Many people will at some point suffer from problem skin related to acne outbreaks, usually due to stress or hormones. Most people believe that pimples are a sign of unclean or dirty skin, but in actual fact over-cleansing typically irritates the kin further. However, hormones can be controlled and there are a number of basis changes that one can make in order to stop breakouts from occurring.


Lifestyle Changes

Regular Exercise:

Exercise is related to a number of positive aspects relating to acne. One of these is the regular release of important endorphin’s that lower the stress levels and decrease the production of oil.


Prevent Touching Your Face

This is generally a lot harder than it sounds, as most people often touch their faces hundreds of times a day. In addition, it is very important not to scratch or pick at pimples. Never squeeze or pop pimples as this causes the introduction of more bacteria and will cause the acne to progress further.


Shower Often

Showering assists in keeping oil production down, rinse away dead skin build-ups and kill bacteria. It is advisable to use a type of mild or medicated cleanser and shampoos made for oily hair. It is very important to shower directly after exercising to get rid of dead cells that have sloughed off from sweating.


Eat Healthy

Food types that have been processed and contain high amounts of unhealthy fats will raise the problems related to acne. Obtaining the correct nutrients that come from protein, vegetable, fruits and whole grains assist the skin in regenerating a lot faster. Focus on: fish, flaxseed, green tea, Probiotics.  Eating fish and flaxeeds  can help tame inflammation and improve acne breakouts.

Probiotics are supplements that help increase the amount of good bacteria in your gut. Too much bad bacteria leads to inflammation = acne (caused by P. bacteria), bloating, fatigue, stress, painful joints, irritable bowel. Taking Probiotics helps to balance the unhealthy bacteria and clear up the skin.
Probiotics can be found in food such as: kefir, yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, fermented condiments, and beet kvass. Probiotic supplements always state the amount of CFUs the product contains. For regular every day usage, you want to be taking at least the equivalent of 10 to 20 billion CFUs per day. If you are fighting acne you may choose more at the beginning of treatment.
