Teen Acne

Teenaged GirlAt least 90% of adolescents have acne, so if you’re a suffering teen you are certainly not being singled out. Acne affects teens and adults of every size and shape in every country with every ethnic background. Not surprisingly these days, acne is one of a teenagers biggest worries. Acne not only affects an adolescent’s facial appearance, but also can play a big role in self-esteem, effecting social contact, after school activities and the desire to obtain part time employment.

It does seem unfair that just when you’re beginning to grow up and define who you are that you can be faced with this socially debilitating disease. But now as more and more is being learned about acne, there are many new treatments being developed. There are all-natural highly effective treatments such as Derma Cleanse and Derma Pure, and for extremely severe cases where no treatments are working, stronger medications such as Accutane have shown proven results, but are not without their side affects.

During puberty boys and girls produce ‘male’ hormones called androgens. Boys tend to produce more, therefore, having more severe breakouts. Deep within each pore oil glands produce sebum, which travels to the surface of the skin to form a natural protector from the world. When androgens begin to develop, the oil glands begin producing too much sebum, which can clump together with dead skin cells clogging the pores. Essentially this traps oil and bacteria beneath the skin. The body’s natural defence goes to work with the end result of acne.

The best way to avoid acne is by prevention. Be sure to wash your face with a mild cleanser twice a day. Your skin needs sebum to stay healthy and over washing can have a negative affect causing your skin to overproduce more oil. One of the worst things you can do to acne is pick or squeeze at it. This can not only spread acne creating further breakouts, but also force bacteria deeper into the skin causing greater inflammation. Picking and squeezing can also cause permanent scarring.

The majority of acne cases can be treated and cured with all natural products like Derma Cleanse and Derma Pure, and for very extreme cases where no other treatment has been successful Accutane will get rid of acne. There is a wide range of natural, medicinal, and prescription treatments available and its just a matter of finding the one that will work for you. If treated in its early stages acne will seldom become severe, and the chances of clearing it up fast are greater.

The most important thing to remember is that it is not your fault. Breakouts do not occur due to eating too much junk food or wearing too much makeup, but are a natural part of being a teenager. The worst thing you can do is seclude your self by avoiding after school activities and social gatherings by letting acne run your life.
