Acne & Blackheads

Post by Archangel on Tue Jan 08, 2008 2:05 am

Acne Blend 1
Ingredients:
* 1 ounce light cold-pressed vegetable carrier oil (such as apricot kernel).
* 10 drops lavender essential oil
* 7 drops tea tree or New Zealand tea tree (Manuka) essential oil
* 2 drops bergamot essential oil*
* 1 drops geranium essential oil

Acne Blend 2
Ingredients:
* 1 ounce light cold-pressed vegetable carrier oil (such as apricot kernel).
* 12 drops lavender essential oil
* 7 drops tea tree or New Zealand tea tree (Manuka) essential oil
* 1 drops geranium essential oil
Directions: Pour the selected carrier oil into a very clean bottle (amber glass is best) and then add the essential oils and tightly close the bottle. Roll the bottle to gently mix the oils for a minute or two. Apply a small amount to the face, neck or back, but be certain to avoid the eyes, lips, nostrils and inside the ears. Gentle roll the bottle before each use to ensure the essential oils are properly mixed.
Special Precaution: *Avoid exposure to the sun for at least 12 hours after applying this oil since bergamot is a phototoxic oil. There is a special version of bergamot that you can get called "bergaptene free" that eliminates the phototoxic properties of the oil.

Topical & Oral Treatments for Acne

Topical treatments prescribed for acne are:
*A topical antibiotic lotion applied to the skin controls the propionobacterium acnes bacteria. The treatment is for atleast six months.

*Azelaic acid causes less skin soreness.

*Topical retinoid are the medicines based on the vitamin A, and they re rubbed into skin once or two times a day. They encourage the outer layer of skin to flake off, and also may cause irritation and skin peeling at the start of treatment.

Oral treatment acnes
*Oral antibiotics should be taken for three months to kill the bacteria infecting the skin. Antibiotics do not prevent the pores from blocking so treatment to prevent blackheads is prescribed at the same time. The success is not 100% because the strains of bacteria are often resistant to common antibiotics.

*Isotretinoin(roaccutane) is an oral retinoid which also exists in topical form. It is used in severe forms of acne where other treatments do not work. It works by drying oily secretions. It has a number of side effects which results in aches, dryness of skin and pain and headaches.

More On Blackheads
When oil collects and hardens in the pores of skin blackheads are formed. The pores are then closed with hardened sebum or oil. Since the pores are open, the tip of clogged grease is exposed to air and oxidizes which turns black. Their dark appearance is because of the densely packed skin cells, which leads to black color. Hence blackheads are formed in this way. Because of blackheads the pores get blocked and oil glands get affected resulting in pimples.

Tips to reduce blackheads:
-Food which causes constipation and others stomach disorders should be avoided.
-Avoid washing the face with soap for twice a day.
-Wash your face with plain water at least 4-5 times a day.
-A drug adapalene is wonderful in reducing the blackhead by stimulating of skin growth through modulation of cellular differentiation. Apply a thin film of adapalene gel once daily before going to bed.
-Ultraviolet rays encourage the skin peeling and help to clear blocked pores, therefore sunbathing is helpful,
-Hair should be kept away from the face as greasy hair and skin go together and can spread infection.

Home made remedies:
-Apply on trouble spots a warm honey and wash it after ten to fifteen minutes.
-Take one teaspoon of fresh coriander leaf juice with teaspoon of turmeric powder. Use this treatment at night and wash it off in the morning. Repeat this for one week.
-Boil some oatmeal in a little water. Cool it and add some lemon juice and mix it well. Apply this on affected area.
-Apply a paste of ground radish seeds with water on face to remove blackheads.
-Apply grated potatoes to treat blackheads.
-Apply undiluted lemon juice on the affected area. Repeat this two to three times a day.
-Make a lotion of lime juice, almond oil, and glycerine in equal proportion and apply it on face. This is an excellent treatment as it removes blackheads as well as spots on the face.
-Take two to three cups of boiled water and add two teaspoons of soda bicarbonate. Steam the towel in this and place the towel on face. Repeat this about five to six times a day.
-Take one teaspoon of lime juice mixed with 1 teaspoon of finely powdered cinnamon. Apply this paste as bed time and wash it off in the morning.
