Nearly every teen gets acne at some point. Obviously the
degree of acne breakouts will vary from sporadic pimples to a true “invasion”
of acne cysts. So -it is not a surprise
that nearly every teen spends loads of time and money trying to get that acne
to go away.
Teen acne is a very common skin issue. Although
frustrating, teenage acne can and should be treated as they may not go away and
transform into chronic adult acne or leave the acne marks and scars making much
longer impact on once life that they should.
It seems everyone has advice: scrub the skin until it shines, stay away from chocolate and fries, do not touch the face because dirty hands cause breakouts. But even with an ultra-healthy diet and squeaky-clean skin, acne can still
But you don't have to wait for acne to go away on its own and
wonder if they really do…. There is acne treatment option available that will help get breakouts under
When breakouts first appear, the first place most people turn is to
the skin care aisle at the local drug store. There are
plenty of over-the-counter acne products to choose from. Maybe even
too many especially since NONE OF THEM treats the cause of teen acne that is
hormonal imbalance natural for puberty. Hormones are known to be the major culprit
as overstimulating sebaceous glands what is a starting point for acne cascade.
In truth all those over the counter topical products only
address one aspect of acne formation that is try to scrub of bacteria that
thrive in surplus of sebum. And this is a good beginning: mild non-irritating
cleanser used morning and night, and every time sweating (sports), or make-up
is involved can be an excellent beginning of the fight with acne. (non
irritating and non over-drying cleanser is recommended that over dried skin
will actually produce MORE skin oil (sebum) to “protect“ itself. In addition-
salicylic acid and peroxide increase skin pho-sensitivity SUN !!!and are also
listed on the warning FDA list for possible more severe adverse effects
Still -when proper cleanser is in your bathroom (and being
used) it is just a first step of your anti-acne strategy.
Remember, over-the-counter cleansers and lotions may show
temporary improvement if you have mild acne but they are not really a treatment for acne
and will not help with more serious breakouts.
When acne gets more persistent acne, or deep, inflamed nodules or painful cysts, many
look into a prescription acne medication.
Some medicines that are prescribed to treat
teen acne include:
As topicam treatment may be combined with some more
sophisticated natural options (www.acnease.com), systemic
medications for acne including
isotretinoin and oral antibiotics may carry number of
serious adverse effects and the first brand isotretinoin -Accutane has been even taken off the market
and is a subject of a Class Action Suit resulting from those effects
