Get Over Acne [infographic]

March 16, 2012 |  by  |  Health

Who else remembers middle school as the best time of their life? Oh, no one… Middle school was filled with bad decisions and fluctuating hormones. Acne didn’t help. Acne is a health problem effecting thousands of young adults and can be quite a problem.

There are a few solutions to acne whether it be a facial scrub or a more serious solutions involving a dermatologist. I was lucky enough to never have bad acne and a facial scrub a few times a week will keep my face pretty clear. I also wash my pillow cases multiple times a week. I don’t know the science behind it, but this has had some of the best results. [Via]

    fellow sufferers,FYI:
    ZITS by Robert Cohen Acne occurs when steroids (androgens) stimulate the sebaceous glands within the skin’s hair follicles. These glands then secrete an oily substance called sebum. When sebum, bacteria and dead skin cells build up on your skin, the pores become blocked, creating a zit. What do you expect? When teenagers combine their own surging hormones with dietary saturated animal fat, cholesterol, steroid hormones, dead white blood cells, and cow pus, they’re gonna get zits. The good news: The cure is an easy one: NOTMILK! “As pointed out by Dr. Jerome Fisher, ‘About 80 percent of cows that are giving milk are pregnant and are throwing off hormones continuously.’ Progesterone breaks down into androgens, which have been implicated as a factor in the development of acne…Dr. Fisher observed that his teenage acne patients improved as soon as the milk drinking stopped.” Don’t Drink Your Milk, by Frank Oski, M.D. (Director, Department of Pediatrics, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine)

    “79% of former acne suffers said any self-esteem issues acne may have cause them are no effect them.”


    PS. “Suffers” is a verb. “Sufferers” is a noun.
