Acne Breakouts

What causes acne breakouts and blackheads?

Acne is one of the most common skin conditions, affecting 85% of teenagers and up to half adults aged over twenty-five. Acne forms when glands in the skin produce excess oil which combines with cells in the skin and clogs the pores. Normal bacteria grow in these pores and the body’s response causes inflammation or reddening of the skin that we associate with acne.

Acne can be aggravated by hormones, diet and digestion (sluggish liver or bowel, a diet low in zinc and magnesium or a high GI diet) and toxic factors (smoking, medications, recreational drugs and party pills).

Lifestyle Tips for acne breakouts and blackheads:

Your skin is affected by your hormones and emotions which are tricky to control! Try to minimise stress where you can. Increase your water intake to at least two 750ml bottles of water per day. If you smoke, your skin (and not to mention health) will benefit from stopping. Diet wise eat more antioxidant-rich foods (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, red delicious, granny smith and gala apples, prunes, plums, cherries, pecans and russet potato) and reduce dairy (especially cheese), saturated fats and red meat. Ensure you are having enough vitamin C, magnesium and zinc and reduce coffee and alcohol consumption.

For Active Acne: You may wish to consider seeing a naturopath as this can be triggered by spicy food, preservatives, fried foods, milk and yeast. Change your pillowcase and face cloth daily.
