Naturopathic acne treatment

By definition, naturopathic acne treatment is the natural way of controlling acne. Most dermatologists recommends topical or oral medication as their first choice of acne treatment. When you are using those over-the-counter and prescription medication, mostly they attack acne causing bacteria from the top layers of skins.

Unlike conventional acne treatment methods, naturopathic treatment targeted to the root causes of acne. They believe that treating the causes through life style and diet can prevent further breakouts and flare-up of acne.

How does naturopathic acne treatment works?

Treatments of acne using naturopathic methods fall into numerous group:

  • Herbs and foods that nourish skin
  • Get rid of toxins from the blood
  • Avoid the use of some products that leads to acne.

Naturopaths treat their patients by telling them to avoid gluten from their diet, reducing or avoiding sugar and fats from their diet to see if those foods cause acne or not. But this technique is not proven to avoid acne in all individuals.
