Dealing with Acne Problems

Acne is a widespread skin problem that usually affects everyone at some point in their lives. It can manifest on the skin in the form of whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples. While sometimes acne problems may go away in a few weeks, they leave behind bumps on the skin that may take time to heal.

According to the health experts, four significant problems cause acne: excessive oil (sebum) production in the skin, hair follicles getting clogged by oil and dead skin cells, bacteria attacking the skin, and any inflammation under the skin.

In most cases, acne affects areas such as the face, forehead, chest, upper back, and shoulders because they have the most oil (sebaceous) glands. The most common form of acne is pimples. They appear as raised red spots with a white center. Usually, they develop because the bacteria attack the already blocked hair follicles.

Here is a list of 4 things that can worsen the acne problem, so be careful.

1.    Hormonal changes. 

Usually, teens are the most affected with acne because they are going through constant hormonal changes, and their androgens levels are increasing. They can cause the sebaceous glands to enlarge and produce excessive sebum. Similarly, when women go through specific hormone changes during their midlife, they also face similar issues. 

2.    Medicines and Drugs. 

Some medications and drugs can also exacerbate acne problems. Mostly, any medicines that contain corticosteroids, testosterone, or lithium are known to worsen the acne. 

3.    Diet. 

Diet can also play a vital role in acne. The health experts believe that certain foods, particularly those rich in carbohydrates, can worsen acne. Moreover, dehydration or lack of water intake may also affect acne.

4.    Lifestyle

Taking care of skin and keeping it clean and moisturized with the right kind of products can prevent acne from growing.
