Really Great Tips On How to Get Rid Of Your Acne Forever!
First I want to define what Acne is. Acne is a skin disorder that mainly affects the oil glands of the skin. It usually comes about as a result of the blockage and infection of the follicles, tiny pores that connect the interior of the skin to the exterior and which transport liquid oils and other substances to the exterior of the skin. Your skins pores have many functions. When the pores are blocked or infected, the skin gets affected and the result is acne.
Acne is a problem that millions of people face all over the world. Acne is something that targets all age groups, not just teenagers. It is frustrating to me when I hear that Acne is only a teenagers problem. That is absolutely not true. Many adults are suffering with the problem of Acne, some even dealing with the scars left from Acne. Acne can even affect babies.
There are many practically proven ways to get rid of acne. Since Acne is caused by the blockage of the follicles, causing bacteria, then the best way to get rid of this condition, is to get rid of the bacteria that enhances Acne's formation and growth. Very specifically, the bacteria that gets blocked and grows in the pores of your skin, is the result that turns into the development of acne.
There are a few different things a person can do to get rid of the bacteria on their face. One is to use soaps or skin care gels, but those that contain benzoyl peroxide, an antibacterial combination. Both of these are very effective in killing the bacteria, and will prevent growth of new acne.
REMEMBER, the key to NO ACNE is to not to have any blockage of the pores in your skin. It is important to know, if your skin is softer, it is less likely to clog. There are ingredients within some skin care products products that work against the blockage of the pores of your skin. The one in particular is salicylic acid.. This can be found in a number of skin care products.
Another way to proceed with your treatment, is to find medicines that contain sulfur or sodium sulfacetamide. Both of these are amazing agents that fight acne, and will act very fast towards eliminating and preventing it.
The key to success in getting rid of your Acne, is you must be consistent and stick with the treatment. I have heard people say or get frustrated if they see no results relatively immediately. Do not expect wonders in like 2 weeks. The treatment can take as long as eight weeks to see great results. Don't get frustrated. It will happen. If you are taking any medicine take it specifically as prescribed by your consultant. The key is, you do not only want to suppress your acne. Many times it can come back worse that it was in the first place. Make sure you understand the side effects, if any, through your doctor, or a dermatologist.
The most general, and basic of things, is too keep your face clean at all times. Even if it means washing it several times a day. That will keep it from being oily, and most importantly, will keep your pores from clogging. Always make sure that the face towel that you use, and anything that you know have direct contact to your face, is clean and properly cleansed. If in doubt, change your towel.
