During my career as a registered nurse, I learned a lot through the years about acne, acne scars, and acne treatments. Natural treatment methods are always a better choice for acne due to less exposure to drugs and chemical-laden acne products. By their mid-teens, nearly 35% of teenagers have acne severe enough to require some treatment from a medical professional.
While almost all young people experience acne at least once, it has been reported that 47% of those in their 20s and 30% of those in their 30s had acne. Acne is most common in teenagers and young adults. Acne is the most common skin disease.
Acne rosacea is a red rash predominantly on the face. The most common type of acne is acne vulgaris. The cause of acne is really unknown. It's not true that dirty skin and stress cause acne. Understanding that hormones may have some influence on the cause of acne needs to be considered. For a good acne treatment, that has worked for many, try applying virgin coconut oil daily, but on a small test area first.
You want to avoid squeezing, pinching, or picking your pimples because it can cause scars or dark spots on the skin. One good natural method is to apply a thin layer of coconut oil and massage it deep into the skin to heal and soothe it. Try not to touch your skin to eliminate possible contamination. It's easy to treat acne cheaply, simply, naturally, yet effective, at home. Raw apple cider vinegar application is a cheap, alternative acne treatment that has worked for many adults, teens and children with acne, zits, pimples, or blemishes. Coconut oil is very inexpensive, therefore, a good, cheap home remedy.
A number of treatments are currently available to remove or improve acne scars. Acne scars result from increased tissue formation, response to the inflammation of acne and loss of tissue. Healed acne leaves scars in some people however, and it isn't easy to predict who will end up with scars after an acne outbreak and who won't. The liver sluffs off toxins from bad foods, drinks, drugs and chemicals and sends them through your skin resulting in skin eruptions, acne, pimples and other skin disorders.
In any case, no matter what skin or acne treatment you choose, whether it is chemical, drugs, alternative, or natural methods, changing your diet will result in your overall good health! Drink lots and lots of pure, filtered water. Some alternative doctors recommend eating raw cloves of garlic daily for acne. Eat high-fiber snacks like raw nuts, raw seeds, and dried fruit, such as dates, and figs. Consider taking cod liver oil or fish oil supplements every day. Eat at least one organic apple with the skin on every day. Unclean skin favors the development of pathogenic organisms - the dead cells that continually slough off of the epidermis mix with the secretions of the sweat and sebaceous glands and the dust found on the skin to form a filthy layer on its surface.
Many skin conditions can be converted into healthy skin using natural home remedies. Pick two or three home remedies or natural treatments and try them out on your skin carefully. With cheap, safe, simple, natural, effective, alternative home treatments for acne and pimples, your skin should be well on its way to recovery. And you should be able to get rid of your acne, zits and pimples and their symptoms, providing you've removed the cause, so it doesn't reoccur.
