Causes: Certain drugs can cause acne, including steroids and certain birth control pills, among others. Hormone fluctuations are frequently the culprit as well, of course, hence the correlation with puberty. Deficiency in essential fatty acids (like O3 and O6) can contribute too, as can food sensitivities. (For more explanations, see Naturopathic Treatments, below.)

Nutrition is very important when it comes to maintaining your skin and getting rid of that annoying skin conditions such as acne. This feature goes into the importance of why nutritions plays an important role in keeping our skin looking great and getting that healthy glow.   At one point or another in our lives we have all suffered from the embarrassing blemish or skin rash. Our skin is our body’s largest organ and allowing toxins to exit through it is a way our bodies fight disease. This is why fever accompanies almost any illness. Our body will increase its core temperature and push the toxins out by causing sweat. Toxins can come in the form of bacteria and viruses, but they can also be caused by foods that are poorly digested. When undigestable food particles enter our bloodstream our body will launch an immune attack on the foreign particle. This leads to us being in a state of inflammation.
