Acne Skin Care How to Make Embarrasing Blemishes Vanish

Acne affects almost everyone of all races and ages. It is most common in adolescents and young adults. Around 85 percent of people between the ages of 12 and 24 develop the disorder. For most people, acne tends to diminish by the time they reach their thirties; however, some people in their forties and fifties continue to have this skin problem. Nearly 17 million people in the United States have acne, making it the most common skin disease. I remember when I used to get acne myself.

Was that annoying. And it sure ruined my social life, that's for sure. There is nothing more embarrasing than going out in public with acne all over your face. You know people are staring at you. You know they don't want to get near you because of those ugly marks on your face.

I think they think it's contagious, which is not true at all. It's a good way to lose friends quickly. So, how did I get rid of my acne ? Well, before you can clear up your skin, you should know exactly who the enemy is and what you're up against. Here's a summary for you and some real solutions. What is Acne? Acne is a disorder resulting from the action of hormones on the skin's oil glands (sebaceous glands), which leads to plugged pores and outbreaks of lesions commonly called pimples or zits. Acne lesions usually occur on the face, neck, back, chest, and shoulders.

Although heredity may be a cause of this problem, it is more associated with hormonal levels and how you care for your skin (e.g. rubbing your skin too much will cause it). Chocolate and greasy foods are often blamed, but foods seem to have little effect on the development and course of acne in most people. In addition, dirty skin does not cause acne and neither does stress. How Is Acne Treated? You can buy over the counter medicine (OTC), see your family doctor, or a dermatologist (skin doctor).

Over-the-counter(OTC) Medicines Benzoyl peroxide, resorcinol, salicylic acid, and sulfur are the most common topical OTC medicines used to treat acne. Topical OTC medications are available in many forms, such as gel, lotion, cream, soap, or pad. Prescription Topical Medicines Several types of prescription topical medicines include benzoyl peroxide, tretinoin, adapalene, and azelaic acid. Some people develop side effects from using prescription topical medicines including stinging, burning, redness, peeling, scaling, or discoloration of the skin. Prescription Oral Medicines Oral antibiotics are thought to help control acne by curbing the growth of bacteria and reducing inflammation.

Examples are clindamycin, erythromycin, sulfur, or isotretinoin. Some people experience side effects when taking these antibiotics, such as an increased tendency to sunburn, upset stomach, dizziness or lightheadedness, changes in skin color, and dry skin. Other treatments There are lazer treatments for rare serious cases and there are safe and natural herbal medications that work like over the counter medications, but often with less side effects. How Should People With Acne Care for Their Skin? *Clean Skin Gently with a mild cleanser 3 or 4 times a day.

*Avoid Frequent Handling of the Skin. *Shave Carefully. *Avoid a Sunburn or Suntan. *Use Non-Oily Cosmetics.

In summary, there are many treatments out there for acne skin problems. The top products are reviewed at our site. Talk to your doctor if you're unsure what to do. Try some of the suggestions mentioned here. In no time at all, you'll look better, feel better, and you'll be back out there enjoying your social life, your friends, and your family much more.
