Hi ChemStump

Here are some real answers on skin conditions. Remedies at the bottom. Cleansing the body of toxins is the key. Especially a colon cleanse! Educate yourself on detoxifying the blood.

Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D. – “What is your skin trying to tell you? Often the skin is a metaphor for deeper issues and a way for your body to send up a red flag to warn you that all is not well underneath. When our skin is unhealthy it is usually a reflection of the internal state of our bodies, and is often a sign of poor elimination of toxins and waste products. Most of us are embarrassed by skin problems such as rashes, rosacea, boils or acne, especially in places where others can see our imperfections. The skin is the body’s first line of defense against the environment. It has to deal with the effects of weather, sun , cold, heat, dryness, humidity, scrapes, bumps, soaps, detergents, chemicals, perspiration and dirt of all kinds. It is a wonder that our skin stays healthy most of the time! We can help our skin deal with this onslaught by optimizing our general health and by protecting our skin from harsh environmental exposure. Western medicine generally treats skin eruptions with either antibiotics, cortisone, or antifungal preparations. These medicines may alleviate the skin problem temporarily, or occasionally for good, but do not address the source of the problem. Putting a lid on skin symptoms without getting to the root of the imbalance may even result in suppression, that means the imbalance may be driven deeper causing more serious health problems later without ever strengthening the underlying vital force of the person. Fortunately, naturopathic medicine offers a wide vareity of effective treatments for skin problems.”

Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D. – “Your skin is a reflection of how well your body is eliminating the toxins that build up on a daily basis. Chronic skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis stem from a combination of genetic factors, immune stress, dietary deficiencies or sensitivities, and the accumulation of toxins in the body. For our skin to be radiant and clear, it is very important that the other organs of elimination (kidneys, liver, lungs, and colon) are cleansing the body effectively. If not, the skin will be overtaxed, pores will become clogged, and eruptions of one sort or another will result. Here are a number of steps you can take to improve your body’s overall elimination wtih specific emphasis on your skin.”

Detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. Juice Fasting is the world’s most ancient and natural healing mechanism. Fasting triggers a truly wondrous cleansing process that reaches right down to each and every cell and tissue in the body.

Learn more about Therapeutic Fasting and Detoxification – Colon Cleansing is the main step. Must remove the toxins from the colon, so the toxins dont get in the blood and cause illness and disease.

Natural Cures

1. Fruits and Vegetables for Acne: Carrot & spinach, celery & watercress, grapefruit juices are all useful to combat acne.

2. Unwholesome Foods: Acne, a prevalent problem among teen-aged boys would not be possible in our society if our foods were wholesome. A most sad and disgusting sight is the pus-filled pimples due to inner toxicity — wastes trying desperately to escape through the face. This condition often turns a gentle face in the blossom of youth into a waste dump of pimples, pus and subsequent pock marks which can be prevented. The tons of acne medications and prescriptions sold annually act only on the effect of the harmful food, and not the cause of the disease, malnutrition. The traditional teenage meal, a grease burger, french fries and a milk shake or cola simply does not provide enough nourishment for anyone, let alone a boy going through puberty to adulthood. Our highly processed foods are devoid of hormones found in fresh fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds. Must do a colon cleanse to rid of all the toxins in the body, which eventually get into the blood and cause acne and all other diseases.

3. Cabbage: Apply a lotion of freshly prepared cabbage juice preceded, if desired, by the application of leaves. The eating of cabbage leaves or juice is also helpful.

4. Lemon Juice: Skin problems such as acne… Will often respond to a treatment of lemon juice. For blackheads rub lemon juice over them each night.

5. Black Walnut: Externally, Black Walnut is nearly a miracle worker in cases of …acne, dandruff, boils, itch, shingles, ringworm–we could go on, but you can see that you can use Black Walnut whenever a skin disorder appears! The tincture is an excellent first-aid remedy for wounds.

Best of health to you

Michael asks…

How can I get rid of some gross pimples ASAP?

