Best Teenage Acne Remedies

Teenage acne causes a lot of embarrassment and confusion for millions of teenagers all over the world since many of them are clueless on the topic of teenage acne treatment. The worst part is that the problem seems to develop overnight. Imagine the horror when you wake up in the morning, look at your face in the mirror and discover that you have acne!

Why Teenagers Face the Pimple Problem?

Most adolescents will face the problem of acne sometime or other in life. This is mostly owing to your hormones being in a constant state of flux; your childhood body struggling to resist the growth of the adult body from within.

The first reaction of most teenagers is to squeeze the puss out. This is a strict no-no since instead of helping; it makes things a lot worse in the long run by infecting the entire area with lots of bacteria. These bacteria are likely to infect other areas, resulting in more blemishes.

Aromatherapy Massage - The Benefits

Aromatherapy massage tends to be more relaxing than other forms of massage such as Swedish. Longer, slower strokes are used, and the massage is much less vigorous. However this does not mean that Aromatherapy massage is not as beneficial in relaxing the muscles, it is just done in a different way.

When going for an Aromatherapy massage you should discuss with the aromatherapist what you hope to achieve from the therapy, if you have particular health or emotional problems you would like treated make sure your therapist knows this. Once you have told the aromatherapist all of your symptoms they will blend together some essential oils with a carrier oil that they feel will benefit you.

There are many essential oils to choose between, so trust your therapist to pick a blend that will include top, middle and base notes. You should feel able to ask your therapist why they are choosing the particular oils added to the blend, and you should check you like the scent of the blended oils before the massage begins.

herapy Helps With Healthy Skin - Essential Oils Of The Bible

One cannot have good skin without nutrients that promote health. The skin is an outward measure of health. Essential oils are important to good skin health and overall health of the body. These oils are gifts from God, which should be used in their natural state.

It would behoove any person seeking good health to become familiar with Aromatherapy, which is the use of aromas from essential oils as therapy. Not only is the aroma beneficial, but they can also be applied directly to the skin, when mixed in carrier oils, such as vegetable oils. They should not be used full strength on the skin in most cases. These oils penetrate the skin and are stored directly beneath the skin, to be used in the body as needed. They work both internally and externally.

Many people today are making their own soaps, perfumes and cleaning supplies with oils, thus avoiding all of the manmade by-products that are in many products on the shelves. When mixing essential oil formulas, use small amounts to assure freshness. (For example, a simple formula for healthy skin is 1 ounce of carrier oil such as, grape seed, apricot or avocado oil, mixed with 4 drops of frankincense, 4 drops of myrrh, and 7 drops of lavender, essential oils.)

Feng Shui Aromatherapy

Feng shui literally means 'wind water' and is a term first coined by Guo Po (276-324 AD) in his book entitled 'Zangshu'... "Qi rides the wind and scatters, but it is retained when encountering water".

Wind corresponds to Wood in the five element model upon which feng shui is based, the other four elements being Water, Fire, Earth, and Metal. It is through a system of correspondences that feng shui practice aims to balance the five elements, and in so doing it achieves it's purpose of delivering health and harmony.

Feng shui aromatherapy is all about enabling the essential balance that leads to well-being and harmony. Essential balance is a state of being that we all experience from time to time, to a greater or lesser extent. We can tell when we are balanced when we feel healthy and happy.
