Use Principles Of Weight Loss To Create An Effective Acne Vulgaris Treatment

Fundamental principles of weight loss can be applied to developing an effective acne vulgaris treatment by applying a lateral thinking perspective. Lateral thinking basically involves thinking outside of the box to find unorthodoxed solutions to a problem. Even though I have never been overweight, for many years I fought the the battle of severe, painful zit outbreaks. As I successfully controlled and eventually eliminated acne out-breaks I realized there are similarities between my quest to vanquish zits and other people’s battle to lose weight.

Radical Change

The desire for radical change is a common approach that many times is not a long-term sustainable approach. The urgency of, ‘I need to lose weight for my wedding’, is similar to the urgency of ‘I need to get rid of these zits by [blank]’. You can fill in the harrowing deadline that looms ahead and causes much anxiety. The result is an act of desperation to get rid of the weight and the zits as soon as possible.

The bride-to-be as well as the zit-faced sufferer may or may not achieve their goal by their deadline. In both scenarios, there are varying degrees of outcomes ranging from success to failure.

Regardless of the outcome, any change achieved usually does not last. The weight is gained and the zits reappear at a later time.

Different Strokes for Different Folks

Another similarity between an effective weight loss plan and an effective acne vulgaris treatment plan is that one size does not fit all. Just as there are different weight loss techniques that work for some people and not for others, there are different zit zapper treatments that work for some people yet not for others. The key is to find the at home acne treatment that is right for you. With time as well as trial and error, patience and perseverance does pay off.

The Best Options May Be The Slowest Options

Many times losing weight, as well as eliminating acne, takes much longer than desired. Especially, if there is a pressing deadline like a wedding, a job interview or a first date.

Instead of going on a grapefruit diet that is not sustainable long-term, make small yet consistent changes to the way that you eat and drink. For example, eliminate sodas from your diet. Likewise when it comes to controlling and eliminating zits, start with a natural at home zit treatment. For example, there are a variety of effective facial masks that you can make from ingredients in your fridge and cupboard.

The other benefit of not taking a radical approach to change is that you are less likely to revert back to your old habits. Even a ‘no carbs’ diet is not sustainable and when you fall off the wagon or re-introduce carbs into your diet, you may gain the weight again. Regarding acne vulgaris, there is no medicine or treatment that will ‘cure’ acne, only control the outbreaks. Alternatively, if you use an at home zit treatment with natural ingredients when the zits clears up you should continue the home regiment to prevent and control future outbreaks. Since the natural regiment is inexpensive, easily available and without side-effects it can be a sustainable, long-term way for you to maintain a clear complexion. Remember, completely stopping treatment may result in the return of pimples since adults as well as teens experience acne outbreaks.

Change Your Focus

Changing your focus may be a simple but effective way to get results.

Instead of focusing on ‘losing weight’, focus on ‘being healthy’. Your perception will change. You won’t feel like your denying yourself the taste of soda since the soda has no nutritional value.

Instead of focusing on ‘getting rid of embarrassing zits asap’, focus on nurturing and caring for your skin. As difficult as it may be, don’t be critical of how you look. Implement a natural at home zit treatment that is sustainable. Your skin may reward you with a clear, glowing complexion.
