Acne is a generic term used to describe pimples,
whiteheads, blackheads, cysts and other skin
blemishes. It is caused by clogged pores that get
inflamed, impacted and infected. Proper skin care and
gentle cleaning is the first line of defense against acne.
Unnatural oils from cosmetics and foodstuffs should be
avoided. Avoid touching your skin in acne affected
areas and never pop your pimples. You should
seriously consider consulting trained medical personnel
if acne persists or becomes a serious problem.

Avoid Bad Oils
Undesirable oils are one reason your pores can
get clogged. These oils can come from oil based
cosmetics for the face and hair. They also come
from cooking oil and grease that is contained in
food products. You may want to consider putting
the kibosh on fast food and cheese curls for
awhile. To keep things short, pay close attention
to the gunk you are slathering on your face and
stuffing into your mouth.
Acne is a generic term for pimples whiteheads,
blackheads, cysts and other skin blemishes that occur most commonly on the
face and frequently on the back and chest. Technically, acne is an infection that
occurs when your sebaceous glands become clogged by nasty stuff like dead
skin cells and undesirable oils. Sebaceous glands surround your hair follicles and
are supposed to release a helpful oil called sebum that is beneficial to the health
of your skin. When sebum cannot be released it backs up and becomes inflamed
and infected. The plugged and infected pores become red and tender and, voila,
there is your acne.

wonder drugs, namely Accutane and related products, that may be prescribed for the
most severe cases of acne. But is there relief for milder outbreaks? You bet there is!

Who Gets Acne?
Almost everyone gets acne at one
point in their life. Although acne
predominantly affects adolescents
and teenagers, about 20% of all
cases occur in adults. Cases can be
as mild as an occasional isolated
pimple or as severe enough to cause
deep permanent scarring.
No matter how much you want to, use some self control and do
not pop your zits. In fact, do not even touch them. Your hands
and fingers contain dirt, grime oil and other contaminants that will
simply add to your facial blemish problem. Pimple popping may
provide short term relief from the occasional whitehead, but in the
long run you are more likely to cause damage to your glands by
Refrain from Popping
Cleaning your face is important, but don’t go crazy. Mild
soaps are the way to go. Avoid harsh products that promise to
rip away facial oils. Remember, your body produces oils that
are beneficial to your skin and you want these oils to continue
to flow through unclogged pores. Overzealous cleaning can
irritate and damage the sebaceous glands that produce the
good oils and make a bad situation even worse. The best
washing strategy calls for gentle cleaning on a regular basis.
