Have you ever felt disgraced with acne on your face?
It is a common problem that most of the people are facing like you.
Acne is a very common skin disease.
There are some acne products that can assist you in controlling the acne.
Hormonal changes, birth control pills, oily or heavy makeup, stress, increased sebaceous gland secretion, drugs such as lithium, cosmetics, diet, high doses of vitamins, over abrasive cleansing, picking and squeezing, genes, environmental changes are some of the causes of acne.
To minimize excessive dryness and redness, start using low-strength acne products and slowly increase the strength and frequency of application, so that the skin will get adjusted to the acne products.
To suit for the different types of skin, acne products are made from different materials with different bases. Thus, before applying these products it is better to know the suitable product for your skin type.
If the base of the product is alcohol solution, the suitable skin type is oily. Likewise, aqueous solution suits normal-to-dry skin, creams, foams, and gels for normal-to-oily skin, lotions for any type of skin, and ointment for normal-to-dry skin.
If your skin type is oily, it is better to select a product that has dry base. For dry skin, use moisturize-based products and for normal skin, use neutral products. Thus, select acne products that suit your skin.
Some acne products work by removing the oils from the skin or remove the skin cells that are dead and speed up the growth of new skin cells. On the other hand, some OTC products kill the Propionibacterium acne, the bacteria that commonly found in acne pustules that cause acne inflammation.
The active ingredients that are used in acne products are benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, sulfur and resorcinol, and alcohol and acetone. Depending on the active ingredient the acne product works in different ways.
Benzoyl peroxide helps in removing excess oils from the skin and also removes dead cells that clog pores. It kills Propionibacterium acne.
Salicylic acid helps to slow shedding of the cells inside the hair follicles. It helps in breaking down whiteheads and blackheads.
Sulfur and resorcinol are mostly found together in acne products. These help in removing the dead skin cells that clog pores and also removes excess oil.
Alcohol and acetone are often available in astringents and cleansing products [Skin Care Cleansing]. They help in removing the oils and dirt from the skin.
