Stop buying harmful creams, lotions, anti-biotics, and other 'acne cures.' They do not work. I know, because I had SEVERE acne for over 12 years and tried everything on the market with little to no success. All these products do is mask the symptoms of acne, not deal with the root cause (which is inflammation and hormonal imbalances.)
So why do you get acne? Unfortunately, if you get acne it's because you are genetically predisposed to the disease. This is why your friends might be able to eat whatever they want and have clear skin, but you can not. It's an unfortunate hand that we were dealt, but it's also one that can be overcome. Here are 3 tips that WILL help you clear your acne for good if you are disciplined enough to follow them.
1. Change your diet. Diet is one of the largest factors when dealing with acne prone skin. You need to eliminate inflammatory foods and start adding alkaline foods to your diet, preferably whole foods. Vegetable oil is one thing you need to stop eating TODAY if you want to get rid of acne.
2. Supplementation. A few inexpensive supplements will give your body the nutrition it needs that it can not get from diet alone. This will help regulate your hormones and reduce inflammation dramatically. One supplement I highly recommend is Spirulina, which is one of the most nutrient dense super-foods on the planet.
3. Exercise / Sunlight / Fresh Oxygen. These can all be done at once, which is convenient. Exercising helped regulate out of whack hormones and improvements circulation, which in turn forces toxins out of your body. Sunlight and fresh air exacerbate the process in a positive way. Getting just 30 minutes of moderate exercise (try running, basketball, or light weight lifting) 4-5 days a week is enough to get you started.
These 3 things combined in the proper manner WILL cure you of acne in a relatively short period of time, and as long as you stick to it you will have clear skin for good.
