Your skin is a delicate barrier between the inside and outside of your body. It is also the body’s largest organ of elimination so keeping your facial skin clean has to be done sensibly and thoroughly with consideration given to the skin's own needs. Be very selective in what you use to clean and treat your skin. Read and research labels for certain chemical ingredients. These are harsh on skin that is already distressed, making the acne worse.Most of the chemicals going into our toiletries are no different from the harsh, toxic chemicals used in industry. For example, propylene glycol is a wetting agent and solvent used in make-up, hair care products, deodorants and aftershave. It’s also the main ingredient in antifreeze and brake fluid. Similarly, polyethylene glycol, a related agent found in most skin cleansers, is a caustic used to dissolve grease the same substance you find in oven cleaners. Isopropyl, an alcohol used in hair-color rinses, hand lotions and fragrances, is also a solvent found in shellac. Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), used in toothpastes, shampoos and just about every personal cleansing solution, is a harsh detergent commonly used as an engine degreaser. Be very selective in what you use to clean and treat your skin. Too many of the toiletries and cosmetics we use these days are simply carcinogenic cocktails of hazardous waste.There’s not enough room in a short article to go too deeply into this subject, but just remember to check the label. The best soaps available contain pure glycerin, such as Castile soap in either liquid or solid block form. Do not wash your skin excessively. The skin forms a protective oil covering as a surface barrier against airborne attacks or from being touched by dirt. Typically, your hands are laden with germs which get easily transferred to the face by touch.Research until you find a highly recommended face cream. A good chemical-free cream will treat your skin with respect and understanding and, for a number of people, may be enough to end the acne. However, most acne sufferers will have to use additional strategies as well. Since acne is often more than just a skin problem, originating within your body and pushing toxic matter out through your skin, you need to deal with it at source as well as at surface level.Depending on the severity of your condition select your course of action from the following:If your acne is moderate, being active in episodes rather than constant, just a few steps of a good skin care program and a good cream should be adequate.For a more severe case, you should follow a complete holistic clean skin program as acne is a complex holistic condition. It is connected not only with your body but also with your mind and emotions. It is an expression of what is happening inside your internal organs and deep inside your cells. Acne is the result of your body being unable to cope with quantities of this toxic matter so it is transferred for elimination to your skin via the blood stream. This is a survival mechanism to protect your vital organs from being poisoned.Since what goes on your skin is absorbed and finds its way into your body's systems and organs it is, in a way, as though you were eating it. And just like you read labels on food before buying it, you should read labels on all your skin application products.Some commonly used ingredients distress your skin and, by blocking your pores, this may be the cause of your acne. Some of the worst offenders have been briefly discussed above.Check if these chemicals are in your cosmetics, if so throw them out. Read all labels to do with skin care. You will find these ingredients in many commercial skin preparations including sunscreens and certain brands of soap. Since skin is permeable, whatever is applied to it will have to be dealt with by the liver and the liver's easiest route to get rid of unwanted matter is through the skin.Every second or third day, use a face steamer for a few minutes and then gently pat your skin with a heated clean face towel. This brings circulation to the face and helps to open pores. At a slightly deeper level it helps to move the toxic matter inside the pimple to the surface. If a pimple is not yet ripe, leave it for next time. A ripe pimple will open to a light scrub. Gentle encouragement rather than force works best. Picking at open skin can quickly cause infection that will leave a scar.Avoid oil-based make up as it is heavy and clogs up your pores. Rather use water based make-up, it is kinder to your face; use it lightly.Be aware of skin contact. That fresh outcrop of spots may be caused by resting your chin or cheek on your hand: comfortable at the time but really not worth it. Change pillow covers frequently. After laundering the pillow covers either dry them in the sun or press them with a very hot iron. Sleeping on your back is a good habit to get into, rather than have contact between your face and the pillow.Following these basic guidelines for clean facial skin will speed up your recovery from acne.
