After suffering acne for almost a decade, you are expected to have learnt pretty much about treating acne and perhaps the most effective ways for going about this condition.
Of course, I learnt a lot. And part of what I have learnt is that acne can be treated in a lot more ways that most of us know about. The most common misconception about acne is that the breakout is caused by poor facial or skin hygiene. This may worsen the situation, but researches and experience have shown that it is not the root cause of acne. Thus, treatment procedures that tailored along this thinking are bound to fail.
The face, and generally, the skin should be seen as a part of the body. In this regard, the face is like an external expression of the health of the body. Anything that improves the health of the body is bound to make your face free of those depressing acne breakouts.
Good and healthy diet, regular exercise and stress-free living are all factors that are important for ridding your face of acne.
Healthy and balanced eating not just improves the body?s health, it also adds to the health, shine and texture of the skin. It is important to note that bacterial infection of the sebaceous glands have been shown to be one of the commonest causes of acne. Healthy eating improves the body?s immunity and its ability to fight off infections.
Also regular exercise strengthens the muscles of the body, allows the internal organ to function effectively and also strengthens the skin. The profuse sweat that follows a sound exercise is capable of freeing your hair pores of any kind of obstruction. Since obstruction of skin pores have been shown to be one of the common cause of acne, freeing your pores with the intense sweating that comes with a sound exercise is sure to reduce, if not completely stop, acne breakouts.
Ask some people and they will tell you that stress is the most powerful inducer of acne breakouts. This is from experience. I have always suffered serious acne breakout whenever I get too worked up over something. This may be difficult to explain medically, but it is obvious. Learning to keep stress at bay does wonders for acne skin care.
Apparently, following these healthy tips might not completely rid you of acne, but I am sure it would make the work less difficult. Acne treatment that accompanies healthy eating, regular exercise and low stress levels is bound to be far more effective and long lasting.
