Hello User,

As 14 years is a teenage and important milestone in a person's life with our bones growing and so is our overall development happening, this is the time when there are hormonal changes happening at the same time if we feed our body to high-fat diet and indulge in things like cheese, paneer, bread etc which degrades our skin quality. 

It is time to make changes in the diet and adapt an overall naturalistic lifestyle. A holistic measure is the only way you can treat this thing completely.

Eat:

The first thing in the morning is to start your day with something light in nature and easy to digest is what your breakfast should be because they are the kind of nutrients that get absorbed easily. Even the early morning ritual should include consumption of two-three glasses of warm water will help in flushing out all the toxins. The ideal diet would be to depend on fruits and raw vegetable intake and refrain from something which is oil-based. Have fruit salad in the afternoon time and vegetable salad as evening snack this will be light on your stomach.

A diet rich in Vitamin C will help in dealing with skin problem by reducing all the acne. Sources like lemons, oranges, mosumbi will help in dealing with acne.

Face packs which you can use to improve your acne:

1. Massage the acne-prone area with one tablespoon aloe vera gel and one tablespoon coconut oil.

2. One tablespoon of flaxseeds blend with half beetroot will make sure to reduce acne scars.

3. Wash your face in the morning with neem powder and one teaspoon of healthy for an antibacterial reaction.

​​Exercise:

  • Pranayam helps in detoxifying the body, practising it early morning in an area which has good sunlight will help in improving blood circulation.
  • Suryanamaskar daily 12 sets will help in increasing the blood circulation of your body.
  • A brisk walk in early morning sun from 30-45 minutes, helps in treating your body to its level best. Sun is a great source of Vitamin D that is why walking in the Sun and connecting with the sun also help in activating our cells and rejuvenate us for the whole day.

Meditation:

In any kind of disease, stress comes complementary to it, but with our assurance and positive attitude, we can treat anything. The best thing to start with is breathing mindfully before sleep with the help of music to stay positive. Use a 15-minute relaxation technique before sleep, by hearing a piece of soothing music and deep breathing will help in relaxing your mind.

A positive attitude will help you to deal with everything in life.

Sleep:

Sleeping for at least 7-8 hours is really helpful in dealing with any problem, sleep is our body's natural response and helps the body to heal. Sleep relaxes the muscles and strengthens our body. During sleep, our body goes into a repair mechanism where it heals thy self.

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you

Thank you

Dear Rohan,

Acne is a common skin problem faced by boys and girls, especially during the teenage years. As per Nature Cure, our body is designed to stay in a state of health and diseases/symptoms/discomfort are often an attempt to restore any imbalance inside the body. Imbalance is caused because of toxins - which are an output of metabolism and are also added due to unnatural lifestyle choices. Nature has equipped us with the measures of eliminating the toxins on a regular basis - through breathing, stool, urine, sweat, mucus depositions in nose, eyes and genitals etc. Acne is also one such mechanism to get rid of toxins. At this stage, we need to support the body to get rid of toxins instead of suppressing symptoms by restoring to quick-fixes like medicines etc.

Adopt a natural lifestyle to deal with your acne problem naturally. You can explore our Nature-Nurtures Program that helps you in making the transition, step by step. Our Natural Health Coach will look into your daily routine in a comprehensive way and give you an action plan. She / he will guide you on diet, sleep, exercise, stress to correct your existing routine & make it in line with Natural Laws.

All the local applications are always a temporary solution to beat acne.

Skin is a reflection of the body’s health inside. Health is always inside out and not outside in.

You have acne now and that's due to your lifestyle and adding any external new products to the mix won’t help in isolation. You need to understand the foods that are majorly causing this and remove it. It’s as simple as that and feed on foods that are designed for humans.

Eliminations happen via the skin too. Since a child whatever toxins such as pollution, chemicals on the skin, dairy, meat, eggs fish, all the harsh chemicals that would have been used in the household, toxic smells, medicines etcetera would have got collected in your liver and over a period of time when it maxes out, and it finds that the other excretory organs are also clogged, it tries to eliminate that from the skin. The more severe your acne the more accumulation of toxins in your skin and so in the body.

Hormonal imbalances also lead to acne. This is the age when the body starts making hormones to help you grow into an adult. Apocrine sweat gland opens their duct onto the skin surface only during puberty under the stimulation of sex hormones which are produced. These ducts open to the hair follicles producing a protein-rich sweat that can also develop an odour when exposed to bacteria. Hence, at the onset of puberty, the skin becomes oily and produces sweat. Coincidentally, skin starts releasing toxins in the form of acne from the skin when the body starts producing the male hormone testosterone in both sexes. So the body will anyways do this for every single person, but some having acne vs some not depends on how much toxins you are accumulating to send out.

