Treat Rosacea Flare ups Naturally

Skin Sensitivity and Rosacea 

The most annoying part about flare-ups is that even when they are gone or look better you dread that they will find a way to come back. Rosacea  is a problem that affects nearly 20 million people that is far from just the blush it is mistaken as. It causes the skin to be overly sensitive and leave a red-tinted flush that remains for hours. It is a chronic type of inflammation that primarily shows on the face due to dilated capillaries that can remain red longer with every flare-up. For some, bumpy blemishes, itching, stinging and thickening of the skincare additional complications that are coupled with rosacea. While your parents genes play a strong influence, rosacea can be controlled by avoiding common triggers. 

 

What Your Skin Routine Shouldn't Include

One of the first things most people look at changing when they are suffering from a skin issue is adjusting their skin routine. Of course, this is an excellent start, but it is important to remember your skin is extremely sensitive and the last thing you want to do is be overzealous. Certain products, especially exfoliants and astringents, will be harsh on the skin and are best avoided when you notice they are turning your face red. Abstaining for harsh sulfates and opting for gentler or natural cleansers will make difference. Exfoliants may still be used, but remember, you want to seek those that are gentle and do not irritate the skin. The same applies for body cleansers and products like lotions and perfumes containing fragrance and alcohol.

Is it Your Makeup?

We wash our face to get rid of all the grime and dirt that accumulates throughout the day. Making sure all your makeup is thoroughly removed will help. Completely changing the brand of makeup you use can also help in the event it is the makeup itself that it causing the triggers if you are allergic to it. If you suspect you are allergic, it is best to keep track of your symptoms when you wear makeup, and what happens when you do not for at least two weeks. 

Don't Let Stress Get the Best of You

It is amazing -- in a not so good way -- what stress can do physically and mentally. When you are under a lot of stress your body releases chemicals as a way to help deal with the stress. These chemicals can affect your skin when there is too much, and a lack of it can to the same (when you are burned out). It is all about keeping a balance and refraining from stress.

Consider What You Are or Aren't Consuming

The body is a funny thing. What affects one person may not affect the other so it is hard to completely rely on the methods of what worked for one person. A sad, but excellent example is food. Flare ups can happen for some who consume something that activate the unwanted response, often because you are allergic to it. The opposite affect can happen as well with not eating enough of a nutrient, plummeting the immune system, which causing an immune response to occur. The only true way to determine your issue would be to test either or both out to see if food, or a lack of a certain food, is causing your problem.  Baltic Amber Necklace - Luxury Baltic Amber Necklace Arthritis Raw Polished 19 Inch Teen Adult

Heal Acne Naturally

 How can I Banish Pimples?

It is tough to say there is a single product out there that can completely get rid of pimples because what works for one person may not work for another. When it comes down to it, getting clearer skin has little to do with following the exact routine a person follows – it is all about experimenting. Still, there is a reason why there are certain skincare routines and treatment options that work for a handful of people. It may help reduce excess oil production or it could stop unwanted bacteria in its tracks.

If traditional acne products are not working as well as you would like them to, here are a few natural remedies you could try to treat acne on your own.

1 - Clay Masks

Clay masks (bentonite, kaolin, rhassoul) are beneficial for those looking to have great skin due to its powerful absorbing powers that gets red of toxins, bacteria, sebum, blackheads, whiteheads, and dead skin. While doing this, it also delivers oxygen and circulation to the face. As it gets rid of things we do not want on our face, clays are filled with minerals that are transferred to the skin for the body to use (many of which we are deficit in).

2 - Exfoliate

Exfoliating the skin, at least weekly, will help remove debris and dead skin on the surface of your skin. The key in using the right exfoliator is choosing the correct level of abrasion based on your skin type (sensitive, normal). For example, a gentle exfoliant like oatmeal is perfect for those with delicate skin, and a mineral based exfoliate such as sea salt will yield the best results for those with normal to combination skin. Honey, coconut oil, and kefir are excellent bases to blend with the exfoliant of your choice due to their healing and bacteria fighting properties.

3 – Garlic

Garlic is nature’s incredible antibacterial that can help stop pimples when it is eaten or applied on the affected area. If you decide to use it topically, slice a portion of the clove thinly to get to the juice before placing it on the problem area. Alternatively, you may blend the garlic clove. Be sure to keep it on your skin for at least 10-30 minutes.

