Hormonal Acne - Treating Acne At It's Source
Why You Should Treat Hormonal Acne Internally, At Its
Can you treat a headache or stomach ache externally, without
somehow manipulating your natural bodily functions internally
(aka popping a pill)? NO! Then why would you try to treat acne
that way? Many acne treatment systems today such as Proactiv,
target acne only from the outside, and do not address the issue
interanally, as it should be for lasting and dramatic results.
If you are really serious about treating acne and really
eliminating it at it's source (ie the hormones that cause acne),
then you owe it to yourself to try a natural acne hormone
treatment which is specifically designed to equalize hormone
imbalance and purify the skin from the inside out using special
blends of herbs, botanicals, and/or natural compounds such as
Vitamin E and Alpha Lipoic Acid.
Why Go Natural Instead of Choosing a Conventional Acne
Because many people who have not been responsive to conventional
acne treatments, or their effectiveness has worn off due to long
term use, experience superior results with natural acne
Acne can actually be caused by two different hormones in women.
It's usually an overabundance of androgens (male hormones) or
estrogens (female hormones). In men, it can also be caused by
imbalances in male and female hormones. This hormonal imbalance
triggers the breakouts by over-stimulating the oil glands on
acne prone areas of the body, which then results in a clogging
of the pore, hence that thing we all know and love - the pimple.
Antioxidants are also very potent as hormonal equalizers, as
well as "blood purifiers", and their properties foster an
environment for mending skin eruptions as well as preventing new
breakouts and promoting a healthy glow and skin tone.
Most natural acne treatments are designed to do two things:
1.) Help correct hormonal imbalances related to acne breakouts.
2.) Reduce inflammation and swelling, and pave the way for fast
skin repair where breakouts have recently occurred.
Some other tips you can follow to help prevent unsightly
1.) Drink plenty of water. This helps to cleanse the system, and
results in clearer, more hydrated skin.
2.) Avoid caffeine and caffeine-containing products like
chocolate or supplements containing caffeine or other stimulants.
3.) Relax. Try a calming exercise for when you get stressed out.
Stress triggers breakouts for many individuals.
4.) Avoid harsh cleansers or toners - these can only aggravate
acne and cause further irritation and redness.
5.) Use a light, non-comedogenic (non pore-clogging) sunscreen.
While it is true a suntan may camouflage breakouts, it mostly
aggravates them by forcing further oil production due to its
drying effects. Try using a good facial self tanner instead.
If you follow these few simple skincare principles, and combine
them with a high quality acne treatment targeted to balance
hormones and internally "cleanse", you really can't lose. Your
complexion will thank you!
