Acne Skin Care

Do you have any oily or acne prone skin (Find out your skin type)? If yes, than the probability of having acne or pimples is quite high on your skin and you need to take better acne skin care.

Cause of Acne

Acne is something which happens to everybody at some stage of her/his life. But mostly it is seen in teenage years. The most common causes for acne and acne scars are genetics, hormones and stress. At puberty, the body begins to release androgens hormones. Those who are acne prone, have oil glands that tend to overreact to this harmore. These oil glands which are attached to the skin pores, secrete excessive amount of oil in response to this hormone. At the same time, the cells lining their skin pores do not exfoliate normally and tend to stick together. Normally, these epithelial cells are loose and exfoliate in a normal fashion. This combination of accumulated cells and too much oil creates a plug in the skin pores producing a microcomedo (blackhead & whitehead). Meanwhile, bacteria called propionibacterium acnes that are normally present on the skin in small quantity, are nourished by this lipid-rich milieu and proliferate. As they grow in numbers, these bacteria produce chemical substances that cause inflammation, which leads to acne lesions such as papules, pustules and nodules.

Acne Treatment

Acne treatment is aimed towards these two things (to counter acne causes mentioned above):

  1. Open Clogged Skin Pores
  2. Control Propionibacterium Bacteria (Acne Causing Bacteria)

So anything which either opens the clogged skin pores or control the propionibacterium bacteria in the skin can stop/reduce the acne and hence work as acne treatment.
