Fight Against Acne

In our world of so many adolescents and young adults like me, there is a deep fear of being afflicted by the dreaded skin condition called acne. Like most teenagers who have no pimples on their faces, I also fear that they may prop up due any time I suffer stress and lack of sleep.

I have been afflicted with acne, it may seem that the number of pimples on my face increases at the wrong times. My examples are like two days before my school's annual reunion where my face got covered with pimples, a day before a date and two days before the presentation at the office. I guess by now you know that this annoying skin problem shows no mercy or respect for anyone. It does not matter who you are or how healthy you may think you are, pimples (zits) can appear on your face at any time. But instead of following my instinct of "popping" the pus-filled acne pimple, which could cause severe acne scarring, I know that I can do something else to avoid its occurrence, which is proper acne control.

The most annoying thing about acne is that although the main causes of acne have to do with hormonal and chemical imbalances in the body, there are about a dozen factors that could worsen my acne situation. I know for a fact that a pimple is formed when there is an inflammation in the hair pore, which is caused by a blockage that prevents oil from reaching the skin surface.

A few of the factors that worsen your acne problem includes my biological history side effects from the use of some drugs, picking at or squeezing at the pimples, scrubbing my skin harshly, Cosmetic products that are oil based, Stress, illness or exhaustion, Heat and moisture, and inappropriate diet.

The only skin regimen that ensures that your acne is kept well under control includes the following steps: cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. Following these three skin care steps are guaranteed to result in an improvement in your skin condition and ensures you have a smoother skin texture. And if we are serious about achieving acne control then we should consider doing this skin regimen twice a day, in the morning and in the evening.

Only use a quality anti-acne cleanser that is suitable for your skin type. For sensitive skin like me, I use Anti-Acne Oatmeal Facial Scrub that is specially formulated for that skin type. It is mild and very in deep cleansing our pores.

Make sure to use a quality Anti-Acne Oatmeal Facial Scrub cleanser on your face. Cleansers like those of the Clear pores and the Healthy pores acne systems have antibacterial agents that scrub your skin removing dirt and dead cells. Also, the ingredients contained in these cleansers penetrate deep in your skin and improves your complexion. When using cleansers, you should avoid scrubbing your face hard, the cleansers should do the scrubbing for you. A quality skin care product like the Anti-Acne Oatmeal Facial Scrub contains a special ingredient to guarantee you complete acne control.


It may seem quite depressing to know that my skin problem could be worsened by so many factors. But I know that I don't worry as there are several things that I could do to help me in my fight against that Acne.
