Personally, I hate using acne medications and I'm willing to bet that you do too. Most of them dry your skin out and cause your skin to turn red. Many of the more popular treatments have side effects that are even worse then that. Some can even cause hair lose. I don’t know about you, but I like my hair just the way it is right now. The good news is that you can treat acne naturally.
The Main Cause Of Acne
One of the main causes of acne is a build up of toxins inside your body. Your body will attempt to remove those toxins from your body. One of the ways it removes those toxins is through your skin. For some people this comes out of your skin as acne. These bad toxins can come out of your body in other parts of your body too. It all depends on the person.
Use Natural Skin Care Products
Natural skin care products are a must. Lots of these skin care products put toxins into your body. Too many skin care products have lots of chemicals in them that will go straight into your pores. Shampoos, hair gels, and hair sprays can do this too. The products you use need to be products that have no chemicals in them at all. Do not take their word for it. Look to see what sort of ingredients are found in particular products.
Kill The Sugar
Almost all of us have a bit of sweat tooth in us. That sweat tooth needs to be controlled. This isn't just because sugar is bad for you and because too much of it can make you fat. Sugar creates problems by clogging up your digestive system and that leads to more greasy looking skin. We all know what oily skin leads too. Keep your sugar intake to a minimum. Of course you should still treat yourself to something once and awhile so that you don't splurge.
Reduce Your Caffeine Intake
Caffeine is a great way to mess with your hormones. Coffee and chocolate are major sources of caffeine that need to be avoided. The problem with too much caffeine is that it has an effect on how well you can sleep. A good night sleep is very important for keeping your acne away. You should also know that the hormone that it really aggravates is the stress hormone. This is a problem because stress is a cause of acne.
As you can tell there is allot to this hole acne skin care thing. But if you follow these tips you should see a big improvement in your acne problems.
