Healthy, Radiant Skin is only a Treatment Away

A clear-complexion and healthy, radiant skin is the aspiration of most women, especially for those who suffer from skin disorders such as Acne.

Unfortunately, Acne can’t be cured, but it can be controlled with treatment. The Objective of Acne treatment is to reduce or clear up the spots through skin care or by treatments to inhibit sebum, limit bacterial growth, encourage the shedding of skin cells and the unclogging of pores.

What is Acne?

Acne is a skin condition that consists of spots or painful bumps on the skin. It is most noticeable on the face, but can occur on the back, shoulders and buttocks and severe Acne can cause scarring. Acne is mainly caused by the way the skin reacts to hormonal changes, like during puberty, and in women, before a menstrual period and sometimes prior to the menopause.

The skin contains sebaceous glands that naturally release sebum, an oily substance that helps protect the skin. During puberty, for example, the raised levels of the hormone testosterone can cause too much sebum to be produced. The sebum can block hair follicles and when dead skin cells mix with the blockage, it can plug the opening of the pore which in turn causes the hair follicle beneath to swell.

Bacteria in the skin then multiply creating a swelling beneath the blockage and this leads to the formation of spots. Painful or inflammatory Acne needs to be treated early to help prevent scarring.
What are the Treatments for Acne?
Treatment for Acne depends on how severe it is and it can take several months of treatment before the symptoms of Acne improve. There are many Over-the-counter remedies for mild Acne such as Anti-biological or Vitamin A creams or gels. Your General Practitioner can proscribe Antibiotic medicines, but these can only be used for up to 6 months and the side effects can include becoming resistant to antibiotics. Other side effects may include making your skin more sensitive to sunlight or making contraceptive pills less effective and may also cause nausea.
