Since the initial publication of my book, The Acne Prescription in Fall 2003, I have received a steady stream of letters and e-mails about this systemic, inflammatory disease. (And, make no mistake, acne is a disease that affects young and old, males and females.)
Clogged pores, whiteheads, and blackheads, along with full-blown acne lesions can be successfully treated. The best news is that they can even be prevented from forming in the first place. Most people believe that acne is a scourge of the young, yet in reality, a large number of adults battle acne, too. And, if you are an adult suffering from acne you are particularly vulnerable to scarring – all the more reason to prevent an acne lesion from forming to begin with.
It all begins with the very foods that you eat and nutritional supplements. It really is that simple.
If you are serious about eliminating acne once and for all, follow the anti-inflammatory diet; take body supplements, particularly the pycnogenol and Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids; and start a healthful, stress-reducing exercise regimen. All of these tips follow the Perricone Prescription Diet.
This three-tiered program is the best treatment for adult acne. Following it will get rid of your acne, and you will receive the added benefit of preventing many of the signs of aging. You will discover that not only is there a “facelift in your fridge,” but skin clear, beautiful, acne-free skin as well!
