The Best Natural Astringent  for Acne Prone Skin

A popular way of thinking when you have acne is to scrub your skin as much as possible with products that "sting" in order to get rid of acne -Unfortunately, this is not the case.  That "stinging" feeling doesn't mean that you're doing something good for your skin.  Practices like this actually do more harm than good.  The more chemicals, and product, that you put on your skin, the more your skin is striped of its natural oils, and goes into protection mode and actually produces more oils, which can make your acne worse and chronic! 

We do know that by implementing the proper washing and moisturizing techniques, your chances to get clear skin increases two-fold. And don't forget - you have to treat your skin with an acne treatment when you have acne - it will not go away simply by washing or doing DIY treatments.

Will Teen Acne Go Away on its Own?

Will Teen Acne Go Away on its Own?

The Truth About Teen Acne

 

Most teenagers will experience acne at some point during their adolescent years. A number of factors contribute to teenagers having the highest incidence of acne. Many parents attribute acne to poor diet or lack of attention to proper skin cleansing and moisturizing. However, the real cause of acne is a hormonal imbalance related to adolescence that over stimulates the sebaceous glands.  

 

A hallmark of teenage skin aside from the pimples is "greasy or oily skin". 

The appearance of oily skin goes hand in hand with the increased appearance of acne. The oily skin is due to an over secretion of sebum (skin oil) by the sebaceous glands. This over production of sebum not only manifests itself as oily skin but can also lead to clogged pores that are seen as "white heads" and "black heads." Once the pores of the skin are clogged with sebum, they accumulate dead skin cells and provide a perfect breading ground for the growth of bacteria. This combination of clogged pores and growth of bacteria is responsible for acne.

I would like to thank Dr. Gilligan, Chief Scientific Officer at AcnEase, for collaborating with me today.    

 

So why do guys get acne? You may answer because guys don't take care of their skin as well as their female counterparts; or perhaps their skin hygiene maybe lacking; or maybe guys on average play more sports and sweat more.

Do I have Cystic Acne? Symptoms, Warnings and Treatment

Cystic acne is the most severe form of acne vulgaris.  Acne in general develops due to overactive sebaceous glands.  At the base of each hair follicle is a gland called the sebaceous gland, which makes sebum. Sebum is an oily substance, which under normal circumstances travels along the hair follicle to the surface of the skin. Sebaceous glands are most numerous on the face, chest, back, neck and scalp; consequently, these are the most common sites of acne.  A number of factors can cause an increase in sebaceous gland secretions.  A primary culprit are the androgen hormones (analogs of testosterone) DHT(dehydrotestotsterone) DHEAS (dihydroepiandrosterone).  Elevated levels of these androgens cause an increase secretion of sebum, which can lead to clogged pores and the start of the acne cascade.
