Acne – A Skin Disorder That Affects Adolescents and Adults

Were your preteen or teenage days filled with worry over acne and pimples?

Right before a big date, a dance, or the day you had to take a picture for your school's yearbook, you experienced an acne outbreak and you were an emotional and mental wreck.

More...

Those are common experiences of growing up many can identify with.

Acne is a disease which affects the oil glands in your skin. Predominantly a problem on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders in children and young adults aged 12 to 20 or so, although adults are not immune to the effects of acne.

Usually just frustrating and embarrassing, severe acne can cause lifelong scarring and other health problems.

How Does Acne Develop?

You have probably noticed tiny little holes in your skin, called pores. They are connected to the oil glands which are located just under your skin.

Those glands create a substance called sebum, which is very oily. At the root of your hair is a follicle, and this is how your pores connect to oil glands.

When everything is working properly, oil takes dying skin cells to the surface of the skin inside your follicles. When an excess of oil causes a follicle to clog up, bacteria multiply, and a pimple is formed. and you have developed the disease that is acne.

As mentioned earlier, acne is not a significant health threat. It can cause real damage emotionally, and lead children and teens, as well as full-grown adults, to avoid social interaction.

This can cause development issues, under-performance at work and school, and lowered self-esteem. Acne is not a serious problem for physical health, but mental and emotional states of being are often affected deeply, and not in a good way.

Who Gets Acne, and Why?

It is estimated that 80% of everyone between the ages of 11 and 30 will experience some acne outbreaks, but adults in their 40's or 50's may experience them as well.

Strides made in the last few decades in science and medicine have combined to extend

the average human lifespan significantly. Yet, we still have no idea what actually causes acne.

Sure, excess oil production combined with bacteria result in the pimple formation, but there is no definite explanation for what causes or triggers these outputs, or why they are more prevalent in some people and not others.

Multiple Factors Contribute to Acne

Dermatologists and other health experts believe that the massive hormonal increase in the teenage years can cause follicles to become clogged up more frequently than usual,  due to an increased release of oil.

Other hormonal changes, such as those experienced during pregnancy, seem to increase the incidence of developing acne.

If a woman stops or starts birth control pills the acne risk rises as well. Makeup that does not allow your pores to breathe properly might be a cause, and if your parents had problems with acne and pimples, you will probably get them to.

Prevention and Treatment is Available

The good news is that there are multiple treatment protocols for acne and pimples.

This helps prevent acne from developing, stops new pimples from being created, and can help prevent scarring that often accompanies acne.

Prescription and over-the-counter drugs and topical applications are the most common and successful acne treatments.

Hi guys! there are reasons why pimples pop up on certain areas on your face and that is why traditional Chinese medicine called the face "the window to your health"

forehead, eyebrows, cheeks, nose chin all of these zones indicate what is happening on the inside of your body

so I want to teach you the basics so next time when a pimple pops up in one of those zones you will know how to address a problem to the core

upper forehead is directly linked with the digestive system the large intestines and the bladder when you've got poor digestive going the body will have troubles breaking down food and there may be a large buildup of toxins

try to eat more antioxidant rich foods or drinks including green tea, lemon water and berries

lower forehead according to Chinese medicine this is associated with the mind and spirit if you have pimples popping up here it might be due to irregular sleeping patterns stress, depression, bad blood circulation and so on to avoid this problem try to sleep early ideally before 11 p.m.

And find ways to de-stress your mind maybe take a long bath watch your favorite movie do some meditation exercises or go on a spa day with your friends the nose reflects the heart caused by problems with blood pressure and stress again you need to find time to wind down

I heard retail therapy works just kidding! no,

not really the window to you liver lies between the eyebrows breakouts in this area might be caused by a diet that is high in fat and or too much consumption of alcohol so you know the solution is quite simple you know what to do or might I say you know what not to do

ever get stubborn and painful pimples on your ears?

that's when the kidneys are not taken care of kidney troubles are often caused by not drinking enough water and taking in too much salt and caffeine so be sure to drink plenty of water during the day to cut down on the sodium and caffeine and cleanse your kidneys to get rid of the pimples

right side of the cheeks corresponds to the lungs pimples grown here could be caused by allergies, respiratory stress and smoking you might need to take extra care of your respiration system and avoid smoking or smoking areas

the mouth area and the center of the chin is linked with the stomach and small intestine pimples showing up here could be caused by eating too much fast food or constipation try to eat more fresh foods with high fibers such as vegetables, fruits and whole grain foods the sides of the chin is linked with the reproductive organs and the kidney breakouts in this area is often associated with the menstrual cycle in women or some levels of hormonal imbalance or the kidneys working overtime most likely due to you putting yourself through extreme amounts of stress

so I say relax so traditional Chinese medicine is so profound what I have covered here is only the very basics and it's like the tip of the iceberg

I want to remind you beauty is not merely skin deep you have to take care of your skin and your health from the inside as well as your appearance
