Treatments For Acne On Face

Mark asks…

what is the best acne treatment for teens?

My 15 year old daughter has moderate acne on face, chest and back. We’ve tried a lot of over-the-counter stuff, but nothing is really working. Haven’t been to a dermatologist yet though. What is the best over-the-counter treatment and what is best from the dermatologist (besides accutane)?

Acne Vitamin Treatment
There are various natural home remedies for the treatment of teenage acne as well as adult acne. Vitamin A and Niacin seem to be effective in the treatment of acne. There is no “best medication” when it comes to treating this condition because each individual reacts differently to acne treatment. However, homeopathic medication and blue light therapy can be tried in order to get rid of face scars and scars from the back and chest. Vitamin therapy should comprise the intake of 100 mg niacin, three times daily, and 50,000 international units of vitamin A, three times daily. Vitamin E, 400 mg, should be taken once daily. Continue this therapy for a month. You may also increase your intake of foods that are rich in these vitamins. Foods like spinach and kale are good sources of Niacin and should be included in your daily meal if possible. Other sources of niacin include asparagus broccoli, celery, and mushrooms. One of the simplest ways to include these vegetables in your diet is to prepare a salad using these ingredients. You can also add strips of lean white meat to your salad as white meat too is a source of niacin. Liver, carrots, sweet potatoes, and cantaloupe are all good sources of Vitamin A and should also be included in your diet. A simple way to include liver in your diet is to blend a small amount of liver along with a dash of lemon, pepper, and olive oil and use this mixture as a sandwich spread.

Zinc Treatment for Acne
Zinc seems to be the latest arrival in terms of the treatment for acne. Its results seem promising; however, individual reactions and responses to zinc acne treatment may differ. Zinc is available in tablet and in capsule form. In tablet form, it is available as Zinfet – 200 mg. The patient can take a quarter tablet so as to get 50 mg of zinc. In capsule form, zinc is available as Ulseal 220 mg. One-fourth of the powder inside the capsule can be taken as a single dose. The patient can take a dose of 50 mg daily upto one month or till there is noticeable improvement and then reduce the dose to 25 mg. It is important to consult your doctor before you decide to try any home remedies for pimples, or include any type of supplements in your diet. You can include foods that are rich in zinc in your daily diet to make sure that you meet your daily zinc requirement. Wheat germ, pine nuts, cashew nuts, and pecan nuts are all good sources of this mineral. A simple way to include these ingredients in your daily diet plan is to crush them together in a blender and sprinkle the resultant powder over your salads and other dishes. The crushed nuts will also help to add flavor to your food.

Orange Peel Remedy for Acne
Homemade Acne Treatment with orange peel has been found very effective. Pound the orange peel with water on a piece stone and apply on acne affected areas. Orange peels are mildly acidic in nature and help to cleanse the skin of excess sebum. You can make a face scrub out of gram flour and orange peels. This is often used as one of the most effective home remedies for pimples and acne. Dry a few pieces of orange peel and grind them lightly so that you get a coarse powder. Mix this powder with an equal amount of gram flour and then add enough water to this powder to make it a thin paste. You can use fresh carrot juice and tomato juice to the powder instead of water as carrot juice is rich in Vitamin A while tomato juice is mildly acidic in nature. Massage your face with this paste and then leave it on for five minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm or cold water.

Lemon Cure for Acne
A simple remedy at home for acne: Apply lemon juice regularly to reduce pimples and acne. This has proven beneficial results. Lemon juice is acidic in nature and also contains Vitamin C which is beneficial to overall skin health. If you have very sensitive skin, you can dilute the lemon juice with an equal amount of fresh mint leaf juice as this will help to reduce inflammation. This is also one of the popular home remedies for blackheads.

Garlic Remedy for Acne
Garlic has been used successfully to cure acne. Rub with raw garlic several times a day. Garlic is known to cure the toughest of acne problems. The external use of garlic helps to clear the skin of spots, pimples and boils. To cure acne further, eat three seeds of raw garlic once daily for a month. This purifies the blood stream and ensures basic cleansing of blood & keeps acne away. Garlic contains Allicin which is a natural antibiotic agent and this helps to prevent the spread of acne. If you have sensitive skin, you could add garlic juice to a spoon of yogurt and apply this mixture to your face. Yogurt contains several vitamins and healthy fatty acids and helps to moisturize your skin without making it oily.

admin answers:

One amazing and effective acne treatment by choosing to stop eating so much junk food and other foods that are made using vegetable oil, because the more of these foods you consume the more clogged your pores become with oil and other toxins that aren’t healthy for your skin. It’s very important to eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible, foods that promote healthy skin and an overall healthy body. Drinking at least eight glasses of water is another good idea because it can cleanse your body of the bacteria and toxins that contribute to acne breakouts on your skin. Doing all of these things will set you a few huge steps forward in becoming better looking and feeling better about yourself as well.
