Homeopathy: Holistic Treatment to Your Acne-Free Days
Kashish, a 19-year college going girl, had tried all the anti-acne products available in the market. She spent a lot of time and money, only to see more break-outs on her skin! Then came what Kashish calls the ‘Break-free moment’ when she tried homeopathy treatment for acne. Her two-year-long battle with pimples came to an end with this holistic treatment.
Hopefully, your breakouts are not as bad as hers! Even minor acne, however, can be a serious problem. While no one has ever died of pimples, acne can have such a big impact on self-esteem and confidence that one must consider medical treatment essential. Unfortunately, 80% to 90% of teenagers will have to cope with their share of acne. But they are not the only ones. People in their 30s and even 40s can still experience breakouts. If left untreated, it can leave acne scars on the skin.
So, what can you do to get acne-free days?
Today, there are many ways to treat acne (pimples), including salon and spa treatments, popular dadi-maa ke nuskhe, and using over-the-counter products that contain salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. However, it is important to note that these preventive or treatment options can only subside your acne problem and not treat it from the root. OTC applications can even interfere with your body’s natural healing patterns, thereby, increasing your chances of acne recurrence.
Therefore, if you are looking for a safe, holistic, and permanent solution for acne, you can seek homeopathy treatment.
Homeopathy helps you get rid of acne from the root
Homeopathic medicines for acne work naturally by healing from within. The focus lies on permanent cure and not just temporary relief. Homeopathy is fast growing as a popular choice of healing among all age groups.
It works by boosting your immune system. We often fall prey to diseases due to a weakened immune system. Homeopathy helps overcome any deficits in our immunity for a holistic approach to healing where we can fight diseases from within. For instance, acne may be caused by stress, hormonal imbalance, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) or thyroid problems. Homeopathy helps heal this ‘root cause’ for a holistic approach that guarantees no relapse.
The homeopathic treatment for acne also looks at the individuality of the person. It examines not just the symptoms, but also the personality and temperament of the individual, without limiting itself to treating the outward symptoms.
The best part about the medication is that it has no side-effects, and it can be safely taken for a long period of time.
In severe cases of acne, homeopathy can help to reduce the severity of eruptions and control scarring as much as possible. Nevertheless, with continued and regular medication, the condition is gradually controlled before it finally disappears.
Useful tips to prevent acne
- Do not squeeze acne ever. It can lead to infection and scarring
- Drink plenty water and keep your skin well hydrated
- Have plenty of Vitamin-C and Vitamin-A rich foods. They are known to make skin lighter and reduce scars. So consume berries, oranges, pineapples, carrots, and papaya
- Use an anti-acne face wash or oil-control face wash in case your skin is very oily
- Do not use chemical-based soaps that dry the skin. Instead, use an aqueous herbal soap. After washing, pat, do not rub
- Exercise regularly as it ups the level of endorphins or feel-good chemicals in the body providing a relaxed and confident feeling
- Manage stress with meditation, yoga, music, sharing, and pursuing a hobby
Consult and follow-up with your homeopathic doctor on a regular basis and/or when you notice a change in your acne pattern, symptom or intensity including reduction of your acne spots.
