What Causes Acne

Acne vulgaris (pimples) is a common chronic skin condition that occurs in teens and adults. It results from faulty follicular keratinization - some of the skin cells get sticky and don't exfoliate properly. This causes microcomedones. There is also sebaceous gland hyperactivity which causes an increase level of oil production by the skin. Under these conditions the skin surface bacteria, Propionibacterium acnes, proliferates more heavily which may lead to inflammatory acne. Occasionally these changes may lead to scarring.


Factors that influence acne include:
-Medications such as steroids, Lithium and other mood stabilizers as well as certain contraceptives such as depo-provera.
-Menstrual cycle
-Emotional stress which leads to higher levels of certain hormones such as cortisol and androgens
-Overproduction of androgens
-Family history
-Materials that obstruct the follicles such as helmet straps, shoulder pads, or tight headbands
-Picking


Factors that don't cause acne are:
-Chocolates, fatty food or sodas
-Poor hygiene
-Not washing the skin vigorously


You don't just grow out of this condition. There are treatments which work for acne. These will be covered in the next blog.

Does diet have any influence at all?

No, there is no data that diet has an influence.

Many people feel that their acne is overly embarrassing and unmanageable. I have read story after story of heartache, especially from teens that endure heartless bullying from schoolmates. There are so many different remedies and medications. What most people fail to realise is that each individual has a different biological makeup and what works for one person may not work for everyone. In some cases certain acne treatment can adversely affect already irritated skin. This further causes unnecessary embarrassment and frustration to an already uncomfortable situation. Propaganda fuels misconceptions about different so-called remedies and even causes. The idea that chocolate and oily food causes acne is unfounded. When in truth, makeup, unhealthy skin and even perspiration can cause acne. All of these factors affect the skin. But even your skin makeup can affect your skin and create back acne, scalp acne, large assesses or ingrown hair. There is an acne treatment questionnaire (just navigate to it on the right hand side) done by a company called SkinMed that will help to diagnose acne problems through a series of questions, and then it recommends the best acne treatment for each individual. Teen acne is typically the most difficult to diagnose because of hormonal considerations, but there is a special area meant just for teen acne that has a completely different set of rules when running the formula that determines the best medications or treatments. In some cases simple changes in hygiene and daily washing is all that it takes. The site also has a free offer on an acne facial cleanser that is made up of a three step process. The primary reason most teens, especially boys tend to have more problems with chronic acne is because of a lack of simply washing their face regularly. So this treatment is free and is a way to create a healthy daily routine, while gently healing the skin to prevent acne scarring brought on as a result of squeezing the sores. Once daily cleaning is practiced, and hormonal issues are taken into consideration, a proper treatment regiment can be highly effective. At the end of the day most acne, even teen acne , can be eliminated quickly and permanently with the right motivation. After all, we all want to be beautiful don’t we?
