Natural Acne Remedies
By Steve Wilcott
Some adults and teens who suffer from acne may refer to try cures that are natural instead of pharmaceutical. Here are some natural acne remedies.
One of the first things that a natural practitioner will tell you is that it's what's inside that counts. Although most dermatologists will tell you that what you eat has no effect on your skin, a healthy diet can have positive effects on your skin, as well as your life in general. Follow sensible guidelines. Drink six glasses of water a day. Try to find organic produce. Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Broil you food. Avoid fried foods. Eat fiber rich foods such as lentils and beans. Limit your alcohol intake. Go light on the caffeine, only two cups of tea or coffee a day. Stay away from sodas, too much sugar and caffeine. Along with a glowing and radiant complexion you might shed a few pounds along the way!
To go along with a healthier diet supplements are suggested. Here are some supplement suggestions. A good daily multi vitamin. Vitamin C. An antioxidant blend of A, C, E, zinc, selenium. A fatty acid supplement such as primrose oil or fish oil. It is suggested that you talk with a qualified nutritionist to help with deciding what supplements you should take.
Now you've taken care of the inside, there is work to do on the outside. Have a facial monthly. This will help keep your skin healthy and glowing. Your aesthetician will help you to identify your skin type and make recommendations about cleansers and moisturizers. This facial should include an exfoliation. If you suffer from acne as an adult you will still need to keep your skin moisturized. Make sure that you use an SPF on your skin everyday.
There is no such thing as an overnight cure for acne. Keep in mind that any treatment takes time. A healthy diet, added nutritional supplements and a well thought out cleaning regimen will help. Give any program you start on at least 6 to 8 weeks to show results.
