Guide to Natural Acne Treatments
Acne is a problem for many people. There are a variety of
products that are designed to get rid of or reduce acne.
However, many people do not know that there are natural ways to
reduce acne, or completely eliminate it. The best way to
naturally get rid of pimples is to consider the causes of acne.
By avoiding the causes of acne, you can greatly reduce the
amount of acne you have.
Acne is caused by hormones. When trying to prevent acne it is
advisable to try to reduce your body's production of certain
hormones. The body produces a large amount of hormones in
stressful situations. People who are extremely stressed have an
overproduction of hormones. Relaxation techniques such as Yoga,
T'ai Chi and deep breathing can help reduce stress and limit
hormone production. Additionally, avoiding caffeine can help
because caffeine stimulates hormone production. Finally,
exercise is very beneficial for reducing acne. Exercise reduces
stress and works to rebalance hormones.
Diet is a very significant factor in the presence of acne.
Certain foods can foster the presence of acne. Consumption of
these types of foods should be reduced or completely avoided if
possible. Dairy products such as milk and cheese can contribute
to the formation of acne. Additionally, refined and cooked
carbohydrates such as flour, bread, and rice can also affect
acne. Other foods that should be avoided are cooked fats, such
as fried food, and meats
like beef and pork. The foods that
should be avoided are acid-forming foods in the body. In order
to reduce acne, you should attempt to eat more alkaline-forming
foods. Fresh vegetables, fruit, and nuts (sparingly) are very
good to eat when trying to reduce acne.
Dehydration is also a very important factor in the formation of
acne. The skin needs to be hydrated from the inside in order to
prevent blocked pores. Drinking great amounts of water is a good
practice when attempting to reduce acne. Eating water-rich foods
can also help with hydration.
Finally, avoiding yeast is a great practice for reducing acne.
Studies have shown that people with severe acne often have a
build-up of yeast in their bodies. In order to avoid yeast
build-up, you should avoid sugary foods and yeast products such
as beer, bread, and mushrooms.
Acne can be a large problem for many people, but there are
natural ways to reduce or eliminate pimples. Avoiding stress and
exercising regularly while eating healthy and avoiding greasy
foods can greatly reduce the amount of acne one has. After
trying the natural ways to reduce acne, then it is a good idea
to use acne medicines. But if medication can be avoided, you
will save money and be healthier.
