Acne Skin Care Tips.
Skin that is covered in spots, pimples and pustules is a nightmare - without a doubt one the most stressful conditions for a teenager to bear !
Even worse if it continues into adulthood. Living with clogged pores and follicles is distressing and the pharmaceutical companies are cashing in on the desperation it causes, the solution is kind, gentle, effective, scientifically proven , natural, inexpensive and readily available, it's probably sitting in your kitchen right now.........it's Olive Oil !
Acne, very basically is where the pore and follicle in the skin becomes blocked by dead skin cells, the natural process of skin shedding and renewal is interrupted by a plug of sebum in the follicle and pore, inhibiting the release of dead skin and thus resulting in a multitude of blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, pustules, papules......all commonly known as comedones, zits or pimples !
It takes 2 - 3 weeks for this clogging to manifest itself........normally on a Saturday night just as the affected teenager is about to go out.............. and duly results in sobs at the treachery of her unruly skin !
The causes of these outbreaks are generally attributed to hormones, ones that are on a rollercoaster ride - this includes adolescence, menstruation, pregnancy and sometimes even the menopause.
Other factors maybe certain medications notably Steroids, Lithium, Phenytoin, Phenobarbitol or Oral Contraceptives.
Excessive sweating and poor hygiene also contribute...........absolutely the worst scenario is the introduction of bacteria to the skin by fingers determined to annihilate the offending spot !
Obviously, diet will play an added factor, it is sensible to acknowledge that what is consumed will have a visible effect on your over-all well-being.........if you live on junk food, candy and fizzy drinks.......do not expect to have radiant, glowing and healthy skin, so it is wise to moderate or eliminate (how badly do you want great skin ?) sugar, in drinks, on food, in food, say goodbye to the cakes and biscuits !
Fried foods and refined carbohydrates are culprits too, sloughing up your system, prepared meals, white flour products, anything with processed trans-fats! Ice-cream, butter and cream need to be consumed moderately....... everyone needs ice-cream once in a while :)
Smoking is not a good idea at the best of times.........especially if you want great skin !
Acne skin care tips .......The Simple Science
The benefits of olive oil for acne, combined with essential oils skin care, simple, safe, pure and natural !
Olive oil is full of monounsaturated fatty acids - this means in the fat world it's a good guy ...really it encourages a healthy cholesterol ratio !
It brings down the LDL's, the low-density lipoproteins, to maintain an optimum balance, reducing LDL cholesterol levels whilst simultaneously raising up the HDL's, the high-desity lipoprotein levels improving the HDL cholesterol levels.
It contains a high density of antioxidants , polyphenols these protect the body from free radicals.
The vitamins found in olive oil are D, E and K and a high proportion of Beta-carotenes which the body coverts into Vitamin A.
