Acne occurs when the oil that is produced by the sebaceous glands, which are located in each hair follicle, becomes trapped, encouraging the growth of bacteria that in turn multiply and cause the surrounding skin to become inflamed.
Acne tends to affect young males more than females as the male hormones stimulate the production of keratin and sebum, which lead to the pores clogging.
Obviously it is important to keep the skin extremely clean and free of excess bacteria.
Many other factors can also contribute to the occurrence of acne and when it comes to treating any acne condition I’m afraid correcting the diet comes first.
It is important to avoid all added sugars, white breads, fast foods, all soft drinks especially coke, and keep up the fresh fruit and juices as well as more fresh vegetables, brown rice, wholemeal breads etc.
Add lots of garlic and onions as they act as antibiotics and can help keep bowel flora healthy.
Try and buy organic foods to increase mineral levels or if this is not possible just supplement with extra minerals, especially Zinc.
