Acupuncture for Acne: A Solution?
Acne can be a constant battle for many people and the battle only seems to become worse if left unaddressed. Whether it be hormones, poor diet, lack of exercise, stress, or excessively oily skin clogging your pores; acne can be a real pain to treat effectively and efficiently. There are several root causes of acne which many dermatologists do not address in their evaluations of a patient. These same root causes can end up wreaking havoc on the skin and cause numerous, unintended side-effects to develop over time; particularly social side-effects. We’ll be discussing throughout this piece how acupuncture for acne can help you in so many ways and allow you to live the life you want to live: acne free.
Acne can cause a host of side-effects to develop over time and this can further cause social side-effects to develop and before you know it, you may be exhibiting the following:
- Anti-Social Behavior
- Painful Cysts
- Lack of Self-Confidence
and these are just a few of the side-effects which can manifest over time. It’s best to address these and all other side-effects associated with acne as soon as possible. When you address the problem at it’s root, it cannot survive any longer. Acne is similar to a weed in that sense. When you stop the root cause of that issue, you’ll no longer experience the painful weeds (pimples in this case) continue to pop up.
How Acupuncture Helps Your Acne
A big source of acne troubles can begin with an improper flow of nutrients from food to your skin. This can be exemplified by localized acne which may appear in certain areas on your face and/or body after eating certain foods which trigger a breakout. To address this common issue, acupuncture can break up the obstructions causing these localized acne-prone areas to continue to develop and clear the pathway for a proper diet to take its effect. There are also several areas throughout the body which can be stimulated by acupuncture to allow the body to begin healing itself internally, causing your skin to glow, shine, and be the best version of itself. This will restore your confidence and allow you to take control of your life from a social, health, and mental perspective. While acupuncture can help with many acne problem areas, your diet is the true source of improvement if optimized to the highest degree.
Why Diet Matters So Much for Your Skin?
The age-old phrase: “You are what you eat.” has never rang louder than when it comes to the health of your skin. It is so true. Everything you decide to eat makes its way to your skin and will certainly show if you’ve decided to binge on sugary, unhealthy food.
