Acne is a problem that has its roots in your general health, beginning with your body’s processing of toxins. You’ll have to defeat acne from within.
If your acne is fairly mild, you may be able to defeat it with a good skin cream. In this case, you’ll only have to follow the first one or two steps of this 12 step process. This will get you past the outbreaks that can plague you.
However, if you have severe acne, then you’ll probably need to follow all 12 steps of this process. This is because acne can be caused by problems with your overall health, mental state, and toxicity.
If you have excessive toxins in your body, your body won’t be able to eliminate all of them. Your kidney and liver can be overwhelmed. When this happens, the toxins enter your bloodstream and exit your body through your skin. The skin is actually considered the biggest organ in your body. This survival tactic allows your body to protect internal organs, tissues, blood, and the very cells of your body from damaging toxins.
The 12 steps to defeating acne are: 1) Keep your face clean; 2) use Scotty’s face cream; 3) relieve your constipation with the three day liquid fast; 4) make changes to your diet; 5) get plenty of fresh air, water, and sunshine; 6) take vitamins; 7) take minerals; 8) take supplements; 9) drink an herbal mixture; 10) take special detoxifying drinks and supplements; 11) brush your skin; 12) change your attitude.
Step one of the 12 step process is to keep your face clean. Let’s start with the first thing that can cause acne – makeup.
Many brands of makeup irritate your skin, causing acne. This is because the chemicals in the makeup can clog pores. The biggest culprits for causing acne are mineral oil, parabens, lanolin, and propylene glycol. If you’ll look at the ingredients on your makeup, you’ll probably see at least one of these ingredients. If so, they can cause inflammation in your pores, creating acne. These chemicals are not used just in makeup, either. You’ll find them in soap, lotion, and sunscreen. The solution is to find a water based makeup that doesn’t contain these chemicals. Use the makeup sparingly, and when you wash your face, make sure the soaps don’t contain these chemicals, either.
When you wash your face, be gentle and don’t wash it more than twice a day. When you do, it will dry your face out, causing stress on the pores and making them inflamed. It also strips it of protective oils which it needs to remain healthy. Use only Castile hand soap, or pure glycerin soap to wash your face.
Don’t touch your face. You’ll spread germs with your hands. Not only will you spread germs already on your face, you’ll add to them with germs on your hands. So, be careful not to rest your chin in your hands. Some people sit with their cheek resting on their hands. This will spread germs and acne, too.
Use a hot towel on your face about twice a week. This will open the pores and increase circulation. It also makes it easier to clean your skin. Don’t scrub a pimple very hard, but just enough to pop it open when it’s ready. Then, gently wash off the fluid. Remember not to pick at pimples, because you’ll cause inflammation and spread germs , creating sores and scars.
Remember, anything you put on your skin will absorb into your bloodstream. The chemicals in soap, lotion, and creams may add to the toxicity of your system, creating even more problems with acne.
