If you’ve had acne for even a few months
you probably already have some experience with the trial and error method of
finding the right treatment for your skin. No matter where you’re at on your
skincare journey, there are a few things that can help you make some smart
choices, and steer you clear of the wrong ones.
Acne is attributed to a hormonal
imbalance, which can affect the function of the sebaceous glands, whose job it
is to create sebum, or oil. This oil travels along the pore to hydrate and
protect the skin on the surface. When too much sebum becomes clogged within a
pore and pairs with dead skin cells from the surface, bacteria forms,
triggering an inflammatory response from the body. The result of that response
usually appears as red, swollen bumps known as pimples, a symptom of acne. This
process is known as the acne cascade. Therefore, the only REAL way to attaining a
clear and healthy complexion is from inside.
Most people think that topicals will do
the trick when it comes to getting rid of acne.
For most, however, treating acne this way comes with years of guessing
and wasted money, with little to no real results to show for it. In order to
get the skin you dream of, it’s crucial that you understand just what you’re
dealing with before going in with a plan of attack.
Perhaps the best thing to keep in mind
for anyone with acne, regardless of where they might be in their journey is to
keep trying. Acne doesn't form overnight
and it won’t go away that quickly either, so in the meantime, do your best to
find kind and loving things to do for yourself and skin, such as the occasionalall-natural pampering, or
a momentary meditative reprieve. And if
you decide to become an AcnEase user, just remember that it works to deliver
