Acne

Have you got acne? Acne is probably the scourge of adolescent years, however it can follow people into middle age and beyond. Acne is a term for a variety of symptoms for example pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads. It's a condition where the pores of skin become clogged and the individual gets inflamed and non inflamed lesions. So what's the root cause of all the clogging? Acne is genetic it seems to run in families, it is an inherited imperfection of your pores. If both your parents had acne, three out of four of your brothers and sisters will get it also. Things which could aggravate an acne outbreak are: - Stress, sun exposure, seasonal changes, and climate can all precipitate an acne attack. Certain types of makeup and taking birth control pills can also cause a breakout. In adult women, make up is the major factor in acne outbreaks, particularly oil based products. It's the oil that causes the situation. The oil is often a derivative of fatty acids that are more potent than your own fatty acids. Use a non oil based make up if you are prone to acne. Cosmetic products that contain lanolins, isopropyl myristate, sodium lauryl sulphate, laureth- 4 and D& C red dyes should be avoided. Like oil, these ingredients are too rich for your skin. Cleanse Properly. Wash your make up off completely each evening. Use a mild soap twice a day and be sure to rinse the soap entirely off your face. Rinse six or seven times with fresh water. No matter what make up you use, make an effort to reduce the amount you put on. Don't squeeze pimples or whiteheads. A pimple is an inflammation, and you could add to the inflammation by squeezing it, which could lead to an infection. A pimple will always go away in one to four weeks if you leave it alone. Most pimples are best left alone, but there is one kind that you can squeeze . If the pimple has a little central yellow pus head in it, then a gentle squeeze will make it pop open. Once the pus pops out, the pimple will heal more quickly. It's also possible to get rid of blackheads by squeezing them. A blackhead is a very blocked pore, and a gentle squeeze will help rectifty this. Give Dry Skin Extra Care. Dry skin can be sensitive to some over the counter skin treatments, use these treatments carefully. Begin with the lesser strength products first, and then increase the concentration slowly. Stay Out Of The Sun. Acne medications may cause undesirable reactions to the sun, so minimize you exposure until you know what the reactions going to be. Don't mix treatments, use only one at a time simply because they may cause an adverse reaction if mixed together. Prevent The Spread Of Acne. Apply acne medication about half an inch around the affected area, to help keep the acne from spreading. Acne moves across the face from the nose to the ear, so you need to treat outside of the inflamed area. Many people make the mistake of treating only the pimples and not the outlaying areas of skin.
