Acne: Do you have one?
Have you experienced a swelling in your skin? And then you tried
to pop it? Well after reading this you must now think twice
before popping that swell. Because that swell may be acne.
Acne is common to people nowadays. Acne is also known as pimples
or more scientifically, vulgaris. It is caused when your pores
get clogged causing an accumulation of fatty material from your
oil gland or sebaceous gland.
Not all your pores are affected by acne. The reason for this is
still a mystery. Because of the accumulation in the pores, a
swell may eventually appear which is known as blackheads or
whiteheads. Blackheads are not caused by dirt but by the
chemical reaction of the fatty material in the pores with the
air. Air causes the discoloration of the fatty material causing
a black "bump".
Acne has many different types along with different superstitious
beliefs, theories and treatments. These different types of
treatments may work for others but not on you because of acne's
complexity. So, don't just believe on what your friends tell you
or what the TV commercial promises with your acne. Those may
just be one of theories and superstitious beliefs.
We already know about the physical effects of acne (When you pop
it its causes more acnes or worse it becomes a life-long scar),
but how about its psychological effects? Teenagers with acne
tend to have lower self-confidence that leads to their feeling
of isolation and being awkward to their peers with clear skin.
Acnes made people cry, and angry. Thousands of people each year
are afflicted by it, and it makes recluses out of a good many
Teens are not the only one suffering from acne, adult acne is
also common nowadays. Unlike teen's acne, adult acne is due to
the changes that our skin goes
through as we mature. Scars
caused by acnes in adults are more severe than the scars of
teens with acne. Adults, unlike teens are less likely to find
treatment to their acnes, leaving them to suffer alone.
Acne has two main categories. It can be inflammatory acne or
non-inflammatory acne. Whether if you're an adult or a teen,
your acne may fall to one of these categories.
Blackheads and whiteheads are signs of non-inflammatory acne.
Unlike non-inflammatory acnes, inflammatory acnes are harder to
identify. Some symptoms of inflammatory acnes may be papules,
pustules and in more severe cases, nodules or cysts.
You can look for different kinds of treatments once you already
know on what category your acne falls. Always remember that if a
certain treatment didn't work for your acne, you can always try
some other treatments. The technology nowadays, has given rise
to new treatments. Researchers are now developing some new
treatments that might be the one your waiting for and might give
you the clear skin your longing for.
Another treatment which may be more effective is that avoid
grain products such as bread, corn, cereals and pastries. Also,
don't forget to always drink your vitamins because it may just
help you with acne. But still, these methods may not work for
you. Maybe, you should just use your own judgment in treating
your acne or just consult your dermatologist.
Now, do you still want to pop that swell?
