Our skin is very delicate and in order to keep it looking youthful and beautiful
one has to take lots of care. Your skin looks its best in your teens but if you do
not take proper care then you will start looking older than your age. Thus give yourself
15 mins everyday and care for your skin.
“Get the Right New Haircut
A good haircut helps in cutting down age. Thus next time you visit your hairdresser
make sure you go for a younger cut.
Acne is a common problem faced by almost all teen-agers and youth. What is acne and
why do we get them. Acne is actually caused because of hormone imbalance. Your skin
breaks out because of a hormone called testosterone. Both men and women have testosterone
in their systems. In fact, did you know that in order to make testosterone, boys
bodies have to make female hormones first? If you have acne, you haven't got abnormal
levels of testosterone. You've got skin that reacts abnormally to this hormone. You
start producing testosterone around the time you start sprouting body hair. Testosterone
tells glands in your skin, called sebaceous glands, to produce oily stuff called
sebum. To add to the problem the inside of the tubes that hold each hair become gummy
and get partially blocked - giving you blackheads. Put together if sebum blocks the
tubes --- you have big acne.
So go to your pharmacist or doctor to get your acne treated.
Blackhead is caused when excess skin oil, sebum and congesting toxins are expelled
through your skin from the blood and lymph fluid that supplies your skin with nutrients.
These congesting toxins combined with skin oil and sebum clogs your pores causing
blackheads, whiteheads, and full blown acne.
Thus after knowing the cause of blackhead you can easily deal with it. All you have
to do is stop the formation of these congesting toxins combined with skin oil and
sebum that builds up in your sebum channels. Thus applying anything externally will
not help because blackhead is basically an INTERNAL problem. Thus to get rid of blackheads
you've got to normalize your skin's sebum or oil production and purify your blood
of congesting toxins. The key to effective blackhead prevention lies in your liver
function. Thus you have to improve and strengthen your liver function.
Follow the following diet and free the body of harmful toxins in order to have a
beautiful and vibrant skin. This diet will also improve and strength your liver functions.
However you have to take care that from now on you follow a healthy and well balanced
diet. This journey is very difficult and thus start only if you have the confidence
in you and don't give up in between.

Lips do not produce oil like our skin, because they have no oil producing glands.
