Imagine waking up from your morning slumber and knowing that you have that
school prom, that date, or a special event later that evening. You head to the mirror
and see the zit on your chin. You see another on your cheek. You freak out, and you
try to mask it with something, like make-up or a cream. You hope it vanishes by the
time of the special event. You get stressed over it. It seems to get worse. This is
familiar in many households, even on a daily basis.
Your body is a smart machine, able to handle complex problems and situations. But
with many situations, they can be quite stressful. Stress in the body is nature’s way
to know that you are alive. But stress for long periods may cause an array of
problems, such as Acne.
When in stress, the body produces the “flight or fight” response, where we would be
running away from beasts, or fighting to protect ourselves. Well that was in our
historical times, unless you are currently located in the Amazon. But in our modern
21 st century living, we have more pressures than our ancestors, such as worry,
anger, those pesky exams, that awful boss, or the pressures at work or college.
Stress can trigger breakouts and acne. It can also be like a merry-go-round when the
breakouts and acne can cause its own stress, which then would trigger more
breakouts. It doesn’t help when people are in stress, and their lifestyle habits can
make the skin problem worse, such as junk food, irregular sleeping patterns and
reduction in exercising.
When the body is in a state of long-term stress, it isn’t helped by the hormone
Cortisol, which is released when the body is in its ‘flight or fight’ mode. Usually it
depletes when we are back to balance, but with our modern lives, it can run through
our blood longer than it should. Another hormone, Testosterone, which are a class of
male sex hormones called androgens, can trigger acne by over-stimulating the oil
glands. The oil is sebum, the skin’s natural oil. But if there is too much of it, follicles
become clogged, pimples could appear. It’s the cortisol and androgens that are
secreted by the endocrine system in response to stress.
In some people, when exercising strenuously, such as weight training, testosterone
levels can increase, to fuel strength and muscle growth. This may cause an over
stimulation of the body’s oil-producing glands, and pimples could emerge.
There can be an easier way to combat the stresses in your life and see an
improvement in your skin at the same time. Taming your skin can be easy with what Natural Acne Treatment has to offer. Tame the vicious cycle of stress induced or hormone induced
acne for healthier and clearer skin.
We have all been there, trying to get fit and healthy, go to the gym, workout, but to
only leave pimples on the face, shoulders, chest and back. Then the increase of
cortisol, from further over-stimulation and stress, does not help. The botanical based
products in AcnEase do ease the stress and suffering and have a therapeutic effect
on the body, to reduce inflammation for the skin. To allow the botanical ingredients to
work in synergy for all ages.
Many around the world are now starting to use herbal botanicals to combat their
health issues or complaints. With skin care, from the inside out, AcnEase works on
the endocrine system to balance the impact of hormones on the production of
sebum, to create a clearer skin, and to prevent future breakouts. From mild to severe
acne, there is confidence in every bottle. A few specially chosen botanicals are used
in synergy in the products to create health and vigor in a holistic approach. The Dandelion (Herba Taraxaei) is a herb that combats inflammation and may reduce
and prevent boils and pimples, and it eliminates toxins in the blood. Another fantastic
botanical is the Gardenia Fruit (Fructus Gardeniae). Traditionally known in Chinese
medicine, Gardenia Fruit helps to remove toxins, natural diuretic, and is cleansing
and anti-inflammatory. The Balsam Pear is used to help with the body’s
management of carbohydrates and sugars, and is rich in vitamin A and C, which is
important for skin health.
The best treatment for stressed skin and hormonal acne is to be more present in
your life, such as meditation and yoga. To refrain from worry and anger. What also is
beneficial are the botanical products of AcnEase. Tablets to suit all ages and skin
types, with help for mild to chronic acne. Even for the athlete who has seen a change
of androgen levels in their body. Even though the body may take time to heal and
balance itself, AcnEase is that step closer.