4- Apple Cider Vinegar

You can drink it or apply it directly to the spot you wish, and be sure to dilute it with water to find the best solution that works for you. While it is a powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, apple cider is equally refreshing. Raw, unfiltered apple cider is suggested because it is filled with the most nutrients. It can be used as a spot treatment when you are breaking out or as an overall toner for the face after cleansing.

5- Cornstarch

Many would not think that cornstarch is not good for anything other than cooking, but it is a splendid natural remedy that is soothing and gentle. It is ideal for those struggling with irritation and redness. Cornstarch may be used as a face mask or added only to areas of concern. It should be left on for at least 15-20 minutes, but it is safe enough to leave on overnight to see an incredible change.

6 - Egg Whites

Adding egg whites to your skin routine is sure to make a difference in not just helping fight pimples, but improving the overall texture and appearance. This cheap facial mask will even help decrease oil, the appearance of pores, and draw out any impurities. In order to achieve the best results, you should leave it on your skin until it is completely dry (as evidenced by a tight face). Here’s another bonus: you will notice an amazing glow after you wash it off.

7 – Hazelwood

Acne is caused from things such as excess debris, a lack of nutrients or an internal imbalance which results in inflammation. Knowing how acne is started and fixing the problem is what will clear your skin long-term.

Eliminate Acne with One Product

Stubborn Acne

Acne is one of the most common condition that affect nearly 90% of people around the world, and everyone has probably experienced its unwanted arrival at least once in their lives. One of the most annoying things many could agree is Image result for acne girlthat the
condition is persistent and does not go away no matter what crazy methods we try. It helps to understand the root cause of your acne as it varies for many. De
pending on the cause, pimples can contribute to other illnesses and may be linked to:

  • Insulin resistance (Type II Diabetes)
  • PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Excess cortisol (as a result of high stress)

Taking a Closer Look at Commercial Products

It’s frightening to think that your staple skin product can also be one of the worst things for you because of the toxins and carcinogens it contains. The beauty products laid out on shelfs look attractive and say the “right” things because they are made to sell. Our skin is made to protect as much as it functions to absorb so the fragrances, preservatives, stabilizers and artificial colors are absorbed via our pores and can result in many long-term issues. Acne forms because of bacteria, clogged pores and, for many people, excess sebum production. There are two primary causes of excess oil production: excess hormones and toxicity in the body. The chances of increasing the risk of either cause is increased when using synthetic skincare products.

The Many Types of Acne

Types of Acne and Treatment

Which Form of Acne Do You Suffer From?

Not all people suffer from the same form of acne during the times it erupts. In a lot of cases, it is possible to have more than one type appear on the skin at the same time. This complex issue can  make how acne should be approached when you are treating the ailment. The rise of hormones or imbalance can happen to any age. It is also of no surprise that our diet and the environment may also play a role in the development of acne, putting genetics aside. The following below can help you understand what type, or types, of acne you may be struggling with. 

Whiteheads

Believe it or not, these unsightly white spots that appear on the skin are oil glands that occur due to excessive production of oil which causes the glands to clog. Due to this, the oil remains trapped between skin layers and is unable to reach surface causing  a plug to form. Although no true infection takes place, bacteria may be present as well. Whiteheads do not last nearly as long as blackheads, with an average cycle of seven days.

Blackheads

This type of acne is extremely common for people on and around the nose, chin and forehead. If a pore remains open, it is also known as a open comedo. Black lumps appear because of blocked follicles because of bacteria, dead skin cells, and other substances that react to oxygen when it reaches the surface. It may appear black, grey, or brown.

Papules (Inflammatory)

Papules appear as little bumps or reddish dots on the skin. The area is inflamed although it may or may not be sensitive to the touch. They typically do not contain any pus or display a visible pore. It is best to not pick the area when flare-ups are active as it may result in scarring.

Pustules (Inflammatory)

You may be dealing with pustules the acne is inflammed, hard, and filled with pus that appear as white spots with a yellowish center. Attempting to pick or pop it can also lead to scarring and dark spots. The primary difference from and papules is that pustules contain white blood cells. There are an accumulation of these cells as the immune system tries to combat bacteria that travelled inside a ruptured follicle. The area tends to inflamed and tender.

Nodules (Inflammatory)

This is one of the more severe forms of acne that is larger in size compared to pustules and papules. The inflamed bump is painful although it does not contain pus and is hard and stiff. People may notice them during the latter stages when they are breaking out. Nodules appear due to accumulated skin cells, sebum, and bacteria within the follicles that are formed deep within the skin for a long time. This deepness poses potential tissue injury. They can be dormant, and activate occasionally. Should they be popped or squeezed, deep in
fections are a high possibility as well as permanent scarring. 

