Treating Acne, Breakouts, and Scars
Oil, dirt, and bacteria can clog pores to cause acne. For as many people who have acne, there are distinct types of acne. Acne can have many different symptoms, and not all treatments work for all symptoms. The list of available treatments is endless, but not all will be right for you. But first, there are some simple ways to combat acne and the scars and marks that are associated with it.
It may be impossible to discover one cause for your acne, but irritating your skin will most definitely aggravate your acne. Avoid the temptation to pick blemishes and make sure your hands are clean when you do have to touch your skin. Also, try to avoid anything that irritates your skin, such as certain foods, make-up, and beauty products. Other causes associated with acne are: stress, hormonal activity, bacteria build up in the pores, certain medications, and family history.
Acne lesions are caused when pores push oil and dirt to the surface of the skin. In general, it is wise to leave acne affected skin relatively untouched because contact with the skin can result in increased irritation and lesions. By adopting these simple habits, you can try to minimize unattractive blemishes and scarring, but in order to get to the root of the problem you will most likely need to seek some extra help.
A good acne treatment should heal old acne scars at the same time that it prevents new acne lesions from forming. However, many acne treatments are made with severe chemicals that will only further dry your already irritated skin. Other side effects of chemical treatments are headaches, dizziness, and even depression. Be careful of treatments that contain benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acids, sulfur, resorcinol, salicylic acid, tretinoin, or retinoic acid (Retin-A). There is, however, an alternative that does not contain these harmful components.
If you want a product that will work gently and naturally, just look to nature. Unique properties heal acne-related complications like cysts, skin abscess, permanent facial scars, keloids and skin pigment changes. It is also good to find an acne and scar treatment which can be applied topically. This means that there are no pills to swallow and it is applied directly to the affected area.
Acne can be painful, embarrassing, and exasperating but it is possible to overcome it. Follow our simple advice and stay away from treatments that contain harsh chemicals and you will be on your way to acne-free skin.
