So any suggestion to the cheek or stress acne. Mine are cystic and very painful. How do we reduce our stress to get rid of cysts and acne. Honestly my life is about as stress free as possible right now. Yes I stress over things, but if you can't help stress, how how how can a person with stress acne, heal it????
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Oh and by the way I have moderate, severe acne and cysts (i think) and extremely oily skin. I take a multi vitiman and a B-complex supplement, have also added flax seed oil supplement.
I am going to do accutane, if I cannot control this by my derm appt. Which is end of October. So I have a little over a month to try last resorts before accutane. I have tried ALOT of other products, remedies, perscriptions and so on in the past.
Any suggestions to help the stress? Or am I doomed to resort to Accutane?
For stress I do exercises which includes running, yoga and martial arts.
I used to stress out a lot especially when I was in college. Now I write things down that way I know what I need to get done and wouldnt have to go crazy about what needs to be done.
Each time you're THINKING is stress. Try not to think.. thats what I do, and it significantly help me clear my stress acne. Breathe (shallow breathing) and/or meditate. It might sound crazy or easy for me to say all this.. but i have become a more spiritual person and it takes effort to get thru this.
May i suggest a "pure" neem soap. I use One Village neem soap and it works wonder as it has for many of my friends whom I recommended this product to.
Im glad you're taking flax seed oil.. I suggest pure oil that you can drink or the ground flax seed. The supplements would require you to take multiple capsules per day which would equal to 6 a day.
And I hope that you would abstain from using Accutane because of its side effect. There are other options out there.
I would also like to know where you got your information. I have never heard of any of that beside the hormonal acne being on the chin and lower jawline which I believe is very true. But I don't think breakouts from stress are only located on the cheeks that doesn't make any sense. Exercise is one of the best ways to relieve stress and you have to think every day of your life. How do you just not think? If you want to relieve stress you should exercise, go have some fun with friends or a good laugh, play with your dog or pet, and take time to go get a massage or pamper yourself in some way or another.
