Once you have your treatment in place it is important to address all of your lifestyle factors to treat the acne holistically i.e. both internally and externally.
The psychological/emotional aspect of acne requires significant attention. There is general agreement that emotional stress and fatigue can trigger and exacerbate acne. Stress and/or sleep disturbance can induce higher levels of hormones and adrenaline, which increases sebum production, leading to clog ged pores. Skin cells are nourished during sleep so it’s important to encourage teens to go to bed early and get their “beauty sleep”. Regular exercise is important to increase blood circulation and bring more oxygen to the skin. The mental and emotional benefits of exercise can also help a teen suffering from acne.
Hormones are produced by the endocrine glands. Healthy hormonal activity is dependent on a well-functioning liver and endocrine system. The liver plays a major role in hormonal balance and in removing toxins from the bloodstream. One of the skin’s jobs is to excrete toxins and poisons from the body. If the liver is not functioning properly, toxins can circulate longer and cause not only poor general health, but acne as well.
In dealing with any health problem, a good diet is always very important in order to create an environment for healing to take place. The typical teenage diet includes many things that are detrimental to general health and could be making their acne worse. The foods to eliminate are processed food, refined sugar and sugar products, foods that contain trans-fatty acids, i.e. margarine, fried foods, soft drinks, and salty snacks. Cut down on dairy if they trigger your acne breakouts.
Foods that are important to add to the diet are fresh fruits and vegetables, particularly those rich in vitamin A carotene – dark green leafy vegetables, and yellow-orange vegetables and fruits (apricots, mangos, carrots, sweet potatoes and squash). It’s also beneficial to drink plenty of water to flush out toxins and transport nutrients.
