is a problem everyone faces at some point in their lives. It occurs
most often during the teenage years though, because there are major
hormonal changes happening within the body during puberty. This common
fact, though, is a key insight to the causes of adult and ongoing
chronic acne problems.
people mistakenly believe that things such as chocolate will cause
acne. And yes some people will break out more when they've eaten too
much chocolate, but for most this is not the case. The real culprit
is what the chocolate usually indicates about a person's lifestyle
eats too much chocolate, then it's very likely they have poor nutritional
habits in general. And poor nutrition is one of the major contributing
factors to acne problems too. There are in fact, three primary causes
for acne flare ups and ongoing acne problems throughout an adult's
Hormones. As mentioned already, the wide fluctuation of hormonal
changes and imbalances in teenagers tends to the primary cause of
acne during those years. Hormonal problems can also cause acne related
problems in adults too though. General hormone imbalances is often
the problem, and this can be caused by a variety of lifestyle or
environmental factors, as well as certain medications too.
Nutrition. Nutritional deficiencies is another common cause
of acne problems, and this is where the myth about eating chocolate
comes into play. Most people who eat a lot of chocolate also tend
to eat a lot of junk food in general, while eating little to no
people who have poor eating habits also don't get enough fiber in
their diet, because they eat little to no fruits or vegetables each
day, and this lack of dietary fiber contributes to the next issue...
Toxic waste. When we don't get enough fiber into our diets
each day, the solid waste material in our body starts to stagnate
within the colon. As the material sits around unable to move through
and out, it slowly starts leaking the toxins and poisons it contains
back into the rest of the body through the colon walls. And when
this happens, the body responds by trying to get rid of the toxins
another way: Through the skin.
simple changes to our lifestyles though, such as drinking more water
each day and eating more fiber, can help cleanse our body of the solid
waste material that has been stagnating inside us. And once we've
cleansed that material, the other organs in our bodies are able to
start moving the backlogged toxins out too. And all of this combined
works to help clear up even the worst acne skin problems.
