SKIN CONDITIONS AND SOLUTIONS
Are you in a constant battle with acne? You are not alone. Over 17 million people in the United States suffer from the effects of acne. Did you know that eight out of 10 teenagers experience some form of acne in their preteen or teenage years? And acne is not limited to teens; many women sadly reexperience acne problems as they advance into their menopausal years. Acne is a genetic disease of the follicle that can be managed but not cured. Here’s the science behind acne.
There are three components that allow acne to thrive in your skin: an excess of oil called sebum, dead skin cell buildup, and bacteria. These three can be found in any skin follicle. When our skin experiences retention hyperkeratosis (thickening of the skin’s outer layer), skin produces an overabundance of sebum that clings to dead skin cells creating a sludge-like solution within our skin, a perfectly gruesome environment for bacteria to flourish. This creates a micro-comedo (the early stage of acne lesion formation) within the follicle that can grow into an open or closed comedone, also commonly known as a blackhead or whitehead.
When acne triggers increased sebum production or dead cell retention, this also initiates more breakouts and larger, more problematic lesions. Scientists have not pinpointed specific factors that cause acne, but stress, hormonal fluctuations, compromised immune system, comedogenic cosmetics, improper skin cleansing and diet can all play a role in an acne condition.
