Mrs Myrna Monday: What can I do About my Acne? How to treat and prevent acne.

Mrs. Myrna Mondays:
Where we answer all of the questions you have about your Lady Parts

Dear Mrs. Myrna, I know this isn't about my lady parts but I need help! What can I do about my acne? It's driving me insane! Sincerely, The Girl That Never Wears Tank Tops

Dear Shoulder Shy Girl,
All of your parts are lady parts and this can not stand! Here are some things that I would recommend:
* If body acne is a problem for you: Try soaking in a warmth bath mixed with Epsom salt. You can buy Epsom salt at any pharmacy or in the pharmacy section at your super market, it comes in a milk carton like box. Its cheap, which is a plus. Mix 2 cups of salt into warm bathwater and soak for about 25 minutes. Do this twice a week until your acne is pretty cleared up, (this should happen within a month) and then do it once a week after that.

* I know you've tried everything to get rid of the acne on your face: and interestingly enough that may be part of the problem. Even if you have oily skin during the day, all of those washes, toners, and gels you put on your face could actually be irritating your skin and making it worse. So, first thing in the morning when you go out I want you to do the unspeakable: put lotion on your face. Get one with some spf and you can protect your skin from the sun and help with your acne at the same time. I know your thinking, "that will make my face break out within the hour!" but give it a try. You might be surprised at how much it helps.

* One last thing... Acne very often gets worse when you are stressed.
And, if you're a woman in our society: your stressed. So, do some things to help you calm down. Meditate for a few minutes every day, pick up a belly dancing class, walk your dog. You will likely find that this helps with your acne and even more importantly helps your heart. Next to red meat there is nothing more dangerous to your heart than stress: it can lead to heart attacks, palpitations, heart disease, high blood pressure.. basically this is really important for your lady parts.
