What Is It?
Acne is the most common of all medical skin conditions. Over 90 percent of people have had or will have some form of acne throughout their life. Though mostly acquired during puberty due to an excess of hormones, acne is still able to appear into late adulthood. Though acne can be embarrassing and sometimes cause insecurities, the good news is that acne is only a skin condition, and has no actual effect on your health.
What Causes it? What Does It Look Like?
Acne is generally caused by excess oil, bacteria, inflammation, and clogged pores. Acne manifests as a small blackhead or whitehead, commonly referred to as a pimple. For many people acne is genetic, and progressively develops through adolescence, but studies have shown that acne can derive from an imbalance of hormones as well as stress. Acne is mostly rendered on the face but can also appear on the back, neck, chest and arms.
What Can you do to Treat It?
A few things to help with acne are to wash your face twice daily, and make sure you don’t overextend the amount of times you use creams and products. It’s also very important that you don’t touch, scratch, or ‘pop’ the acne because this will not only leave permanent scaring, but it will also leave your skin more susceptible to bacteria. There are a number of different over-the-counter treatments containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid to heal general cases of acne. More severe cases may require prescription medications.
