The cause and duration
Acne is a skin inflammation that usually occurs among young people. Approximately 80% of young people in adolescence get acne. Problems with acne have both genders, but the problem of acne is more common and occurs in a more difficult clinical form among males.
Acne and pimples first appear in early adolescence, from 10 to 17 years among girls, and from 14 to 19 years among boys.
Typically last for 3-6 years, but in some cases can last much longer, even up to 12 years. Acne are manifested by inflamation on the face.
There are many possible causes of acne, however, the main causes among the majority of people are: insufficient consumption of water, poor nutrition, stress, hormonal disorders and improper skin care.
The cause of acne can be certain medications. These are usually the drugs that contain ingredients such as bromide, lithium, corticosteroids, etc. that have been proved to cause acne.
What can be done?
For perfectly healthy skin and whole organism, we need to remove as many possible causes of imbalance and thus restore unity and harmony of our body. Removing these five most common causes of imbalance gives the most extraordinary results. You will achieve perfect health and immaculate appearance of their skin.
Human body is made up of 75% water so we can not stress enough how important it is to bring into the organism a sufficient amount of clean water. Water is the source of life. It builds, regulates, conveys, cleanses and helps nourish every part of our body. The quality of water you drink can radically affect your health but also the health of your skin. That is why it is vital to drink only the purest water.
When asked what is considered to be a clean water we can give more answers, so we recommend you a book by Dr. Norman W. Walker “Water and your health“.
An old proverb says: you are what you eat. Therefore, we must always bear in mind that everything we eat builds our body. In other words, if we want to build a strong and healthy building, we must have all the necessary materials for the construction. Taking lots of fruits and vegetables is the main rule of a healthy diet because the body provides valuable nutrients (enzymes, vitamins, minerals) that are necessary for normal functioning of the body, including the skin. It is important to emphasize that this primarily refers to raw fruits and vegetables because cooking destroys virtually all enzymes and vitamins.
Should be reduced and brought under control all fat intake and milk products in the organism because they can adversely affect the health of the skin.
Purchasing a quality juicer (which uses cold press) would be an excellent investment for your health because you would thus be able to consume a lot more valuable substances from fruits and vegetables. It is much easier to drink for example. 2 ounces of carrot juice than eat a kilo of carrots (although it is the same amount). In addition, the juices do not contain so many calories, so you can drink it in large quantities.
3. Reduce stress
Stress can trigger the body to produce certain hormones and increase the level of harmful toxins in the body that can cause acne. Meditation, yoga, exercise or simple walk in the nature can significantly reduce the level of stress that we feel every day. It would be good if some of these methods could be introduced in the daily routine in order to reduce the impact of stressful events on our body.
Use the power of nature and sage
The benefits of sage
Salvia officinalis or the Sage is one of the most healing plants on Earth.
It contains over 60 different compounds and substances which act synergistically in reducing a number of problems. One feature of these compounds is a powerful antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory activity. Also, sage has a hormonal effect and regulates the estrogen-like properties that are used in the regulation of female hormonal disorders. Throughout its entire history was a highly praised and considered to be a holy plant which is not surprising. If we look at a wide spectrum of its activity it is fully justified. Since it can successfully replace antibiotics, it is no wonder that it had been given such importance because, as we know, the antibiotic formula was discovered only recent.
Sage hydrosol is a completely natural product that helps fight acne and pimples, for which is used fresh sage leaves. This powerful liquid has a specific taste, smell, chemical composition and strong therapeutic properties. Hydrosol not only treats the symptoms but also reduces the likelihood of new ones, or may remove the very cause of the problem if it was caused by hormones or as a result of insufficient or incorrect skincare.
4. Balancing the hormones
Hormonal changes are one of the common causes of acne. The increase in androgen level causes increased secretion of sebum, resulting in clogged pores that are ideal territory for the growth of bacteria which leads to inflammation and the formation of acne.
Sage has extremely good effect on the female hormonal disorders, therefore balances hormones, regulates the menstrual cycle and helps with polycystic ovaries. It can be taken as a tea (oral use) or in the form of hydrosol (oral and dermal use)
How to use hydrosol for acne and ulcers problems?
Oral use: Mix one teaspoon of hydrosol with 1 dl of water and drink it (do this twice a day). If necessary use one soup spoon instead of teaspoon.
Dermal use: more under
5. Skin care and protection
If you want to clean your skin of acne, you must first deal with infections that occur beneath its surface.
Due to its water base sage hydrosol penetrates deep into the skin and acts strongly anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral. The healing properties of sage, which are located in hydrosol in the form of solutes and small molecules of essential oils have a powerful effect on inflammation and soothe and cool down the skin. Also, sage hydrosol encourages acceleration of skin regeneration ie. the sores heal faster thereby reducing the possibility of scarring and a protective layer is formed which then protects the skin from harmful environmental effects.
In addition, the skin has a natural defense mechanism to defend from microbes and other harmful environmental influences. This mechanism is reflected in the pH factor, or the acidity or alkalinity of the skin. In fact, the skin is protected from microorganisms by its sour film and continuous peeling of surface layers. Bacteria do not favor sour, unstable (peeling) surface.
Common mistakes in acne treatment
A common mistake in treating acne is that you use a variety of facial cleansers that also remove the natural protection of the skin and thereby make skin more vulnerable. Soaps usually have a pH of about 9 or 10 which removes the acidic film of the skin and leaves it very vulnerable. For comparison, 0 pH is a measure of extremely sour, and 14 pH for extreme alkaline while the value 7 pH-neutral – which is the value water has.
Our skin should have a natural pH value of 5, which is slightly acidic, but frequent washing and use of a variety of products that do not have appropriate pH leads to imbalance and thus leave our skin unprotected. For this reason it is extremely important, after the use of such products or make-up removers, to restore the natural pH of the skin with hydrolat that also disinfects and moisturizes. Its pH value is slightly more acidic than normal acidity of the skin which increases the resistance of the skin on the surface, creating an even stronger protective layer.
The results will soon be visible and the skin will thank you with smoothness and softness, which will be felt after the first day of using this product.
