Diet and Acne Treatment
Your diet can play a key role in treating and getting rid of acne, the foots we eat can contribute to oily skin and clogged pores leading to acne breakouts. Acne occurs when sebum or oil clogged the pores in our skin. Acne is prevalent among teenagers and pregnant women due to various hormonal changes. Anyone can be affected by this skin condition. Nevertheless, there are many treatments, products and medications that you may use in addressing acne.
Remember that any acne treatment would be futile if you have a poor nutrition plan, that is, if you continue consuming foods and drinks that can actually exacerbate your skin’s current condition. As such, one of the best treatments of acne is diet. Put simply, if you are unhealthy internally, this will be reflected on your external and what better way to manifest such healthiness than our skin, which is the largest organ in our body. With this, you may consider replacing junk food especially those that are high in oil contents and alcoholic beverages with fruits and vegetables.
Of course, you must not rely on a nutritional plan in treating acne alone. You have to consider this ‘internal remedy’ along with some ‘external remedies’. This is more so when your acne is moderate to severe. You have to use products like chemical peels which usually work in three ways: inhibits oil production, prevents bacterial proliferation and peels dead skin cells.The combination of these three is the culprit in the development of acne.
The problem is that there are many acne products in the market today, almost all of which claim that they are the best. You must not buy just any acne product treatment that you see. You have to consider the special needs of your skin. Observe your skin and determine whether it is oily or dry or both. Your skin type should inform your acne product decision making. You have to buy acne products that fight oiliness or moisturize the skin. It would be much better if you can find a product that functions as both.
Remember that there are some minor side effects to acne products. These may include itching, burning, stinging and reddening. However, these are just normal and actually, our skin’s natural reaction to foreign elements. These side effects should go away in a matter of few days but if one or all of these side effects persist, you should stop using the product. It may contain ingredients that are not compatible with your skin’s chemistry.
