Foods That Keeps the Acne at Bay

Foods That Keeps the Acne at Bay

Here we will discuss about acne and exactly what is the food for treating it.

What is Acne?

Actually Acne is characterised by the disorder of hormone  and other substances on the skin’s oil glands (sebaceous glands) and hair follicles. Sebum is secreted by these glands which  lubricate the hair and skin.

Acne causes when oil and dead skin cells plug the pores. Acne usually occur on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders.

The exact cause of acne is not clear, but our researches show that it’s due to an increase in hormones called androgens (male sex hormones). These increase in both boys and girls during puberty and cause the sebaceous glands to enlarge secreting more sebum. Pregnancy or starting or stopping birth control pills can also cause acne.

Another factor is heredity or genetics. Some drugs like androgens and lithium can cause acne. Greasy cosmetics may disturb the cells of the follicles and make them stick together and close the pore leads to cause acne.

How can cure acne through foods?

Dark Green Leafy Vegetables:- It includes spinach, kale, broccoli, are high in manganese, which is needed for collagen formation in the skin cells, keeping your skin nourished and not dried out. Manganese also supports mineral transport and absorption which keeps your skin healthy. Dark leafy greens are also abundant in Vitamin A, which is great for clearing up acne and promoting skin repair.

Fruits:- Vitamin A is very good for skin health, repairing and maintaining skin cells and keeping skin moist and supple So lacking of vitamin A may leads dry and flaky skin, Also rich in antioxidants which protect from free-radicals. found abundantly in yellow colours fruits like mango, papaya, etc.

Nuts:- Nuts are one of the best for  complexion Containing abundant in vitamin E, another great vitamin for limiting sun damage and signs of aging. Almonds provide lots of this vitamin, which also protect from fine lines and wrinkle.

Fish:- Fish such as salmon sardines are very high in Omega-3 fatty acids, and it has been known that foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids are good for the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, increasing the thickness of skin and making it softer, smoother and more moist. Having enough Omega-3 fatty acids in your diet may also decrease your skin’s sensitivity to the sun’s UV rays, and fatty fish is a wonderful way to get plenty of these nutrients into your body.

Dark chocolates:- chocolate is the best source responsible for glowing up of acne. Chocolates are rich in antioxidants and flavonols, and are also responsible for improving skin’s texture, smoothness, and elasticity as well as also plays an important role in hydrating your skin.

What is Aesthetic Medicine?

MBBS, Diploma in Venerology & Dermatology (DVD)
Dermatologist, Delhi
What is Aesthetic Medicine?

Aesthetic medicine is a developing branch of medicine and scientific research. The objective is to cosmetically enhance an individual's physical appearance with nominally invasive procedures. It is a modern field and is not just restricted to plastic surgeons and dermatologists. Most medical specialists can offer services in the field of aesthetic medicine.

The major types of procedures and techniques are:

1. Surgical techniques

  • Liposuction: This is a surgical cosmetic technique, which is used to remove fat from certain areas of the body to re-shape the body and reduce weight.
  • Facelifts: A facelift is a surgical procedure, which is done to restore the healthy and youthful features of the skin by injecting dermal fillers (soft tissue) into the hollow or sagging parts of the face or neck.
  • Radiofrequency ablation: In this medical procedure, a radio wave produces electric current and eliminates the diseased or non-functional tissues. The technique has applications outside aesthetic medicine too, such as treating tumors, chronic pain, heart problems, etc.
  • Hair transplant: Hair transplantation surgery is a procedure where the hair follicles are surgically removed from a donor site and implanted on the recipient side to cover up bald spots. The hair follicles are taken from the patient and so, the grafted hair continues its natural growth after surgery.

2. Non-Surgical techniques

  • Radio frequency skin tightening: This is a non-surgical alternative to facelifts and it produces the connective tissues (collagen and elastin) in order to remodel the tissues and tighten the skin of the face and the neck.
  • Chemical peel: A chemical peel is a type of skin treatment, which is used to smoothen and improve the texture of skin. It is especially done for the facial skin to remove lines, folds and wrinkles. The procedure causes the dead skin cells to peel off and the new skin that appears is more even and youthful.
  • Non-surgical liposuction: This procedure is done using laser energy and ultrasound and the subcutaneous fat cells are eliminated. There is no suction, incision or injection involved.These techniques are of lower risk as compared to surgical weight loss procedures.
  • Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Hair Removal: The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) procedure involves a spectrum of wavelengths (similar to those of a light bulb), which are targeted at the skin and some of the wavelengths can remove body hair. Laser hair removal is slightly more effective than IPL because it involves a focused beam of light in one specific wavelength, which targets the hair follicles of your skin.

Individual examination, case analysis, your medical history, your physical, mental and emotional constitution and your susceptibility to the disease are all very important considerations in determining the exact homeopathic remedy for you. It is effective, harmless and without side effects. Along with follow this tips to get rid from pimples, * wash your face as often as 3-4 times a day. *Use a gentle face wash when you wash your face and scrub face twice a week. * Avoid spicy, oily and sugary food. * Drink plenty of water and take healthy and balanced diet. * Drink juices - whenever you are struggling with pimples, juices are always in the rescue and help you achieve flawless skin.

Apple is a miracle fruit for the skin.The alpha hydroxy acids or AHA’s present in apples improves skin color and elasticity of the skin.Soak peeled apple slices in milk for 20 minutes and then blend to form a creamy paste.Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, and then mix a tsp of lemon juice, apply all over your face and neck.Rinse off after 15 minutes with cool water and massage an ice cube.The skin looks baby soft, smooth with a rosy white glow.Follow this for a week to get fair skin naturally. or All the natural ingredients (Tretinoin, Hydroquinone and Cortisone) inlcuded in Melamet have only one goal: to improve your skin tone. Tretinoin helps prevent and treat acne and wrinkles by peeling off dead skin cells. Hydroquinone is the skin lightener agent in this equation that improves the overall tone of your skin. Cortisone is an anti-allergy ingredient that reduces inflammation and/or itching.' How to Use: Use the Melamet Cream just before bedtime. Wash it off in the morning, and apply some sunscreen if you intend to go outdoors. Failure to do so will cause significant damage and even result in your skin turning black.

My pimples never leave me alone. All along there. I am irritated now, parents told they will be there until you will be 20. But now I am 26+ still not leaving me alone. Please suggest me what should I do.Really irritated me. Due to this skin became blackish too. Now I use any fairness cream, pimples in numbers come side by side. I started using powder form of skin brightness but still all in vain. Some told me to cover your face with multani mitti. Used it too but nothing changes. No sign of improvement was there. Please suggest me what should I do. Because I am really frustrated by this.

First of all try to be confident in yourself. By frustration your hormone levels will fluctuate & you will not be cured at all. Gently clean face with dettol skin care soap 2 times a day. Avoid lotions powders so far as possible. Avoid direct sunlight. Take tab. Terbinaforce (250mg) daily for 1 week. Take plenty water & other liquids with citrus containing fruits.

Local application of coconut oil or mustard oil or some soothing and calming lotion may provide relief in itching. Neem is one among the best blood purifier and detoxifier known to ayurveda. It enhances immune system and neem oil is an antiseptic in itself. Leaf extracts are used in antiseptics and can be effectively used in treating skin diseases. It destroys fungus and bacteria and is best for almost all kinds of skin diseases including redness of skin and itching.
