Whether you’re just at the start of your acne
journey, or have been navigating these waters for a while now, the information
you see online and elsewhere may leave you feeling confused. In order to treat
your condition, it’s important to understand just how acne affects your skin
and body, and what’s really going on when you read those numbers.
Acne is the most common skin condition in the United
States, and can affect anyone regardless of age, race, or sex. 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
known as P. acnes forms, triggering an inflammatory response from the body.
This process is known as the acne cascade, and usually results in red, swollen
bumps known as pimples, a symptom of acne.
With so much information out there, we know how overwhelming treatment can be,
which is why we decided to back up the stats with some real facts to help you
stay informed and on the path toward clear and healthy skin!
When it comes to acne treatments, AcnEase does what
most acne treatments fail to address: it targets the problem from within while
maintaining a safe experience at every measure, unlike many prescription
options, such as Accutane (which is currently off the market due to a class
action suit). AcnEase has shown to successfully improve acne in more than 95% of patients
in controlled clinical studies because it treats the problem at its source -
the sebaceous glands, by creating a buffer between them and any haywire
hormones that might trigger excessive sebum production. Combining our expert
knowledge with a love for safe, herbal alternative medicines to deliver a truly
effective solution to acne, without the side effects, AcnEase is designed to
provide relief for any one of the 60 million people living with active acne, no
matter how mild or severe their symptoms
