Acne has been linked to a number of things, including diet. Sometimes the foods you eat are directly responsible for your acne. Acne is a common skin condition that affects most people at some point. It causes spots, oily skin and sometimes skin that’s hot or painful to touch.
Other times it is a hormonal imbalance that causes acne and other problems in your body. Still other times acne can be caused by certain medications you are taking.
Often it is best to seek the advice of a professional when you are dealing with a problem like this. Do not just stick to the tips given here. Seek help from someone who has experience in handling acne and who has seen acne from all sides and all types.
We have all heard of the importance of eating the right foods to support your body
You should consider these foods when treating your acne. The first one that needs to be addressed is the proper diet of your animal products. If you are eating meat that has come from an animal that has had its fur treated with a fur-safe product, you may need to avoid eating meat.
Many of the foods we eat contain growth hormones. Growth hormones cause changes in your body that are all too common in those with acne. They stimulate oils to be produced and also cause oil glands to produce more oil. This can cause clogged skin pores and acne.
Another one of the foods you need to avoid eating is those containing gluten. If you have acne and have recently had gluten added to your diet, you may want to steer clear of foods containing it. Gluten is a type of protein that is found in foods such as bread, portions of pasta, and even milk.
Your body needs amino acids to produce proteins. A good thing about protein is that it builds healthy skin. Therefore you will not want to eliminate protein from your diet as a way to treat your acne. Instead, you should look for alternatives.
Your diet should contain fruits and vegetables as well as some meats. Although they do not have the same effect as protein, vitamins and minerals are good for your skin. Many times the foods we consume also contain vitamins and minerals that are crucial to health.
What you need to avoid to keep your face safe from Acne
You don’t need to be washing the affected areas of skin more than twice a day. Frequent washing can irritate the skin and make symptoms worse. Washing the affected area with a mild soap or cleanser and lukewarm water. Very hot or cold water can make acne worse.
You must avoid using too much make-up and cosmetics. Use water-based products that are described as non-comedogenic (this means the product is less likely to block the pores in your skin). Complete removal of make-ups before going to bed will also help
Always endeavour to exercise in other to improve your acne, this can boost your mood and improve your self-esteem. Shower as soon as possible once you finish exercising, as sweat can irritate your acne
Sleep is very important in the treatment of acne
If you do not get enough sleep, it will take a long time to repair the damage caused by acne. Get enough sleep so you can build stronger skin and prevent future breakouts.
There are numerous remedies that you can try. One that has been around for years is tea tree oil. You can rub it into your acne and let it dry. It has many properties that make it helpful.
Other common household items that can be used are garlic, aloe vera, sandalwood, mint and other herbs. If you do not have these in your home, ask your doctor if they can recommend a herbal remedy. I personally have found tea tree oil to be very effective. Just use it in the morning and it will get rid of acne in less than two weeks.
Other natural approaches include drinking lemonade or green tea. Drinking lemonade can help fight off toxins and it is a great natural remedy. Green tea contains substances that help treat acne. In addition, grapefruit juice also has many health benefits.
Finally, get rid of your acne. Do not wait another day. Use whatever natural approach works for you and see results in a matter of days.
