The natural treatment for acne I'm about to reveal to you can help you treat and minimize acne breakouts by controlling the production of excess androgens.
Controlling the production of excess androgens is important to preventing and treating acne because cause excess androgens cause excess sebum oil to clog your hair follicle. This can worsen your acne condition by causing pimples to swell bigger and spreading the infection.
So what will you need for this natural treatment?
Well you only need to consume about three ingredients that can prevent excess androgens. More specifically, three essential fatty acids.
Here they are:
- Omega – 3
- Omega – 6
- Omega – 9
Getting enough of these three essential fatty acids are crucial to clear skin because they will:
- Reduce sebum production
- Reduce the size of sebaceous glands
- Speed up the healing process of acne
- Improve skin health
- And prevent inflammations
Where can these three essential fatty acids be found?
Omega-3 can be found in the following foods:
- Wheat germs
- Pumpkin seeds (also contains omega-6)
- Avocados (also contains omega-9)
- Albacore tuna
- Sesame seeds
Omega-6 And Omega-9 can be found in these foods:
- Evening primrose oil
- Olive oil
- Flaxseeds or flaxseed oil
- Canola oils
- Sunflower oils
And of course, I'm not saying you have to consume these oils by itself. Mix it in with other foods such as salad, soup, cereal, etc.
Just one or two tablespoon a day of one of these oils will provide you with enough of the essential fatty acids.
If you want a food source that contains all omega-3, 6, and 9 then consider consuming nuts such as:
- Macadamia nuts
- Pistachios nuts
And if you do not want to eat any of these foods then there's always the supplement route. And to make it even easier, just find a supplement that contains all three essential fatty acids.