Excess toxins in the lymphatic system, with not so efficient kidneys, will accumulate toxins. When the body sees pores opening on the skin, it tries to grab the opportunity to release toxins which also has hair growing from it.

The solution is to start focusing on cleaning your body. Keep washing your face with plain water without any scrubbing. Pat it dry after the cleansing. For internal cleansing, a long term lifestyle change is necessary. Lead a healthy whole food plant-based diet with a focus on raw till dinner and your skin will be ok over time. 50% of fruits and greens, 30% of vegetables, 20% of cooked food is all that is necessary to clean your body. Avoid all forms of fats even nuts and seeds for this condition to heal. Over time you can include coconuts. Quit dairy, meat, fish, eggs, sugar, all forms of oils including any fancy cold-pressed oils, refined oils having food outside often (because of all the refined and processed food and + the chemicals to make it tastier), wheat and other grains contain gluten such as barley and oats. Avoid maida and other forms of foods that contain gluten.

Include a lot of fruit and vegetable juices such as cucumber ash gourd which comes to at least 3-4 liters per day.

Next, avoid all cosmetics and chemical application on the skin. Use natural products such as my recipes here below. Put things on your skin that you can put into your mouth too. As you continue to improve on the raw intake in your life and quit all forms of suppressive chemicals that are not critical, the skin will definitely pop out and overtime release all the toxins that are inside the body. You will have to allow it to happen for your acne to be completely healed in the future. Pus is nothing but all the toxins that are coming out.

Any form of suppression does two purposes, one is to bring an improvement in your condition and the second is to cause another problem which is toxin accumulation. Since chemicals are not food, the body will try to eliminate it in the form that it knows best in your body which is acne. Clean that backed-lymph system and your entire body will be fine including your face. When your kidneys and other major organs clear up, your skin will too

कारण - मुहांसे मूल रूप से तेल ग्रंथियों (oil glands) से संबंधित एक विकार है। ये तेल ग्रंथियां त्वचा के नीचे मौजूद हैं।

स्किन के रोम छिद्र या पोर्स अंदर से तेल ग्रंथी वाली कोशिकाओं (सेल्स) से जुड़े हुए होते हैं जिनके कारण सीबम ऑयल स्किन के रोम छिद्र में उत्पन्न होता है। सीबम खराब सेल्स को रोम छिद्र से बाहर लाने मे मदद करता है और नये सेल्स बनाता रहता है। परंतु हार्मोन असंतुलन के कारण जब ज़्यादा सीबम तेल बनने लगता है, तब यह तेल इन रोम छिद्रों को बंद कर देता है जिसके कारण मुहांसे या दाने होते हैं। सीबम में बैक्टीरिया का विकास भी रोम छिद्रों को बंद कर मुहांसे को जन्म देता है।

समाधान - समाधान- 1. लंबा गहरा सांस अंदर ले रुके थोड़ी देर 10 गिनने तक फिर सांस को खाली करें खाली करने के बाद 10 गिनने तक रुके फिर लंबा गहरा सांस अंदर खींचें यह प्रक्रिया एक चक्र हुआ ऐसा 10 चक्र करें एक बार में और ऐसा दिन में तीन से चार बार करें बस इस बात का ध्यान रखें कि जब आप यह प्रक्रिया कर रहे हो तो आपकी रीढ़ की हड्डी सीधी होनी चाहिए।

हफ़्ते में एक दिन उपवास करें। शाम तक केवल पानी लें, प्यास लगे तो ही पीएँ। शाम 5 बजे नारियल पानी और रात 8 बजे सलाद लें।

7. उपवास के अगले दिन किसी प्राकृतिक चिकित्सक के देख रेख में टोना लें। जिससे आँत की प्रदाह को शांत किया जा सके। एनिमा किट मँगा लें। यह किट ऑनलाइन मिल जाएगा। इससे 200ml पानी गुदाद्वार से अंदर डालें और प्रेशर आने पर मल त्याग करें। ऐसा दिन में दो बार करना है अगले 21 दिनों के लिए। ये करना है ताकि शरीर में मोजुद विषाणु निष्कासित हो जाये। इसके बाद हफ़्ते में केवल एक बार लेना है उपवास के अगले दिन। टोना का फ़ायदा तभी होगा जब आहार शुद्धि करेंगे।
