how to care for acne skin
What is acne?
Acne is an inflammatory skin disorder or skin
disease of the hair follicles and sebaceous glands resulting in
black heads, pimples, cysts, abscesses, all of which can cause
scarring of the skin. Acne is found primarily on the facial
area, however, it can spread to other parts of the body such as
shoulders, back, and arms. Acne is not caused by dirt, dust, or
poor hygiene, although over-cleaning and washing the affected
area can make acne worse by drying the skin and make it sore.
Sweating and humid conditions can also make acne worse.
Some blemish conditions are not curable, but can be 100%
manageable to the point where you will not feel like you suffer
from acne at all. Read about the following myths that have people believe all
kinds of things that are just not so.
Is acne age related?
Acne is most common in teenagers. During
their teen years, adolescents who have developed acne must
ensure that they thoroughly clean their pores and take measures
to prevent scarring. But acne is not restricted to teenagers.
Many people face acne problems in their mid 20's, and acne can
make its first appearance in your 40's. The severity of acne
varies from person to person. Some see their skin totally
covered while others only get a pimple here and there but on a
Can a woman's menstruation make acne worse?
Many women complain of acne or getting pimples
or black heads just before their periods. This is caused by
hormonal changes. Contraceptive pills that contain a high level
of the female hormone estrogen can actually help acne where
progesterone-only pills (the mini pill) can make acne worse.
To pop or not to pop
Trying to pop black heads may do the opposite
of what you're trying to do. It may make the pus and blood go
deeper into the skin rather than making it come out. This can
result in scarring and cysts. To squeeze a pimple, always make
sure you wash your hands just before. The best way to do this
is with a sterilized needle to ensure that you only pierce the
head of the pimple rather than from all sides by squeezing to
pop it. Once you have a small hole in the head of the pimple,
GENTLY squeeze it to get all the pus out. If you squeeze and
play with it until there is no more pus and blood comes out, you
may end up with a scar in that spot.
Is the scarring permanent?
(Click picture to enlarge to see scarring) Acne can and does
leave scars to various degrees and these scars are permanent.
You can prevent them by using the right treatment as soon as
acne starts. In severe scarring situations, cosmetic or plastic
surgery and in some cases, chemical peeling, can help but your
skin will never look and feel healthy again. If your acne is
out of control, your doctor should refer you to a dermatologist
who can prescribe strong treatments to stop the outbreak and
prevent future damage to your skin. To reduce the
appearance of scars
Plazanol regenerative gel stimulates tissue regeneration and
may help reduce the severity of your scars.
