5 Tips To Cure Your Acne

Here are 5 tips to help with acne prevention and treatment and skin maintenance. They are listed in no particular order of importance.

Tip: Where your skin is acne prone, consider treating it with tea tree oil. Used to reduce oil buildup, tea tree oil can be less drying to the skin than many other treatments, and is a more natural product.

1. Get plenty of fresh air and sunshine for vitamin D, ingredients for healthy skin. Not only will your skin appreciate the vitamin D, your body and mind will enjoy the oxygen and stress reducer of a daily jaunt outdoors. But don't overdo it and get a sunburn! Remember to use sun protection / tanning lotions if you'll be out long. You don't want to get caught up in that cycle of burned, dead skin cells blocking pores, resulting in acne scenario.

Tip: Many people are tempted to pop their pimples. If you absolutely have to, make sure your hands and fingernails are freshly washed to avoid contaminating your pore with bacteria.

2. Remember, even "good" stress can trigger internal chemical responses that result in acne, too. So plan ahead to deal with extra stress when planning a wedding, graduation, a move, a new job, a job transfer, a new baby, etc. Journal a little extra, focusing on the upcoming issue or issues and plan in some extra rest (use relaxation or meditation tools - cassettes, workshops, etc.) Get help around the house, take time off, exercise (yoga and T'ai Chi are highly recommended), have fun or whatever you need to do.

Tip: Even if you are tempted to, do not pick at your acne or pop your zits! Try using a cream to treat them as an alternative. The risk of your acne infection spreading or forming scars is much greater if you pick at it and pop whiteheads.

3. Drink an adequate amount of water daily. Many recommend three to four tall glasses and mineral or filtered water. Too little water can lead to dehydration, which can lead to dead skin cells not naturally falling off or sloughing properly; the end result can be blocked pores, acne.

Tip: Change your pillowcase each night. Consider this! Visualize putting your face on a dirty pillow at someone else's house.

4. Acne has nothing to do with dirt. Period. So don't over-wash or over-scrub your face or the rest of your body. Keep in mind that too much can result in dry skin. And dry skin means your body will jump in and create more oil. Then what? Extra oil + extra dead skin cells = blocked pores, triggering acne flare-ups. Same old story.

Tip: Another great way to help reduce the occurrence of acne, would be to decrease meats and dairy from your diet. Many people feel that hormones in meat and milk can adversely affect acne; therefore, reducing your consumption of them will probably help your acne.

5. - Add more fruits, veggies, seeds and nuts to your regular diet. (Note that deficiencies if selenium and zinc, found in Brazil nuts and pumpkin seeds, have been associated with acne.) So add salads, dried fruit and nut snacks, juices and other healthy treats to your daily planning.
