Skin Care Dealing With Acne

Natural Healing Clay Australia
Acne is a disorder that can cause the sufferer a lot of emotional distress. While acne is quite common for teenagers it can continue well into maturity, resulting in emotional side-effects such as embarrassment, loss of confidence, low self-esteem, to name a few. Many of you may have tried everything but nothing seems to work, in fact, some products seem to exacerbate the condition.Clay therapy, a completely natural and effective alternative to traditional skin care, may be just the solution you are looking for.The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) advises that close to 100% of people between the ages of 12 and 17 have at least an occasional whitehead, blackhead or a pimple, regardless of race or ethnicity. But for many, it goes beyond the occasional blemish.

Acne usually starts appearing between the ages of 10 to 13 and lasts about 5 to 10 years. However, acne can persist well into the late 20s, 30s and even beyond. Some people may even get acne for the first time as adults.Acne also affects males and females equally, however, males are more likely than females to have more severe, longer lasting forms of acne (AAD).Acne is a disorder resulting from the (over) action of hormones and other substances on the skin’s sebaceous (oil) glands and hair follicles (National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS). Together with water and perspiration, sebum acts as the skin’s barrier system. However, these same factors can lead to blocked pores resulting in outbreaks of pimples, blackheads, etc and in many cases scarring, on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders.To help balance sebum production it is good to start from the inside. Follow a diet consisting of fresh fruit and vegetables, protein, complex carbohydrates and of course, drink lots and lots of water. Avoid the usual nasties such as cigarettes, coffee, alcohol, and refined sugars.

And for the outside or skin surface daily cleansing is imperative. Avoid synthetic chemicals such as harsh surfactants in cleansers, and alcohol in toners, as these tend to strip the skin of sebum, resulting in the skin producing more oil to compensate, thereby creating a vicious circle. Cosmetics, such as foundation, blusher, eye shadow, moisturizer, and hair-care products should also be oil free. Look for products labelled as non-comedogenic (does not clog pores).
Try also using a completely natural alternative to conventional skin care, one that does not contain oils, fragrances, preservatives, etc. Acne treatments work by reducing oil production, speeding up skin cell turnover, fighting bacterial infection or doing all three (Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research). Clay mud face & body masks may be just what you are looking for it as has all these three actions in each application.Furthermore, clay therapy assists in reducing the potential for acne scarring and helps dissolve existing pockmarks. © Linda Philip
