When hormone levels are out of whack, skin oil production can go
into overdrive causing acne to develop. This is one of the major causes
of acne, especially in females. The relationship between the skins
glands and hormone levels is significant. Try to keep a balance by
avoiding stress, using relaxation techniques, avoiding caffeine and
taking regular exercise.
Diet is also one the most talked about causes of acne- Foods that
cause acne are also the foods that cause acidity. These include all
types of diary products, refined and processed carbohydrates such
as flour and sugar, cooked fats such as in fried foods and red meats.
If you really want to get rid of acne you need to eat less acidic
foods are more alkaline foods. These include fresh fruit and vegetables,
nuts and seeds. Having an over acidic body is like rotting your body
from the inside out. The correct pH level is imperative because without
it, your skin and your health will never flourish. A diet without
all of the above may seem impossible. Our ancestors never use to suffer
from health problems such as acne. Why? Because they didn't leave
in a modern consumer society that lives off fast / junk foods. If
you're prepared to make the effort a good healthy diet is not impossible.
Once your body gets use to good food, you will hate the sight and
smell of bad food.
Harsh skin care products can also be one of the many causes of acne.
Many products that are sold for the treatment of acne actually make
matters worse. Why? Because many of these products contain compounds
that dry the skin out. When the skin is dry sebaceous glands within
the skin produce extra oil in order to compensate. This leads to blocked
pores which of course lead to acne! Beware of what you use and keep
it simple, keep it natural. Also drink plenty of water to prevent
the skin becoming dry from the inside.
Improve Your Eliminations Take one teaspoonful each morning for five mornings, then leave off for five days, and then begin again. Continue this for three or four series and monitor your results.
Here's an odd suggestion but one which was mentioned frequently in the readings. To aid the kidneys and bladder in the elimination process, obtain some plain Coca-cola syrup (which is a natural diuretic) from a health food store. Take a teaspoon of this syrup mixed in a glass of plain water three times a week.
Consult with Your Osteopath or Chiropractor The focus of the adjustments should be to aid the coordination of the superficial and deeper circulation which is often disturbed in people suffering from acne problems.
Wash Twice a Day Bathe the affected area thoroughly twice a day with a natural Castile soap or genuine Black and White soap.
Control Your Diet Eat a diet which consists primarily of vegetables, with small quantities of fish, fowl, and lamb. Avoid all fried foods, carbonated drinks, sweets, pork, and red meat. Limit starches to one per meal.
Two Almonds a Day One reading suggested eating two almonds a day to avoid blemishes. This simple suggestion is certainly worth a try!
Acne Lotion The first step in making this lotion is to add camphor to olive
oil. Do this by heating four ounces of olive oil, then add one ounce of
natural camphor crystals (add cautiously so as not to spatter the mixture
and burn yourself). Then, combine the following ingredients in the order given:
|Camphorated olive oil
|Russian White Oil
Shake this lotion well (it will separate while on the shelf) and massage
into the skin twice a day.
Many may find it odd that an oil-based substance is Suggested to combat
acne. But such therapy makes sense. The massaging of the skin with a camphorated
oil mixture will stimulate the circulation-which will, in turn, assist in
the breakup and elimination of toxins in the system. Remember, Cayce pinpointed
poor circulation and poor elimination as major culprits in the creation
