Scott: Let's talk about some common conditions that people have. So many people deal with acne, and it's not just when you're 14 or 15 years old. What are some natural treatments for that, regardless of the age?
Jeanette Jacknin: Well, diet again is very important. Dermatologists didn't use to think that it was, but it's very important. You can see, if you eat more processed food or chocolate, you break out right away.
Scott: Why is that? What is it doing? What is that diet doing to your skin?
Jeanette Jacknin: Well, it's a reflection of the inflammation going on.
Jeanette Jacknin: Also the oils may not be the right oils. They're not the Omega-3, so more sebum is produced.
Jeanette Jacknin: Diet is very important, and so are the supplements if you don't get all of the vitamins in your diet. We know beta carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, all help with acne. They help with tissue healing and they help with your anti-inflammatory antioxidant. Supplementing the diet with the vitamins if you can't get it, well, even if you can, if you have acne, a Vitamin C 1000mg with bioflavanoids three times a day. Vitamin E 400 IU. Vitamin D, depending on your levels, 1000-5000 IU. Beta carotene. All will help your acne as well. They're all anti-inflammatory, and acne is an inflammatory condition.
