December 2002 - News from SulfurSoap.com
:D Hi,

Here it is December, and time for another newsletter !

That is great news, because we love our customers and fans !

OK, like so many things in life, let's make our work fun and it's half done, ... and on we go  with this month's newsletter.

This month's topic is ... Holistic skin care especially for acne sufferers.

Have you read Jennifer Thoden's "How to Heal your Adult Acne Naturally - A step-by-step guide to clear skin" ? Well, we are referencing her work and her contribution on www.healing.about.com and her simple tips to heal acne naturally.

To summarize her key points, Jennifer says by following these tips a difference can be noticed in about four weeks to help heal acne. They are " ...

  • Apply a honey mask to your face once or twice a week
    • Honey has antibacterial properties so it is great for disinfecting and healing minor blemishes. It is also gentle on sensitive skin.
  • Wash twice a day with acne soap
    • You should wash your face twice a day with a sulfur based soap designed for acne. Once when you first wake up in the morning and then, right before you go to bed at night. Be extremely gentle to your skin when washing - do not scrub or use any sort of rough cloth. Overwashing your skin will actually stimulate your sebaceous glands to produce more sebum, thus increasing your acne.
  • Keep your hair off your face
    • If you have long hair or bangs, pull your hair off your face. Your hair contains oils as well, and will contribute to your breakouts. Youíll also want to wash your hair everyday and after workouts
  • Take a potent multi-vitamin
    • Acne can be a sign that something is wrong on the inside. Your skin depends on nutrition. It is a vital organ that is usually neglected. If your body is not receiving the right nutrition, it will fight back. One common way it will rebel is to produce excessive sebum, clogging pores, and reducing the ability for your skin to heal and fight bacteria.
  • Include chromium in your diet
    • Chromium is well known for weight loss diets. But it is also excellent for healing infections on the skin. Taking a chromium supplement once a day will help heal your pimples quickly and prevent future breakouts.
  • Eat carrots for beta-carotene (Vitamin A)
    • Vitamin A strengthens the protective tissue of the skin and actually prevents acne. It helps reduce sebum production. This vitamin is essential for the maintenance and repair of the tissue which the skin and mucous membranes are made of. Vitamin A is also a powerful antioxidant needed to rid your body of toxins. Did you know that a deficiency in vitamin A can actually cause acne?
  • Avoid wearing makeup
    • Leaving makeup products on your skin only contributes to clogging your pores, causing more pimples and blackheads. If you feel you must wear makeup, be sure it is water-based.
  • Drink 8 glasses of water
    • Drinking water is essential for clean skin and your overall health. Water is essential for carrying waste material out of your body... and is quite possibly flare-ups
  • Do not pick or squeeze your blackheads and pimples
    • As tempting as it may be, do not squeeze, scratch, rub or touch your pimples and blackheads. Do any of these actions, actually increases the sebum production. Plus, when you squeeze, you are actually rupturing the membranes below your skin, causing infection and sebum to spread underneath your skin. The result is more pimples.
  • Wash your pillow case every other day
    • Your face lays on your pillow case every day. Your pillow case absorbs the oils from your skin and reapplies the dirt and oil. Thus causing breakouts. Keep your sheets and pillow cases clean.
  • Eat foods rich in zinc
    • Zinc is an antibacterial agent and a necessary element in the oil-producing glands of the skin. A diet low in zinc can actually cause acne breakouts."
