Natural Treatment of Acne Tips

Our first reaction is to panic from this embarrassing and burdensome problem and the overwhelming fear that you won’t have any control over your breakouts. But with a few simple tips this fear can be conquered.

Before calling for an appointment with the dermatologist, there are natural remedies that can be just as effective as medications. With the right nutritional balance and proper skin care is all your body needs. By following these simple tips you are taking the first steps to help heal your acne. In about 4 weeks you should see a noticeable difference.

Tips for Acne Free Skin:

Apply to honey mask – by applying this to your face one or twice a week, the antibacterial properties will disinfect and heal minor blemishes. This is great for those of us with sensitive skin.

Use acne soap – wash your face twice a day with a sulfur based soap specifically designed for acne. Get into a routine of washing your face when you first wake up in the morning and then again before going to bed. A gentle rotating motion is recommend and be cautious not to scrub your face. In addition, use a soft washcloth in place of one that is rough. Avoid overwashing your skin as this will encourage your sebaceous glands to produce more sebum, thus creating an increase in acne.

Clean hair – long hair or bangs are stylish but hair contains oils that can add to acne breakouts. Pull your hair off your face and wash it everyday and after sports or strenuous workouts.

Eat your carrots – if your mom’s also trying to get you to eat your carrots it’s because of the beat-carotene (Vitamin A). Vitamin A prevents acne by strengthening the protective tissue of the skin. This vitamin is crucial for the maintenance and repairs of tissue that skin and the mucous membranes are made of and helps reduce the production of sebum. Vitamin A, a powerful antioxidant, is needed to rid your body of toxins.

Take you vitamins – your skin is a vital organ that is usually neglected. Depending on nutrition, acne can be a signal that there is something wrong on the inside. When the body does not receive the proper nutrition it rebels by producing excessive sebum, clogging pores, and reduces the ability for your skin to fight bacteria and heal.

Makeup – many makeup products on the market today may contribute to clogging your pores thus causing more pimples and blackheads. Use a water-based makeup if you must wear makeup.

Avoid squeezing – resist the temptation to pick, squeeze, rub or touch your blackheads and pimples. These actions increase the sebum production and rupture the membrane below your skin. This can in turn cause an infection and spread the sebum underneath your skin resulting in more pimples.

Clean pillow case – when your face lies on your pillow case it is absorbing the oils from your skin and collects dirt and oil. Keeping your sheets and pillow cases clean will decrease breakouts.

Foods rich in Zinc – zinc are an antibacterial agent that is necessary element in the oil-producing glands of the skin. Diets low in zinc may actually cause acne breakouts.

Getting into a good skin care routine takes time and dedication. You will need patience as results will not happen overnight. But with time you should see positive results.

Professional and Home Remedies For Skin Pigmentation Treatment

Over a period of time, with age, our skin develops dark spots and pigmentation. This is a natural process of aging. That is exactly why our beauty care treatments should also include skin pigmentation treatments that help you age gracefully and prevent dark circles. Here are a few treatments that you can do yourself at home and some professional treatments that can be done at a reputed skin clinic.

Natural home remedies require patience and the effects are seen only after consistent and persistent efforts:

Papaya

Grate a papaya and extract the juice. Apply this juice to the pigmented area. You can even apply it to the entire face to get that shine and glow. Regularly apply this for about a month. You will begin to see amazing results. This is because the enzyme in papaya has properties that help remove dead cells. Every time you apply papaya juice, it removes dead cells and new cell generation gradually removes the pigmented parts.

Almond and milk

It is known that dryness is one of the causes of pigmentation. Removing the dryness is hence essential. Almond contains natural fatty acids. The nutrients present in almonds help nourish it. Milk is also known to be a lightening agent. For this treatment, soak almonds in milk overnight. Crush them into a paste. Apply this paste on the pigmented areas.

Guava and banana

The lycopene content of guava makes it a great treatment for darkening. Banana is also known for its lightening properties. Make a pulp by crushing guava and banana and apply on pigmented areas.

Avocados

Avocados are known to be rich in fatty acids, vitamin C and oleic acid. This makes them very good agents for rejuvenation and healing.

Cocoa butter

Cocoa butter can help soothe and heal the skin as it has antioxidant properties. Cocoa nourishes and helps prevent hyper pigmentation.

Castor oil

Castor oil and vitamin E leaves your skin smooth and silky. Vitamin E helps revive it.

The following remedies require specialists and you can go for them if all the home remedies fail. Make sure that you visit a well-known clinic for these treatments.

Three Important Steps To A Healthy Diet And Skin Free Of Acne

We are all witnesses of all kinds of theories about healthy nutrition. The internet is full of websites, blogs and forums that talk about healthy eating habits depending on which results you want. Whether you want to lose weight, gain some muscles or you have a specific health problem that you want to solve. It can all be found on the Internet.

By doing a lot of research I became aware of a fact that we really do not have to be nutritionists or any kind of experts to realise what is a healthy diet. And I am not talking here about balancing certain ingredients in order to resolve some special medical conditions. I am talking about obvious facts that can prevent most of that conditions.

I am personally not a fan of trying to implement radical changes in diet overnight. With that kind of approach a person has little to no chance to make any progress. Small and painless changes that are growing overtime and becoming a joyful habit is much better and has much more potential to stay and become a long-term habit and a way of life.

From my perspective, with all of the above said, the first step in diet changes should be eating raw fruits and vegetables, if a person eats them at all. If not, then that should be the first step. When talking about eating raw, I am not thinking about eating only carrots and lettuce all day. A few simple and obvious facts should be considered here. Where is the need to boil or fry certain foods that can be eaten in the form they come? It is scientifically proven a long time ago that high temperature destroys certain minerals and vitamins. It takes only 40 degrees for C vitamin to be destroyed. When we take that in mind, the obvious question we should ask ourselves is why it is commonly believed by most people how a soup made of vegetables such as carrots, broccoli or celery is good for human health, especially when dealing with a flu. Where does that belief come from? It should all be eaten raw. Where is the need to cook a carrot when it is fine just the way it is? Of course, vegetables like potato, corn and legumes must be boiled. Otherwise they can cause gallbladder pain which I know from my personal experience.

Second step should be avoiding any kind of dairy products. Here it is enough to consider where is the necessity and reasonableness to stop drinking milk as a baby and then switch on to drinking cows milk for the rest of your life?

In my opinion, the third step should be avoiding eating food that contains gluten. That includes wheat, oats and of course all bakery products. In almost every weight loss program that can be found, it is mentioned that bread is evil. Medical studies show that gaining weight is not the only bad result that comes from eating bakery products. It creates much havoc just like dairy products. Human body can not fully digest it so undigested parts of it remain in the body. To our immune system those parts look like a virus so it will generate certain complex reactions that damage different tissues in different people. It is no wonder that some professional athletes have given up on gluten a long time ago to ensure their best performances. Also, it seems that undigested parts of gluten have the same influence on our brains like opium so we are literally hooked on gluten! And the same thing happens when drinking milk.

It is medically proven that some skin diseases appear as a result of gluten intolerance. From my personal experience I can tell that some seemingly non serious skin problems, like acne, are also a visible result of eating gluten and chaos that it creates inside our bodies.
