Our al­ter­na­tive health guru

Isuf­fer from adult acne. Just over a year ago, I de­cided to be­come drug-free, and have tried so many al­ter­na­tive things in at­tempt to heal my­self. I’m veg­e­tar­ian and eat lit­tle dairy. I am a reiki prac­ti­tioner and re­ceive ki­ne­si­ol­ogy treat­ments. Acne is stop­ping me from liv­ing my life to the fullest. I don’t want to wear makeup con­stantly. What can you ad­vise? Carla, 38, Lon­don

Dear Carla

Acne is some­thing I can re­late to as I suf­fered with out­breaks on my back as well as on my face in my younger years. As usual, stress will ag­gra­vate the prob­lem - but who wouldn’t be stressed when you feel as though you have a face which is ‘glow­ing’ for all the wrong rea­sons?

I’m sure you know how im­por­tant it is to keep af­fected area scrupu­lously clean and steer clear of per­fumed prod­ucts. And still the prob­lem con­tin­ues – I hear you!

Diet

Check noth­ing in your diet is trig­ger­ing skin break­outs. I love straw­ber­ries but they al­ways set me off!drink lots of water, eat plenty of leafy green veg­eta­bles, and avoid fizzy drinks and sug­ary snacks. Don’t for­get the heal­ing power of sleep and the im­por­tance of Omega 3 found in oily fish. If dry skin is a prob­lem, up­ping your es­sen­tial fatty acid in­take with ex­tra vir­gin olive oil will add mois­ture from within.

Adult acne is driv­ing me nuts
