Holistic Acne Treatments
What you may not know is that there are many acne-focused holistic treatments that can really make a difference when it comes to changing your skin from within whether it is hormonal acne, menopausal acne or body acne.
Change Your Diet
You may have heard the old saying “you are what you eat” and while this isn’t exactly fact, what you eat really can have an effect on your skin.
If you are serious about getting rid of your acne you may consider a change in your diet.
Subtract the Sugar
Foods with a higher glycemic index can really take a toll on your skin as they cause fluctuations in your blood sugar levels.
Removing sugary food and drinks from your diet are a great first step towards improving your acne symptoms.
Ditch the Dairy
Some theorize that dairy and its effect on your insulin and hormones can aid in the development of acne symptoms.
Talk to us about how dairy might be impacting your acne and see if removing it from your diet could help.
An anti-inflammatory rich diet is what we also recommend for acne prone skin and for general health.
Vegetables, fruits, and whole food are a great start towards healthier skin.
Additionally, omega-3 fat sources such as fish is always a welcomed addition to a healthy diet.
Supplements are another great addition to your diet to help your skin return to its acne free destination.
We carry many dietary supplements which can help you fight the symptoms of acne.
At Reston Dermatology we understand the holistic treatment of acne and our staff of professionals is here to help you discover the skin you’ve been hoping for.