Cysts ((Inflammatory)

Cysts are the deepest form of acne that are filled with pus, unlike nodules. It is tender to the touch, and do not come to a head. Since cysts are located so deep under the skin, they do not look like pimples. They simply look like big, swollen lumps that either clump together or occur individually. Scarring and hyperpigmentation are almost a definite aftermath when it heals.

An Option for Treating Many Types of Acne

Baltic Essentials Hazelwood can naturally treat many types of acne without having to worry about troublesome side effects. It is especially helpful for those who are dealing with inflammatory acne due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Hazelwood is also able to ease pain associated with some forms of pimples because it is also a natural anesthetic. The active form of Hazelwood, acetylsalicylic acid, is delivered directly into the bloodstream where it attacks the infected and inflamed area. This ability is most favorable for deep pimples in the skin where topical agents have little to no effect on the area. It can be used to treat active breakouts as well as prevent them from coming so you can look your best.

Getting Painful Pimples

For something so small, pimples can pack quite the punch on a person, whether it's  physically or emotionally. The pain is often intensified if we dare to pop it which may or may not be successful. Even the aftermath of popping a pimple is ugly as it invites scabs and scars. The reason pimples sometimes hurt is because the pore has become infected due to the collect of oil, dead skin cells and bacteria. This causes the body to fight back to kill the infection, wrapping the infected pore in a secluded bubble where inflammation takes place. The level of pain also depends how close the area is pushed against a nerve. It helps to implement a routine to reduce to eliminate the appearance of acne, but should the enemy decide to appear, there are a few things you can do to get rid of it quick while easing the pain.

Addressing the Pimple

There are a few methods you can try to banish the pimple(s). Try one or all to see what works best for your problem and skin type. Of course, keeping your skin clean and trying not to touch it should be remembered.

      3. The cooling sensation of peppermint and tea tree oil can also ease the pain as it heals the pimple by cleansing the area while drying it out. Remember to dilute the oil. It may be wash off or left over night.

The Four Stages of Acne

Living with Acne

Living with Pimples on Your Face

It's interesting how there are times we wake up one morning and notice an unwanted lump on our face. Pimples may appear few and far between or they may appear often and nest in many areas on our face. We often feel extremely unlucky when acne seems to make a home out of our face, never really leaving. Knowing which stage you often fall helps define its level of severity, what options there are to treat it, and how long it may take to get better. 

First Stage of Acne

The first stage is the mildest form of acne where people may notice that they have blackheads, whiteheads, and small pimples. The most common areas these signs occur is on the forehead or nose, and teens are most likely to suffer from this stage. Nonetheless, adults are just as likely to develop this form of acne, especially the black- or whiteheads on the nose. There are usually no active signs of inflammation although the person is breaking out and small blemishes can be seen.

Second Stage of Acne

The second stage is classified as moderate acne where comedones tend to appear on the skin. There is a high chance that pustules, papules, and nodules are present as well that most find are sensitive to the touch. The cheeks, chin, and forehead are primary locations where the breakouts occur. It is usually a local problem and does not typically spread to other areas of the body other than the face.

Third Stage of Acne

Like the first two stages, breakouts do not tend go beyond the face although there is a chance it will in some cases. During the third stage, inflammation is now in effect to a great degree and signs such as pain and redness are common. Papules, pustules, and nodules continue to be present. Problems such as scarring and hyperpigmentation are likely to take place after the pimples heal, but if addressed properly, can heal.

Fourth Stage of Acne

The last stage is, of course, the most severe with the skin not only having pustules, nodules, and papulues -- troublesome cysts are a problem too. Most people experience breakouts often and may suffer from those breakouts moving to other areas like the back, neck, chest, and buttocks. Scarring and hyperpigmentation is especially likely in this severe stage that can cause permanent damage to the skin. The appearance of cysts have the highest possibility of disfiguring the skin.

An Incredible Way to Control Acne

 No matter how prevalent of a thing acne is around the world, it's emergence is never welcome because it can make individuals overly cautious of themselves. Whether you are trying to control your acne and prevent them from coming or have an active breakout you want to heal, there are solutions available.

