Acne is a disease

Acne - An Introduction

Some quick information on what acne is and what kind of action you may have to take to clear your acne.  This article is the first in a series of articles that will give you information on how to clear your acne or other skin disorders. Acne is the most common skin disorder.  Over 10% of Americans age 25 - 44 have acne.  Over 85% Americans age 12 - 25 will have acne at one time or the other.



If ignored, acne can become infected, create scars, and pockmarks that become permanent on your face. I don't want this to happen to you, so I have written a series of articles on how to clear your acne.  

Acne is a disease

Acne is a disease called seborrhea or seborrheic dermatitis.  It occurs when the sebaceous glands, under your skin, become contaminated with oily toxic matter, which contains,


  • dirt
  • dead skin
  • excess sebum oil
  • acid waste
  • bacteria
  • toxic matter



Under normal conditions the sebaceous glands release oil that comes up through your pores onto the skin surface.  This release keeps your skin moist and lubricated for protection from the environment.

If your pores on your face are not open or plugged, this creates toxic oil that cannot move out onto your skin.  This results in a growth or pimple that start to increase in size as more toxic oil tries to reach the surface of your skin.

If the pore walls burst under the skin, white blood cells move in to digest the collagen around the pores.  When this happens, you will have scars on your face.

To avoid having scars, you need to start an acne-clearing program before you get acne or just as soon as you see acne coming so that your pimples and back heads don't get to the point where they get severely infected and burst.

Clearing Your Acne
 
Acne is a complex condition that involves many parts of the body even though it shows up as only eruptions on the face and else where on your skin.  It is a signal that you have problems elsewhere deep within your body.  Acne can be caused by a toxic colon, poor digestion of food, weak liver and other conditions that cause the blood to carry too much toxicity.

To clear acne it is not always possible to just do one thing and expect acne to go away.  But it may be possible to just use a special cream and have your acne diminish or clear.

Acne may go away by just doing one thing but don't expect it to.  A facial cream, diet, herbal treatment, and colon cleanse alone may not be able to clear acne.  A combination may or may not work.


Acne - Avoid Comedogenic Products


Acne avoidance needs lot of care. Use of products play a big role in Acne. If you use a product that can cause comedos- whiteheads and blackheads, you are inviting acne. to avoid acne you should use all products that are certified non- comedogenic. Let us find out what is comedogenicity and how to keep skin clear of acne?

Acne And Comedogenicity

Most of the materials that are used for skin and body care are tested for comedogenicity. For that test, the material is applied on the inside of rabbit's ear and the site observed after three weeks. A biopsy is taken and comedones counted. Depending on the comedone formation, the material is classified on a scale of 0 to 5. A material with 0 comedogenic potential will not cause comedones, while one with 5 will cause comedones in the largest quantity.

Acne- Skin Care Formulations

Here, please note that a skin care product may contain more than one ingredient. The manufacturer will label the product as comedogenic or non-comedogenic. Please use non-comedogenic product. Appearance of the product may not indicate its comedogenicity.

Acne Care- Select Products

Acne care needs use of products after careful consideration. Use non-comedogenic products and if after using a product for sometime you find comedones increasing, stop usage for sometime and see the result. You r own judgment will guide you. Keep your skin free of acne.
