Acne is the scourge of the teenage youth who wants to look his best in his formative years, and a problem for those of us who in later years are afflicted by this ugly and embarrassing problem, but there are many systems available for treating acne, and for preventing the reoccurrence of the unwanted blight.
The herbal remedy
The emergence of herbal remedies on the market in recent years has led to a boon in popularity for these side effect free and generally beneficial skin enhancements, and the herbal remedy is the one most people consider rather than a trip to the doctors or a remedy from the chemist.
Herbal remedies involve the application of essential oils to the skin, oils such as Tea Tree or Coconut oil, Grapeseed or Rosewood oil, all of which are harvested from naturally growing trees as opposed to manufactured in laboratories.
The benefits of essential natural oils are many, as the add nutrients to the skin – essential nutrients that may not be present in great enough numbers, hence inviting acne – that go towards eliminating acne, and towards preventing the acne from reappearing once it has gone.
These natural oils also help to keep the skin healthy and ‘alive’ and the results can be seen in a more lustrous and vibrant skin, a benefit we all want to see.
You are what you eat
It may well be worth taking a look at your diet, too, as the regulation of diet is an effective acne treatment system and, conversely, a poor diet an invitation for acne to prosper.
If you eat too much in the way of fatty foods, or indulge in oil rich meals on a frequent basis, you are asking acne to come and stay; reduce the fat, remove the oils, and the enzymes associated with these foods no longer infests the skin and appear as unsightly blemishes where we least want them.
