When it comes to sebum control, most consumers tend to over-react. They end up reaching for the big guns of acne treatment as their first resort. Forget about using the typical over the counter topical solution containing some sort of acid or peroxide. They quickly go past these common solutions and they opt for the most extreme solution-accutane or blue light laser therapy. Seriously. Talk about using a Ferrari as a paper weight.
The main reason too many people simply jump the gun at the first sight of zits is they think that it is the end of the world. This is easy to understand because, hey, let’s face it-zits do have an inconvenient habit of popping up at the worst time.
Maybe you are preparing for the prom. Maybe you have an all-important presentation to make. Maybe you are going to a college admissions interview. Regardless, the last thing you want to do is to show up looking like a person with a pizza for a face.
The good news is that sebum control-the most essential part-of acne formation, can actually be controlled in an all-natural way that won’t take too much time, effort, and money. By simply skipping out one key item from your daily meals and drinks you increase your chances of hanging on to that relatively smooth skin you have. No joke.
What do you need to skip? Sugar. Not fat, mind you. Not eggs or any other well-worn nutritional bogeyman we’ve been told since forever to avoid. Sugar. That sticky, sweet white stuff, it turns out, it is actually murder on your skin. By loading up your skin cells with water, carbs set your skin up for bad sebum control, premature aging, wrinkling, and host of other bad skin health issues. Swear off the soda and sweet foods today and be well on your way to more optimal sebum control.
