Take acne into your own hands

You can combat acne at home with ingredients you probably already have in your cupboard. These DIY at-home acne remedies are gentle and effective.

You don’t have to be a teenager to experience the angst-inducing effects of acne. Thankfully there are several at-home remedies you can easily put together to help soothe your skin and combat a dreaded breakout.

Dr. Agnes is the founder of AcnEase, a unique provider of alternative and complementary health care solutions in the U.S and global marketplace. According to Dr. Agnes, scientists have found that cocoa can contain more antioxidants per cup than red wine or green tea.

There is also data suggesting that regular eating (or drinking) of dark chocolate without sugar (or strong dark chocolate-based cocoa [without sugar]) can calm skin that’s been irritated by sun exposure, and in general, improve skin texture, hydration and appearance. Cocoa butter is actually a familiar additive to many cosmetic products such as body butters, creams or scrubs.

She notes that, in general, chocolate and chocolate-based products are good natural choices to improve your skin. It will act as a moisturizer (makes skin smoother and more supple); calm irritated, dry skin; promote rejuvenation from inside out and help detoxification.

Appetizer: Fresh Oysters on half a shell, lemon wedges; arrange on crushed ice
Oysters are very rich in zinc, which is essential for testosterone production and the maintenance of healthy sperm. Even though women have far less testosterone than men, it plays a key part in the female libido as well. Oysters also boost dopamine, a hormone, which results in increased libido in both men and women.

Main Course:  Broiled trout or wild salmon; stir-fry asparagus with crushed garlic; avocado salad.
Trout and wild salmon are high in Omega-3, which will certainly increase overall health and sexual stamina, improve mood and memory and of course bring a healthy glow to your skin. Asparagus has plenty of Vitamin B that helps increase production of histamine. Histamine is important for healthy sex drive for both men and women. Garlic contains Allicin, a compound credited with increasing blood flow to the sexual organs. Some experts believe that garlic is a very powerful aphrodisiac–but it doesn’t work overnight, so you will need to make it a part of your daily diet to see the real effects. Avocado is rich in folic acid for increased energy, and its healthy fats help many body functions. It also contains Vitamin B6, which is instrumental in the production of androgens (male hormones) that are so important for both women and men in supporting their sex drive.

Real Guys Have Acne Too tips to prevent them
Real Guys Have Acne Too tips to prevent them
November 07 2012

More than 60 million adults in the US are diagnosed with acne, over 50% of adult women and 25% of adult men having this skin disease. The average age of an individual with acne problem is now, 26.5, while just 10 years ago it was 20.5.

So what other myths prevent men from having clear skin?

Acne is only for teens. If you toughen up and wait until those uncomfortable years are gone- acne problem will go away too. Wrong!

The reality is that most acne can be traced back to fluctuations in hormone levels. A common misunderstanding is that men have testosterone and women estrogen and progesterone; the truth is that both – males and females have a balance of all three hormones. The primary cause of the formation of acne is a fluctuation in androgens (male’s hormones) and in particular testosterone, DHEAS (dihyroepiandrosterone sulfate) and DHT (dehydrotestosterone). Elevation in these hormones can lead to over secretion by the sebaceous glands and the onset of acne formation.
