Acne Relief for Women
Women's Health - womens health articles

Acne is a skin disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. This condition is mostly present in teens although it can be found in adults too. Acne is a result of excessive sebum (oil) that blocks the pores causing them to inflame.

Acne in women is more persistent then in men. In women, acne tends to last longer and is harder to clear. The major issue with acne is that there isn't one universal way to treat it. What clears the acne for one person may cause a worse acne outbreak in another person. Some people have got very good results from Acne Pills. Acne pills stop the sebum from being produced within the body. They literally stop the production of sebum at the source. Other women have done better with different kinds of Acne Products. Experimenting with different creams, pills and skin care products will help you to find the product that will best treat your acne. Once you find your winning product, stick to it!

In the meantime, here are some tips that will help to control your acne.

  • Drink large quantities of water to detoxify your system.
  • Eat a healthy balanced diet and avoid any foods that make your acne worse. (if you are not sure what foods make it worse, you could try keeping a food diary and listing what you eat everyday, and what your acne is like on the next day. Eventually you will be able to pinpoint what foods make it worse for you).
  • Do not wash your face more then twice a day. Washing your face too often will make it react and produce more sebum.
  • Reduce caffeine since it can make existing acne outbreaks worse.
  • Stick to a skin care regime. If it works, do not change products.
  • Be gentle to your skin. Avoid squeezing or popping pimples at all costs.
  • Do not get sunburnt. It will only make your face turn redder!

Finally, remember that you are not alone with acne. For support and advice with acne issues, an Acne Forum was recently set up. This forum is fast turning into an acne community to help the people with acne. With the right advice and the right products, your acne can be a problem of the past!