Detox Your Way to Clear Skin

Detox Your Way to Clear Skin

The Unwanted Face Fiend 

There isn’t a person in this world who enjoys the struggles of dealing with acne no matter what stage in life they may be. Its presence can be embarrassing for many as well as a recurring nightmare. Many people may feel frustrated when they make attempts to eat better and treat their skin right, but often stop because they see no results. Although it would be nice to have clear skin within a week (granted this rarity can happen for some), simplicity and consistency is key in getting the clear skin you want. Don’t let products that promise a "cure-all" for this trouble fool you. Detoxing your body from the inside and out is the true way to address acnRelated imagee and control your skin.

Detoxing the Skin 

Our skin is the largest organ of the body that serves to protect us. Visibly, we can only see the epidermis of our skin, but we should not forget the role the dermis layer has in the creation and persistence of acne. This deeper layer can take up to 6 weeks to surface, meaning the internal and external changes you make take the same amount of time to show signs of improvement. It may take months for those suffering from a skin condition to notice changes.

  Acne is the result of infected and overstimulated oil glands that are caused by unbalanced hormones as well as digestive, liver, and adrenal function. Eating foods or applying topical products that contribute to an abnormality an any of these can further overstimulate oil-producing glands. Eating foods that aid in the normal function of glands can both prevent and unclog pores. Although there is no such food you much absolutely stay away from, a few known congesting foods to keep in mind are dairy (filled with hormones), refined foods and sweets, Image result for pimple enemyand animal fat. Our adrenal glands work in response to stress causing excessive oil production and chemicals that can irritate the skin. Keeping stress in check is easier said than done, but reducing stress can make a remarkable difference for the skin. Our liver serves as an internal detoxifier and our gastrointestinal (GI) system is responsible for providing our body the nutrients it needs while eliminating everything else. Consuming foods that ultimately hinder these processes cause a buildup of toxins in the system and can also cause acne.

Detoxifying Foods for the Body

Overall, it is best to eat foods that is as organic as possible and to eat a diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables to aid in nutrient uptake, improved digestion, and elimination of toxins. Take a look at these amazing foods that help restart your system and fight acne from within:

  • Fish/fish oil

The Link Between Curing Pain and Inflammation

By Abby Logiste

Easing Inflammation and Pain

 What is Inflammation Anyway?

The body does a lot of things to protect itself from foreign invaders, and inflammation, which is normal under certain circumstances, is one of them. Inflammation is one of the many chains of reactions the body has when it is under attack that is started by chemicals relaying information to prepare for defense. Yes, inflammation is a needed reaction, but it can become problematic if you have a certain condition or injury that allows it to persist longer than it is welcome. Other times, the body has it completely wrong and winds up attacking itself (autoimmune disorders).

The start of Pain

Inflammation becomes a painful experience when your joints, organs, or blood vessels are inflamed. If it persists long enough, it may turn into conditions such as cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and cancer – all of which pose a risk for pain. Discomfort does not occur due to swelling alone; environmental, internal and external factors may also be involved. For example, if you lack sleep, smoke or are exposed to it, have excessive sun exposure, and eat an unhealthy diet.

 

Two Ways Ease Swelling and Pain Naturally

Treating pain is different for everyone because not everyone feels pain the same and not everyone has the same type of pain. Curing your discomfort is possible when you create and use a solution that works for you. When you go through pain that lasts for more than a couple of day or have an issue that you will have to deal with for the rest of your life, start to become costly or worse – not as effective because you have grown tolerance to it. There are natural alternatives available you can use aid in treating your pain instead of or in addition to medications you use. 

 

Baltic Essentials Amber

Amber is made from fossilized resin, and has been use for hundreds of decades as a way to heal injuries and treat pain. Amber may not appear to be special at first glance until you learn it has the ability to ease pain due to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Baltic Essentials Amber Necklaces are made from succinic acid, the most substance found in resin. The beads are capable of easing your pain for as long as you wear it as its beneficial ingredients enter the bloodstream after being warmed from the skin. Once swelling of the tissue, cells, or blood vessels are addressed, pain relief will follow soon after. Amber is the perfect option for those who are experiencing general aches and pain from the muscle or joints and inflammatory conditions like arthritis and carpel tunnel syndrome.

 

Baltic Essentials Hazelwood  

Hazelwood is made out of wood from a Hazelwood tree and works to heal the body by making it more alkaline as it works to balance our pH. Baltic Essentials Hazelwood Necklaces absorb excess acidity from the skin and helps eliminate the abundance of free radicals that lounges within and outside our body. Hazelwood is also high in antioxidants that are also sent to your bloodstream. The pH balancing powers and immense antioxidants that Hazelwood has helps treat GERD, ulcers, skin disorders like dermatitis, heartburn, gas, and constipation.
