10 TIPS - ACNE Reasons

Let’s start with the definition of acne. Whenever you speak with someone about a subject, regardless of the subject, make sure to know the dictionary definition of the words being used. 

With time, you will realize just how much daily conversation is held by everyone around you, with people NOT knowing the real definition of what they are saying.

The reason for my definitions in my posts is to give you that type of information.

What is acne?  According to Wiki- Acne definition :

This article is about a skin disease common during adolescence. For other acneiform skin diseases, see Acne (disambiguation).

Acne, also known as acne vulgaris, is a long-term skin disease that occurs when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin.[10] It is characterized by blackheads or whiteheads, pimples, oily skin, and possible scarring.[1][2][11] It primarily affects areas of the skin with a relatively high number of oil glands, including the face, upper part of the chest, and back.[12] The resulting appearance can lead to anxiety, reduced self-esteem and, in extreme cases, depression or thoughts of suicide.[3][4] 

Now that we have this synopsis of what acne is, I will share that I managed to go thru puberty and all of high school without a single pimple. Not one.

When I turned 24, I suddenly developed the most grotesque facial acne. Other changes happened in my body as well, that were just bizarre, but the point of this post is acne. 

I allowed the infection to grow out of control before I finally scheduled a medical appointment. My denial kept me complacent that the “recent” acne was just a passing phase and that my skin would heal all on its own. After all, I never had acne before.

Once the infection had spread to my neck and shoulders, I sought out medical help. The physician ordered antibiotics and explained that adult acne was actually quite common. WHAT!? I was horrified.

After leaving my medical appointment, I scheduled an appointment with the best facial woman in NYC. By best, I mean, Mean Christine. Anyone who cares about skincare and has ever lived in NYC knows about the legendary, Mean Christine. Her business is Christine Chin. I am happy to promote this woman. She is incredible.

I made an appointment and spent my $700 on my first facial. (This was 2004 money). 

She healed my skin over many appointments and I never took an antibiotic. HOWEVER, I will caution that some people DO need medical intervention and I do not suggest that anyone reading this post disregard medical advice. 

Today I posted the two pictures below on my Instagram: @elizabethsite

While the post above explains what causes the “look” of acne, below, I shared “ways” to help prevent acne from developing, what factors have been medically proven to worsen the condition and ways to ease symptoms, naturally.

For my readers with sensitive skin, I highly recommend that you consult with a licensed and reputable esthetician. I also recommend everyone learn how to perform facials at home or consistently keep your appointments with your favorite esthetician.

Having sensitive skin does not exclude you from an appropriate skincare routine. Your sensitive skin simply means that you must be creative with your chosen products.

I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin. I’ve made a business out of coaching skincare, teaching my personal recipes and formulas that I use for my DIY makeup. All of these subjects are taught during my Mon- Sat online classes. Once per month I hold a workshop as well. 

The picture below is what I shared on Instagram yesterday. Again, I strongly urge you to educate yourself on products or for you to sign up and follow bloggers like me, who will post a lot of information for you. You can join my email list to receive coupons, freebies, nutrition information, makeup tips, vegan recipes and much more.

According to the USDA, each glass of cow milk contains one drop of PUS.

The FDA approved the slogan, “Milk does a body good.” Marketing animal agriculture seems to take a priority over human health. “Milk” does not do a body good. Dairy has been linked to many illnesses, including breast cancer and leukemia.

Personally, when I used to eat dairy, the backs of my arms and the backs of my legs would be invaded with small whitish bumps. The dermatologists would all say that it is a genetic mutation caused by my genes, being of Latin descent.

Not sure how to label these statements, because once I stopped being a vegetarian and became a vegan, ALl of those bumps disappeared. Turns out the racist/ignorant/ yet well meaning comments by the top physicians I consulted with were based on knowledge that is neither factual nor medically based.

To this day, when I meet a dermatologist, I ask them the cause of the bumps behind the arms and legs. Their first question is whether the patient is Hispanic or not. While I am not sure where this myth began, I do know that it is being promoted by the medical community.

I am lactose intolerant, as many people around the world are, regardless of our ethnicity.

If you sign up for my emails, you will receive a lot of information on skincare but also on food.

There are incredible benefits to eating raw fruits and vegetables. I share easy recipes, that my readers can repeat with ease at home.

While the habit of fast food is embedded deep into American society, it is my hope that my readers will see the health and economic benefits of shedding their fast food addictions.

Your pockets will have more money at the end of the month and your body will thank you for giving it much needed healthy nutrients.

You know the FDA approved slogan, “Milk does a body good?” Well, they fail to explain that all animal agriculture has negative impacts on your health. This knowledge was confirmed with the China Cancer study. In recent years there has been a growing trend of licensed medical physicians promoting a diet without animal products. YouTube, Instagram and Facebook are now full of physicians who explain the benefits of eating raw fruits and veggies.

According to the FDA, your diet doesn’t affect acne. Here  is the link. They specifically state that you can eat all sorts of junk food and harmful oils because no scientific research has proven that nutrition and diet have any correlation to acne. Another government organization states: click here

Changing your eating habits is important to maintain a healthy body. While this statement is common sense, the mainstream media continues to push their narrative of animal agriculture. If you are curious of changing some of your eating habits, watch Cowspiracy, Earthlings and the movie Dominion. There are many others, but these three will give you an idea on how the global warming debate is skewed to fossil fuels, erroneously.

On Tuesdays, I teach about the effects of sugar on the brain, effects of sugar in your gut, effects of sugar on your hair, skin and nails, and the effects of sugar on your internal organs.