So I’ve always had acne prone skin, but lately I’d been eating better, excersizing, and using a good face wash. My skin had started to clear up and show some big improvements. Then I went on a short vacation, where I ate a lot of greasy food and went swimming. I heard that chlorine and fast food have been linked to acne, and now I have a bunch of big, red pimples around my mouth and chin. I’m going to start eating healthy again and see if that helps, but are there some other tricks I can try? My breakout is horrible, and prom is just a week away. Any and all advice would be appreciated.

Hi Asiaminor,

Although there is no overnight solution for acne, hopefully understanding acne will help you decide the best treatment option for you.

Your face is covered in tiny holes, called pores, which produce oil to help keep your skin moist and supple. As your skin creates new skin cells the old ones die, mix with your skin’s natural oils and fall off. Sometimes the process doesn’t happen evenly or fast enough causing the dead cells to become sticky and plug the pores. As your pores and skin continue their natural process, the trapped oil swells up in the clogged pore. This creates the ideal environment for the naturally occurring bacterium, propionibacterium acnes, to thrive and multiply rapidly. Your body’s natural defense mechanism sends a swarm of white blood cells to attack the unwanted bacteria causing inflammation and the often painful, red and swollen pimples. This process takes approximately 2-3 weeks; so while it may feel like you get a pimple overnight, it’s actually the final stage of a much longer process.

Antimicrobials, like benzoyl peroxide, can kill the P. Acnes bacterium that causes acne blemishes and is available in many over-the-counter treatments. If you acne is sever and doesn’t respond to over-the-counter treatments, it might be a good idea to see a dermatologist. Your dermatologist can perform more aggressive treatments like laser or blue light therapies and prescribe antibiotics or topical drugs. Another thing to keep in mind is that since this the natural process and cycle of your pores and skin there is no “cure.” So once you find a treatment that works for you, you should stick with it to maintain your results.

So while a good diet and healthy lifestyle will promote your overall wellbeing it isn’t enough to prevent breakouts and maintain clear skin.

Good luck!

Helen asks…

What is the proper way to treat acne scars?

Back in my junior year of highschool I had pretty bad CYSTIC acne on my face cheeks, and along jawline. I made the dumb mistake of picking them now I have scars on my cheeks that appear dark red and under the skin.. I heard lemon juice works is this true? If not how can I get rid of these?

admin answers:

There is some truth/common consensus on lemon juice but not by rubbing it on the skin. There are also many other natural ways to diminish acne scars:

Drink lots of water: Water has amazing cleansing and rejuvenating properties. Some experts believe that the best way to treat acne scars naturally is to drink lots of water. Dead skin cells are shed off easier when your body is hydrated with enough water. New skin also grows faster and smoother when you have lots of water in your body.

Eat fruits and vegetables: Fruits and vegetables contain lots of vitamins and minerals that can help your skin restore its former beauty. They also contain juices which keep your body hydrated every day. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables to make your skin grow healthier and heal acne scars.

Load up on lemon juice: Lemon juice is a kind of citric acid that’s very effective in reducing or getting rid of acne scars. Drink several glasses of lemon juice each day to help your dead skin cells shed faster. New skin cells will also grow healthier and add elasticity to your skin if you load up on lemon juice.

Maintain a balanced and nutritious diet: You can’t simply get rid of acne scars by applying natural substances on your skin. A large part of the healing process consists of maintaining a balanced and nutritious diet that aids in the growth of new, healthy skin. Also, eating a healthy diet gives you the essential nutrients that you need to fight against infections and other types of diseases that might complicate your acne scars. Make sure to include tofu, chicken, soy, and fish in your diet as these foods are rich in protein which aids in the healing of your skin.

Try rosehip seed oil: Another amazing home remedy against acne scars is rosehip seed oil. The oil has anti-aging properties that reduce wrinkles, rejuvenate the skin, and bring back its original color. Rosehip seed oil is widely used in commercial cosmetic products that are used to treat burn marks, premature aging, sun damage, surgical scars, facial scars and acne scars. Purchase rosehip seed oil from a department store near you and massage it twice a day on areas of your face that have acne scars.

