Acne is a disorder that occurs when the sebaceous glands in the skin make too much oil (sebum). The oil combines with cells that line the walls of these glands and clogs the skin pores. Clogged pores lead to pimples, whiteheads or blackheads on the face, neck, shoulders, back or chest. The causes of acne are very complex and involve many different systems and chemicals within the body. Hormones, enzymes, and the immune system all interact together resulting in different reactions in each individual.
An orega-skin cream should have active ingredients that kill the bacteria that cause acne on the skin surface.
Oil of Oregano Supplement (P73 source)
An oil of oregano supplement should contain active ingredients that kill the bacteria that cause acne from the inside-out.
High Potency Multiple Vitamin and Mineral
A high potency multiple vitamin and mineral should contain nutrients that support the normal development of skin cells.
Herbal Detoxifiers and Immune Support
Herbal detoxifiers and immune support should help to suppress immune-inflammatory responses that can contribute to acne severity.
Digestive Enzymes and Prebiotics
Digestive enzymes and probiotics should contain a full complement of digestive enzyme as well as prebiotics. The digestive enzymes improve digestions and reduce the complication of leaky gut problems. Many skin inflammatory conditions are aggravated by partially digested food matter entering the circulation and triggering an immune-inflammatory reaction. The prebiotics support the growth of friendly gut bacteria, which have been shown to suppress inflammation in a variety of skin conditions.
