Remove Scars Naturally

Do you have scars on your body that you want to get rid of? Don’t fret. There are ways on how you can remove scars naturally and effectively.  First off, remember that while you can treat scars from the outside, you can actually also treat them from the inside. Meaning you can drink something in order to treat these physical scars. One of the things you can drink are vitamin E capsules. Drink these regularly to remove scars naturally. Alternatively, you can also use the contents of these vitamin E capsules to treat your scars. Just pry open the capsules, separate the powder and then place these directly on your scars.

Another method that you can do in order to remove scars naturally is to apply aloe vera on your scars. If you have aloe vera plants in your backyard, then well and good. On the other hand, you can either ask from neighbors who have aloe vera plants or you can buy from organic stores. Still, you can use products that contain aloe vera. Just apply the product or the raw aloe vera on your scar. This will help remove scars naturally.  The third method you may want to consider in order to remove scars naturally is the use of tea tree oils. Tea tree oil products can be purchased from just about any drugstore or department store. Rub the oil on the scar regularly and several times each day. You can remove scars naturally this way.

Another product you can use is green tea. Blanche the green tea and then, with the use of a cotton ball, apply the liquid on your scar. When done regularly and several times each day, your scars will naturally disappear. Did you know that you can also use ice cubs to remove scars naturally? All you have to do is rub ice cubes on the affected skin. Regular rubbing will help treat the scars. Meanwhile, research has shown that olive oil as well as yoghurt and oatmeal can help remove scars naturally as well. Just mix the yoghurt and ground oatmeal. Douse a little bit of lemon juice and then blend. Once the paste is done, apply it on the scar for a few minutes. This help well remove the scars naturally.

Finally, you can slice a clove of garlic. Rub the garlic directly on the scar. This will help remove scars naturally. Rub as regularly as you can. Just don’t forget to wash your scar after a while since the garlic’s odor might still stay.

The Good Will Hunting Paralegal: Raging Menopausal Pimples

Or Struggling with Acne Rosacea at Age 50 ~ Part 1

I’m not really trying to be the face of middle-aged acne rosacea, but I want to talk about it because I know I’m not alone in struggling with this painful and often painfully embarrassing disease. It’s not uncommon among women of a certain age, but many remain untreated. I know I want to be a big girl and not care about something as trivial-seeming as a few zits, but acne rosacea, especially during severe flare-ups, is much more painful and disfiguring than the occasional pimple. It’s hard to ignore, because frankly it hurts, itches, and burns. From my perspective, pimples are not better than wrinkles.

I remember having some pretty unsightly acne when I was in my teens. I was (and still am) acutely shy, and preferred not to be noticed, but sometimes classmates made rude comments about my bad skin. My elders would comfort me with, “Just wait until you’re out of your teens, your hormones will settle down, and you’ll have lovely skin!”

If only those elders could see me now, with much more severe acne rosacea, that in many cases just gets worse with age, especially with the raging hormones of menopause. If I could hide in my office, great, but I frequently meet the public, and well, have this thing called a budget style blog. Taking pictures of myself required shedding some self-esteem issues over time, because I was always the one never in photos. Recently, I’ve started avoiding photos again because my skin has gotten so bad.

I took some self-portraits with and without a new mineral foundation today, at the clearing up stage of a bad breakout (couldn’t work up the nerve during last few weeks) on a new skin care plan, and with my typical orange makeup face (because I haven’t found a foundation that doesn’t make me look orange). I can’t just not wear make-up at all. Well, I guess I could, but uuummmm, no. I like light make-up and won’t wear multiple heavy layers, so forget the layering of the green, the white, etc. often recommended for acne sufferers.

Acne rosacea has various degrees of presentation and severity, some of it pretty darned gross, including facial redness, bumps and pimples, red patches, eye irritation, and even recurrent styes.

I enjoyed some relatively acne free years in my 20s and 30s, but was diagnosed with adult acne in my late 30s. I was prescribed topical antibiotics that had to be kept refrigerated, and seemed to take about six months to clear up my increasingly bad skin.

Although no one diagnosed it at the time, I had signs of ocular rosacea in the form of repeated styes, one even requiring eye surgery (super gross). What stopped the recurring styes was my eye doctor’s suggestion to wash my eyes every day with baby shampoo, plus my primary care physician prescribed a topical antibiotic (one that didn’t have to be kept in the fridge) for what was still being called adult acne.

Then about two years ago, all hell truly broke loose on my face. No matter how gentle I was with my skin care, I had huge angry-looking break-outs that would not resolve within a few weeks, to the point my skin sometimes became cracked, bumpy, and very red, especially my nose and cheeks, but also my forehead, chin, and jawline.

