Acne: what is it and how to deal with it?
Acne is an inflammation of the skin in a result of the disruption of the biological functions of the body and / or the negative influence of the environment. In adolescence, almost everyone suffers from acne and related problems. But when we enter adult life, this kind of skin inflammation has a much more negative impact on our appearance and self-esteem. Therefore, it is important not only to effectively deal with this problem, but also to understand its essence and origin. So what actually is acne?
What is acne? Medical explanation.
Acne is a skin disease, an inflammatory process that occurs as a result of a metabolic disorder of the skin, a metabolic disorder, or the negative effects of the environment. Acne is also included in this type of inflammatory diseases. Acne does not appear only in adolescence. It is important to understand that for every age acne is possible. First of all, on skin areas with large number of sebaceous glands - the face, chest, back - suffer. It is rather simple to check your own problem zones - it is enough to clean the skin on any of these areas, and after an hour to test it with a soft paper tissue - if the fat trail remains, it will be clear that this zone is a problem area.
The basic mechanism of acne formation is quite simple - the pores of skin secrete a greasy secret almost all the time. With their enhanced work, clogged pores occur. The sebaceous cork oxidizes, turns black (hence the black points appear) and interferes with the release of the sebaceous secretion. The latter accumulates in the skin, and bacteria begin to multiply feeding on it, and thus creating an inflammatory process, provoking rashes and further growth of acne. But understanding the mechanism does not give us an understanding of the causes of acne. Let's try to figure out how they appear and what is the main cause of this skin disease.
The causes of formations provoking acne.
Acne is caused by many reasons. Often, one reason aggravates the other, and environmental degradation or dry air at certain times of the year are universal stimulants for the onset of acne. The skin dries out, the sebaceous glands tend to compensate for drying and respond to excess fat. Excessive moisture can also cause for acne. Stress and reduced immunity should also be taken into account. 90% of all diseases are caused or at least aggravated by stressful conditions, and acne is no exception from this. Infection of the skin can cause illness, and this already requires serious medical intervention. Vitamin deficiency, as well as heredity can be attributed to the last in frequency but not the least important factor in the development of skin inflammation. Summarizing, we can conclude that acne appears under the following conditions:
- Imbalance in the body or impaired immunity
- Inflammatory processes or diseases
- Abrupt environmental change or stress
- Harmonic disruptions and disorders caused by vitamin deficiency.
- Bad heredity.
