The Benefits of Going to a Licensed Acne SpecialistSeptember 9, 2013
Are you ready to kick start your acne free lifestyle and you are not sure where to begin? Follow these steps today and you will be headed in the right direction!
1.) Increase your water consumption, with a goal of at least 1 liter a day. Often we confuse dry skin with dehydrated skin. By increasing your water intake, it will promote moisture in the skin. Water to boring? Try slicing an organic orange, lemon or cucumber into cool, purified water. Addicting!
2.) Follow a low salt diet. Begin to limit the consumption of salty foods such as fast foods, greasy foods, canned or restaurant foods. The excess salt from this type of diet quickly enters the blood stream and soon-thereafter hits the pores of the skin, producing additional oil and creates a new wave of acne on the surface of the skin.
3.) Avoid peanuts, peanut oil, peanut butter, and wheat germ. These ingredients play the part of androgens, which is a form of testosterone. Consuming these types of food also create a fast breakout of acne.
4.) Changing your pillow case nightly helps in preventing new breakouts. There is quite a bit of research which supports this healthy skin routine.
5.) Reduce your stress and sleep more. Research has also proven over and over how tightly these factors are connected to acne breakouts.
6.) At the first sign of a new blemish forming, apply ice for 2 minutes off and on through out the day. Chances are the inflammation will dissipate and shrink up.