Apply Aloe vera gel or juice: Aloe vera gel or juice helps get rid of acne scars and makes your facial skin healthier. There are many brands of aloe vera gel or juice available on the market today. Read product reviews of each brand on the Internet to find out which one is the best. Read the instructions on the label carefully before applying on affected areas of your skin.
Treat your scars with tomato: Tomato is rich in vitamin A, making it effective in stopping the overproduction of sebum that causes acne and acne scars. Tomato also has antioxidant properties that rejuvenate damaged skin. Slice up a tomato every day and place it over your face to quickly reduce your scars.

Heal them with olive oil: Olive oil is truly a miracle substance. It does not only make your food taste better, it also improves the condition of your skin and reduces your acne scars. Massage the oil on affected parts of your skin every day. It has moisturizing properties that soften the texture of your skin and reduce the prominence of your acne scars.

Use honey: Honey is a sweet substance that brightens up your day but it can also brighten up your face. Massage honey on affected parts of your skin or take it orally to reduce your acne scars and make your skin look younger.

Lather with lavender oil: Lavender oil is another natural substance that is widely used in many commercial cosmetic products. Apply lavender oil on your acne scars and gently massage your skin. The oil has regenerative properties that will make your skin look cleaner, fresher and younger.

Rose water and sandalwood: Make a paste of rose water and sandalwood and gently apply it on your acne scars. Leave the paste on your skin overnight then wash it with cold water the next morning. Do this regularly together with other natural treatments for acne scars to get rid of the scars as quickly as possible.

Rub them with ice cubes: Lots of people use ice cubes to get rid of their acne scars at home. Wrap an ice cube in a piece of cloth and rub it on affected areas for 10 to 15 minutes every day. This should lessen the inflammation on your skin, making it look smoother.

Make your own face mask: Mix one tablespoon of sour cream with one tablespoon of oatmeal and yogurt, then add a few drops of lemon juice. Apply the mixture on your acne scars and leave it there for about 10 minutes. Thoroughly rinse it off and pat it dry.

Multani Mitti paste: Mix some garlic cloves, carrot juice, honey and Multani Mitti powder and turn the mixture into a paste. Apply it on your acne scars for 20 minutes every day to reduce the redness and swelling. You may combine this home remedy together with other natural treatments to get rid of the scars faster.

William asks…

How do I clear acne?

Alright, the basics. I know that water helps to clear acne. I drink about a gallon and a half a day. I know pop/soda causes acne. So I don’t drink it.

My skin is pretty clear. I have a pimple here and there, but dude… I want to be perfect. May sound hard, but I do.

I have proactiv, but I can’t use it in the winter because it drys out my skin to much. In the summer my skin is virtually untouchable. It’s clear or at least it looks clear because of my tan.

Anyways, any other tips to get rid of acne? I cleanse 2 times a day… and drink a gallon and a half of water a day. I keep hands away from face and wash my pillow case a lot. What else can I do? Any home remedies?

Note: My skin is good in the summer. In the winter it has a little acne. Do you have worse acne in the winter than you do in the summer? Or is it just me?

Does proactiv work on pimples that are caused by stress?

Does it also help fade blemishes?

My pimples are caused by stress (which by the way i can’t avoid). They are red bumps on my skin and they hurt like hell. They also leave blemishes even if i dont touch them. They are only red bumps and there are no white puss on it. So will proactiv work for me?

Charles asks…

Can fresh squeezed lemon juice go bad in room temperature?

I will be using lemon juice to get rid of acne scars, and would like to store it in my room. I won’t be adding anything to the fresh squeezed juice. So will it go bad if I do this?
No sugar or anything will go into. Pure 100% lemon juice.

admin answers:

Since you are using it to heal scars, you may only, at the longest leave it out for two days at the most. Also, if you mix honey with it, it will twice as fast and is much better for your skin. I use a sugar, honey, and lemon homemade face wash and scrub everyday.

Donald asks…

How can i get rid of acne scars/ redmarks?

Ima 15 year old male and i have a LOt of acne scars on my cheeks i barealy have any pimples but how can i get rid of them people laugh at me at school

admin answers:

OK dear i’ll give you some options

One of the best ones is application of freshly squeezed aloe vera gel. Get fresh leaves and split them to remove the gel, this is your best bet. Make sure you wash your face properly before applying this gel.Aloe is a natural moisturizer and aids in the healing process — people often use it to help heal their sunburn.

