 Acne Care


Acne care begins with what goes into your body and ends with your acne treatment.  This is what worked for me to clear my skin.  It’s a bit of a paradigm change from what the acne skin care treatment companies want to you to think, their objective is to sell you as many products as they can and sway you away from the one that you’re currently using.  They do this by telling you that their product is all you need to clear your acne; it may work, but it’s not all you need.

The best acne treatment is always the one that will cure your acne from inside your body and treat it on the outside.  In order to do this you have to take a close look at what you’re putting inside your body each day.  The food and drink we consume has a direct effect on how your skin looks.  Every part of your body is connected and your food (energy) fuels every part of it.  To see the effect of this, take a clove of peeled garlic and rub it on the bottom of your foot.  In 15 minutes or so, you’ll be able to taste the garlic in your mouth.  I know that’s a little gross, but it proves the point.

An acne skin care treatment diet consists of mainly fresh fruits, veggies, and nuts.  Being vegan would certainly help (you and the animals), but your diet should at least be much heavier on the good things like those than things like meat, sugar, bread, and other processed food.  The chemicals that are found in many of these foods will add toxins and other crap into your body that’s going to show up in your skin.

Since I’m sure there will be times when you still eat bad, back all of that good food up with a ton of water.  The extra water is going to flush the crap out of your body.  Drinking at least a half-gallon of water each day will suffice, but drink more if you are very active or drink coffee, tea, soda, energy drinks, or alcohol.

Acne Skin Care Products

After you get the diet side of this down, you should focus on how you’re treating the outside.  Acne care products come in many shapes and sizes, but they are all essentially the same active ingredients in different concentrations.  What this means for you is that one product may work great on my face, but not at all on yours.  Since everyone’s skin is different, you’re going to have to shop around and find the one that cleans your skin without drying it out.  Using a treatment that is too concentrated isn’t going to treat your acne any faster, it’s just going to dry it out!

When you’ve found a treatment that doesn’t dry your skin out, stick with it for at least two bottles.  If, after those two bottles are finished, you don’t see any results find another product.  The reason for this is that the ingredients take time to be effective and work their magic.  Your skin will also have to take time to adjust to the new product.

The best acne treatment for you is the one that cleanses your skin and leaves it moisturized.  After you’ve found this product, stick to it!  This is extremely important.  If you keep jumping around, you’ll have to start the process over again.
