Besides medical acne treatments prescribed by a dermatologist there are also lots of alternative acne treatments that may lower the frequency of your acne breakouts or even cure your acne entirely. In the Chinese medicine the causes of acne are said to be toxicity and heat in your blood streams. Some view acne as a digestive problem where the poisons from poor digestion are discharged into the skin. But all the diverse alternative acne treatments agree that it is crucial to consume a low fat diet with lots of veggies and fruit and maintain a high grade of personal hygiene.

Saturated fat intake should be kept to a minimum, as they can harm the tissue of the body, and also cause inflammation.It has also be proposed to abstain from foods that may cause heat to build up in the body, like garlic, coffee, or spicy foods. Instead consume lots of Vitamin A, it is really important to maintain a nice and healthy skin. Zinc is also proven to work well against acne, because it helps the regeneration process for the skin and keeps the hormone levels of your body balanced. Omega-3 fatty acid found in fish and certain oils is another important element to a clear skin. These acids help keeping the cell membranes intact and support the transport of the nutrients to the skin cells. You may also try Acidophilus capsules, they provide extra help for your body´s digestive system. eat a diet with a lot of high fiber foods to ensure daily bowl movements. For  women with period related acne breakouts it is advisable to increase the intake of Vitamin B6. This vitamin helps to control all the hormones in your body during the menstruation.

a number of acne alternative treatments that may be applied directly to the skin include a honey facial. Just put uncooked honey on your face, leave it on for 5-10 minutes and then wash it off with care. Honey is used for beauty purposes since hundreds of years and revitalizes your skin. Or simply apply tea tree oil to your skin. This has been said to impede bacteria from growing on the skin.

Exfoliants may be used to treat acne and pimples. Also proven to be good are glycolic acid and lactic acid, both acids normally found in most citrus fruits. They reduce the amount of dead skin cells produced by your body. thus lemon juice can be mixed with water and applied to the face. The juice should be allowed to dry on the skin for up to ten minutes and then is should be rinsed off. If one has sensible skin more water may be required to the blend so the individual doesn’t experience too much of a “burning” sensation.

Herbalists have their own concoctions to use as pimple alternative treatments. They suggest evening primrose oil, or black current seed oil capsules. Alternatively some recommend teas with Echinacea or goldenseal.

exercising and rest are also essential parts of the curing acne process, your body needs to be at its peak. so it is essential that you work out regularly, but also give your body time to revitalise. Alternative acne treatments are controversial and whether they work for your case depends on how you stick with them and what type and degree of acne you are suffering from. They may not be truly effective in most doctors´ eyes, but they are worth a shot, they help you improving not only your acne condition, they also boost your overall body health.
