Acne is one of the most common skin conditions, and it affects millions of people across the globe. Acne occurs when pores on the skin become blocked by excess oil, dirt, and dead skin cells. When these pores become blocked, bacteria can start to build up, leading to inflamed breakouts and other acne-related symptoms such as whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, cysts, and even scarring.
Understanding how acne works can help you take control of your skin and find effective ways to treat it. Here is everything you need to know about how acne works and how to treat it:
Acne is caused by hormones, genetics, poor lifestyle choices (such as a lack of sleep or an unhealthy diet), and clogged pores from excess sebum production. Hormonal changes can play a role in exacerbating existing acne conditions, such as during puberty or pregnancy. Hormones stimulate sebum production, which leads to clogged pores that cause breakouts. Genetics contribute to more severe forms of acne, like cysts and nodules. Eating a diet high in refined carbohydrates and sugar may promote inflammation throughout the body, which may cause breakouts. Not getting enough sleep or being stressed can have a similar effect. On top of that, not washing your face regularly or using comedogenic products like oil-based makeup can cause blockages in pores that will lead to pimples.
Following certain steps can help you manage symptoms and reduce breakouts over time.
If your self-care remedies don’t seem to be working, the 3D AcneCure Peel is an effective acne treatment option for you! It is a salicylic acid peel – a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) – which targets the oil glands that produce sebum that leads to acne. Salicylic acid is able to get deep into the pores, which helps to clear out any blockage or dirt that may be causing breakouts or other issues with skin health. In addition to its ability to treat acne symptoms effectively, this treatment also has anti-inflammatory properties that help provide relief for inflamed breakouts or areas with acne. With proper treatment, acne should no longer be something that keeps you feeling down about your skin!
