Acne - Want To Get Rid Of It?

Man I hate acne! I had it bad as a teenager, and know all to well the embarrassment, this painful disease can cause. I mean life would be good if it weren't for that big zit on your nose, right? Acne is a disease, and it's incurable, if you have it you will always have it (most people do!) Keep in mind you in no way caused  your acne, it's not caused by eating the wrong foods or not showering enough, it's a disease. It's cause is open to debate, could it be the excess hormones raging through your body during your teenage years, or perhaps genetics? Anyway, it sucks and you have it! OK I have an incurable now what can I do? Well the symptoms of most cases of acne can be controlled and many times eliminated using all natural homeopathic treatments. That's right, if you don't have severe acne which is characterized by cysts and nodules deep in the skin with obvious scaring involved, your acne symptoms may be controlled through proper diet, hygiene, and supplements. In the case of severe acne I would suggest a trip to your Dermatologist who may prescribe medicines to treat it.


Diet - To Help Control Your Acne

The proper diet to help control your acne out-breaks should consist of plenty of fruits and beatable, drink plenty of fluids on a daily basis including fruit juices. Eat foods made with whole grains as opposed to highly processed foods, Include protein in your diet mostly from fish and chicken (not fried, or fried in olive oil if you must.) Eat fiber rich foods to help cleanse your body.

Foods To Stay Away From

Things to keep out of your diet would include hydrogenated and/or saturated fats, processed foods, foods loaded with sugars (no matter what kind-their all bad), sodas and soft drinks, artificial sweeteners, the higher fat dairy products, red meats (unless it's really lean), iodine rich foods (most seafoods, iodized salt, liver-this one should be easy!), chocolate (I know I love chocolate too), excess amounts of carbs, and limit the number of eggs you eat to say four a week.

Supplements That Can Help Stop Out-Breaks Of Acne

  • Beta-Carotene
  • Zinc
  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids
  • Pantothenic Acid
  • Vitamin E
  • Flaxseed Oil

Other Things You Should Do To Help Control Your Acne

Gently clean the affected areas with an acne soap. Notice I said GENTLY! Scrubbing your acne affected skin will not help, it will only damage your skin more. The oils come from within your body! Steaming daily can help. Avoid wearing make-up, failing this be sure to use a "noncomedogenic" make-up. Keep hair spray off your skin! Don't "pop" your zits. Squeezing hard on your pimples, whiteheads, or blackheads can cause damage under your skin, pushing the infection even deeper. Try to reduce the stress in your life! Relax and try not to get "worked-up". Cut out caffeine and any other stimulants.Get some exercise everyday (it's a great stress reducer!)
