Anything that affects the way we perceive ourselves to look can be very stressful. Millions of teens and adults alike spend millions of dollars yearly to be acne free. It’s a very painful experience to go through a chronic acne problem. Most people do not suffer severe acne but rather break out with the occasional zit or pimple. This is usually no less devastating to the afflicted. Many of the medications that are purchased only treat the symptom, or the pimple itself. There are underlying causes that also need to be treated.
Extra amounts of toxins in the human body cause acne. They could be due to excessive hormones as in teenagers or an excess of fats and oils that have not been disposed of properly by the body. If your bowels or kidneys do not rid your body of these toxins in the proper manner, they will do it another way. They will either let it out through your skin or your lungs. This is when pimples happen. The pore becomes clogged with oil waste that has been released through the skin. Here are some tips to prevent and clean up acne/zit/pimple outbreaks.
Skin care professionals generally agree that you should scrub your skin regularly so that your pores do not become infected. Acne that is left untreated can lead to scars.
Don’t pick or scratch at your face.
Try not to wash your face more than twice a day, unless you’ve been outside all day.

Find a good moisturizer.
Buy a spot treatment gel that contains benzoyl peroxide.
Avoid foods like chips, burgers, anything greasy or oily.
Water is the best thing you can do. Drink a lot of water to assist in cleansing your body of toxins.
