Tips for Acne Sufferers
Bed linen: Change pillowcases every 2 days. Sleep on one side and turn for the next night then change the slip.
Mobile phones: Do the pimples come up where you hold the phone? If so keep phone clean and swap sides.
Hair products: Don't use gels and other hair products on your fringe. Often they clog pores on the forehead.
- Vitamin A or betacarotene or Cod Liver oil fortified with Vitamins A and D (check with health professionals as Vitamin A can cause defects on unborn babies)
- Essential Fatty Acids or Omegas
- Vitamin C
These can all help a smoother, healthier complexion and help strengthen the immune system.
Regular exfoliation is important in control of congested skin, pimples and acne. A buildup of dead skin cells mixed with sebum is a recipe for pimples.
