Successful remedies for blackheads, rosacea and skin blemishes.
Acne is often seen as an annoying but temporary affliction predominantly suffered by male teenagers. Euphemistically referring to blocked pores as “blackheads” should not distract from the fact that some types of acne are classified as serious illnesses and inflammatory processes in the body. Some of the more serious types also frequently lead to scarring.
The most common type of acne that is caused by hormone changes in puberty and therefore disappears even without treatment when maturity is reached around the age of 20, is a so-called endogenous syndrome, in other words: a disease pattern caused by the body itself.
This is also true for acne caused by metabolic imbalances at a later stage in life – as an endogenous disease pattern it will disappear along with the underlying problem.
Considered a lot more serious are exogenous types of acne that can lead to the formation of fistulas or lumps and are very difficult to diagnose in terms of their origin. There seems to be a direct correlation between the disease pattern and physical condition and life style of the patient. As a consequence, an improvement of the condition can in most cases only be achieved through life-style changes.
Many external remedies don’t bring the hoped-for relief but tend to have the opposite effect instead – especially if they trigger allergic reactions, for example, that aggravate the condition.
For these reasons it can be very difficult indeed to get rid of acne, spots and blackheads. Most acne sufferers have made the discovery that simply buying a new “miracle ointment” is an expensive but ineffective option. So what is Plan B? Try alternative treatment methods or get a prescription for Roaccutan from your dermatologist?
In this book we will tell you the following:
– explain what causes acne, including myths about hormones, nutrition and the terrible teens.