You can also employ to use diluted hydrogen peroxide to your scars but remember not to go out in the sun after applying this to your face, or else your dark marks may worsen.

You can also make your own by making a grainy mix of coarsely ground walnuts and yogurt. This can be used to scrub your face about thrice a week.

If you try these methods, expect for weeks to months before it fades or disappear. If you want fast healing, you can try surgical method. This method can be very effective for removing those dark spots, but it can also be expensive and painful. If you’re considering surgery for your acne scars, be sure you scope out all your options before you make your decision.

So now you know how hard to have acne marks, in the future, prevent more acne scars by avoiding picking or scratching at your acne. Don’t pop a zit! You also want to prevent the skin from drying out and scabbing, so that you don’t get any more acne scars. And please drink a lot of water and eat fresh fruits.

George asks…

what is the best acne treatment on the market?

what is the best acne treatment on the market that i can buy out of stores?

admin answers:

You have to decide what is best for you as some conventional, majorly marketed products are extremely effective, yet without side effects on some people whereas they are extremely allergic to many due to the harsh chemicals involved.

Mild to moderately severe acne may be treated with over-the-counter gels, lotions, and creams such as benzoyl peroxide which is applied directly to the skin. Oral antibiotics may also be prescribed to reduce inflammation while oral contraceptives have also shown to improve acne.

In episodes where acne is extremely severe, another oral medication known as Isotretinoin (Accutane) is one of the most effective treatments with successful results. However, all these medications can cause negative side effects and it is important that you inform your health practitioner or dermatologist immediately.

It is also important to develop a good skincare routine that involves cleansing your skin in the mornings, evenings and after workouts. By adjusting your lifestyle and incorporating a healthy diet, exercise, drinking lots of water and getting adequate sleep will also help to make a significant difference to your skin’s appearance.

Herbs have proven to be a more natural, gentle alternative for the treatment of acne rather than the harsh, synthetic chemicals used in over-the-counter products and conventional medications. Not only are herbal remedies safe and effective to use, they also support the skin, immune and digestive systems.

Two carefully selected herbal ingredients such as Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree Oil), Azadirachta indica and Arctium lappa contain antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiseptic properties and are not only effective for acne but for other skin conditions too. Other herbs such as Aspalathus linearis (Rooibos) and Bulbine frutescence have wonderful antioxidant and healing properties and also help to prevent skin infection and provide ongoing relief. In addition, Lavender Essential Oil acts as a circulatory stimulant and antiseptic, and is used to treat burns and wounds and to prevent scarring.

Good Luck!

Get Rid Of Acne Fast Ice

Jenny asks…

How do you get rid of popped pimples in one night or two ?

I have about 4 pimples that I popped:( now the are bright red and big! I want them gone and I want them gone fast (like in one night or two). I heard about the toothpaste and saltwater and ice remedies, do you know any other ones? Please help!

admin answers:

The best solustion is to stop popping! Pimples will heal on their own and maybe you’re having bad flare-ups because of puberty. Wash your face daily and nightly and the pimples will go over time, try a product that is specified for acne. Back to your main concern, take plain oatmeal and put it in a cloth and tie it shut, put that in a bowl of hot water, once the water is brown and murky take out the fabric with oatmeal and throw it away, splash your face with the liquid to calm redness. Hope this helps! Xo

How to get rid of acne FAST!!!?

I have 4 pimples on my cheek, 2 on my chin, and a couple on my forehead. Any home remedies to get rid of this fast.

admin answers:

Ugh acne is a be otch
=/
i had acne VERY badly but now it has subsided due to good skin care. I still get breakouts if i stop taking good care of my face.

