ACNE & BLEMISHES

acne treatments for clear and healthy skin

Did you know that 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 40 have experienced acne at some point in their lives? That is almost 9/10 people!

 

Many people have the misconception that simply cleansing the skin and using all the right products is enough for treating acne. However, people often don’t see the results that they are expecting even though they feel like they have been taking good care of their skin.

There are many topical treatments and procedures for acne and usually, at Euro Charm Skincare & Body Clinic, we recommend a customized plan depending on the severity and type of acne you have.

ACNE FAQ

WHAT IS ACNE?


In order to understand the causes of acne, we must first understand what the role that our sebaceous glands play. Sebaceous glands are oil-secreting glands that exist throughout all areas of the human skin except on our lips, palms and the soles of our feet. These oils glands are hooked up to pilosebaceous units which are our pores. When the sebaceous glands are producing excess oil, it does not necessarily result in acne; you might just experience oily skin. However, when there is a clogged pore or when excess is being produced and the pore becomes obstructed and then inflamed, this results in acne.




WHAT ARE SOME COMMON CAUSES OF ACNE?


There are many different reasons why an individual may develop acne. However, finding the root cause of acne is more important than the treatment when it comes to preventing acne in the long-run. The obstruction of pores is a common cause of acne, especially those who are struggling with recurring and stubborn acne. Obstruction causes can be anything mechanical, such as subconsciously putting your hands on your face while you’re at your desk, wearing a sweatband while you exercise, or even just not washing your pillowcase often enough! It is extremely important to be aware of how you treat your skin throughout the day an avoid obstructing your pores. Hormonal imbalances are another common cause of acne. Hormonal spikes and imbalances in both women (estrogen and progesterone) and men (testosterone) can cause increased production of oils through the sebaceous glands. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that can cause irregular and higher than usual secretions of hormones which, in turn, causes the skin to produce excess oils. For some women, taking birth control pills can help with acne by blocking receptor sites at oil production cells causing them to be unresponsive to their own hormones. Individuals who work out may also suffer from acne if they are taking supplements as that can affect their hormone levels.




WHAT CAUSES RECURRING ACNE?


Recurring acne is essentially acne that keeps coming back to a certain spot. Here are some common areas that people experience recurring acne and their common causes: Forehead Acne - Here you want to make sure your pores don’t get clogged. Many people subconsciously put their hands on their forehead when reading which can clog the pores. As the oil builds up behind it, it can cause inflammation. The obstruction of the gland by pressure from head accessories like baseball hats or headbands can also be a reason for recurring acne on the forehead. Cheek Acne - Inflammation or irritation of the pores and the oil building up behind it will cause acne on your cheeks or on the side of your face. When you use your phone for a long period of time, or subconsciously putting hands on your cheek when you have your elbows on the desk is a very common cause of clogged pores and acne along the side of your face. Hairline Acne - Oil-based hair products can cause pores to clog. A lot of common skin care products like cleansers, moisturizers, or creams can also be the culprit behind clogged pores. The key to preventing this sort of acne would be to use non-comedogenic products which are essentially products that use ingredients which do not block your pores and prevent excess oil from turning into acne. If a product is non-comedogenic, it is usually indicated on the product label. Chin and Jawline - Acne found on the chin or jawline are typically hormonally stimulated. There are some common medications like spironolactone which block the stimulation of hormones to the oil glands, decreasing the production of oil. Birth control is another drug that changes the hormonal stimulation of the skin. As previously mentioned, birth control pills can block receptor sites, preventing excessive oil production.




CAN STRESS CAUSES ACNE?


Stress most definitely can cause acne! Stress is an obvious but often overlooked reason for recurrent acne. Hormones that increase when we are stressed can also stimulate excess oil production. If you think stress is contributing to your acne, try to be more aware of your mental state throughout the day. A proper diet, regular exercising and lots of sleep prove to be beneficial! There are many topical treatments and procedures for acne and usually, we recommend a customized plan depending on the severity and type of acne you have.
