The right approach to acne cure is to find out what is causing them in the first place. Learn about the factors triggering your skin problem and you will know how to deal with them. Sometimes, whatever we try doesn’t work and doesn’t cure acne. That’s because we haven’t identified the cause of the problem and didn’t attack it specifically.
Know Acne Causes
Scientists have determined three main factors that can cause acne. These are hormonal imbalance, genetic sensitivity of the sebum glands to this imbalance and also build up of some toxins. So, let’s starts with hormonal imbalance. Under some perfect circumstances, the amount of secreted hormones is ideal. These hormones affect the sebum glands located in the skin, which maintain skin perfectly moisturized and elastic. Hormonal imbalance, however, causes overproduction of sebum glands and the skin becomes very oily. This is the same for every single teenager, all over the world, but many of them don’t have acne.
Accumulation of the toxins is another factor, extremely important for development of acne. Everything we eat and drink and even the air we breathe may contain some toxic materials. Human body is designed to eliminate these harmful substances, but our skin, liver, kidneys, lungs and colon can’t eliminate everything. These substances tend to stay in the body and accumulate in the blood, lymph and other tissues in our body. Combination of these toxic buildups and excess skin oil provides the perfect environment for many bacteria. Bacterial infection causes acne redness, inflammation and puss. There is no point using antibacterial products to treat acne if you don’t treat the underlying causes. These anti-bacterial creams and lotions can’t do anything against the excess oils and hormone imbalance, and that’s why your acne keeps coming back.
Yet another factor contributes to acne and that is genetic predisposition. Your body (more specifically sebum glands in the skin) needs to be sensitive to the hormone imbalance and only then you will develop acne. If someone didn’t inherit this third factor, he or she usually won’t get acne. It might be unfair but it’s what it is.
What Can’t Cause Acne?
There are many misconceptions about acne. Clogged pores, some specific acne bacteria or vitamin deficiencies can’t cause acne, claim the experts. Eating wrong food is also not enough to be associated with the troubles acne may cause. Some believe that a weak liver is guilty for acne, but that’s not true. Stressed liver can contribute to hormonal imbalance but it is definitely not the root cause of acne.