I finally saw an dermatologist who correctly diagnosed acne rosacea. He prescribed a topical antibiotic, as well as a special oral medication that cleared up flare-ups extremely quickly – but also costs a fortune and has quite the set of embarrassing side effects of its own. The co-pay was high, too. I only took it for the very worst flare-ups, but I found out last week that my insurance won’t cover it any more – when a pharmacy associate asked, “Are you sure you want to pay $460 for this?” Which almost caused a heart attack right there at the cash register, and she rightly gathered the answer is no.

Next week, in Part 2 of this series, I’ll talk about some of the new skin care tips that really seem to be helping me – and my search for a new mineral makeup that doesn’t turn my face orange. My dermatologist’s nurse recommended the drugstore brand I’m trying now, to save some money, but also urged me to try MAC Cosmetics mineral foundation, swearing that the higher cost of the makeup is absolutely worth it.

If you’re a fellow acne rosacea sufferer, I’d love to hear some of your tips for keeping flare-ups to a minimum – and whether you’ve found the perfect foundation yet.

The lowdown on acne vulgaris – what it is and how you can treat it

Acne vulgaris usually affects the face but it can also be found on the upper part of a person’s chest, back and other parts of the body. Characterized by seborrhea or scaly red skin, acne vulgaris can be itchy and inflammatory. Acne vulgaris can also come in the forms of blackheads and whiteheads or otherwise known as comedones, pimples or pustules, large papules or nodules and pinheads or regular papules.

Acne vulgaris gets triggered when a person’s testosterone increases. Contrary to popular belief, testosterone can also be found in women; ergo, they are also prone to acne. Acne vulgaris usually gets triggered during puberty and people may still have to deal with this type of skin disease well into their adult years. In order to treat acne vulgaris, there are several options that one can choose from. From medications to antibiotics to even surgery, a person who has acne vulgaris has several treatment options. For medications, it is recommended to use benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid and retinoids. Skin experts also recommend using antibiotics, anti-seborrheic medication, alpha hydroxy acid, kera-tolytic soaps, nicotinamide and azelaic acide.

Topical retinoids can also be used to treat acne vulgaris. These include tretinoin, tazarotene and adapalene. These retinoids are related to Vitamin A, which is good for the skin since the infusion of Vitamin A to the inflamed skin can aid the treatment process. There are also oral retinoids available in the market today. Daily oral intake of these retinoids for a period of about 4 to 6 months can help address a person’s problem with acne vulgaris. Meanwhile, hormones or hormonal treatments can also be used to treat this type of skin disease. In progressive countries these days, oral contraceptives that contain progestin drospirenone are used.

Accordingly, there are fewer side effects. Now for really advanced cases of acne vulgaris, a dermabrasion procedure may be in order. This surgery procedure may be the last resort for those who really have damaged skin. Dermabrasions are cosmetic medical processes whereby the skin surface is removed through sanding or abrasion. According to experts, dermabrasion is effective especially for the removal of scars due to acne.

Acnezine Tips For Day To Day Acne Care

Acnezine treatment for your acne should be accompanied by a healthy skin care routine. Wash the affected area twice a day with mild soap. Use soap such as Dove, or one that contains benzoyl peroxide, such as Oxy-5. Wash as often necessary to keep the area clean. Do not scrub. Shampoo the hair regularly. Keep long hair off the face and shoulders and wash it daily. Avoid shaving as much as possible; while shaving take care to avoid nicking the pimples. Use a fresh shaving blade to minimize the chance of spreading the infection.

Avoid use of make-up or cosmetics in areas prone to acne. If you have to wear make-up, use only the hypoallergenic or fragrance free kind. Don’t pop, pick, scratch, or squeeze your pimples. This may cause infection and scarring. You may use an over-the-counter treatment that contain substances such as benzoyl peroxide (gel or cream) or salicyclic acid. Start with the lowest strength and apply once a day about half an hour after washing. Never use more than 5 percent strength without consulting a physician.

Food and Nutrition Recommendations for Acne:Some doctors believe that acne is not a food related problem. Some alternate practitioners use diet as a basis for their treatment of acne. They recommend that acne patients should eat foods high in beta-carotene, such as carrots, pumpkin, cantaloupe and other yellow-orange fruits and vegetables. They should also avoid fatty foods. Acnezine controls the oil secretion in your body to protect your skin from getting acne prone.

Vitamin Therapy for Acne:Nutritionists generally suggest:Chromium supplements – Chromium helps boosts the body’s ability to break down glucose.Vitamin A – reduces sebum and keratin production. (Caution: taking mega doses of Vitamin A can cause headaches, fatigue, muscle and joint pain and other side effects. Consult a qualified practitioner before taking mega supplements).Vitamin E – an antioxidant (200 to 400 IU a day).Vitamin B-6 50 mg per day. This vitamin aids in the metabolism of hormones and supports the function of Acnezine as well.

Note: People should not try to medicate themselves or others with any of the methods referred to here without the guidance of a qualified practitioner who is thoroughly familiar with both the remedies and the individual’s medical status. Acnezine is an antioxidant, natural product without any side effect that reduces acne.
