When people want to cure cystic acne, they want to do it now! It’s no wonder; nodulocystic acne is probably one of the worst mental experience a person can go through. Not only is your face covered in huge acne pustules, but the mental aspects of it are even worse.
With my experience, I know exactly how damaging that mental aspect can be. By the time I was in my twenties, my severe acne had completely taken over my face and my life. I allowed it to dictate if I’d go out with my friends; a lot of times, the acne won out as I was to ashamed to be seen in public. It’s a pretty sad state when you look in the mirror to see if you’re “tolerable enough” to be seen in public.
So I understand why finding a fast way to cure cystic acne is very important. The first thing you must know about curing acne is that you have to take care of the real, internal problems while trying to take care of the temporary set backs on our skin. Acne ultimately starts inside our bodies; the problems on our skin are just reflections of those problems.
For instance, a build up of insulin and toxins in our blood stream leads to our skin cells producing to much oil which clogs our pores. Furthermore, our skin cells also die off faster than normal, also causing them to clog our pores. The acne causing bacteria, which exists naturally on everyone’s skin, feeds on this dead skin and oil inside the pore which leads to breakouts.
But if we prevent the build up of toxins and insulin in the blood stream, then the dead skin and oil won’t get clogged in the pores and the bacteria won’t have anything to feed on. We’ll have stopped the acne before it ever started! To many of the typical acne treatments focus on getting rid of the bacteria from our skin. That is completely impossible; as I stated a minute ago, the bacteria exists there naturally. It exists on every single person’s face in the world. We can’t stop acne by trying to stop the bacteria; it will just keep coming back over and over again. That is why we must focus on the internal problems; we must prevent the acne cycle from ever starting so we can finally become cure.
So here’s a two part plan to stop acne. The short term plan is to help your skin right now heal itself as well as help deal with current breakouts. Stop using chemicals, even if it’s just moisturizer. Chemicals are just abrasive to our sensitive skin and prevent it from healing itself properly. Instead, use items such as raw honey as an anti-bacterial and moisturizer, baking soda as an exfoliator, apple cider vinegar or lemon juice as a toner and oatmeal or egg whites for a weekly mask.
All of these combined are fantastic, natural ways to cure cystic acne. They will help revive your skin and help fight current breakouts. But to get rid of acne for good, we need a long term plan. This includes drinking a lot more water every single day. Start carrying a bottle around with you and drink at least 1.5 liters, if not 2. This flushes the toxins and hormones such as insulin from the blood stream as well as helps your skin to hydrate.
Secondly, completely eliminate dairy. Dairy has insulin like growth factor which contributes to the problem of insulin build up in the blood stream. Reintroduce slowly later if you wish, but for now at least, drink almond or rice milk. I actually still drink these now as cow’s milk is designed to take a baby calf to several thousand pounds in a few weeks. We just aren’t compatible with dairy.
Lastly, Vitamins A and Zinc should become your best friends. Adding 1 or 2 pills of each to your diet will go a long way to curing your acne. They’re well documented in helping acne sufferers. Just don’t overdose on them; taking to much can be dangerous and won’t help get clear any faster.
