Tracking The Causes of Acne

acne treatment You eat healthy, drink lots of water and are diligent about washing your face every night and every morning… and then there it is anyway, another acne flare-up. You aren’t alone. People of every age can find themselves dealing with the unsightly appearance of their skin because of recurring acne flare-ups. Take heart. We can help. Read on to learn about three of the causes of acne:

  • Bacteria. Acne loves and feeds on germs and bacteria. So, don’t touch your face and don’t pick at your facial skin. Your daily face-touching rituals when relaxing at home, at work or when you sleep can add unhealthy and unwanted bacteria to your facial skin – making any existing acne much worse and resistant to treatment.
  • Clogged Pores. Your pores play an integral part in your body’s overall health. Their purpose is to move waste products like sweat from your body to help it maintain a healthy equilibrium. But your pores can easily become obstructed, and when that happens, acne can be a result. A sure-fire way to combat this acne trigger is to keep your face clean with a morning and night skin care routine – wash your face and never go to bed without removing your make up.
  • Too Much Oil. Your skin needs oil to stay moist, bright and youthful. But when your skin produces too much oil, your risk of acne increases. With hormonal changes comes excessive oil production. That’s why teens going through puberty suffer from acne. Many adults must also deal with hormonal imbalances and may find they need treatment for adult acne as they age.
