Acupuncture could boost the effectiveness of acne treatment

Safe, drug-free therapy supercharges acne treatment

Facial Acupuncture Mother Nature sure has a strange sense of humor sometimes. For example, practically the very same moment I discovered girls she decided to pepper my face with so many bumps and blemishes I could have been mistaken for a Braille novel.

It used to be that acne was considered a rite of passage for teenagers, but if you’ve ever tried to help a child or grandchild cope with the consequences of a face full of zits, you know it can get serious awfully fast. It can leave kids scarred both emotionally and physically.

Well, while mom was absolutely right that you shouldn’t pick at your face, it turns out that it may be time to start poking at it instead.

A new study out of China has found that acupuncture may be a powerful weapon against stubborn acne. Scientists say that the ancient practice could supercharge the natural acne-fighting treatments you’re already using.

Researchers analyzed 43 trials involving 3,500 patients and found that when acupuncture is added to a treatment plan — especially natural remedies like herbal masks — skin cleared up almost like magic! And not only did the acupuncture improve the performance of masks and topical herbal treatments, it accomplished this impressive task without a single serious side effect.

Acupuncture has already been proven to help regulate raging hormones that can leave your face looking like it was attacked by fire ants. Plus, the practice can help relieve everything from back pain to seasonal allergies.

If you (or someone you care about) are struggling with acne, why not try combining an effective acne treatment… like this natural one recommended by Dr. Wright… with some acupuncture? Your skin could be clearer than crystal in no time flat.

How To Choose The Best Acne Cleaner

Acne can really be a bane. Not only will it discolor or even disfigure your face, it can also be itchy and can lead to dryness of your skin or worse, scarring.  That is why it is      important to wash your face regularly with an effective acne cleaner especially if you are prone to acne. Here are some tips on how to choose the best acne cleanser for you to use.

1.  What form of acne cleanser would you prefer? Ask yourself this question first. Would you prefer an acne cleanser that is in liquid form or one that comes in bar form? Do you want ultra moisturizing and foaming acne cleansers or do you just want the regular, non foaming type? Remember, non-foaming acne cleansers tend to be better since they do not dry your skin that much compared to foaming acne cleansers. Moreover, while it is true that a lot of people do not recommend using bar acne cleansers, there still are great and effective products out there in the market. Just make sure that you go for products that have seals of approval from medical groups or those that are recommended by skin experts.

2. Figure out if you need a medicated or non-medicated type of acne cleanser. This is important because your choice will depend not only on your preference but on the level of inflammation of your skin. Naturally, it’s better to have a medicated type of acne cleanser if you have pretty sore acne. Medicated acne cleansers can be bought over the counter although some products do require prescriptions. These medicated acne cleansers usually contain salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, known cures for acne.

3. In order for an acne cleanser to really do its job, make sure that it is just meant for the face. Meaning if you have back acne or acne on other parts of your body apart from your face, then make sure that you buy separate acne cleansers for that. Your acne cleanser for the face must only be meant for the face. This is because the skin on your face is quite thin and pretty sensitive. It is more delicate compared to your body skin.

4. Get recommendations. Ask a dermatologist for recommendations on what acne cleanser to buy. You can also approach a professional aesthetician. Nothing beats asking the pros!
