Prevention Is Time-tested Prescription For Acne
The American Academy of Dermatology has revealed that taking pains to have a clear, blemish-free complexion should no longer be considered vanity. Rather, people should see it as a preventive measure for the most common skin disorder affecting some 20 million people worldwide---- acne.
Acne vulgaris is predominantly a genetic disease that involves the skins sebaceous (the oil-producing) glands. It is characterized by both non-inflammatory lesions (blackheads and whiteheads) and inflammatory lesions (papules, pustules and nodules). It usually appears on the face but it also occurs on the neck, upper arms, back and legs. Acne generally begins at puberty and may continue throughout ones adult life due to higher levels of sebum or oil that is produced by the body as one matures.
Those who have oily skin are more prone to pimple or acne which is why proper care must be exercised. Acne, when mishandled or mistreated, will develop to more serious problems like embarrassing scars that are oftentimes difficult to treat.
But pimples or acne can be prevented. All it takes is a professionally-prescribed or traditionally-approved beauty regimen that is religiously followed.
Caring for the skin
Acne can be controlled by developing a good skin regimen. Washing the face with clean warm water and mild soap or facial wash will cleanse the skin, but dermatologists usually recommend products that are non-comedogenic as these do not clog the pores that may cause irritation to the skin.
For dry skin, apply a moisturizer to retain the skins moisture. This will also ensure a smoother feel and easier glide when applying make-up.
Eat a hefty amount of Vitamin A and E-rich foods. These vitamin food groups are the skins best friend. Drink lots of water, too.
Lead a healthy lifestyle. Give your skin the chance to rest especially at night when cell renewal is at its highest level.
Get professional advice
Avoid self-medication when dealing with skin problems. Consult a dermatologist and follow their advice. Remember that a dermatologist has less of a vested reason to guide your skin care program unlike the woman working behind a cosmetics counter.
Caring for the skin is a must since when the skin is given little attention, it shows.
