First of all we need to understand the meaning of acne before we get to know what causes it and how it can be prevented. Knowledge about the growth stage of acne and its type will be helpful in determining the treatment which is best for you.
Now-a-days one of the most common skin condition the country is dealing with is acne. Acne is basically a disease of the oil-producing or sebaceous glands of the face, back and chest. It affects specially the teenagers during their puberty stage, people also face acne in their thirties and can also run until the age of fifties. More common acne can be seen among the teenagers and is primarily accounted to cleanliness of the skin, bacteria and skin whitening creams. There can be certain medical conditions that can cause adult acne; these are conditions like hypo-thyroidism, Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) or excess testosterone generation.
To know the possibility of your skin developing into acne there is a need to have a look into the science behind acne. As mentioned earlier, acne is a disease of follicles of hair that get plugged by the excessive amount of sebum or oil which is generated by the sebaceous or oil producing glands attached to it. When it is covered by a layer of skin this appears as a whitehead. It becomes black due to the oxidation on account of air contact and hence it is called as blackhead. It might surprise you but whiteheads and blackheads are also acne, they are the non-inflammatory form of acne and this is the reason why regular clean-ups are necessary to make sure that your pores do not turn into clogged pores.
The obstructed hair follicle or comedone progressively grows causing, bursting of the skin layers and enabling secretion of disturbing substances and microscopic organisms inside the skin which brings about irritation. This skin inflammation appear as Papules (aggravation close to the skin’s surface); Pustules (more profound irritation bringing about discharge arrangement which appears as a more white or yellower top, likewise called pimples) and ultimately nodules and cysts.
Serious acne are which can be growths, knobs or conglobate, show up as expansive rosy aroused imperfections more often than not covering a vast bit of the face, back or chest. These can last normally months and tend to make irreversible harm to the skin. While the non-fiery skin break out can be averted and treated by home cures, the provocative ones need professional medication.
Cleansing-Toning-Moisturising (CTM) is a very basic advice to follow regularly in a routine. Now, before picking up any CTM products our advice for you is to consult a dermatologist. Since mild CTM do not cause any damage to the skin still it is suggested to consult a specialist, before trying any new regime. In addition to that the products that target a particular skin condition should also be avoided.
Another important thing to do is to follow a healthy life style and maintaining a healthy eating habit and not to keep touching your face as it may cause bacteria to move from your hands to your face so it is also suggested that we should always keep washing our hands regularly. Although stress and lack of sleep are not having any direct relation to the cause of pimples but there can be indirect relation of causing hormonal imbalance and this is the reason why acne break out have been accepted.
Applying heavy makeup can clog pores of the skin and also aggravate acne concerns hence it should be avoided. Many of us do not know but if a person does not use their conditioner properly in the head wash, he/she might face back acne so there is a need to wash off your hair oil and conditioner properly and regularly.
It is appropriate that you go for medi-facials rather than the typical clean-ups and get them every month and a half. This is on the grounds that as against the typical facials which deal with the skin, medifacial medicines are tweaked by the therapeutic specialists for the person’s skin type. These Medifacials treat the skin from the inside, unclogging the pores, controlling the oil generation in the sebaceous organs in particular and expanding the skin’s insusceptibility over all.
