Acne Treatment - Common Facts That Will Help You Treat Acne Faster


Avoid any comedogenic skin care product

Most of the materials that are used for skin and body care are tested for comedogenicity. For that test, the material is applied on the inside of a rabbit's ear and the site observed after three weeks. A biopsy is taken and the comedones are counted. Depending on the comedone formation, the material is classified on a scale of 0 to 5. A material with 0 comedogenic potential will not cause comedones, while one with 5 will cause comedones in the largest quantity.

Take care if you have oily skin-

Our skin has sebaceous glands. These glands produce sebum. This sebum keeps our skin well moisturized and protects skin from microbial infections. The sebum is mainly made of lipids and dead skin cells. The skin constantly produces the sebum. If you don't wash your hair for few days you will find that your hair is oily. That is sebum. What if your body produces more than required sebum? You get oily skin. People with oily skin may get more acne. Use products that absorb excess oils.

Treatment is same for face and body-

Acne is a disease of sebaceous glands. As the glands all over the body are same the acne is also same. There is no difference at all between acne on face and acne on the upper arms or trunk. Please treat acne on all body areas with the same medication. There is no difference.

Miracle cures may not work-

Sunshine, application of toothpaste, essential oils etc. are all used as quick treatments. Before you get taken in by any of such treatments, please consult your doctor.
Acne & Food

There may be a connection between eating a particular food and getting acne. But science has yet to come to a conclusion about it. That does not mean that your acne may not be occurring by a particular food. Science has not solved all the mysteries and many of grandma's recipes work for no scientific reason. It is for you to find a relation between food and acne. Whenever you get a flare up, try to find out if you had eaten any particular food. If this match continues, avoid that food.
