We all want our skin clean. But it’s not such an easy task. Quite often acne treatment is a rather complex process conducted by an expert.
As a rule, only the dermatologist or beautician can properly find the cause and help you get rid of acne. The doctor will conduct restorative and cleaning procedures for your skin, give you drugs to restores hormonal balance. He will also apply cleaning face masks. After all it seems that you can’t deal with acne on your own, but always turn to an expert, who always know what to do and gas all the stuff.
But it’s not necessarily so. For example, one of great home remedies for acne is clove oil. This essential oil is safe and can be bought over the counter in every drug store. The main component of clove oil is eugenol, which is an effective natural antiseptic and anesthetic. Because it takes a long time to evaporate, clove oil is applied topically to treat acne and other skin disease such as rashes, scabies, lice, and other parasites. Moreover, as a painkiller, it is a perfect for toothache relief at home. It is also used as a home remedy for bronchitis and sore throat.
Thus, clove oil is one of the best home remedies for acne and not only and every home medicine chest should always have a place for it.
For the most part acne is typical of teenagers what seems quite natural. Excess of hormones makes the sebaceous glands overactive, what clogs pores with many bacteria trapped inside, resulting in inflammation and acne.
Typically, acne goes away when people become mature. But sometimes it doesn’t. If you are an adult person and you still have acne, the cause of it lies no longer in hormones but rather in your diet. In this respect, there are foods that should be avoided if you want to get rid of acne.
Sweets and starchy foods. Candy, sugar, cakes, cookies and potato chips can make your skin look withering and lead to acne. Moreover, they don’t contain much vitamins and minerals what may result in an unhealthy color of your skin and dryness. It can be very difficalt to say no to your favorites, but at least try to somehow replace them with their “healthy analogues” – for example, candy and sweets with honey and dried fruits.
Fat foods. There is probably nothing worse for your skin than fat and fried foods. If you can’t imagine your life without them, try at least to replace animal fat with vegetable one. Vegetable oil is very useful in combination with carrots, spinach, sweet potatoes, dark green and dark orange vegetables, which are rich in vitamin A. Even in a few day after you change your diet in this respect you will notice that your skin becomes rejuvenated, and inflammation gets reduced.
Coffee. Coffee increases the level of the hormone cortisol, which is one of the main acne causes in adulthood. Sweet coffee on an empty stomach in the morning is particularly dangerous, as it can lead to a serious inflammatory process in your face skin. If you are not a hopeless coffee addict try to reduce its dose for the sake of your health and beauty.
Nuts. Tasty crunchy roasted peanuts, almonds, walnuts, and pistachios will definitely cause acne if you overeat yourself with them. On the contrary, small amounts of nuts are very useful for your health.
Dairy products. You can eat any amount of yogurt, milk and cheese, but the quantity of ice cream and cheese should be restricted. The thing is that these products contain steroids and progesterone that increase the activity of the sebaceous glands.
The benefits of chocolate has been known for years. Chocolate contains caffeine and theobromine, which stimulate man’s efficiency and creativity. In extreme conditions and when you have high loads chocolate is your best helper and provider of extra energy. No wonder that it’s included in the ration of military men.
Moreover, chocolate alleviates stress, anxiety and depression. Remember, a chocolate bar is not just your favorite dainty, but also a great means to ease the nerves. They say it works better for men than women in this respect.
What’s more important, if we take chocolate in the context of this website, is can help get rid of acne and clean your skin. All products made from cocoa beans are rich in antioxidants and other useful substances. But you should always know when to stop. So, if you want to get rid of acne (it takes several weeks), you are advised to eat 2 to 5 chocolate sweets per day and not more. Also stay away from other sweets and starchy foods during this “chocolate diet”.
