Diet to Prevent Pimples

M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition, Diploma in Diet and Nutrition, Certificate Of Diabetes Education , Ph.D.Nutrition

Diet to Prevent Pimples

Your diet plays very important role to cure acne/pimples. There are many other factors also, which are responsible for the growth of acne but the major one is your diet. Treatment of acne by cream, gel or ointment is not enough. They only suppress the action of the sebaceous (fat) glands temporarily. You can cure acne for a lifetime with proper diet and water intake.

Acne is an inflammatory condition of the sebaceous (that is fat) glands and hair follicles usually found on the face. Acne is characterized by the presence of blackheads, pimples, small superficial sebaceous cysts and scars.

To prevent pimples, eating fresh fruits, green vegetables, drinking plenty of water should be an essential part of your routine and intake of oily fried foods, an excess of sugar-salt should be avoided. To begin with-

  •     Take fruit diet once in a week, which consist of fresh juice, fruits, coconut water and vegetable (green leafy).
  •     Warm water enema should be taken daily to clean the bowels and constipation.
  •     Take a balanced diet with an alkaline base, which consists of sprouted cereals, whole grain cereals and vegetables.
  •     Vitamin a, e and b can be used to treat acne.
  •     Green tea and walnuts help to keep your skin pimple free.
  •     Drinking 8-10 glasses of water every day is good for emission of toxin from the body.
  •     Always try to include low-fat dairy products in your meal. These are a good source of vitamin a.
  •  

Some natural remedies to get rid of pimples:-

  •     Apply hot fomentation to open up skin pores and then rinse skin with cold water.
  •     Sun and air baths by exposing the whole body to sun and air are highly beneficial.
  •     A hot Epsom salt bath twice in a week will be highly beneficial in all cases of acne.
  •     Healing packs made of grated cucumber, oatmeal (cooked), carrot and lemon juice is effective for acne.

1. Include foods in your diet, which are replete in vitamins like Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Also incorporate proteins; eating the right foods can help you get the hair you always wanted. 2. Indulging yourself in regular exercises is also crucial in order to maintain good and healthy hair. 3. Using vitamin E capsules and hair revitalizers occasionally can enhance your hair growth. 4. Avoid using hair dryers as they may damage your hair if used from a close proximity.

I will suggest you to stop licking the lips and use some plain lip balm without any flavouring agents. That will help in protecting your lips. Rest of the treatment can be given only after seeing the condition.

Acne and Homoeopathic treatment
The acne vulgaris is perhaps one of the most dreaded problems many people face. The main cause behind the fear is obviously the degree of “loss of confidence” this problem causes in the population than the actual lesion. But with aptly chosen homeopathic remedies, we can halt the progress of the disease and put an end to the menace by rendering soft supple skin to the ‘beauty-conscious’ generation.
Homeopathy is probably the mildest and safest form of treatment available.there are many remedies for acne
