How to Get Rid of Back Acne

How to Get Rid of Back Acne

The skin on the back is thicker than anywhere else on the body and contains many sebaceous glands situated just below the surface of the skin. Sebaceous glands continuously produce and secrete skin oil (sebum) through the openings (pores) in the skin. When too much sebum is produced, pores and hair follicles become clogged and together with dirt and bacteria, you have a recipe for acne.

Why Back Acne is Hard to Get Rid Of

How to Not Let Sugar Destroy Your Skin this Holiday Season

How to Not Let Sugar Destroy Your Skin this Holiday Season

The holidays are a time where many indulge in sugary things. From the holiday parties to intimate gatherings, there is so much temptation that it can sometimes be hard to avoid. But do know this! Sugar REALLY is bad for your skin and may exacerbate acne as well. Many people wonder why they can't break the cycle of acne - and this is one major cause.

 

Sugar is not just a part of cookies, candies, cakes or sodas, but it also can be found in almost every food in your refrigerator from mayo to Canadian bacon. The ingredient may not say "sugar", and be disguised as corn syrup (or a word that ends with "syrup"), fructose, lactose (or a word that ends in "ose"), fruit juice concentrate, sorbitol or xylitol. When you combine their rather overwhelming presence with foods that easily and rapidly convert into sugar like potatoes, pasta, crackers and potato chips, your skin can continually have issues.  Remember - sugarplums should dance in the Nutcracker, not on your table!

The SUPER HERBS that REALLY Fight Acne

There are a number of herbs that are good for your skin. But when you suffer from acne, good is not enough! You need SUPER herbs and skilled preparation to get a true natural medicine that actually works.

 

To exemplify how complex the science of herbs is:

 

As wine grapes yield a different quality and taste depending on where and how they are harvested, the similar rule applies, and is even magnified, with herbs. Different parts of the same herbs (leaves, root or stem) processed under different temperatures, and the method of extraction, may provide for totally different properties of a final product.
