Do you have a question about acne? Do you want to know what acne is, what causes it, or how to get rid of it? Probably the answers to all three of these questions would be helpful to know, since no one wants repeated outbreaks of acne. Whether you are experiencing acne as an adult, pre-teen, or teenager, it is no joke. Whether your acne has broken out on your face, shoulders, arms, or lower body, it is a horrible nuisance, at best. Just as with any problem, getting at the heart of the acne problem is a must if you want to stop it in its tracks. In basic terms, acne is a skin condition resulting from clogged pores. One can wash regularly and still end up with acne.

This is the frustrating truth about a frustrating condition called acne. Although a simple word, acne is not a simple foe. And acne is not a simple condition; rather, it begins with clogging of the pores. A skin pore – or sebaceous follicle – contains an oil gland, designed to lubricate the skin. Acne appears when a pore is burdened with soaps, cosmetics, and environmental substances. Once the pore is blocked with such external debris, it chokes up and cannot function properly. At this point, potential acne is presented with a friendly breeding ground of bacteria. If not dealt with properly, acne growth begins and continues to mature. This acne growth can produce an outside plug. If the acne plug is white or light in colour, it is referred to as a “whitehead.” If the acne plug is black or dark in colour, it is called a “blackhead.” Either way, acne has at this point become obvious. If left unchecked, the bacterial growth in the pores can spread and show up as inflammation to the surrounding area of the initial acne.

The inflammation that acne can cause also has the potential of developing into painful, unsightly cysts. Acne cysts carry infection. Any infection can be dangerous to the overall organism; acne bacterial infections are no different. Aside from the health danger, acne cysts, if not treated cautiously and properly, can result in scarring. Any one of these symptoms tells us it is high time to take some serious correction action. For a start, finding the answers to your particular case of acne involves knowing your skin condition and how your skin reacts to different so-called acne remedies. A good first question to ask yourself might be, “Am I cleaning my skin as well as I think I am?” If the answer to that is an affirmative, the next question might well be, “What is it that I’m putting on and into my skin that is causing the acne?” And yet another question could be posed: “What medications am I taking, or processed foods am I eating, that are causing this acne problem?” Acne is a symptom of something not going right with your body. We know that every symptom has a cause. The cause of acne is well worth investigating, if we want to rid ourselves of this unnecessary condition. If we believe our diets are healthful and we think the acne is not caused by antibiotics or other medications – because we’re not taking any – we’re ready to begin a more positive remedy. That positive remedy to remove acne and its breeding ground begins with a clean, freshly scrubbed skin.
