My Vitamin Guide (MVG), an online review of vitamins, supplements, herbal remedies and alternative medicine, announced today it has added an enhanced acne section to its website.
Found online at http://www.MyVitaminGuide.com, MVG provides consumers free information on vitamins and supplements as well as resources, news, advice, and content from medical professionals on more than 650 health concerns and illnesses.
“Teens aren't the only age group concerned about acne. We find many adults are searching for information about acne treatments, acne products, acne prevention, and acne solutions.”
We're pleased to offer information that includes natural acne treatments as well as conventional, medicinal approaches,” said MVG CEO Sam Knoll.
“By providing information in a clear and easy-to-use way, we are helping teens and adults make informed decisions about how to treat their acne effectively.”
The MVG acne section, found at http://www.myvitaminguide.com/acne.html, includes a checklist that rates the effectiveness of nutritional supplements and herbs to help treat acne, as well as helpful dietary and lifestyle changes, and several recommended alternative health treatments.
Holistic treatments like acupuncture can be very helpful for treating acne. Several preliminary studies have reported that a series of eight to fifteen acupuncture treatments is markedly effective in 90% to 98% of patients.
Besides traditional Chinese acupuncture using needles alone, a technique called “cupping” is frequently used in the treatment of acne. Cupping refers to the use of cup-shaped instruments to apply suction to the area being needled. Two preliminary trials of cupping treatment for acne reported marked improvement in 91% to 96% of the study participants.
My Vitamin Guide's acne section also recommends that teens and adults with acne should:
* Keep skin clean with the help of astringent lotions, oil-removing pads, and medicated soaps
* Use acne-fighting lotions that contain salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, niacinamide gel (4%), and tea tree oil (5%)
* Take 60 to 90 mg of zinc each day to improve acne
* If taking extra zinc, add 1 to 2 mg each day of copper to avoid a copper deficiency
* Prevent new breakouts and treat existing cysts with products containing tea tree oil or salicylic acid
