Acne Prone? Clear it Up!

According to the American Academy of Dermatology acne has become most commonly treated skin abnormality. What causes acne? If sebum flows faster than it can secret through the pores, a pimple arises. Acne is a skin disease commonly found and experienced  during adolescence. As a child goes through puberty they may have a breakout or two. Typical features of acne include: scaly red skin, blackheads and white heads, pimples, large papules and, possibly scarring.
Acne breakouts vary from person to person. Acne occurs mostly during adolescence, sometimes it continues into adulthood. In adolescence, acne is usually caused by an increase in androgens (male sex hormones) These hormones stimulate the production of keratin and sebum. For the most part, acne breakouts stop after one reaches their early twenties. There is no way to know the time it will take for acne to disappear.

Some people will carry acne well into their thirties, forties, and beyond. Acne vulgaris (or cystic acne) is a common human skin disease, characterized by areas of skin with seborrhea (scaly red skin), comedones (blackheads and white heads), pin heads, pustules (pimples), large papules and possibly scarring. Acne affects mostly skin with the densest population of sebaceous follicles; these areas include the face, the upper part of the chest, and the back. Severe acne is inflammatory, but acne can also manifest in other forms. The lesions are caused by changes in pilosebaceous units, skin structures consisting of a hair follicle and its associated sebaceous gland, changes that require androgen stimulation.
Factors that contribute to acne are, hormonal imbalance, oily skin, heredity, monthly menstrual cycles, nutritional deficiencies, stress, drug use, some skin products  and clogged pores. The skin is the largest organ of the body. Its primary function is to eliminate toxic waste through sweating. Some doctors call the skin ‘ The third kidney’. Clogged pores from oils, dirt, from pollution from the environment, junk food and not drinking enough water. In order to combat this problem, Use proper skin products to cleanse properly.

It’s SPA TIME! Yummy Facials In The Kitchen

Ladies and Gentlemen get your grocery list ready. It’s on!

 

 

We can learn a great deal from the past! We have all seen the beautiful skin of men and women from back in the day. I’m talking about 30 years ago and before then. Take a look at almost any photograph of that period. Their skin was like buttah. That was a long time ago but we can bring the goodness back.

 

Truth is, our skin IS like buttah too when we take care of it right. Most people of this information age never learned how detrimental eating processed and fast foods are to their entire physical make up.

 

To heal your skin overnight start here:

 

1. DRINK WATER

2. STOP SMOKING

3. EAT LOTS of FRUIT AND VEGETABLES

4. DRINK LESS ALCOHOL OR STOP DRINKING ALCOHOL

5. SLEEP FOR 7-8 HOURS

6. STOP EATING LATE

7. NO FRIED FOODS

8. LEAVE THE HIGH FRUCTOSE SYRUP ALONE

9. GET ACTIVE AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST

10. WASH THE FACE DAILY ESPECIALLY IN THE A.M.

 

My mother used to tell me and my sisters to use natural things on our skin. To keep up clear skin usually requires a dual effort. You can clean skin on the outside, but for skin to stay clear the inside of the body needs to be cleansed too.

 

The kitchen isn’t just for preparing or cooking food anymore. Now you can get a beauty treatment at home. Sure it’s not the relaxing spa. That’s alright, look on the bright side: We can get fly in the kitchen!

 

After careful review of the most delicious ways to take care of the skin I have answers. Plus many of these have been tried and tested by me or people I know.

 

The best facials use all mineral, plant and vegetable sources. All benefits and no side effects is what a facial or skin treatment should be. However there are so many man-made products with chemicals in them that i will not waste time listing them. Just know, if you cannot read the labels there may be chemicals in it! If you plan on using these lab created products, you better make sure your skin is like resistant to junk.

 

 

Amazingly enough, Mother nature has thought of everything. All we need to take care of us and our families can be found in nature. All 100% Raw plant sources have a purpose. These magical gifts from nature also have the power to soothe or renew skin problems for ex: acne, oily skin, dry skin and skin discoloration to name a few.
