clear her acne. She introduced me to juice fasting as a therapeutic measure of healing and also discussed facial massaging techniques to properly cleanse the face. Right off I thought these methods were (good) because they were natural, cost little or nothing, and actually made sense.
You might also want to give some consideration to investing in an Aloe plant; aloe is well beloved for its superlative healing properties. Aloe plants are great for burn treatments, but they are superb for acne eruptions too where the skin is itchy, burning, sore and inflamed. You can even minimize issues with scarring when you regularly apply aloe to areas affected by acne eruptions too.
With more acne sufferers getting disappointing results with over the counter products and prescription medicines the tilt towards natural remedies for acne is increasing day by day. With an economic meltdown there is also more realization about the kind of money that is being spent on acne care. This is forcing people to make more rational and informed decisions.
Sometimes you may not even need to see a specialist as you can find out for yourself through online sites what you can use. However, serious cases of acne should be handled by a dermatologist or when you have tried treating it for some time without positive results. Most of the simple acne remedies are natural treatments and there is so much information, on how you can treat acne naturally, available online. Remedies
