Real Help for Acne Skin
Acne is a very common skin problem that affects people of all ages, especially young adults. Acne usually appears on the face, neck, chest, back and shoulders. It can be categorized by its severity:
Mild Acne describes a few scattered comedones (whiteheads and blackheads).
Moderate Acne refers to a denser collection of comedones as well as, red inflamed lesions.
Severe Acne, also called nodular or cystic acne, describes widespread and deep lesions which are painful, inflamed and red.Acne is a skin condition caused by the over-activity of the glands that secrete an oily substance onto the skin. When pores get blocked, this oil is trapped and bacteria begins to grow. If the pores becomes inflamed a red, swollen pimple appears.
Acne can be caused by a combination of factors including hormone levels, levels of sebum in your skin, stress, harsh products and bacteria in your pores.
While the exact cause of acne is unknown, hormones and genetics definitely play a role in its cause.
Certain medications, greasy cosmetics and creams as well as over cleansing, using exfoliants and not hydrating the skin topically, can also promote acne.