Heres my daily facial routine.
Wake up–
1:wash face with a gentle oil free face wash use as warm of water as you can.
2: splash my face with COLD water for 30 seconds to snap my pores shut!
3: apply a very gentle OIL FREE face lotion.
Only use this if you think your skin is drying out to much.
4: then i apply a little bit of make up to cover my red splotches. [note: im a girl]

night time—
1: wash you face with the gentle cleanser
2: use a astringent if you want to
3: Exfoliate your face with granulated sugar and lemon juice.
(the sugar exfoliates and the lemon juice makes you skin soft)

other face care:
1:if you can splash your face with cold water several times a day
2:once a week run crisco and olive oil all over your face and let it soak in… Wash it off so it dont cloge poes. (this makes you skin baby butt soft)
3: eat less oils. E.g. French fries other deep fried foods. Basically dont eat fast food.
4: if you put a towel over your pillow when you sleep this helps… (it soaks up oils in your face instead of smearing them)
5: for the ones you have put ice then for about a minute a piece.–> before bed GOB neosporine on them–>when you wake up ice them some more…

Linda asks…

How to get rid of pimples fast?

I’ve just had a pimple and it’s going down now but it’s still a bit red. But now i’ve got another pimple coming right next to it and i go back to school tomorrow and i really don’t want it to be bad for tomorrow. Is there any way i can reduce the redness of my pimple or get rid of it by tomorrow. Does sudocrem help? Or shall i use tea tree oil? I’ve also heard that toothpaste clears them up but i’m not sure what to do, i’m also drinking lots of water at the moment, will this help? What do you suggest?

admin answers:

Toothpaste will not help! It’ll promote scarring. I suggest using some ice to reduce the size of it and use a good face wash. Make sure all of your hair is out of your face so no extra oils fall over it. If possible, buy some liquid cover up. There are some that actually help remove acne! I bought mine at target but I don’t remember the brand :/

Treatments For Acne Rosacea

James asks…

Any good products to get rid of acne scars?

I have white skin, and acne scars, luckily I was on acutane(severe acne medicine) for enough time to get rid of the acne from coming, but not too long to pull away some scars, it was too strong and it gave me mood swings.
Is there any good products to help my acne scars go away? Thank you, 10 easy points I guess

admin answers:

Yes Bio Oil is good for scars. Here are some tips that might be helpful:
1) Tea Tree Oil
2) Lemon juice
3) Apple cider vinegar
4) Bamboo extract or Sarna lotion – good for rosacea, psoriasis, eczema
5) Bio Oil or BB cream for dark spots or scars

Applied lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to face or you can drink it through using it in water a few drops a day. Will help with both acne, and scars as well. Another way you can get rid of acne is by taking bamboo extract something I started when I had the problem really does work. Hope this works for you.

OR: Here are seven best methods to clear up blemishes.

Tea-Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is a popular home remedy for acne. An essential oil is diluted and applied topically to acne lesions. How is tea tree oil believed to work? Tea tree oil contains a constituent called terpinen-4-ol that’s thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil’s anti-bacterial activity. Because tea tree oil can kill bacteria, applying topical tea tree oil to acne lesions is believed to kill Propionibacterium acnes, the skin-dwelling bacteria involved in acne.To treat mild, occasional breakouts.
How it works: Distilled from the leaves of an Australian shrub, tea-tree oil contains antibacterial and anti-microbial compounds called terpenoids that help kill the bacteria that, when trapped behind oil in a plugged pore, lead to acne breakouts. Try Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick ($8, burtsbees.com). A roller-ball tube makes for easy application.Studies testing tea-tree oil against the gold-standard acne treatment, benzoyl peroxide, have shown that while the latter works more quickly, tea-tree oil is equally effective over time. And it results in fewer annoying side effects—namely, dryness and redness.

Sulfur
If you have sensitive skin.
How it works: A time-tested, gentle acne fighter, sulfur “acts like a sponge to draw oil out of blocked pores,”. This dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes. Sulfur has a distinct smell—think rotten eggs. Most preparations that use it contain a masking fragrance. However, to play it safe (and avoid scaring off coworkers), apply these products at night.

Salicylic Acid
To treat and soothe red, inflamed blemishes.Salicylic acid can have a calming, anti-inflammatory effect on pimples. “It also breaks down the ‘cement’ between cells in clogged pores to help unplug them,”
Salicylic acid is less irritating than more potent treatments, so it may be better for those with dry skin. It also tends to work well on stubborn blackheads.

