Acne is a common and chronic skin condition. Acne is characterized by the presence of blackheads, pimples, small superficial sebaceous cysts and scars. All forms of acne have their origin in wrong eating habits and the excessive consumption of starch, sugar, fried and/or fatty foods. Chronic constipation is another cause of acne. If the bowels do not move properly, the waste matter is not eliminated as quickly as it should be and the bloodstream becomes infected with toxic matter. The effort of the skin to eliminate the excess waste results in acne and other forms of skin disease. Other cause of this condition are unhygienic living habits, excessive use of tea, coffee, alcohol or tobacco and poor eating habits that lead to indigestion and poor nutrition.
The protocol includes specific supplementation and dietary recommendations. Additionally, natural skin care guidelines and suitable home treatments will be recommended. Many Naturopathic skin care remedies include vinegar, lemon juice, honey, cinnamon, chickpea flour and other household items. For women, hormonal balancing herbs and teas are usually helpful.
