The Best Natural Astringent for Acne Prone Skin

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.

Products that Amplify the Sun's Effects if You Have Acne

Products that Amplify the Sun's Effects if You Have Acne

Sun is actually very important for our health. When your skin is exposed to natural sunlight (UV rays), your body produces an essentail nutrient, Vitamin D. Having the right level of Vitamin D in your body enables better bone health, psychological balance and even has the potential to assist in decreasing the risk of certain diseases.

On the other hand, sun radiation (UV rays) also damages the DNA of your skin and may result in the most serious form of skin cancer (melanoma) as well as cause dry or discolored skin, premature aging, brown spots and interference with acne treatment.

So how do you find a balance, and protect yourself against sun damage, especially when you have acne?