Retinoids
Nightly to prevent breakouts.
How they work: Retinoids, which include over-the-counter retinol and prescription-strength Retin-A, reduce acne by altering the oil chemistry on the skin. “They help stop dense sebum from getting stuck within the pores,” says Gross. Without oil deposits, bacteria can’t grow and cause blemishes. Since retinoids can make skin sensitive to the sun, doctors recommend using them at night (and being diligent about wearing sunscreen during the day). To avoid irritation, apply every other evening to start, gradually working up to nightly use. Bonus benefit: Retinoids have been shown to increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making them a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.

Blue-Light Therapy
If you want the latest preventive treatment—and don’t mind plunking down some cash for it.
How it works: Once or twice a week, you use a handheld device to aim a beam of blue light onto your skin. “Its wavelength hits and kills acne-causing bacteria,” so any brewing pimples never come to the surface.This method will not address existing blemishes. Doctors typically suggest combining blue-light therapy with other remedies, such as topical treatments. To make things easy, consider a blue-light device that comes in a kit. At-home devices are smart alternatives to multiple costly treatments at a doctor’s office.

Oral Antibiotics
If you experience painful bumps below the skin surface and your pimples leave lasting marks. “Oral antibiotics act from the inside to kill the bacteria that cause acne,” says Keri. They also reduce the inflammation associated with pimples, so deep-seated blemishes hurt less and leave fewer scars.

Doctors usually prescribe them to get a severe condition under control and may then switch to topical treatments. Some antibiotics must be taken on an empty stomach, so read the label carefully.

Because tea tree oil can kill bacteria, applying topical tea tree oil to acne lesions is believed to kill Propionibacterium acnes, the skin-dwelling bacteria involved in acne.To treat mild, occasional breakouts.
How it works: Distilled from the leaves of an Australian shrub, tea-tree oil contains antibacterial and anti-microbial compounds called terpenoids that help kill the bacteria that, when trapped behind oil in a plugged pore, lead to acne breakouts. Try Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick ($8, burtsbees.com). A roller-ball tube makes for easy application.Studies testing tea-tree oil against the gold-standard acne treatment, benzoyl peroxide, have shown that while the latter works more quickly, tea-tree oil is equally effective over time. And it results in fewer annoying side effects—namely, dryness and redness.

Sulfur
If you have sensitive skin.
How it works: A time-tested, gentle acne fighter, sulfur “acts like a sponge to draw oil out of blocked pores,”. This dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes. Sulfur has a distinct smell—think rotten eggs. Most preparations that use it contain a masking fragrance. However, to play it safe (and avoid scaring off coworkers), apply these products at night.

Salicylic Acid
To treat and soothe red, inflamed blemishes.Salicylic acid can have a calming, anti-inflammatory effect on pimples. “It also breaks down the ‘cement’ between cells in clogged pores to help unplug them,”
Salicylic acid is less irritating than more potent treatments, so it may be better for those with dry skin. It also tends to work well on stubborn blackheads.

Retinoids
Nightly to prevent breakouts.
How they work: Retinoids, which include over-the-counter retinol and prescription-strength Retin-A, reduce acne by altering the oil chemistry on the skin. “They help stop dense sebum from getting stuck within the pores,” says Gross. Without oil deposits, bacteria can’t grow and cause blemishes. Since retinoids can make skin sensitive to the sun, doctors recommend using them at night (and being diligent about wearing sunscreen during the day). To avoid irritation, apply every other evening to start, gradually working up to nightly use. Bonus benefit: Retinoids have been shown to increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making them a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.

Blue-Light Therapy
If you want the latest preventive treatment—and don’t mind plunking down some cash for it.
How it works: Once or twice a week, you use a handheld device to aim a beam of blue light onto your skin. “Its wavelength hits and kills acne-causing bacteria,” so any brewing pimples never come to the surface.This method will not address existing blemishes. Doctors typically suggest combining blue-light therapy with other remedies, such as topical treatments. To make things easy, consider a blue-light device that comes in a kit. At-home devices are smart alternatives to multiple costly treatments at a doctor’s office.

Oral Antibiotics
If you experience painful bumps below the skin surface and your pimples leave lasting marks. “Oral antibiotics act from the inside to kill the bacteria that cause acne,” says Keri. They also reduce the inflammation associated with pimples, so deep-seated blemishes hurt less and leave fewer scars.

