Permanent Relief from Acne

Getting rid of facial acne is very easy if you understand the reason. The reason for acne formation is a deficiency of an important vitamin, which will be discussed in detail in this article. By acting on such information, you can not only eliminate acne permanently but also prevent its recurrence.

What Is Acne?

Our facial skin contains sebaceous glands that produce oil, known as sebum. Sebum acts as a natural moisturizer, preventing hair and skin from drying. In acne, sebaceous glands in the skin develop inflamed follicles. Their size increases, leading to excessive sebum production, causing oily skin. Alongside this, a bacterium called Propionibacterium acnes or P. acnes proliferates. It usually resides on the skin and remains harmless, often present in friendly bacteria that maintain a good population of skin-friendly bacteria. When this bacterium feeds on sebum, the gland swells, leading to increased sebum production. Consequently, the population of acne bacteria increases. In normal conditions, it harmonizes with our immune system and defense mechanisms. Signals are exchanged, maintaining a friendly relationship in the form of molecules. However, an increase in their quantity triggers the immune system. The immune system becomes active, creating a response in the immune system leading to increased redness and inflammation, resulting in the formation of acnes and pimples.

Why Does The Acne Cycle Persist?

The complete cycle persists due to factors like increased sebum production, elevated acne bacteria, hormonal imbalances during periods, pregnancy, PCOS, medication, or hormonal shifts such as puberty. Factors contributing to a surge in androgens (male sex hormones) include an increase in the number of androgens during puberty, a spike in sex hormones, and a crucial hormone, insulin, being elevated. When your diet is high in carbs, insulin levels remain consistently high. High insulin levels lead to elevated androgen levels, where androgens refer to sex hormones. High-carb diets and constant snacking, known as frequent eating or snacking, also keep insulin levels high. The combination of a high-carb diet and snacking is a detrimental combination, contributing to insulin elevation, which in turn leads to acne formation.


Don't scrub the skin, thinking that using soap or applying any medication is necessary if you believe there are bacteria or excessive oil on your skin. Overdoing it won't help; instead, it might worsen the condition. Excessive sterilization of the skin can lead to more issues.

Tips For Permanent Relief from Acnes

✓ If you want permanent relief from acne, definitely switch to a low carb diet and start intermittent fasting. In intermittent fasting, you refrain from eating for 12, 16, or 20 hours and can consume meals during the remaining hours of the day. Snacking is not allowed all the time. So, cut down on snacks, and you'll see a significant improvement due to intermittent fasting; your skin will clear and glow up.

✓ Vitamin D regulates the growth of Propionibacterium acnes, preventing its proliferation. When Vitamin D levels are low in the body, it disrupts the control of this bacteria's growth. Vitamin D directly controls oil production; sebum production decreases, reducing inflammation, swelling, and sebaceous gland enlargement. Sebaceous gland cells start shrinking, and discussing polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), polycystic and virilization symptoms are linked to low Vitamin D levels in the body. Vitamin D deficiency also impacts and controls androgen levels. The majority of the population often suffers from Vitamin D deficiency, especially teenagers, making it nearly impossible to fulfill the Vitamin D requirement through diet alone. Significant sun exposure is needed to address this deficiency. Afterward, a high-carb diet reduces Vitamin D levels, high sugar levels add to sugar antiques, lowering Vitamin D levels.
This is why diabetic patients always have a Vitamin D deficiency; they lack sufficient Vitamin D due to gastrointestinal issues. If the digestive system is not absorbing Vitamin D properly, there are many reasons for Vitamin D deficiency. To avoid this, maintaining proper Vitamin D levels in the body is crucial.
The first recommendation I would make is to take 2000 IU of Vitamin D3 per day for at least six weeks.

✓ Avoid processed carbs like pasta, pizza, burgers, chickpea flour, refined flour, rice, samosa, and pakora, as they raise blood sugar levels. High sugar levels lead to an increase in harmful bacteria, which is undesirable. Start intermittent fasting; you will notice a significant improvement in your androgens, and your insulin levels will become more stable.

✓ Next on the list is cod liver oil; it contains Vitamin D along with Vitamin A, which is beneficial for skin healing. Following that, incorporate fatty fish like trout and salmon into your diet as they are excellent sources of Vitamin D. By acting on above recommendations, you can achieve long-term relief from acne and prevent its recurrence.
