If you have ever been embarrassed to post your photos on
social media because of your acne, or you have edited or cropped a photo
to try and hide your acne, you are not alone. 50% of teens who use social media
and have had acne say they have done the same. Acne is common among both men
and women of all ages, but even more so among teenagers. This is because teenagers
experience hormonal changes at puberty, which upset
the delicate balance of hormones in the body and cause acne.
As a teenager with acne, you already
struggle a lot, and you have probably used a lot of over-the-counter drugs,
ointments and serums, probably even some prescription treatments. Still, those
pesky pimples won’t stop popping up and leaving craters on your face and body.
What if you were offered a completely safe, all-natural and effective product that
could eradicate all traces of your acne completely in less than a month? Would
you be interested?
We believe that
education is the first step towards clear skin. So, to help you solve your
problem, we will first show you what exactly acne is, and why
you have it.
Acne is a manifestation of an internal imbalance in
hormones. It is caused by secretion of male
or ‘androgenic’ hormones, which usually become active during teenage years. This
secretion causes the sebaceous glands to overproduce sebum (skin oil). Combined
with dirt, this extra sebum creates an ideal condition for bacteria to thrive,
resulting in inflammation in form of pimples, cysts etc.
It commonly shows up on the face,
chest, shoulders, and back. Acne may be mild
(few and occasional pimples), moderate (inflammatory papules), or severe
(nodules and cysts).
To prevent your mild acne from damaging
your skin further, follow these tips:
Don’t pick at your face. In fact, try not to touch it at
all. Each time you touch it, you are at risk of transferring bacteria to your
face, and you don’t want that.
Make Healthier Choices: You don’t have to
change your entire way of life. Simply exercising more, eating less spicy and
greasy foods, eating more fish, fresh fruits and green vegetables, and avoiding
stress will go a long way in reducing your flare-ups. If you are allergic to gluten
or dairy, eradicate them from your diet completely. They will only create imbalances
in the body and aggravate acne.
Clean your face gently, so that you don’t worsen the acne or cause
scarring. When washing your face, use only your hands or soft cotton pads. Any
scrubbing material may rupture acne sores.
Use only light moisturizers which do not clog pores and worsen acne.
Use a light oil-free foundation. Heavy makeup or other
cosmetic products that clog pores may cause an acne flare-up.
Always apply zinc-based sunscreen, even if you are
spending only a little time in the sun. Exposing active breakouts to the sun
can darken the irritated skin, making it more difficult for scars to fade.
moisturizing and anti-inflammatory treatments, you can try some home remedies
vera gel, witch hazel, honey and tea tree oil. These ingredients will also keep
your skin free of bacteria. They are all natural as well, so you don’t have to
worry about side effects. You can find lots of great DIY recipes for soothing
inflamed skin online. You
must be careful when using essential oils like tea tree though, as they are
highly potent and can end up damaging your skin if misused.
As much as
these remedies can work in the short term, you cannot depend on them for long
if you have acne-prone skin. By now, you must know that it is time to seek a
more holistic approach, one that fights acne from the inside. Continuing to
treat the symptoms without treating the underlying cause puts you in a vicious
cycle of having acne and treating it, over and over again.
AcnEase is a
high-quality blend of botanical ingredients that works from the inside to remove
the cause of acne and return your sebaceous glands to their normal performance.
This ensures that your skin gets balanced (no more acne).
The unique formula we have created is so effective that 96%
of users have reported success with it. Using a holistic two-part system, it does
what no other treatment does. It attacks the cause of acne at the beginning of
the acne cascade (in the sebaceous glands). This prevents acne from breaking
out at all, which is vital to breaking the acne cycle.
At the same time, it soothes and smoothes skin, so that
you start to see differences in the first week. It does all this without drying
out or irritating your
skin. There are no sun restrictions or side effects, making it completely safe
for anyone with any type of acne to use.
If you have mild acne, you will benefit most from the
Mild Acne Treatment package. The package is a full month’s treatment, but you
will see result in less than 10 days. With an ironclad money-back guarantee,
and at the cost of less than one Starbucks coffee per day, this treatment is a
steal for anyone with mild acne. You’ve really got nothing to lose!