Doctors usually prescribe them to get a severe condition under control and may then switch to topical treatments. Some antibiotics must be taken on an empty stomach, so read the label carefully.

Donna asks…

Can detoxing your liver prevent acne outbreaks?

The reason I ask, is because I came across a website of Leo who explained in detail how acne outbreaks are caused. No doctor would tell a patient about the true causes of acne. And it starts with the multifunctions of the liver filtering hormonal and cellular waste from the bloodstream and passing that through the bowels. When excessive waste has accumulated, the liver is sometimes unable to filter and purify the blood completely as it should. So these toxins break loose again and cause acne outbreaks in hands and legs of some people (not all people). Others suffer from other ailments due to a liver malfunction. All I wanted to ask if you are familiar with the true cause of acne outbreaks which can be stress, overexhaustion, depression, anger, which set hormonal toxins free which the liver is sometimes incapable of filtering them all. So treating the liver, detoxing the liver may be a means to cure acne outbreaks fully and mybe also to prevent such an awful disease to take place. A comment please on this issue….

Yes it can, if that is what is causing the acne in the first place.

I used to breakout in acne due to oily skin and have eczema myself. Genetic, Stress and Bacteria can affect hormones and can theoretically promote acne. Here are some home remedies that can help but do not mix them together. You want to make sure you exfoliate your face every other day. Before putting any application on face for acne rinse with cool water then pad dry.

1) Tea Tree Oil- An essential oil is diluted and applied topically to acne lesions.
2) Lemon oil or juice – Applied lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to face or you can drink it through using it in water a few drops a day. You can leave overnight don’t expose yourself to sunlight. Will help with both acne, and scars as well.
3) Mandarin oil
4) Cedar wood – good for eczema, psoriasis
5) Lavender
6) Apple cider vinegar
7) Bamboo extract or Sarna lotion – good for rosacea, psoriasis, eczema 8) Bio Oil or BB cream for dark spots or scars
9) Mederma good for stretch marks and scars
10) Toothpaste is very effective for acne leave on face for about 20 to 30 minutes then wash. Leave on to long will leave a scar.
11) Zinc really works on acne
12) 2% Erythromycin
13) Benzoin Peroxide
14) Hydrogen Peroxide 3% – It can help to dry out acne by killing bacteria on the skin. Soak a cotton ball in hydrogen peroxide and apply it either to the acne breakouts on your face. You also may opt to apply hydrogen peroxide to your entire face to help prevent future breakouts. Allow the hydrogen peroxide to do its job — wait until the bubbling stops in approximately a minute or two. Rinse your face with water. Apply an oil-free moisturizer to prevent skin from drying out.
15) Vitamin B3- also known as niacin. It promotes healthy skin, can be utilized as an acne treatment.
16) Retinoid- increase collagen production and plump fine lines, making it a good choice if you’re dealing with acne and wrinkles.
17) Sulfur- dries up pimples and keeps sebum production in check, helping to prevent future blemishes. Sulfur has a distinct smell think rotten eggs.
18) Coconut oil good for acne and scars.
19) Turmeric powder is also good for acne.
20) Neutrogena products
21) Brown Listerine also sucks the life of your acne wash after about 15 minutes.
22) Witch Hazel & Rubbing Alcohol both are good for acne
23) Aloe Vera either from the plant itself or gel apply on the infected area.
24) Neem oil-good for acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers (taken either orally in capsule or externally in oil)

This is something I use every day and I got rid of my cystic acne and my eczema. I really recommend this. Neem oil: It is powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties, beneficial to those who suffer from various skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, eczema, skin ulcers, helps one treat hair related problems like dandruff and itchy scalp. Dental care products like toothpaste, mouth washes and rinses all use the neem oil’s antiseptic properties to keep teeth health and gums free of infection. Other benefits also include its use in household items like mosquito repellents, disinfectants and personal hygiene products. If you like you can purchase at http://www.amazon.com/ref=ap_frn_logo or in health food stores. It is the same price as some of the acne medications, either prescribe or over-the-counter.
