Five Helpful Tips to Cure Your Acne
And although acne affects about 50 percent of all adult

women, acne does affect males and females worldwide,

regardless of nationality.

Here are 5 tips to help with acne prevention and treatment

and skin maintenance. They are listed in no particular

order of importance.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
