Why Acne Return and What To Do To Stop The Acne Cycle
Many acne sufferers are
distraught not only by the fact that they get acne and by a difficult process
of getting rid of unsightly pimples, blackheads, whiteheads or cysts, but also
because even after they clear their skin - acne often return.
So why acne problem is so
persistent and why for many acne sufferers it seems to be a cycle:
What causes acne:
Acne is caused by an internal
physiological imbalance that
results in overproduction of sebum (skin oil) by the sebaceous glands. This overproduction of sebum leads to clogged
pores comedones (whiteheads and blackheads) and once bacteria start to grow in
the clogged pores the appearance of pimples. Topical acne products target
existing comedones and pimples and don’t really target the cause of acne.
Prescription drugs like Accutane do reduce sebum production but have many side
effects, sometimes so severe that patients need to sign the liability release
form. The all natural ingredients in AcnEase also work to reduce sebum
What causes the increased
sebum production varies from individual to individual for many it relates to
fluctuations in hormones levels, that can be due for instance to puberty or to
a woman’s menstrual cycle. Two
totally distinct occurrences, but the same underlying factor, fluctuating
hormone levels. Some women have androgen induced acne due to over secretion of
hormones made by the adrenal gland.
How AcnEase Prevents Acne From Returning
actually works in each of these acne settings, what can differ is the number of
tablets required to achieve clear skin as well as the duration of
treatment. Another variable is whether
once an individual stops taking AcnEase or any other product for acne will the
acne return? This depends on the root
cause of their acne. The ingredients in AcnEase work to overcome the impact of
the imbalance on the sebaceous glands. This can work for an extended period of
time, however, over time the original factor responsible for acne might
resurface and initiate the change in physiologic balance. The good news is for
those that have used AcnEase then can restart a short course of treatment and
head off a full blown return to acne.

Citric acid present in lemon can
help neutralize and control the natural oil secretion of your skin. Yogurt, on
the other hand, contains lactic acid that acts as a natural
cleanser, sloughing off
dead skin cells and excess oil that may give rise to acne

- Fresh lemon juice (control oil secretion) – 2 tablespoons
- Yogurt (skin cleanser) – 2 tablespoons
- Mix lemon juice and yogurt
- Take 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt in a bowl.
- Add 2 tablespoons of freshly
squeezed lemon juice to it.
- Use a
hand blender to form a consistent paste.
Apply this mask
once a week to get rid of oily skin
- Using a face pack brush, apply the paste all over the face,
leaving the area around the eyes.
- Leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes, and then rinse with warm water.
