Acne-A Part Of Growing Up:

What Is Acne?
Acne is the general term for plugged pores, pimples, and deeper lumps that can occur on the face, neck, upper back, chest, or shoulders.It is a skin condition that occurs when the oil-secreting glands in the skin are clogged and become inflamed or infected.Acne is so common that it can almost be considered a normal part of growing up.While it affects the majority of teenagers, it can also appear later in life.Both boys and girls get acne but boys face the brunt because they have more skin oils.85% of adolescents develop acne.Among adults, 12% of women and 3% of men have acne.

How Does It Occur?
In order to understand how acne comes about, it is important to get an idea of how our skin functions.The skin contains numerous glands, called sebaceous glands, which secrete an oil, called sebum, that lubricates the skin and keeps it soft and pliable.The protective outer layer of the skin is made up of dead cells which are constantly shed and are replaced by new ones.In the teenage years hormones stimulate the growth of body hair and the oil glands secrete more oil.If not regularly cleaned the dead cells on the surface of the skin clump together, thereby plugging the hair follicle's opening, so sebum cannot reach the surface of the skin.Bacteria grow in these clogged pores and produce chemicals and enzymes that causes inflammation.When the plugged follicle cannot hold its contents any longer, it bursts and spills everything onto the nearby skin-sebum, shed skin cells, and bacteria.This irritates the skin and results in the developement of lesions or pimples, better known as whiteheads, blackheads and pustules.


Things That Often Make Acne Worse
1.Oil-based make-up, suntan oil, hair gels and sprays.
3.Menstruation in girls.
4.Squeezing or picking at blemishes.
5.Scrubbing the skin hard.


Do's And Don'ts In Treating Acne:
1.Avoid scrubbing your skin or using abrasive soaps.Hard scrubbing of the skin is harmful because it irritates the openings of thye oil glands and can cause them to be more tightly closed.
2.Avoid putting any oily or greasy substances on your face.Oily and greasy substances make acne worse by blocking the glands.If you must use cover-up cosmetics, use water-based cosmetics and wash them off at bedtime.
3.Avoid hair tonics or hair creams(especially greasy ones.When you sweat these substances will spread to your cafe and aggravate the acne.Try to keep your hair clean.
4.Don't stop your acne medicine too soon.

It takes about 8 weeks to see a good response.

Personal Habits And Acne
1.Wash your face 2 times a day with a gentle soap.Change your towel every day.Bacteria can grow on damp cloth.
2.Wash your hands often.It's a good idea not to touch your face.Don't rest your face on your hands while you study, read, or watch TV.
3.Don't Squeeze, pick, scratch, or rub your pimples.You may get scars.
4.Shampoo your hair at least twice a week.Pull your hair away from your face when you sleep.Style it away from your face during the day.
5.When choosing make-up, women should be sure to choose water-based, oil-free cosmetics.
6.Wash as soon as you can after you exercise.
7.If certain foods seem to make your acne worse, do not eat those foods.
8.Try not to work in hot kitchens where greasy foods are cooked.
9.Try not to get sunburnt.
10.Try not to become stressed.Take some quiet time, get exercise, or talk to a counsellor, if needed.
11.Talk to your doctor.Keep a record of the medicines you have tried.Write down how they have worked.Don't give up.Keep working with your doctor until you find a way to keep your skin clear.
