Amongst the eat healthier, exercise more, volunteer more
resolutions, there would be a number of people who finally decide to join the
“go to natural” movement this new year 2019. The reason for this is that more
and more people are beginning to realize natural remedies/products are just as
effective as chemical products. Plus there is the added benefit of minimal to
no side effects and more synergistic interaction with your internal functions
to produce better sustainable results. As such the use of natural skin care
products/remedies for the treatment of acne is on the rise.
Ever heard the saying ‘we are what we eat’? There is a
certain level of truth in that statement. Most food produce grown in America in
recent years contain pesticides on skin surfaces, antibiotic and growth
hormones injected into animal produce. For those already prone to acne, this
only serves to exacerbate their skin condition as this worsens their hormonal
imbalance (the true cause of chronic acne). Going organic not only helps to
alleviate the severity of acne but also eliminates the amount of harmful
chemicals consumed. In addition, deciding to include certain veggies and fruits
to your diet will also aid your body in repairing your skin’s health. For more
information on some veggies you can include in your diet, check out 9 acne fighting foods found in your salad. One
example of a vegetable that aids your body in fighting off skin infection and
inflammation is lettuce. This is due to the amount of nutrients/ vitamins
contained in this veggie. There are a number of foods you can include in your
diet that would be beneficial to both your skin and total health. As such,
there is something for everyone and there is no need to force yourself to eat
something you do not like.
During winter, the humidity drops
which in turn dries out the skin. The body attempts to compensate for this by
increasing the amount of sebum produced to moisturize both the skin and hair.
In some cases, the sebaceous gland becomes overstimulated and produces too much
sebum resulting in winter acne. To avoid this, moisturize every
time you wash your face or any time you notice your skin is dry. It is
especially important to use a mild non-comedogenic moisturizer for acne prone skin
types so as not to clog the pores.
Both people who have acne prone skin and those who do not
are likely to be affected by certain external factors if their skin care
routine is handled improperly. Below are a few skin care tips:
Stress has also been shown to be an influencing factor as
most people tend to break out more when stressed. This is due to the hormones
the body produces when we are stressed, this causes an hormonal imbalance that
can exacerbate acne. Yoga and meditation have been known to reduce stress, hence
you can include this in your schedule.
For those suffering
from chronic acne, the best option is to go after the true cause of the acne
which is the over stimulation of the sebaceous gland caused by the excess
production of the androgen hormone. Acnease is used in this instance to stabilize
this production and help your body reach its natural balance. As this is an
internal process that gently guides your system, it would take anywhere from a
few weeks to a few months for balance to be reached. During this waiting
period, you should only use non-comedogenic foundations and concealers
that were formulated for acne prone skin to reduce the appearance of acne.
These products are airy, creamy and light, thus reducing the chances of clogged
