Here is another article which shares some home made natural remedies for face acne. They also go into details about chemical peels and what they can do. We are not big supporters of chemical peels as all types of acne and severity can be treated naturally, provided you treat your acne from inside out. As you know, acne is an internal condition, treating only the symptoms is not enough to get rid of acne
If pimples and acne scars on the face are bothering you, try putting some garlic juice or a mud pack. Or if you are game for medical help, laser treatment and chemical peels are an alternative, say dermatologists. The acne problem usually starts around the age of 10-13. Though many get rid of it by their 20s, for some it lingers. ”In teenagers, there are two things that trigger acne problem. First is hormonal changes in their body. In boys, it is the increased secretion of testosterone and in girls, the levels of both testosterone and oestrogen rises,” Chytra V. Anand, cosmetic dermatologist, Kosmoderma Clinics, Bangalore, told IANS. ”Due to these hormones the oil secretion in the body increases and the skin becomes oily and more prone to acne and breakouts. The other trigger for acne is bacterial infection,” she added.
Although this article states that medical treatments are better than natural treatments, evidence keeps proving the opposite. More people have become acne free by adopting natural methods and targeting the actual cause which is always internal, than those who have used medication drugs which only treat the symptom. As soon as people stop taking the medications or over the counter products, the acne returns and sometimes worse than before. Do not believe everything so called experts claim.
