Acne

What is acne?

Spots, pimples, redness and inflamed skin. The causes of acne can vary from person to person, often making people feel embarrassed or self-conscious. It's common for teenagers to have acne when their hormone levels are fluctuating and it normally goes away after their teen years. However, for some adults, acne continues to be a problem. It may be linked to hormones, blocked hair follicles, excess oil produced by sebaceous glands or possibly dietary issues. An intolerance to certain foods, for example, may result in excess histamine being produced in the body. This can cause inflammation in the body wherever there are histamine receptors, including the skin. Histamine created on the skin can also give rise to spots.

Common symptoms include:

  • Blackheads
  • Pimples
  • Nodules
  • Spots
  • Whiteheads
  • Pustules
  • Cysts
  • Reddening of the skin
The skin is the largest detoxifying organs of the body, and sometimes it may need a little help eliminating toxins.

How does Toxaprevent help?

Toxaprevent helps acne in two ways - the Skin range alleviates acne symptoms on the skin and the Digestive range helps tackle the problem from inside the body.

The SKIN Salve is ideal for acne which isn't too severe. Apply this to the affected area and it will absorb histamine and toxic irritants on the surface of the skin, which are then washed away. For severe acne, a much more intense detoxification will work better - the SKIN Suspension. Once applied, the suspension penetrates further into the skin. This means the active ingredient in Toxaprevent works deeper in the skin to draw out histamine and other irritants which it binds to, ready to be washed off and eliminated - a much more intense course than the Salve.

To help the problem from inside the body, Toxaprevent PLUS Sachets will absorb and eliminate histamine and heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, in the digestive tract. With less histamine circulating, inflammation can be reduced on the skin. Heavy metals can contribute to a hormone imbalance which can cause acne, so removing lead and mercury from the body will contribute to rebalancing hormone levels and reducing acne symptoms.

Recommendation

Apply the SKIN Salve to affected area up to two times a day.

Toxaprevent SKIN Suspension can be applied to the affected area for up to 2 hours, twice a day maximum, using the medical foil provided to keep the suspension moist. Only use the suspension and salve on closed skin.
