Acne Cures Do Not Exist

By: roopam

Suffering from acne can be a socially debilitating disease
for a lack of a better term. If you are someone who suffers
from acne there is no doubt in my mind that you tried to
find a cure for it.

Unfortunately no case of acne is ever the same as another.
There are a number of things that can cause acne breakouts
from sunburn, too much chocolate, oily skin or even stress.
Certain soaps and conditioners can also trigger acne flare

Puberty is when acne first rears its ugly head making social
gatherings a little uncomfortable. Despite acne cures like
Proactiv are littered across the television and other places
there is, I’m sorry to say, no such thing. It is a hard
truth that acne cures do not exist.

So-Called Drug Cures

Drug therapies like Proactiv and Clearasil offer short term

Clearasil has been around since the late 50s and is a means
to clean the skin of excess oils which block pores.

Proactive is a newer medical cream used to stimulate the
pores into opening further and releasing oils.

Accutane, on the other hand is more long-term. Accutane is a
prescription drug only received by dermatologists.

Side Effects

Many drugs, like Accutane, may offer a long term relief but
also come with a laundry list of harmful side-effects.

Accutane has side effects that include loose bowel
movements, migraines, skin irritations and chest pains.

Clearasil can cause more skin irritations than it can cure
and should be used sparingly over only tough times.

Proactiv is the new wunderkind of acne “cures” but the
reality is that it’s just a cream. Over use can cause severe
dry skin.

Natural “Cures”

There are many natural cures available, like Fish Oil or
Flax Seed, but they only tend to ease the suffering in
certain cases.

Many natural stimulates can be found wherever you go. Flax
Seed is found in a dietary supplement as well some foods.

Fish Oil helps to release the oil in your pours so that your
skin can breath – in essence doing away with the cause of

Certain teas, such as Green Tea and White Tea, are wrought
with natural antioxidants which can prevent acne.

Lose The Stress

One key causes of acne is stress. Find stability in your
life and a calming influence and you will, over time, see
acne fade away.

Work stress is the biggest cause of late-life acne. Remember
to breath and take it easy when you can.

Your family is important to you but can cause serious stress
triggers that will leave you with acne.

Healthier Eating

Many foods can cause excess oils to be produced. Eating a
diet high in fiber and protein while cutting out greasy
foods will help greatly.

Like stress, the foods you eat for your busy life can cause
you to get acne. Simple changes could surprise you.

Avoid foods that are fried in oil as the excess oil will
cause your pores to block up and acne will develop.
