Occurring during puberty, acne is a skin problem (for that reason, it is also called “youth buds”). The sebaceous glands’ seals get clogged, forming the so-called “blackheads” (comedones) and redheads that have purulent tops.
Acne may develop on the face, on the chest, or on the back. The unpleasant thing about it is that it leaves scars that are very difficult to erase. This is an issue that is more common in boys than in girls.
With the majority of people, the acne disappears or slowly fades away when a person reaches 20 years of age.
How to Eat If We Have Acne in an Effort to Eliminate It
Cosmetics alone cannot cope with acne unless serious attention is paid to the food we consume. When one is having an acne skin, a dietary regime is a good tool to treat it and prevent the problem. The causes of the disease are not on the surface of the skin but are hidden inside the body and are directly or indirectly related to the condition of the gastrointestinal tract.
To eradicate acne, it is recommended to avoid the following foods:
- soft drinks;
- milk, butter, and cream;
- wafers, sweets, and chocolate;
- greasy lamb, mutton, or pork meat;
- white bread;
- chips, pizza, and junk food.
Besides that, it is necessitated to boost the consumption of fruits and vegetables, as well as drink at least 2 liters (68 oz) of water daily.
THE BATTLE WITH ACNE REQUIRES TONS OF PATIENCE AND APPROPRIATE COSMETICS
Acne skin necessitates special care. When one starts a treatment, it is desirable not to interrupt it. On the contrary, it is necessary to take long care, which can last for years, so it is good to arm yourself with very serious doses of patience.
If appropriate cosmetics are used after the treatment for this type of skin problem, the results will remain for a long time.
For many adolescents who suffer from acne, it is an immense challenge to deal with it not only physically but also mentally. It is a grand test that they have to pass through to believe in themselves and always appreciate their appearance.
