If you’re like most people, there are days when you hit a slump — whether it’s a challenging day at work or at home or just “one of those days.”
In this fast-paced world we live in, it is normal to feel overwhelmed by the many things that are happening all at once.

Almost everyone has suffered from acne at some point or another, and not just teenagers.

What causes rosacea and is there a cure?
Almost 85 percent of people experience acne within the course of a lifetime, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, (1) so it's a very common problem. Many people turn to over-the-counter acne products or prescription drugs for this condition. But many of these products have ingredients that can actually worsen the skin and cause other side effects. Instead, try our natural home remedies for acne that are gentler on the skin and only use natural ingredients you probably already have in your home.
Fran Kerr, author of Clear Skin for Life and How to Heal from Acne Naturally, has been a fan of jojoba oil for years. "I still do love it. I'm a massive fan of it, but I have a new favorite now," she admits. "It's organic hemp seed oil. I am in love with hemp seed oil as a cleanser and moisturizer."
Chris Gibson started developing acne at the young age of 11. He suffered with the skin condition for over 15 years, saying he was well into his 20s when he was cured. In his case, he had cystic acne, which can lead to severe scarring and permanent pockmarks. "Antibiotics... Accutane... [I] tried it all," says Gibson, who often "kept counting on it" to "go away on its own." Yet, he's now been free of his problematic acne for 20 years, saying the simple fix was right in the fruit aisle all along. Apples... yes, apples, were his key for curing his persistent acne.
Recently, two studies were performed to measure the potential of green tea in acne treatment and the results give hope for those looking for an alternative. The findings of these recent studies show that when applied to the affected area, green tea can reduce sebum production, inflammation and bacterial growth in acne-prone skin, as a result of an antioxidant called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG).
Sometime it is impossible to manage your skin specially, when you wake up and find a huge spot on your nose or on a face. However, there are ways to prevent and treat common skin problems.
It is a common inflammatory skin disease characterized by pimples on the face, chest, and back. A pimple starts when the pores in the skin are blocked with a type of oil called sebum, which normally lubricates the skin and hair. It is common during teen age, when hormones are flexible, causing the skin to overproduce sebum.
