The appearance of acne is the first sign of internal health problems. And most often the reason lies in disorders of the digestive and endocrine systems. Therefore, it is necessary to treat acne, first of all, from the inside and only then act on them from the outside.
It is necessary
- - vitamins;
- - chamomile, mint or pine for lotions or steam baths;
- - grated potatoes, strawberries, tomatoes for anti-inflammatory masks;
- - paraffin therapy.
Treatment of acne and elimination of red spots after them should be with the simultaneous prevention of the appearance of new inflammations on the face. To do this, find out the possible causes of acne. And since they are diverse, it is better to consult a beautician. Adjust your diet yourself, as some foods do nothing to promote skin health.
Eliminate fatty, fried, smoked foods, baked goods and pastries. Limit milk, potatoes, tea, coffee, chocolate. Enrich your diet with fresh vegetables and fruits, cereals (preferably on water or with a minimum amount of milk), gray breads (preferably yesterday's or in the form of crackers). Drink at least 2 liters of clean water daily.
If possible, make a trace element analysis, the biosubstrate of which is skin, hair, nails and blood. Perhaps the cause of acne is a deficiency of vitamins and minerals, and especially vitamin A, E, C, iron and sulfur. Add their prophylactic doses (in the form of finished products) to your diet.
Cleanse your face every week with a steam bath or steam bath. Regular removal of accumulated toxins and acids from the skin brings the best effect when treating red acne externally.
Wash your face only with boiled (room temperature) water. Add herbal decoctions to it, which have a bactericidal and anti-inflammatory effect. These are calendula, chamomile, mint, pine. Use the same herbs for lotions on the site of rashes.
Apply anti-inflammatory masks. These include the pulp of raw potatoes (wrap in several layers of gauze and apply to the inflamed areas for 10 minutes), pulp of strawberries, tomatoes.
Make a 20-day course of paraffin applications on the skin of the face. Molten hot paraffin (60 ° C) warms up the deeper layers of the skin, improves blood supply and nutrition of the upper layer (epidermis). Paraffin therapy is especially useful for treating red acne spots. You can do this procedure yourself, having familiarized yourself with all the subtleties and contraindications, or give this opportunity to a professional cosmetologist.
Sunbathe regularly. They improve blood circulation and blood supply to the skin, due to which there is a rapid restoration of its stratum corneum. Moreover, ultraviolet rays have a bactericidal effect, which is important in the treatment of red acne. However, do not expose your face to direct sunlight to avoid the opposite effect.
