There are 4 major factors that contribute to the formation of blemishes:
1. Hormonal activity (diet has no effect on this)
2. Overproduction of oil from the oil glands
3. Irregular or excessive shedding of dead cells (too much exfoliating)
4. Build up of bacteria in the pore.
Each hair follicle grows along with an oil gland that secretes sebum (oily wax) that melts on the skin’s surface to naturally moisturize the skin. When too much oil is produced (usually caused by hormonal activity) it becomes mixed with dead skin cells, hair debris and bacteria eventually causing an infected backup to clog the pore and form a blemish.
To clear up blemishes:
1. Disinfect the skin (the blemishes only)
2. Reduce oil production
3. GENTLY exfoliate the skin for better cell regeneration
After cleansing the affected skin (use mild cleanser only), disinfect the blemish with either benzol peroxide, tea tree oil or hydrogen peroxide (the least inexpensive and just as effective). Apply a cream with exfoliating properties to slough off dead skin cells. Beta Hydroxy Acids work best on oily skin. Emu oil helps emulsify the sebum (does not clog pores) so the sloughing of dead skin cells is uninterrupted. It also helps to reduce the swelling and inflammation caused by pimples and speeds healing of existing pimples. Emu oil works well in combination with other products to enhance their effectiveness.
To treat very serious acne, Accutane (a prescription drug made from Vitamin A) is recommended. It slows oil production in the oil glands and shrinks them down to the size of a baby’s, permanently. Treatments last 16 weeks and causes all membranes to dry. Emu oil is excellent for rehydrating the skin during Accutane treatments. Use inside the nose and mouth to help reduce nose bleeds and canker sores. The lip balm is good for dry chapped lips and the addition of a little bit of emu oil to your shampoo will also help hydrate dry hair. Pregnant women should not use Accutane as it causes serious birth defects.
