Acne Prevention - A Preemptive Strike Against Acne

April 03, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 92

The war against acne is fought on many fronts, but the one place where acne is at its weakest is beneath your skin. Strike out against it before it rises to challenge you. Acne prevention is truly the only "cure" there is. The word "cure" is used lightly, because there really is no true cure for acne. Acne can happen at any time, to anyone, for many reasons. Knowing the reasons acne occurs is one of the greatest preemptive measures in defeating acne on its home turf.

Acne Prevention -Know Your Enemy

Acne likes to show its ugly head when your body is off battling other things. It likes to sneak up behind you and defeat you while you're busy with other enemies. An acne outbreak generally occurs: at the onset of PMS or puberty, after a change in diet, during times of inactivity, during a specific allergy season, after a change in skin care products, or even when you are ill. If you are female, and you know PMS is coming, take measures to insure that your breakout will be minor or even non-existent. If you know you are allergic to spring flowers and spring is coming, load up on facial cleansers and masks. Now you know, and knowing is half the battle in acne prevention.

Acne Prevention - Destroy or Be Destroyed!

In the ever present battle against the enemy, acne, there are tactical moves that you can incorporate into your daily life to help acne prevention:

• Eat Vegetables and Fruits- Fruits and vegetables are loaded with natural antioxidants that help clean the toxins from your body that can build up under your skin and what cause acne breakouts.

• Proper Skin Care- Human skin, despite its tough exterior, is actually very fragile and sensitive. Sometimes the best way to care for your skin is to use gentle cleansers instead of harsh, abrasive cleansers that can actually cause irritation.

• Exercise- To be fit for any battle, you need to exercise. Exercise gets the heart rate up, which increases circulation. Increased circulation means that your body can rid itself of toxins much quicker. The health is in the blood.

In the Japanese culture, the Samurai were warriors well know for using things around them to dispatch their enemies. In their case, the pen was sometimes mightier than the sword. Like the Samurai, there are many things available in the world around you that can be used efficiently in your battle with acne. Not only are there several acne fighting and acne treatment products in the drug store, there are also some at the produce market. Lemons, garlic, and apple cider vinegar are all natural remedies for acne.

The battle against acne can be a long and grueling one. You have to know your enemy, be willing to fight by any means necessary, and be willing to lose a few good men in the fight (your money). Planning a preemptive strike is easy. Gather your army (your cleansers), prepare for battle (read the instructions), and charge towards acne prevention.
