A lot of people seem to think that only teens suffer from acne vulgaris. Well, it is true that majority of acne sufferers are teenagers; it is like the process of transition for them to adulthood: as they go through several hormonal changes, they suffer from acne and acne-related diseases. However, even some young women and adult men too suffer from acne – again it is caused mainly by the hormonal changes they go through as they age! No matter your age, one thing is certain: if you suffer from an acne breakout, you are sure to be left with some very ugly scars, sooner or later!
For the more fortunate ones, the scars are very superficial and they vanish on their own after a period of time; others are not so fortunate! Especially if you have a severe acne breakout then you could have very deep, prominent scars on your skin that give your face a dented look; such scars do not go on their own: you can usually get rid of them only by undergoing surgery! That said, there are some natural treatments you can use to minimize or alleviate the appearance of your acne scars, and that is really what this article is all about!
A lot of people make the mistake of focusing more on their external appearance instead of cleaning up their internal body! Let me tell you something: the reason why you have so many scars on your skin is because your body is full of toxins! Here is what happens: when your pimples go, initially, you get only a few scars; however, as the toxins present in your body flows towards the skin tissues then that increases the number of scars on your face. Therefore, your primary objective should be to keep your body clean at all times. Let us start with your body.
If your body is full of toxins then chances are that you have been thriving on a diet full of sugar, processed foods, carbohydrates, fried stuff, etc. The first thing you need to do is to replace all these foods with healthier alternatives, such as foods rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals. Foods such as cereals and whole grains should be part of your diet. Apart from that, you should keep your body hydrated at all times by drinking plenty of water throughout the day: an average adult should drink at least eight glasses of water per day, according to eminent doctors!
Unfortunately, modern food does not offer you all the vitamins and minerals your body ends, no matter how ‘natural’ you go! Therefore, it is also important that you supplement your diet with Vitamin B (essential to keep your hormones in check and in proper balance), essential fatty acids, zinc (for repairing and removing acne scars, healing of wound, regeneration of healthy skin tissues and prevention of skin inflammation), Vitamin C (for acne scar removal and also to boost the immunity system of your body so as to prevent future acne outbreaks), etc. All these can be purchased over-the-counter from any chemist’s shop!
Next, you should wash your face at least twice a day with lukewarm water; if possible, use an herbal cleanser. Make sure that the cleanser does not make your skin too oily or dry, as both of these conditions as bad for your skin!
Try all the steps above and live a healthy, acne-free life!
