Drink water to treat acne
2007-08-22 15:21:00
Drinking sufficient water is of vital importance to our skin. By drinking sufficient water, it will help us to shed dead skin cells and facilitate the growth of new skin. Water has been considered to be one of the best natural remedy to treat acne scars. This is because 80% of our blood swims in water. When the blood flows within our body, the water that the blood soaks in, helps to fight off the matters that promote the growth of acne. Moreover, water helps to carry oxygen and nutrient to our internal body, keeping our organs (skin is the body's largest organ) healthy and able to fight acne. The benefits of water in acne prevention and treatments are numerous, but it's important to take note that everything must be consumed in moderation and this include water as well. The general rule of thumb is to drink at least 8 glasses of plain water everydaySources: 1, 2, 3

Acupuncture acne treatment
2007-07-08 07:58:00
Acupuncture may be helpful in the treatment of acne. Several preliminary studies have reported that a series of acupuncture treatments (8 to 15) is markedly effective or curative in 90 to 98% of patients. Besides traditional Chinese acupuncture using needles alone, a technique called "cupping" is frequently used in the treatment of acne. Cupping refers to the use of cup-shaped instruments to apply suction to the area being needled. Two preliminary trials of cupping treatment for acne reported marked improvement in 91 to 96% of the study participantsSource: 1

Zinc helps treat acne
2007-07-07 17:20:00
Zinc is important nutrient in the management of skin conditions and may assist in healthy tissue regeneration. It has been shown that acne sufferers tend to have lower zinc levels than non-suffers, so it may be wise to introduce zinc mineral supplement to the diet. Oysters contain more zinc per serving than any other food, but red meat and poultry provide the majority of zinc in the American diet. Other good food sources include beans, nuts, certain seafood, whole grains, fortified breakfast cereals, and dairy products.Sources: 1, 2, 3

Iodine-rich foods cause acne
2007-07-07 14:16:00
Iodine-rich foods, such as liver, cheese, iodized salt, kelp products, clams, crabs and other shellfish have been associated with acne and they should be avoided. Iodine is also often used in commercial breads and in processing milk. Thus acne sufferer should consider switching to alternate products. If you use a lot of iodized salt, you should switch to balanced sea salt which you can find at gourmet or health food stores.Source: 1

Honey mask
2007-06-29 09:30:00
Apply a honey mask to your face once or twice a week. Honey has always been known for its antiseptic qualities – housewives have been applying it to scalds and wounds for years. It’s also rich in vitamins. Honey's antibacterial properties is great for disinfecting and healing minor blemishes. Moreover, it's gentle to sensitive skin. I recommend a simple face-mask: 2tsp plain yoghurt, 1tsp runny honey, and 1tsp oats. Rub into the face and leave to dry. Remove with a hot, damp cloth. The yoghurt cleanses, and the oats exfoliate.Source: 1, 2

Vitamin A reduce sebum production
2007-06-29 05:39:00
Sebum plays the biggest role in formation of acne. If there were no sebum, there would be no acne. Vitamin A may help to reduce sebum production. However, high doses of vitamin A can carry a risk of decreased bone density, birth defects, headache, and muscle and joint pain. Vitamin A supplementation may not be necessary if there is adequate intake of beta-carotene, vitamin E, and zinc, all necessary for vitamin A formation. Decreasing unhealthy fats such as margarine, hydrogenated oils, processed foods, and other sources of transfats can also improve absorption. The top ten vitamin A-rich foods are: liver, sweet potatos, carrots, mangoes, spinach, cantaloupe, dried apricots, milk, egg yolks, mozzarella cheese. Take note that alcohol, coffee, or excessive iron can all deplete your body's supply of this essential vitamin.Sources: 1, 2, 3

Caffeine cause acne
2007-06-28 15:29:00
According to some experts, caffeine-containing foods and beverages can cause or worsen acne. This may be more of an inference by association, however, as the link between the aggravation of rosacea (sometimes called adult acne), a type of skin inflammation in adults not related to acne, can be traced to food sensitivities or allergies associated with caffeine-containing foods. It is also possible that the processed sugar in caffeinated soft drinks aggravates acne. Others claim that acne and rosacea are not worsened by the caffeine contained in certain foods but by the flushing effect of ingesting hot beverages, which can make the conditions look worse.

Mini fast to treat acne
2007-06-28 14:52:00
24 hours a day the body attempts to eliminate waste products, but is often hampered by the piling in of harmful foods. When you eat you actually stop the body cleansing process. This is because it now has to work on digesting new food. This is why fasting is good - it basically let your body cleanse itself. Every good thing has to be taken in moderation. Though fasting has its benefits, you need food to survive! What some people suggest is to have a mini fast. Try to have mini fast for your breakfast. Have one type of fruit for breakfast. This will slow down the cleansing process but still allow it to continue to a degree. Oranges are best. Have only one type of fruit. Not apples and oranges, not grapefruit and orange juice. Just one type of food for this breakfast mini fast. What I have learned from this mini fast acne treatment technique is that don't eat too much unnecessary food, as it affect our body cleansing process. It make sense why Muslim say they fast to cleanse their bo...

Benzoyl peroxide for acne treatment
2007-06-27 14:15:00
Benzoyl peroxide is an effective and inexpensive form of acne treatment. It is usually applied over the affected areas in gel or cream form, in concentrations of 2.5% increasing through the usually effective 5% to up to 10%. Research suggests that 5 and 10% concentrations are not significantly more effective than 2.5% and 2.5% is usually better tolerated. It's important to take note that Benzoyl Peroxide kills bacteria, but does not increase the body's resistance to it, nor does it affect sebum production. Therefore, it is important to continue treatment even after the desired results have been achieved.Sources: 1, 2, 3, 4
