How to get rid of acne!!

How to get rid of acne is the BIG question.

The important information to understand is that everyone is different and therefore the treatment may change or take a different length of time. Butt the important things is to understand consistency and sticking to a routine and not giving up. Here is our basic starter routine for acne prone skin. 
  • Don't pick, poke, or try to remove them. This is more than likely to spread the germs and infect the area, not to mention leave you with scaring. 
  • Steam open your pores. 
Steam opens up your pores and helps loosen any buildup of dirt for a deeper cleanse. Opening up your pores also softens blackheads, making them easier to remove. It promotes circulation. The combination of warm steam and an increase in perspiration dilates your blood vessels and increases circulation. Try and do this at least once a week. 
  • Gently exfoliate the area. 
Use saffron brightening mask at least once a week. Exfoliating is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin using a chemical, granular substance, or exfoliation tool. Your skin naturally sheds dead skin cells to make room for new cells every 30 days or so. Sometimes, dead cells don't shed completely. Exfoliating can help prevent this. Exfoliating is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin using a chemical, granular substance, or exfoliation tool.

What is acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that affects most people at some point. It causes spots, oily skin and sometimes skin that's hot or painful to touch.

There are 6 main types of spot caused by acne:

  • blackheads – small black or yellowish bumps that develop on the skin; they're not filled with dirt, but are black because the inner lining of the hair follicle produces colour

  • whiteheads – have a similar appearance to blackheads, but may be firmer and will not empty when squeezed

  • papules – small red bumps that may feel tender or sore

  • pustules – similar to papules, but have a white tip in the centre, caused by a build-up of pus

  • nodules – large hard lumps that build up beneath the surface of the skin and can be painful

  • cysts – the most severe type of spot caused by acne; they're large pus-filled lumps that look similar to boils and carry the greatest risk of causing permanent scarring.

Acne is most commonly linked to the changes in hormone levels during puberty, but can start at any age.

Certain hormones cause the grease-producing glands next to hair follicles in the skin to produce larger amounts of oil (abnormal sebum).

This abnormal sebum changes the activity of a usually harmless skin bacterium called P. acnes, which becomes more aggressive and causes inflammation and pus.

The hormones also thicken the inner lining of the hair follicle, causing blockage of the pores. Cleaning the skin does not help to remove this blockage.

Acne is known to run in families. If both your mother and father had acne, it's likely that you'll also have acne.

Hormonal changes, such as those that occur during the menstrual cycle or pregnancy, can also lead to episodes of acne in women.

There's no evidence that diet, poor hygiene or sexual activity play a role in acne.

MILIA SPOTS

Milia are small white bumps that appear on the skin. They're usually grouped together on the nose, cheeks, and chin, though they may appear elsewhere. Milia develop when skin flakes become trapped under the surface of the skin, or when keratin builds up and gets trapped. 

 Hormonal Acne

Hormonal acne (also known as adult acne) is acne caused by genetic and hormonal factors that cause breakouts well past puberty and the teenage years. Hormonal acne occurs more often in women and is typically located on the lower part of the face.

Hormonal acne acne tends to appear around the chin and jawline. it is mainly triggered by stress or a sudden change in your body such as pregnancy.
