How to Treat Acne

Acne is due to inflammation of the sebaceous glands and an overproduction of sebum that leads to the formation of papules, pustules, comedones, cysts, and even spots. Who does it affect? Especially in teenagers, but it is also common in adults.

The sebaceous glands are located at each hair and are responsible for producing sebum, which is useful for keeping the skin soft and protected. If, however, the skin, as happens for example during adolescence, produces too much sebum, this accumulates by clogging the pores (or rather, the hair follicle from which the hair is born) and forming a “plug” that gives rise to what we call a white spot.

If the “cap” breaks and the sebum, in contact with oxygen, oxidizes and becomes dark, you will have a blackhead instead. If, on the other hand, the “plug” resists, sebum will accumulate under the skin causing inflammation and consequently the typical acne pimple or pimple.

Acne: the causes

The causes of acne can be different:

  • Genetic predisposition: as always, genetics and a natural congenital predisposition can come into play. If you have people in your family who suffer from acne, we recommend that you consult a dermatologist right away to understand how to prevent it.
  • Bacterial causes: If the skin is out of balance, the bacterium Propionibacterium acnes, which occurs naturally on the skin, can aggravate the situation, cause inflammation and therefore trigger or worsen acne.
  • Hormones: hormones also play an important role (hormonal acne), which can stimulate an overproduction of sebum at certain times of our lives, for example during adolescence (it is called juvenile acne), during pregnancy, with menopause or when we have a menstrual cycle.

Other factors may be among the causes, or worsen the initial situation. Let’s see them in the following paragraphs! πŸ‘‡

Acne and stress

According to some studies, stress hormones stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce sebum in abundance, thus promoting the formation of pimples and impurities.

πŸ€— So try to balance study or work activities with leisure activities and have quality time to take care of yourself, play sports, cultivate hobbies or do what makes you feel good!

Acne and pollution

Did you know that fine dust and other pollutants can penetrate the skin’s protective barrier, weaken it and alter the composition of sebum, clogging pores, and thus making the skin oilier and more impure?

πŸ’§ This is why Double Cleansing is so important! Remember to do it every day!

Acne and nutrition

🧁 Scientific studies do not agree in highlighting a relation between diet and acne, however, there are those who argue that a diet rich in foods with a high glycemic index, such as sugary drinks, refined carbohydrates, foods and juices sweetened with large amounts of sucrose, white bread, sweets and other foods containing a lot of simple sugars, can cause inflammation and therefore promote the appearance of annoying pimples.

πŸ₯— Reducing the amount of these foods in your diet could alleviate acne. What to eat if you have acne? It is advisable to include in your diet the right amount of vegetables, legumes, whole grains, foods rich in fiber, minerals and vitamins. To find the right diet for you, consult a nutritionist.

Acne and sun

β˜€οΈ When we expose ourselves to the sun for a long time, the surface layer of our skin thickens, causing more clogged pores and consequently more production of pimples and blackheads. The myth that the sun makes acne disappear is to be debunked! In fact, the aesthetic improvement due to tanning is only temporary. It’s always best to protect your skin with a good sunscreen.

Acne & Cosmetics

⚠️ Wrong skincare can affect the balance of the skin and therefore also its health: what are the two most common mistakes? Those who suffer from acne and pimples often tend to cleanse too aggressively and skip moisturizing!

Those with oily skin, in fact, tend on the one hand to want to “degrease” the skin with aggressive products and to massage the cleanser for too long and too insistently; on the other hand, not to moisturize the skin, because, feeling it oily, it is afraid of weighing it down.

In reality, these two mistakes provoke the opposite reaction: the skin, feeling attacked and dry, defends itself by producing even more sebum! Read on to find out how to best use cosmetics and how to set up your skincare to deal with acne πŸ‘‡

Acne scars, how to get rid of them

Here’s what you need to know if you want to get rid of acne scars: Scars are due to the skin’s inability to regenerate as a result of injuries due to inflammation, pimples, and blackheads. If treated immediately, the lesions do not leave marks, but when the inflammation degenerates and lasts over time, the skin is no longer able to regenerate the scarred areas, which in this way remain visible, with bumps or “holes“.

Acne spots usually appear on the face, but also on other parts of the body such as shoulders, back, and sternum. There are different types of spots: they can be hollow like dimples, the famous “acne holes”, or elongated or raised.

To minimize or eliminate acne scars, in addition to pulsed light, LED, laser or radiofrequency treatments, it is recommended to do peeling and exfoliating treatments.
