    A Guide To Eating Nuts When You Have Acne

    For many years, nuts have been considered to be the enemy of acne - believed to make acne worse and cause more breakouts. But recent research seems to point in the other direction of this, saying that this is not the case, and nuts have nothing to do with acne breakouts. In fact, this isn’t the case for most foods that are believed to cause acne. Many leading American scientists have found that, despite widespread rumors, your breakouts are not related to what you eat. Instead, more evidence points to the idea that acne is likely a result of your genes, especially your hormones like androgen and testosterone. View Post

    How To Hide Acne With Makeup?

    If you are someone that struggles with acne, you know how awful it can be. Aside from all the pain and upkeep that comes along with acne, there’s another part to it that might be worse to handle than anything else. And that is your self-esteem.

Luckily, while you work on healing your acne and acne scars, makeup has your back (or should I say face!)

    Why is Teen Acne Becoming a Common Issue Today?

    It’s a well-known fact that acne affects teen far more often than anyone else. Hormonal changes are usually to blame for this as this is the time when these changes occur the most. For most teens, puberty happens between the ages of twelve and sixteen, and this is the time that teens are most likely to struggle with acne. During this time, teens have extra hormones in their body and their bloodstream, and this leads to acne problems for both males and females. Luckily, this skin condition can be treated with the right oral medications and ointments. View Post

    Treat Acne With Cucumber

    If you suffer from acne, you know that it’s no fun to deal with. Breakouts on your face and neck are a real cosmetic dilemma, and not only can those red and swollen bumps put a dent in your appearance, but they also cause a lot of pain and discomfort. These pesky breakouts are caused by an increase in oil secretion from the sebaceous glands. This makes it easier for the glands to trap dirt and other impurities beneath the surface, causing bacteria to grow and infections to emerge. Other things that can cause acne include hormonal imbalance, stress, pregnancy, bad hygiene, and an unhealthy lifestyle. If you are looking for a way to get some relief from your acne, then look no further.  View Post

    The narrow approach that many old-school conventional dermatologists take is to say that acne is simply caused by your genetics and hormones. It completely dismisses any other factors that could be contributing to acne. This way of viewing acne would mean that all cases are exactly the same. Conventional treatments further show their support for this idea by holding a “one treatment suits all” mentality when it comes to prescribing acne medications.ors. View Post
